    So I don't.... it's needless.

    Getting accidental cuts hurt, shaving cream is outrageously expensive, and razors aren't so low priced either. If people don't like my hairy legs they can look away. It's that simple.

    Just Don't Do It!

    I don't shave anything!  I seem to have no trouble in the arena of dating and I honestly find shave armpits creepy!  Love the hair you got ladies!

    Conditioner Use your hair conditioner to shave

    your legs. It's cheaper than shaving cream and leaves your legs really smooth. It's also a great way to use up the conditioner you bought but didn't like when you tried it in your hair.

    I Mean, Not Really But Sometimes

    I stopped shaving my legs the first time when I was at a Rainbow Gathering last year in Florida. In our camp, there was this beautiful being called Monica, and hers were only the second pair of unshaved legs I had seen and I just could not get over how gorgeous that was, and how...

    I actually watched the entire length of a

    shaving commercial, and it's safe to say I'm not happy with it. It said these women were rocking some other aspect of their lives, but their stubbly legs ruined it. Really??? Chill out. Shaving should be done if you WANT to, not if someone SHAMES you into removing the (perfectly...

    I only shave when I remember

    or for special occasions. I only regularly shave my armpits. It's a hassle. My boyfriend doesn't care. I don't care.

    I've grown to shaving my legs using a bowl of

    Why shave? Hair is hair

    and eventually it's going to grow back. Starting from the hour after you shave. I don't shave anymore. I wore a dress last month, I didn't hear anyone complaining, well I guess it's because my legs weren't so hair. Shaving... Uh... That thing that I stop doing on my legs. Yah! I...

    More like the fact that I have to shave them

    often. It suuucks... Shaving legs is just a pain in life and a waste of time. But on the other hand, nothing is more wonderful than smooth new shaved legs 😍

    Such a hassle...and especially in the summer

    when you wear swimsuits and shorts, you have to do it so often! Who started the rule that girls have to shave their legs?!....I mean I think it'd be gross if we started letting it grow out but why don't guys shave theirs?

    In winter, I'm wearing jeans,

    fleece lines leggings, or fluffy pajama pants to keep warm. If I don't shave my legs, who's gonna know unless they pull up the leg and look? If your feel comfortable not shaving, go for it! But if you have a partner, they should agree to support you. Half the time my legs aren...

    I know I have to, too many judgemental people

    if I didn't. It's not like I go swimming anymore with school or wear skirts but... I don't know, if I didn't shave and one of my trouser legs slipped up everyone would judge me. Also now I've started it tends to itch and become irritated if I leave it too long

    Don't act like you don't feel me ladies.

    I'm not afraid to admit I hate shaving my legs because it's a pain in the ***. It sucks having to shave every couple of days or every other day. Now I know why men grow beards!! In the winter my husband is lucky if I shave my legs once a month bwaahaaha!

    Shaving my legs is the most difficult thing

    for me to do ever! This morning I tried to shave them and most of the air won't get off!!! Often times I bleed from it too, shaving my arms are way easier.

    What's the point of shaving?

    in a couple of days/weeks, all that hair will start growing back. Shaving using a razor makes your hairs thicker and darker, waxing is so painful, let alone it wastes a lot of time. If shaving was to last something like at least 3 or 4 months, I wouldn't mind doing it. But...

    I hate the idea of society telling me what to do with my body on a large scale, but this one is the most annoying.  Sure, it may look and feel good for a day or two but when the stubble comes in it's worse than long hair. I only ever get the hair off when something special...

    My Husband Couldn't Stop Laughing!

    I hate shaving my legs.  Once I got past the age of 12, when I begged my mom to let me, I then discovered that it was a ridiculous ritual.  Sociology then taught me all about social constructs, but even that knowledge hasn't allowed me to stay "au naturelle"...

    Why do people expect me to shave my legs

    when it's winter and I wear nothing but pants? I have lots of stuff that I would rather be doing besides unneccesary body hair removal.

    I just do it if I need it.

    .. Sometimes I think we should not do it just because society demand us to... I mean we're free to do whatever we want... As long as you feel fine with it... For me it's just on summer and if I need to wear a skirt or dress haha I think that the reason why I like winter :p
