I didn’t see this one coming, the revival of the hairy legs, the unshaved. Not in a million years though I’m going to join this (feministic) movement. Should I call it feministic? Anyways pictures of hairy (revisited) stilts popped up in the media, especially on Tumblr girls are showing off their newfound way of expressing girlpower.
There is even a special page called ‘Hairy Legs Club‘. Most of the girls don’t want to be told anymore to shave their legs. Or feel the obligation to do it because of the public pressure they are experiencing.
A little history lesson in a few sentences learns that the second feministic period took place during the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Among female rights the women also expressed their unhappiness by refusing to put on make-up, shave their armpits or legs and to grow their hair long. This movement feels like a third feministic period has begun.
How do you feel about all of this? Would you go unshaved for the rest of your life? In my opinion I’m shaving my legs in the first and foremost place for myself. The hairs are itchy and the stubbles are hard. Thereby, shaved legs look more toned, more tanned and just make me feel more sexy. Come on, freshly shaved legs feel so good when you rubb them against eachother, don’t they?
