It's in a similar vein to the extremely poor taste 'jokes' about domestic violence and people saying "lighten up" when you don't laugh. Domestic abuse is not a subject for humour and nor is societal expectations of what women are supposed to look like.

    This "femmo" reserves the right to not make light of something she feels passionately about.
    There's a big difference in joking about underarm hair and joking about domestic violence....

    They both serve to trivialize and undermine women's self empowerment, that's the point I'm trying to make.

    Slightly off topic, but not, apparently men where instrumental in encouraging women to shave their armpit hair because the hair (apparently) acts as a conduit for pheromones which aligned womens menstrual cycles, and shaving meant that there were always some women available for s3x.

    I shave every second day. Hate hair there and hate stubble. I dont like how it looks on women but hey, whatever floats their boat. If they want a big bush sprouting from anywhere on their body, more power to them.....I just personally find it unattractive on women.

    Gag! I just think its dirty and unhygenic. Not to mention too manly.

    Or have times changed and hairy armpits are now 'in'?
    Or do people really not notice/care?
    I know in some cultures they don't shave. But I personally think its a bit icky. I shave every few days. Sometimes I might forget then wake up the next day an be like AHHHH MY GOSH. But that dosnt happen to often lol I like a guy who is hairy btw lol not over the top and not down there. But legs and under arms and arms. They just look manly to me.

    I think armpit hair is gross on women. Call me a brainwashed bimbo but it freaks me out. When we were in Italy we met my cousin (she's in her 50's), she was giving us directions somewhere and pointed and put up her arm and yep, full of hair.

    Whatever floats your boat but I don't really want to see it. Maybe non shavers should wear longsleeved clothing to help those of us with sensitive dispositions?
