    Puberty Boy Legs

    It sux. It's a waste of time. Nicks and scrapes. Shaving cream. Stubble. Time and missing little spots. WHY ARE WE FORCED TO DO IT? And I would love to know who was the one that started this trend that NEVER DIED DAMMIT!

    I don't like to be negative about the weather, it can be enjoyable. But its summer time and the frequent frenzie to shave is afoot. I hate shaving with a passion. I am a natural hairy girl. I even have dark hair.   I had to start shaving at the age of 8. It was a miserable...

    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 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

    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...

    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"...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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?

    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.

    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

    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!

    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...
