Swedish Feminists Bare Pits to 'Reclaim the Hair'

Quote:
Some forty Swedish women gathered at a Malmö square in the afternoon on Thursday, taking a stand against the recent internet storm vilifying women's hairy armpits.

“We want to take a stand for all those that are insulted. It is about gender roles and letting everyone be themselves,” said Anni Isis, one of the armpit baring protesters, to the local Sydsvenskan paper.

The demonstration was organized by the Malmö Feminist Network (Malmös Feministiska Nätverk), which decided to “Reclaim the Hair” after Sweden’s online community had been whipped into a frenzy due to one woman’s hairy armpit being exposed during a live television broadcast of the Melodifestivalen song contest finals on Saturday.

Lena Ehrin from Ludvika in central Sweden was cheering the Swedish Eurovision candidate Loreen when her clearly visible underarm hair appeared momentarily on live TV and in the living rooms of an estimated 4.1 million Swedish television viewers.

A Facebook user then managed to take a screenshot of Ehrin’s hair, which he posted online – an image which then spread like wildfire across the site.

Within hours, thousands of people had “liked” the image, and hundreds had shared the image on their own Facebook pages, with an overwhelming number of crass and bullying comments attached.

“It is proof that many live in a narrow-minded and normative world. We have to challenge these structures,” said Isis to the paper.

These people never cease to bedazzle me. 'Everyone should be free to express themselves freely', but as soon as someone utters negative remarks towards their views or behavior, 'they need to be set straight'. Society is in no way less narrow-minded today than it was in previous decades (or centuries, for that matter). The social stigmas has merely shifted positions.

Nice to see these women have found a great cause worth dedicating their time to.

They are passionate about armpit hair, yet if someone were to ask them whether or not they care that their people and culture are hurtling towards extinction, they would probably call that person a hate-filled nazi.

Feminism is not about "equality". Feminism is a cultural-marxist ideology that are supposed to make men hating women och women hating men.

Feminism is also anti-white and anti-germanic. I recently read some statistics where the five nordic countries qualified as the worlds five most equal countries, followed by other white and european countries. These countries is also the countries where all the men-hating feminists are found. Why does the worlds most equal races and nations produce the most extremist feminists?

Because "equality" is a lie. Men and women have their traditional roles in society, and neither of those roles is "superior" to the other in the larger sense. Make women "equal" and you diminish the male role in society, therefore "equality" is, in fact, tyranny.

Feminism was purposely done to two ends: to reduce our birth rates and to feminize male culture as a whole. The Jewish cultural marxists sold this idea to the other elites as a way to prevent further European wars, by making men more passive. I think their real motivation is, to say the least, quite suspect.

Well, I beg to differ, I“m pretty sure that not every woman who engages in such demos is automatically a liberal feminist. I guess there are also some women who just would like to see a more normal, down-to-earth and natural display of womanhood and female look in the media and in the perception of the mainstream, and I“m one of them. The way it is these days, women are left with no options other than to shave or even wax their body hair if they don“t want to be seen as "strange", "ugly", "gross" or "backward". This comes from the modern misconception that only hairless skin is feminine and adorable while in reality, body hair is as natural to women as it is to men.

So, to put it in a nutshell, if that demo was held to support the political agenda of leftist feminism and gender mainstreaming then I don“t support it. But if the demo was held for the purpose of freedom of choice (similar to affirming sites like happilyhairy.com who try to empower women to be more natural despite modern ideals) and that women who don“t shave their hair aren“t to be seen as "outrageous" then I“m fully in line with the demonstrators. I think that the advocated image of how we women should look like to be considered as "beautiful" by the modern mass are ill and unnatural. Please also note my points made in the Body Hair-thread opened by Todesengel some time ago.

You're right of course but in this case it was the feminists who initiated and organised the protest and as you may be aware, there is a certain stereotype associated with them which, to put it mildly, isn't very flattering.

It would have been better if this event hadn't already been associated with this particular group.

Wasn“t the original reason for the demo that a female singer who didn“t shave her armpit hair performed a song in a TV show and was ridiculed afterwards on the Internet for her "insolence" to not adapt to the modern beauty ideal? The article suggests that. Such a reason would make sense to me but again, I don“t know which powers were involved over there in Sweden.

Well, I have to say that if these feminists were wasting their time protesting something which, to me, seems silly, then the people trolling that poor woman for having underarm hair are far worse for caring about such a thing in the first place. The idea that this is somehow nasty is a direct result of decades-old propaganda instigated specifically to sell more razor blades. Ironically, this too was supposed to "free" women because they could wear risque fashions without displaying "unsightly" hair.
