The way you phrased it read more-so as simply saying "hi" to or encountering a woman. Meeting =/= Dating.

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

Preach. I haven't been married nearly as long but some hairy legs ain't stopping me from having fun w/ mrs mammoth.

Nothing wrong with guy's not liking women with hairy armpits or legs.. just like nothing wrong with women who don't like men who don't shave their beards/stache off.

It's typically not front and center though... my wife doesn't shave shit unless she's having it seen.. so skirt/shorts/tank.. etc...

The lighting of that shot makes the legs look even hairier than they actually are too.

I would have thought men vocalizing they don't care about leg hair would be at least a bit helpful in countering the idea that women have to shave their legs. Or maybe not everyone with an opinion shut up I guess.

You probably should take it up in another thread.
One where the topic of discussion isn't men sending rape-threats to a woman because she didn't shave her legs.

Eh? I'm just answering a post that has been made in this thread?

If you are implying that the topic of this thread justifies typing something like that here, let me make this point:
If there was a thread about a woman raping/rape-threatening a man, and someone in that thread posted 'most women are shitlords', it would still result in an instant ban. So that doesn't really prove a point either.

No, I'm stating that a thread where a woman is receiving rape threats is not the thread to discuss "Well, why can't we say most women are [whatever]?"
The fact that you were answering a question someone else asked doesn't change that.

Rape isn't about sexual pleasure. It's an act of violence and control.

But that's not what i said, you are putting words in my mouth i didn't say

It's not 'why can't we say that', it's 'why can anybody say that'. I agree that nobody should say 'most women are shitlords' because it is a generalisation and also insulting. But the same should go for men too you know?

I'm not taking any sides. I'm just saying A insulting B is not allowed. Of course, that's how it should be. But B shouldn't be allowed to insult A either. Because.. Equality and stuff.

Those people who type those kind of threats deserve all kind of insults but you still shouldn't blame 'most men' or whatever for that because that's a blatant generalisation

I don't know why you guys are trying to defend stuff like that. But well, as i do not want to derail this thread any further as you said we should just stop here.

I think the problem is that when the thread becomes about men giving their approval or disapproval for leg hair, it makes it all about them.

By saying you think women need male support to counter the idea that they have to shave their legs, the implication becomes that they don't have the authority to make that decision themselves. It makes it seem like their own opinions don't matter because the defining factor in whether they have to or not is whether they have male approval.

The internet (like society in general) has a much bigger problem with men harassing and threatening women than it does with women doing the same to men. That is the reason for the double standard. This and just about any other web site is not at risk for becoming a hostile and unwelcoming place for men*, and a post saying men are shitlords does very, very little to move the needle.

If you think this is a great injustice, then I think you are far too focused on the abstract principle than on the actual effects on people's and communities' wellbeing. Same logic as when men complain about being excluded from, say, women's professional development groups. It's not that they actually are harmed by the exclusion or even want to attend, but gosh darnit they're just so opposed to discrimination! In reality, nine times out of ten they are angry at the idea of something being not for them. Don't be like those people.

*With the possible exception with sites that are explicitly about feminism and gender issues.

My man! Unfortunately a lot of women think guys with no pit hair look creepy, so I don't shave mine to the skin. It's short enough that it doesn't easily trap BO. I'm thinking about getting my junk lasered, and I'll probably do it at some point, along with what little grows on my back. Too many women dislike guys without some body hair for me to completely get rid of it everywhere else. As long as it's not long enough to gross me out, I'm happy to cater to the tastes of prospective partners. After all, I care much more about making my skin somewhere they want to be than I do keeping it to my preferred aesthetic standard. I keep most of it just long enough not to be scratchy, which seems to work for everyone.

I think it's fair to say that online rape threats are literally always horrible. What's wrong with these people? I've never read a news story or any statement or encountered any controversy where my reaction has been

"I'm going to send a threatening message to this person I don't know."

What the fuck has to be going through your mind to get to that point? It's completely absurd, barbaric, and disturbing. Some people are such trash.

Women have hair. It's normal. Not having hair is abnormal. I shave because it's just a habit but I don't care if people don't. I have blonde hair so it's not that noticeable anyway.

How did the laser treatments go? Were they effective? Did they at least make you psychologically more secure about your body?

Did they have any physical, long term negative effect on your skin?

I always fantasizes about zapping my back hair with laser throughout my 20's. Leaned to care less in my 30's.

I don't shave my underarms and I am beautiful. Sometimes I even leave the house with stubbly legs. Shaving fucking hurts and I have to do it every other day to keep up, and it takes me 10-20 minutes in the shower. I always get ingrowns, and I always have spots that bleed.

I've also dyed my underarm hair. I rock this shit, and I'm not going to let assholes who can't step out their own comfort zone for one second control my life anymore. Petty, pathetic men can continue to live in their ignorance and hatred, and I will continue to pity them for that ignorance.

And I will continue to date a man that values my mind and my heart, and remember that that's what matters. It hurts, but assholes will always exist, and I will always be stronger than them and do what I want.

But of course. One of these things is secondary, and that's the threats for not conforming to society.
