I am totally for all the girls that threw away their razors when they realised that being attractive, particularly by traditional standards, is not the most important thing in the world. Or that being 'hairy' and being 'attractive' are not mutually exclusive.
Sometimes I don't shave my legs. Actually, I often don't shave my legs. This isn't to make any kind of statement, I just don't really feel like it most of the time.
My relationship would count as 'long distance' to an extent and I will go weeks at a time without seeing my boyfriend. Then, when I know I'm going to see him, I shave my legs because he prefers it (and I prefer the way it feels too, if I'm honest). He doesn't shave his head because he knows I prefer it. Neither of us is going to break up with the other one if we suddenly change our habits but it's a case of consensual 'give and take'.
If he really wants to shave his head then he does, regardless of how I feel about it.
If I really don't want to shave my legs then I don't, regardless of how he feels about it.
But as a general rule, I don't like underarm hair or pubic hair. On anyone, male or female. I don't even like chest hair. I find it gross: the look, the feel, everything. Obviously I don't ask my boyfriend to shave his body hair and I wouldn't be so shallow as to devalue a person because they chose not to shave - my personal preference is just that I don't like it.
I also find it really fucking insulting that if I say any of this in front of people that regard themselves as feminists, I'm accused of being anti-feminist and a victim of what culture has forced upon me. I must have been brainwashed by the media or some shit.
No. Get over yourselves. Misplaced self-righteousness is no more redeeming a quality than submission to male-imposed beauty standards. I know full well that I'm intelligent (and I won't downplay that for the sake of modesty, why should I ?), I'm independent, I'm strong minded and I know what I fucking like. It's not internalised misogyny (though I'm not saying that this isn't an issue elsewhere).
Equality is about an individual's freedom of choice, not resisting one sociological groups rules so that you can abide by another.
