I would proudly stop shaving my legs but my hair is to thick and dark and I personally don’t like hair on my body ( except hair on my head, eyebrows, and eyelashes )

My mom has never shaved her legs in her life and she has the silkiest smoothest legs! If she does see like one little hair she just tweezes it off and that’s it

I don't want to play along with how femininity should be.... I'm heading into a difficult part in growing up and if I get bullied or judged for my natural leg hair so be it. I want to be able to be happy with my body and not alter it for others ideals. Not against shaving... I do shave my armpits but the choice should be made by yourself and no one else.

I've never shaved and never will. But I barely have any hair on my arms or legs and zero on my armpits so I don't care 😂

I’m a burlesque dancer and a Cuban salsa instructor and I get so embarrassed about the hair on my arms but don’t care about my legs at all. When I lift my arms I internally cry because I don’t like shaving and hurting myself, (I have lymphatic issues and shouldn’t shave my armpits anyways) but wish I was hairless.
Joy May Panilagan
Filipina women shave armpits and down there but they don't shave legs. Shaving legs is like too much for them. If you shave your legs, when they grow again, the hair will be thicker. Why not accept our natural hair? Accepting natural beauty is better than making too much effort to beautify yourself.

I have a question!! In the video you talked about your mom telling you “you can never go back” but then you did. Do you feel like it is worse (thicker, more prickly or uncomfy) because you had shaved in the past? Im trying to decide if I should shave because I love the smooth feeling but also know I might decide later in life to stop. I know this is an old video but thoughts?

So one year for Halloween I dressed up as Cinderella for school and a boy that was in my class but transferred to a different class because of this reason I cannot remember but what I do remember was that on Halloween I overheard him telling his friend why is that boy dressing up as Cinderella and I got really sad about that and I started shaving but now I'm like I don't care anymore just leave me alone like be who you want to be don't care if some boys or girls are making fun of you because you have leg hair and arm hair it does not matter you grow it you could have it, it's a part of your body not theirs and it only "bothers" them because they're staring and they're sharing because you are you no one else

Gillette now markets to feminists, saying, ' Be FREE from the patriarchy! Use our MAN-Made Razors!! '. What a bunch of clowns. Anyone remember when feminists were opposed to shaving? Everything is backwards now, because people are easily-manipulated. Great video.

The real reason you quit shaving your legs is because it grows thicker every week or some other time

I’ve shave my legs a lot when it “mattered” back when I was in middle school, now I shave my legs whenever I’m going somewhere fancy or I just feel in the non lazy mood to shave. My boyfriend really doesn’t care if my legs are hairy cause he loves me enough because he loves me for being me. (He is such a sweetheart about this) besides that I normally where t-shirts and jeans like all the time and wear shorts (and shirts) at home do just my family and my boyfriends really knows about the leg hair situation.

I am a swimmer, so I spend a lot of my days in nothing but a pair of brief swimmers. I let ALL my body hair grow out because i have learned that my body hair is beautiful. People have been like, "but don't you feel embarrassed around boys... or like people in general?" and I answer is no. I will never be ashamed of body hair ever.

Once my friend was basically laughing at me because I have what she calls "boy legs", and one time I shaved cause I WANTED TO and she was TELLING ALL THE BOYS I did it, and one of them was like "Yeah, so?", She said "She never does it" I must clarify I did it way too often so I don't know why she said that, anyways his response was "why do you even care if she does it or not" you guys have no idea how glad I was to hear that, the sad thing is that I'm just 14 years old

In my opinion shaving arms and legs isn't necessary, but you should regularly shave(or trim) your private area and underarm for hygiene
Jess Melgar
Jess Melgar 18 days ago
It’s actually less hygienic to do that, and you have a higher risk of contracting STIs. So shaving private areas is still realistically a you do you situation.

alice hatterz 21 day ago
No, this had to do with fashion and feeding off of womens insecurities, insecurities they created. Shorter dressed, open sleeves etc. Were said to have required shaving and removing the hair. Just another ploy. Don’t shave especially if you don’t want to or it is tedious for you , most people either won’t care or will get used to it.

My mom didn’t let me shave till 15 I’ve been 15 for 5 months and I really don’t care, I only shave when I go to a party or I have a meet for swim but I rarely shave, my teammates just don’t care, we just go on like normal

Personally, I just shave my legs because it makes me physically uncomfortable to have hair on my legs. But whatever makes you happy :)

I only shave my legs for special occasions or vacations where I was going to show my legs alot but other than that I dont care. Plus my hair dont grow that long so no one notice unless they really staring at them and idc what others think about it either. I shave everywhere else though such as my underarms because of appearance and I dont like the feeling of it and that my preference not anyone else's.

bumblekittyTV 27 days ago
My leg hair grows back really slowly so I can go like 2 and a half weeks before the hair on my legs are really that visible and like a month before it’s fully grown back but the thing is once it’s fully grown back it’s REALLY hairy like when I was in middle school I always wondered if other girls legs were as hairy as mine like guys never shaved their legs but there was like no hair on them but girls shaved there legs so I didn’t get why girls legs were hairier but anyway now I know it’s because girls are growing during middle school and guys grow during high school well usually

When you already are in an ltr and work in an environment where you have to cover your legs for safety 👌
I didn't shave my legs until I was in 6th grade and I did it because girls kept saying I should shave. Yeah the first time I shaved was nice and soft and it stayed shaved for a while, but now I have to keep up with it and it grows back after a day and it's more of a chore. I miss having smooth legs but it sucks that if I don't do it people are gonna make fun of me.
