It started innocently enough. A few hippie chicks ditched their razors and opted to go natural. I honestly have no problem with that--do whatever makes you feel good! What upsets me the most is that women having armpit hair is now a "trend". Yes, just like skinny jeans, the long bob, and countless other normal things.
The model in the picture above is actually quite pretty. That said, I just can't stop looking at her pits! To get a man's point of view, I showed the picture to my fiancé, and he immediately said, "That's gross.", with no prompting.
What's even worse (if you can believe that there is anything worse than growing out strands of armpit hair), is that people are actually dyeing their pit hair bright colors! There are even a bunch of actual tutorials on how to do it! If for some reason I went crazy and decided to stop shaving my armpits, the last thing I'd want to do is draw more attention to them by dyeing them various hues (which are readily available to those who want them).
|Don't forget to color coordinate!|
I've seen countless articles about how the armpit hair trend is "a huge step for women". I'm all for women's rights, but this is ridiculous. If you want to grow it out simply for yourself, great. If you're trying to make a fashion statement, you're an idiot.
That is all.
