One friend told me about the time girls at summer camp pressured her into it, while another spoke about how she was teased into shaving at around the same age as me.“They were all doing it and sharing tips,” she said.
Just Friday, reported that Swedish model Arvida Byström received rape threats after she appeared in the Adidas Originals campaign with unshaved legs, even though her blonde hair and petite frame otherwise match most existing beauty norms.
Byström is also an artist known for challenging preestablished perceptions of femininity, often posting photos of herself with body hair or cellulite.
“Me being such an abled, white, cis body with its only nonconforming feature being a lil leg hair,” she wrote on her Instagram.
“I can’t even begin to imagine what it’s like to not possess all these privileges and try to exist in the world.”Another confession: I haven’t always been as comfortable with body hair as I am now.
Even though my then-idol Britney Spears appeared on the red carpet with an unshaved armpit in the same year that I started, I still came of age during a time when naked photos of women showed them naked , when pink-colored razor blades were marketed to girls as a cute accessory (even if they were no different than men’s razors except in color), and when I stocked my first bathroom outside my parents’ house with shaving products as a sign of maturity and independence (never mind that I didn’t know how to wash a pan).
I would like to say that I stopped shaving once I had read enough feminist literature, and that might be partially true, but the more direct answer is that I stopped shaving because the concerns in my life grew much bigger than body hair.
“Like perfume, jewelry, lipstick, and shaving.”Of course, the underlying connection between shaving and femininity is bound to the idea that a clean-shaven woman is most attractive to the opposite sex.
A few friends have told me that, even though they don’t regularly shave, they will get the razor out for a date.
