It's natural to sweat, belch and fart, too, but that doesn't mean it smells or looks good.

Yes, I realize it's a cultural thing, but I prefer to not look like I've got someone in a headlock under my arm.

No argument about grooming from me, but I'm pointing out the double standard for men & women. Why is is "gross" for women to have armpit hair, but not men? Those other things you mention are seen as unappealing for both genders & are much more closely linked to hygiene than sheer aesthetics. Visually, most people take no issue when a man has armpit hair (more common than not).

I think it depends on how much pigment you have in the skin. I used to not shave when I was younger, and I also didn't care if I saw someone's pit hair. It's weird to see someone say it's "gross." Hair is natural.

For some reason, now I think it looks unsightly. I wax instead of shaving. I also wax my face and shave my legs, and I think 'OMG' when I see women with mustaches or leg hair.

I have a friend who refuses to shave her armpits. She still has lots of boyfriends who I guess like the "hippie" look. I waxed her pits once, and she liked the way it looked, but won't let me do it again.

Well. I think underarm hair on a woman is gross. Just my humble opinion.

No philosophical opinion about the aesthetics of underarm hair. I don't think it's gross, but I do think it's uncomfortable and itchy. Thus, I shave.

There are all these bad effects that women's body hair causes, that never seem to occur with men. Funny how that happens. (As Orangeapple said).

As a personal preferance, women with hairy armpits and legs don't stand a chance with me.
