The only times I shaved was when other people would see my leg hair. Now I will just show it off to society I guess. Gonna buy a capri jeans soon, can't wait to see te response of my sexist relatives who luckely live far away!

(Just wanted to post this out of excitement lol hope this can inspire some other women this summer!)

Yep, last summer I didn't shave my legs or armpits, just kept them trimmed. The hair tickles my skin when it's too long lol!

I always hated how it made my skin feel: dry, prickly, and it still made me self-conscious because you can never remove the little nubs.

This year, everyone else can just deal with it. I want my girls to grow up knowing that body hair is natural and nothing to be ashamed of.

Last summer I stopped shaving my legs - not having anyone seeing my bare legs at work during distance-education helped me stop caring. But I tell you, the wind through my hair and the halo of light around my hairy legs drove me crazy. I'm over it now and everyone can just fucking deal if they have a problem with it.

It seemed like a few swipes of the razor every other day wasn't that big of a deal, but day after day after day since I was 12 (!) vs. now I can see it has actually freed me up a lot of cumulative time from just one more stupid lady-chore.
