Controversial? - 1 by Sprauncy Controversial? - 1 by Sprauncy
I want to know whether people think that exposing armpit and arm hair is acceptable in a lady or not, and their reasons.

Please comment! :)

We were made this way so wants the point in wasting your life shaving it off or covering it up?

Preferred, actually. (Shaved body parts are a bit creepy to me).

I think you have lovely armpits, so thanks for turning up and sharing. And by and large the comments here are supportive which is encouraging. I like hair on a woman, always have. Mostly though in society today it seems that people don't. Okay, whatever floats your boat - but I have issues with people who think its "gross" or "disgusting" To you I would say think about the language you are using and stop being so judgemental. I think that intolerance is gross and disgusting.

It's acceptable as far as I'm concerned. What really matters, though, is if you accept it. Lovely picture, by the way.

Acceptable? Of course. Shaving is only a few decades old and things can change once again.

of course it's acceptable. it's your armpit.

I'm a guy and I shave everywhere.

Personally, I think people should keep their hair the way they feel attractive; whether that be hairy or shaved. I suffer from pretty major hirsutism and mostly because of all the taunting and teasing I've had growing up, I try to remove every single bit of body and facial hair that I can. It just makes me feel more acceptable to society and able to pass through crowds without being stared at like I'm some kind of freak. Deep down, I know I don't mind having all this hair. I think it makes me interesting and I actually like the feeling of it but I remove it all just to become acceptable to everyone else.

May and Sprauncy, both of you are gifted to be beautifully hairy, it makes you very special individuals, and body hair growth makes you more of a woman, not any less, and in addition, body hair has multiple health and sexuality benefits, armpit hair holds pheromones that helps individualize us, it's a proven friction barrier, it helps in sweat removal, acting as a "natural radiator", so allowing armpit hair to fully function is much better than removing it, and the double whammy of removing armpit hair, irritating the armpit skin in the process, and then application of poisonous aluminum salts antiperspirants, can actually trigger cancer! So I can't overemphasize letting nature's wonderful gift, armpit hair, do its wonderful thing, thanks for reading this, and I hope this gives you support for the natural cause of being naturally beautiful♡♡♡ Joe

I agree with you completely. I'm sorry to hear that you got teased growing up, kids can be so judgemental. :hug: I too suffer from hirsutism, and used to be extremely self-conscious of my arms (this picture doesn't really do them justice!). I used to shave or bleach the hairs, but I hated the stubbly feeling, and it felt wrong because nobody else I knew had to do it.
I've come to accept that this is the way I am, and have realised that since I don't have a problem with the hair, then it shouldn't matter to other people, and if it does then I don't need to bother with them. I don't have to change myself to please others - it's just a bit of body hair that I can't control! It has taken a while, but I've become more confident and feel sort of liberated now. :)

underarms are beautiful and sexy, and girlfur is too. Confidence and happiness are the sexiest characteristics of anyone, so if you are happy with who you are never let anyone tell you it's wrong

Personally, I find it uncomfortable to have underarm hair. I shaved it as early as I could because it irritated me. That, and I'm hairy enough without more hair. I don't like having body hair, so if I can control whether I have it or not, I do. I don't shave my arms though, because that just seems silly.

I think a little hair on a lady's alright, but a lot of hair repulses me. It's not the same as the hair on your arms or on your head, and it gets smelly and sweaty a lot easier.

In my opinion armpit hair on a girl is hot.

And I think it’s great when a person decides to be himself/herself and try something new as opposed to trying to do what society considers completely normal. Most women shave their armpits, but if you don’t want to shave your pits, you don’t have to. It really should be a matter of whether or not you want to shave-after all, it’s YOUR body.

I personally couldn't go out on the street with armpit hair showing but, I'm perfectly ok with arm hair.
If other people want to go out with armpit hair showing, then so be it. It's not our body soe really shouldn't judge. :shrug:

Hell, I find it unacceptable when a man does it haha. There seems to be some sort of general consensus among men that the less hair on a woman the better, which seems almost paedophilic in a way. I suppose I really don't care, at least not all that much. All I know is that shaving any other part of my body besides the face is a real pain in the ass, so I feel if a woman doesn't want to go through that she shouldn't have to. Though I am but one man in a sea of opposite thinkers.

In my opinion a lady should be free of hair for the reason of having a cleaner hygiene than men. But I do recall seeing ladies with hairy armpits, to each it's own I guess.

i was born in Germany and bought up in England, so when I was going through High School they all made out that I didn't shave my under arms and it really frustrated me.

Life, sure but even so...

I used to feel that way until I was about ten... saw a woman with a ton of hair in a tank top.

Standard stuff popped into my head, "Ew, gross! Nasty!" Then something clicked; "Wait a minute, you're getting disgusted by hair?" I said to myself. Then I thought about it; smooth, soft, etc. Nothing at all wrong with it! And all this about it being unclean is B.S.; guys have it and we're not dirty so what's the big deal?

I had been under the influence of society and snapped out. But I find the fact that it's so looked down on sort of exciting. ;)

Well, I think armpits don't have to be like supersmooth but as much hair as on the picture is just simply unattractive. Or well, that is my opinion, maybe there are people who think it looks wonderful. XD
