Millenia of male supremacy and over a hundred years of women needing to be hairless to be 'beautiful' or whatever bullshit the shaving companies came up with means a lot of men aren't prepared to handle the fact that women are, in fact, human.

All of the above can last a good week, easy.


Yeah that’s how my wife is, doesn’t bother me.

Ridiculous and sad. If a girl doesn't want to shave go right ahead. I've known a couple girls who stopped shaving thier pits, never made me look at them any differently. I'd probably do the same if I was a girl, seems like such a hassle to keep up with. ( Semi related, as a dude I shaved my pits a couple times completely, was actually kinda nice, but I can't imagine having to do it on a regular basis. )

I actually like when guys keep armpit hair trimmed (doesn't have to be totally shaved). It keeps down smell and looks better imo. But it's their choice, not mine.

I'm far too lazy to shave my leg hair all the time, it's light and fine so that helps but outside of a special occasion I just shave once every couple weeks.

As to the model, just more of the disgusting forced beauty standards... What kind of pathetic excuse for a man do you have to be to makes rape threats over a woman having some leg hair?

Because this is a thread about someone who was threatened with being raped because of her legs not being shaved.
Why come into a thread like this and essentially endorse the guys' point of view, just noting that the rape part is wrong? Like, this isn't the place for it.

That's ridiculous. That's like finding someone overweight unattractive. As long as you're not shaming, then there's nothing wrong with that opinion.

It's not. I think expecting it to be the norm is or having separate standards of beauty depending on gender is. Body/facial hair's a choice for anybody who grows it, some people like it and some don't.

I don't think there's a reason to vilify people who don't like body/facial hair. The issues with suggesting that somebody else shouldn't be free to grow it due to other peoples personal opinions.

I'm still waiting for the part where you show me where I said women need to shave their legs.

Do I find hairy legs attractive? No. Would I tell someone they need to get rid of that hair? No.

I never even said anything about refusing to date someone that doesn't shave. I can find a feature of somebody unattractive and still find the person attractive.

Not me. I would not date (or at least, not take a date seriously) someone that didn't shave their legs / armpits. It's a deal breaker for me - even if it was just to have a one night stand.

Having said that, it's disgusting that anyone would shame or threaten someone for going against the grain with how society decides how someone is "supposed" to look like.

There was zero offense intended. Just an off-the-cuff remark saying how ridiculous it is that threats would be thrown out for such a nothing reason. "As much as the next guy" is just a common idiom. It doesn't mean that I literally think all guys find hairy legs unattractive.

I always find models that have imperfections (at least by standard society standards) to be interesting. I was playing Yakuza 0 which has the videos of actual models, and one of the things I thought was neat was how their teeth was actually somewhat yellowish when I'm used to movie stars having perfect whites.

Yeah I feel like I have been conditioned to find hair on women, well frankly, gross.

But really the more I have thought about it, the more I realize that it's the shaving that is unnatural. If I were a woman I'd probably go without shaving my legs frequently, that sounds like quite the hassle.

I agree, but it's definitely not just men. They're almost certainly doing the rape threats. But beauty standards and products are strongly marketed by females for females as well. Good luck getting rid of this one IMO, I think it's far too ingrained and a lot of big businesses have products built around it etc.

Lol, I thought the same exact thing, I wasn't even looking at her legs. Like a short fitted rose/pink turtleneck, with a white victorian corset/dress? People can wear whatever they want, but

.

So many conflicting elements.

I mean, I'm not going to comment on the first part, but the second part is demonstrably untrue. Cosmetic modification of ones body, including hair removal extends far back through the Renaissance to the Ancient Roman era. It is far from simply a side effect of Western narcissism and popular media.
