Is the new trend for women to grow their armpit hair, attractive or not?
Armpit hair is expected for men but not women. There is a growing legion of mostly younger women letting their armpit hair blow in the wind. Is this a fad or are they making a statement?
I think 99.999% of women who have ever walked this planet had hair in their armpits, so it's not really new. When I was a teen, in California, back in the late 60's, I know lots of young women who didn't shave their bodies. Part of that whole natural, back to the land movement.
My impression is that the new movement is more about body acceptance, and I can support that. Women can do whatever they want with the hair on their bodies, but I don't like this idea that seems to have taken hold in the past few decades that hair on a woman's body is "gross."
I think it is unattractive but, I do agree with Sherry Hewins in that it sounds like it involves body acceptance.
I think it's making a statement. But they do need to trim it, if it becomes too hairy underneath, IMO.
It doesn't matter if it's attractive or not - it's a personal choice and one that nobody should be shamed for. They're not doing it be attractive and earn the male gaze or whatever....they're loving their own bodies and accepting them as they truly are.
Maybe it's a fad for me, maybe not. But I'll be honest here, I don't always bother with shaving my underarm area and my boyfriend has never once made me feel ashamed for it. Any man (or woman) who would is a piece of ****.

Does a long hair make a woman more attractive?Women with short hair are less feminine? Do they have a stronger and more masculine personality? In contrast, are women with long hair more charming and refined?
