But seriously, he's not saying one shouldn't participate, he's just saying (and I agree) that if that pic could cause issues with your boss should he/she see it on your screen, then you shouldn't be browsing neogaf at work in first place because there's absolutely nothing about that particular pic that makes it any less safe for work than..anything, really. Any anime pic, any videogame screenshot, any picture really is as safe as the one in the OP.
If your boss or whoever has a problem with it, then they have a problem with you browsing internet at work, which btw is totally understandable.

I can understand that. I've probably argued that point in my past. But it's lazy. The OP was considerate and, except for one poster, you could look at the photo in another place (ie home or cell) and still come in here to discuss without worrying about your boss.

But like i said, being considerate can be hard at times.

I'm not a mod. I don't make the rules. But i can still comment on things. With a hope that tomorrow will be better in here than today.

Been married for 17 years. I only shave my legs if I'm going to be wearing a skirt or shorts or dress. Husband still fucks me on the regular and has no complaints about my disgusting hairy legs.

This in my experience is how most long term relationships work.

So get over it. Shaving is a chore most of us don't do on the regular. Sorry

Yep. And once winter hits and its pants only I have no reason to shave. I only shave when my legs are on display for the public, at home everyone else doesnít give a fuck.

Its so messed up that not publicly conforming to beauty standards can cause an actual threat to a womenís safety. All of the guys in here whining about how icky you think it is should consider what it would be like if you might get harassed, raped, or killed because you didnít feel like shaving your stubble one morning.

We only care because we were trained to care. By the time women largely stop doing it, boys and men will be used to it and old farts like me will just be yelling at clouds.

Tbh I still canít tolerate long black socks with basketball shorts or flat brimmed caps.

Body hair can look different depending on angles and lighting, I'm a natural brunette and my body hair usually appears brown from afar and at certain angles/lighting but in fact about 90% of it is actually blonde.

But is it wrong if affects my attraction in the girls with noticeable hair on their legs? Like the way a lot of girls would not be as attracted to some men with Facial hair, chest hair and back hair on men ?

....or am I still displaying ignorance?

I don't think you're in the wrong for letting it affect your attraction to some random person on the street you might not ever see again, but it crosses into weird/fucked up territory if you (the colloquial you) need to let that person or other people know how gross you think it is.

also if it's a person you are/would be dating long term, you'd just have to accept the fact that we literally all grow hair.

Your lady is not usually going to let it get in the 1 centimeter category though, and that's because even though it's certainly sexist, hairiness usually gives off a masculine vibe. Maybe this is because men are by and large more hairy than women. We seem to, as we've evolved, exaggerate certain traits about our genders to increase the potency or distinctness of the gender. Body hair became one of those things a long time ago. I think it's pretty cool to break these archetypes though, as they are superficial in the end.

I keep all my body hair trimmed or shaven. My junk is always tongue-bathingly-smooth, and I'm ready to shoot porn at a moment's notice should the need arise. I'd happily shave/wax/laser off more body hair, but I'd never grow it out; no matter how much society tried to shame me into compliance.

So you do you, hirsute homies. Fuck the misogynistic internet bullies.

Why would you threaten to rape a woman because of something you don't find sexually attractive/arousing on her body?

I mean, threatening rape makes it seem like her hairy legs are a pretty big dealbreaker. How do you even get it up at that point?

Because it's about bringing violence against a woman in the worst way possible, not about having sex.

Honestly, I think it looks cool. She's beautiful, love her hair (on her head) in particular.

Even more honestly, it doesn't matter what I think. It wouldn't matter if I thought leg hair on women is the most hideous thing ever, because she should be respected regardless and should do whatever she wants. Don't know how else to put it, it's such a painfully simple sentiment, yet it's practically impossible for huge swaths of people to not be scum.

Oh totally, and women shouldn't feel the need to display their femininity in that way if they don't want to. Not everyone has to play that game, and while all choices have consequences, they shouldn't include anyone being disrespectful. Live and let live.

I agree completely. What's crazy is how utterly strange that photo seems to me, because I'm completely not used to seeing such hairy legs on a lady! If my wife has even a millimetre of stubble on her legs she panics, such is society.

But then it's only recently become acceptable for men to have facial hair for professional purposes. In my last job I had to be clean shaven, such was the policy for customer-facing employees. And that was pretty common until the last few years when beards suddenly came back in to fashion with the hipster movement.

As for the rape threats, little disgusts me more in this day and age. Cowardly, pathetic, insecure individuals hiding behind internet anonymity typing the most abhorrent words imaginable, as if they don't deeply affect both the person they're aimed at, and also other survivors.

Some GAFers in this thread should be deeply ashamed of themselves too, very worrying.

Because it's not about sexual attraction.

It's about showing women their place for not abiding the social norms you champion. You know, the ones where women are the fairer sex and so on. One of the social norms in place is that women should shave their legs to look pretty and stuff. Here's a woman who doesn't, clearly scandalous, so for the sake of everything righteous she has to be punished so she'll learn to never do that again. Therefore rape threats!

This is how some people view the world, really.

As a woman who decided to shave last night for the first time in 8 months, I did it because I just got a new mattress and sheets and wanted to feel the silky smoothness against my legs. I gotta say, it was amazing.

I don't shave for anyone's appeal but my own, it's too much work to expect me to shave every week because "it's gross" somehow. These men sending threats are deranged.

I've definitely been made to feel self conscious about the hair on my arms before (and seen really mean comments directed towards pictures of women where you can tell they have arm hair), but yeah overall I'd say the legs (and armpits) get the most concern. I dunno, maybe arms are predisposed to being less hairy, usually?

I don't see why I'm part of any problem lol, Women can do what they want, I'm not saying that all women need to shave or not, it's their body, I'm just saying that an unshaved women has 0 chance with me, it's fine, they're millions of people that are probably fine with it.

I don't want to have sex or date a woman if she is not shaved either. It is their choice and that is perfectly fine just like choosing not to date a girl if she is unshaved is also fine. What is not fine is sending her death threats or bullying over it.
