Inspiration: body hair

Think about these words for a moment: female body hair.

They are just three little words but boy can they cause a debate! We shave for different reasons and likewise we don’t shave for different reasons; all that matters is that it’s YOUR CHOICE. Don’t feel pressured into shaving anything just because society deems it as ‘the thing to do’ and it’s something all you’re friends/enemies/people at school/so called ‘celebrities’ are doing. Peer pressure blows: DON’T GIVE INTO IT!

If you’re not comfortable or happy with it then simply don’t do it. Do what you feel happy with- if you want to shave, that’s fine! If you shave every other week, that’s great! If you don’t shave at all, HUZZAH! I 100% support your decision.

This here is a great tumblr to take a gander at if you feel at all confused, conflicted or dead sure about female body hair: Hairy Pits Club. It’s full of beautiful girls of all shapes and sizes proudly showing off their armpit hair.
