Old feminism: Hairy legs. New feminism: Hairy legs.

August 10, 2014

Trigger warning on these photos:

Women across the world are joining a movement across social media – saying goodbye to their razors and letting their hair grow free. Members of this movement have taken to posting pictures of their legs in all their natural glory, from fine white-haired legs to a thick forest of growth. One member from the online community, The Hairy Legs Club, states that, “It’s such a shame we live in a world where legs or bodies in general should have to be a source of embarrassment or controversy.”

My thoughts: shave if you want to, but only if it’s truly YOU that wants to. Society has enough crazy beauty standards; body hair just shouldn’t be that big of a deal.

Society is so crazy!
