What are your thoughts on shaving?
As someone who is seen as a woman, it is expected that I will shave my legs and underarms religiously, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. As of a couple of years ago I stopped shaving my legs and it felt very good. I was scared, at first, to wear shorts, but am now totally comfortable with it. Then I stopped shaving my underarms except for when I would be wearing something that would show my underarm hair. But very recently I have stopped shaving my underarms altogether.
As with my legs before, I am terrified of letting anyone see this hair, but unwilling to shave it off. It just seems like underarm hair is a way bigger deal and I will be judged more harshly for it. I’m tired of avoiding raising my arms above my head when I wear a tank top.
What do you think? Do you have any advice?
