It is NATURAL for a man to have facial hair.
Due to polycystic ovary syndrome, it's natural for me as a 20 year old female to have quite a bit of facial hair. Should I not remove it? After all, it's natural so I must be disrespecting my body, right?

There's nothing wrong if you chose to keep it.

Facial hair is a choice. You can shave your body hair if you like, but you also have no reason to do if you don't feel like it.

My family and I are Christians and we participate in our ministry regularly. I do not think tattoos are wrong. My husband had some on his upper body and I have one on my hip. We do keep them covered however because we don't want to offend or stumble anyone who may think they automatically represent a rebellious lifestyle.

So though I do feel tattoos are a personal choice, I do feel that flaunting them opens you up to negative criticisms and puts you at risk of possibly offending someone.

If my son came forward wanting to get a tattoo, I'd probably discourage it because of the constant self awareness that is required in order to not place yourself in an unseemly light..keeping them hidden when the situation calls for it, for instance. But if he insisted, I'd offer to go along with him and hope he picks a good artist.

So nothing that your body doesn't already come with. Do you cut your hair? Clip your fingernails? I realize this is an extreme, but if the logic is your body is already perfect, modification through getting rid of excess hair and nails is not necessary as well, correct?

What about clothes? You didn't have those when you were born

I think you're just being obnoxious for the sake of being obnoxious.

Hey, he asked!

And since I don't have any AC, and I live in Florida, I prefer to wear as little as possible around the house. The body isn't anything to be ashamed of.

hey...to each his own. If you don't believe in clothes, that's your choice. I might think otherwise if I was your coworker or something.

I have a feeling it might be awkward for the neighbors when you mow the lawn, but I don't live in Florida, so I don't know how things work down there.


All I wanted you to do is think of the logical end to the line of thought "I don't like tattoos because they are not natural". That is all...
