Adam: have you ever shaved your pubic hair?
Me: no, ew... Honey, I don't even shave my legs
Adam: sorry. i was just curious
Me: that's okay, I'm just expressing a point
Adam: ok, i see your point
Me:why should I have to shave, when you don't?
Adam: I dont know
Me: Would you date a girl with unshaven legs, or do you think it's gross?
Adam: I would,i don't think it's gross
Me: good, it's just so unreasonable. It really pisses me off, but I'll stop now
Adam: continue if you like
Me: okay... In this society all people are supposed to be equal, no matter gender race or sexual orientation, so why is it gross when I don't shave my legs?
Am I not forfilling some expectation?
It's like you're expecting me to be a meek stay at home mom who lives to breed
Adam: mmhmm
Me: Sorry, I know you couldn't care less
Adam: i don't mind if you rant
Me: That's alright, I'm done

Poor Adam, he's always the butt of my rants...

interesting discussion. :) I couldn't go either way. I like the way my legs fell when they are nice and smooth - but I don't do it regularly, because it's just too much effort and i feel like it is often unnecessary...

Men aren't expected to shave? How many beards do you see on all them Hollywood stars and other celebrities? And I don't think I see many beards in porn, straight or gay.

I would argue that the amount of women who are fine with beards is about equal to the amount of men who are okay with leg hair.

Culture is the problem, period. These little "rules" we live by (largely in place merely to distinguish us from other cultures; dietary taboos play a similar role) are merely symptoms of that underlying disease. Abandon culture and we can do whatever we want, we'll be free.

I like girls that shave their legs and pubic hair. It's much more sanitary.

I shave my pubes as well. I shave my face from time to time.

People that don't shave or trim their pubes aren't very clean at all.

You're some silly feminist monkey that likes to have her banana and eat it too. Welp, I've news for you - the world doesn't revolve around you, tootsie.

Also, what's with your fetishization of gays? You do understand they are simply people likes anyone else, right? There's no need to put them on some untouchable pedestal. That's as bad a treating them with no respect at all.

Hey "anonymous" -

Shaving has nothing to do with cleanliness. You can be clean shaven and stink to high heaven - trust me, I've seen it.

Do you shave your legs? Armpits? Chest hair?
