Well, then some of your people (thankfully not all - some of the best users on Skadi are Americans) have seriously messed-up views of "normality" when they consider forcefully circumcised men as the appropriate norm and European women with almost unremarkable light and natural body hair as "condemnable". I guess you can thank your media and the ruling caste for such almost perverse brainwashing and reeducation of the masses.

That“s such a superficial stance, I can“t find any more words. So all emotional compatibility, all beauty and all positive character traits are void if there are some tiny hair where nature wants them to be on human bodies?

<- He did succeed if you think like that about European women.

I have to go with Sefo and Heidi on this one. I find women with no hair (in certain parts) more attractive and I can't really do much about this - it's just a visual thing I realise that character, emotional compatibilty and suchlike are important factors too but, all things being equal, I'd much prefer a woman who shaves to one who doesn't.

This is perhaps widening the issue slightly but I don't even like a lot of body hair on males and seem to have developed some on my torso recently that I could well do without I suppose you either like the stuff or you don't but I do think it's more acceptable for men.

Well that had absolutely nothing to do with what I said, but ok. Sure.

So you’re saying that if a woman like, say, Kirsten Dunst didn’t shave it would be a deal breaker for you? If so, I’d have to call into question your heterosexual credentials. In any case, if a woman is physically attractive, she’s going to be physically attractive whether she shaves or not, MTV beauty standards be damned.
Your questioning my sexuality because i'm not attracted to hairy women? lol OK whatever buddy. I guess most straight men in America must really be gay. Its all a conspiracy.

Wulfaz is noble of speech.Wulfaz is noble of speech.

I think we have a new term:

the Pilophobia (latin Pilus, Pili means hair) what is a new, modern mental disorder when the people hate own body/facial hair by the brainwasher media and the fashion-chemical industry. If the media spread that the eyebrows are disguisting, you would shave your eyebrow? Or? Why do not shave your heads? Buy wig what is easy-car and anti-bacterial! Buy different wig for every day of a week that your wig pass your shoes! Consume! Consume! Consume!

However you feel about it, I'm just saying, it is what it is.

Well to be Realistic, in the past the outfits and clothing worn by women were not quite as revealing as they are today.

And there in I think lies the problem, in the modern world a woman in shorts or a mini is going to look a bit odd, if she does not shave her legs.

I think it all boils down to the outfit and what would be appropriate.

I was referring more along the lines of the 1700- 1900. Also that was more of a ceremonial outfit I think.

I think we're getting things slightly out of proportion here, Wulfaz

I have a preference for shaven parts of the body and think females with no/little body hair look better than the hairier ladies.

I'm sorry, but this does not make me a 'media victim'. There are dozens of things the media promotes that I totally disregard, so when I just happen to fall in line (of my own volition!) with something they're plugging that doesn't necessarily mean I've been 'brainwashed'. After all, there are only TWO options to chose from in this instance - you shave or you don't!

I've also stated that, personally, I'd rather not have a hairy chest but that doesn't mean I hate my own body - another overreaction! I would simply prefer it hairless (as it once was) if I had the choice but this is no big deal; I'm merely being honest and can assure you there's no mental disorder involved

I think we have to keep things in perspective and not assume that those who shave their legs will also remove their eyebrows if ordered to do so. I could use a similar logic and claim that women who let hair grow on their legs have a secret desire to grow beards as well but I don't go in for such amateur psychology, which invariable leads to stupid conclusions!

Why can we not just accept that people have different tastes and leave it at that, rather than suspecting a fiendish plot led by the fashion-chemical industry? Whilst I don't doubt that they're after a fast buck (like all industries!) this is definitely a demand-led phenomenon rather than an attempt to impose a new fashion on the public.

Well there is certainly more to it then that. Even if she is covered head to toe in a ski suit every day of the week.... when its time to get down to bumpin ugly's...... the ski suit is coming off and if she's got as much hair on her as I do then Its going to be a big problem. No getting around that.

Well, I think shaving hair or even cutting hair is pretty useless i mean it grows back all the time! Why waste time dealing with it? I used to shave my pits, legs, and pubic hair all the time and i tried just growing everything out and i liked it! It just feels more natural to me and not fake. Right now, i do shave my pits, legs, and pubic hair just because i feel like it at this point, but eventually i am going to grow everything out again.
