that is a question -
I just finished reading a fabulous article by Mayim Bialik.
As some one who went into puberty early I did most things early. I did shave my legs starting at about 10 years old. To me that is early. Too early - Tho girls are doing it earlier from what I understand. Peer pressure, the internet, over bearing parents who want their children to conform....I do not care for any of it.
I used to wax everything. I have also lasered. At one time there was not a hair on my body other than my head, lashes and brows.
And then one day I realized this is so NOT who I am. Yes, I shave my legs in the summer. I am always in shorts or short skirts and I am not comfortable with hairy legs in summer. Winter however is totally different. I could care less. As I got older - past 40 - the hair stopped coming in as thick. YAY! One of the many bonuses of being over 40. I usually keep my pits shaved ...but not always. I only do that to be polite to others. I dont care. Other pieces and parts? I gave up the war on public hair long ago. I am not even sure what started the war. The internet - I always blame the internet. Agism too. Sorry boys (not that there are a lot of people viewing my nethers) but, I am not shaving or waxing anymore. I will give the complimentary trim tho. TMI - I know!
Anywho -- What about you? What are your thoughts on the war with your body hair?
ps - I AM vain as hell - I know, it's a sin. But still - I like nice clothes, shoes, make up, etc. I just do not think I have to remove all of the hair on my body to be pretty.
Have a happy day and congratulations on now knowing more about me than you wanted to!! It will get worse, I promise! ;)
