    I quit shaving my legs also! I live in southern Florida so I wear shorts constantly. It bothers absolutely no one ever. I like the sea wind blowing through my hair. It is an awesome feeling! Who ever came up with the shave task is crrrazy! I can't not shave my armpits because I have become to used to it not being there. But my legs still look awesome and I will never ever shave again. No more shaving!

    I dont like body hair on myself but I always wear pants so. I do shave when it gets super long it's like a cleanse and I love the softness of blankets on them. It's kind of like a special treat lol. Really - do what you want with your body hair but do it for yourself.

    Yeah that’s exactly why I stopped shaving my legs women shouldn’t have to be embarrassed or forced to think they have to shave to be a beautiful women or think that it matters men don’t have to shave unless it’s their beard or their significant other doesn’t like hair(you don’t have to shave for your significant other to feel or be loved)that’s it and the other stuff is mostly working out which is hard but compared to women it’s easy.I don’t hate men but in some regard it is easier than what women go through.

    why does everyone have to be so negative? regardless of your opinion towards buzzfeed as a whole, this video is powerful. dont give it hate for spreading positivity. if you dont agree, dont start an argument. she explained in the video that you can do whatever you want, why do you have a problem with that? and to those guys saying youd break up with a girl or think its gross, not all women like your hair either, so grow a pair and deal with it. and to the women who think not shaving is wrong, sorry you got brainwashed. even if you, as a woman, still want to shave, thats ok, but dont think negatively of those who dont.
    a message to everyone: you have an opinion. now shut it.

    Not sure if this was an oversight:
    - said hair removal wasn't a thing til 19th century then try to pin it on Darwin
    - later said women during renaissance used arsenic and ..... for hair removal.
    I just hope the former wasn't an attempt to simplify a complex, multi factored issue in order to subtlety push the narrative that this just came about because of the theory of one man. And it did this while failing to note that Darwin's evolutionary theories are so widely accepted and revolutionized our understanding of biology and history. There's clearly a lot more history and complexity to the issue of female hair removal. Ladylike pls do better.

      Cali fornia what does mechanical engineering have to do with biology? I’m in school for nursing and body hair does not cause odor. It’s a result of moisture and bacteria. By your logic, women who shave don’t need antiperspirant or deodorant because they can’t produce body odor without hair. Sounds like you need to go back to biology class.

    • Cali fornia

      Nicole M I have a degree in mechanical engineering. What I meant is that if she doesn’t bother shaving her legs, then she doesn’t shave her armpits and vagina. N those do smell!

    Main reason women stop shaving: they prefer being single forever. Or they're taking the man role in a lesbian fling.

    • lovetolovefairytales
      lovetolovefairytales پیش 2 روز

      Or maybe they are literally allergic to shaving cream and had to stop for medical reasons? Or they share a bathroom with a large family and while they have time to clean themselves they don't have time to sit in a tub scrapping hair off their thighs while somebody demands a turn in the loo? Or maybe they develop red bumps when they shave and are worried about scratches/infections? There are tons of reasons a woman might choose not to shave her leg hair. That doesn't mean she's dirty or trying to make a feminist statement or a lesbian or that she's not girly or doesn't want a boyfriend.

    I stopped shaving my legs YEARS ago when I realized that having leg hair did not irritate me - and it's nearly invisible, so that doesn't really count for much. And this winter, my armpit hair FINALLY got passed the itchy stage, so that nonsense can stop, too. I LOVE "playing" with beauty routines and appearances, so long as it's optional. Optional make up. Optional fashion. Optional shaving. It's only when it's "required" in society (via stigma) that it's a problem, really.

    I have really fine hair and if I don't shave I find that I get a lot of ingrown hair and that's just a not picnic I want to attend. And I definitely don't go without shaving under my arms because the deodorant does not stick anymore which in the summer is like, "nope, not gonna do it." I've even shaved my arms, yes my forearms. I just really like the smoothness. I don't have dark hair (a darker shade of strawberry blonde) but I just like the smoothness....and not having ingrown hairs.. or deodorant clumpies.

    In the nicest way possible, this video is pointless. If you want to shave your legs, cool. If you don't want to shave your legs, cool. It doesn't make much difference to any of us.
    I shave my legs and armpits, I feel more comfortable that way.
    If you don't have the confidence to show your leg hair, I hope this video gives you the confidence you need.
    Other than that, again, this video is pointless.

    who spends a bunch of money to shave their legs tho. you can either use a razor and some conditioner, or just make your own wax or by some from the cvs. it isn't that deep, and it especially isnt that deep for someone that first off, doesnt even have any dark arm hair, or dark body hair in general. i really hate having hair on my body, so i jist get rid of it when i want to. or im too cold to shave.

    I was pressured by an adult to shave... It was awkward... I'll usually only shave half way, and often only when I swim. I find the feeling of hair in the water or blowing in the wind really weird like being tickled, and I don't like it. Every other time of the year I don't care, except that ingrown hairs can be a pain.
