To keep up with the unrealistic idea of smooth legs 24/7 you'd have to shave almost everyday. It's a pain in the ass to do.

You should shave your legs and see what women go through. It's a pain in the ass to do and it's time consuming

22: So as soon as a woman enters a relationship she is required to meet the standards of "beauty"? When will men and women realize that you don't fall in love with a puppet, but the quirks and the imperfections of a person.

22: Women don't exist to please men, ya know. It's only leg hair. Everyone has it. We are expected to shave our legs, armpits, & bikini area. I'd take the small surface area of a face/neck over that, especially since it's socially acceptable to have scruff or a beard.

22, are you seriously making that comparison? last time I checked, guys aren't frowned upon if they sport a beare/mustache

Honestly, it takes me at least 20 minutes to shave my beard. That's using trimmers and an electric razor, so I can imagine what a pain in the ass it is to shave your legs. There's absolutely nothing wrong with a girl having a bit of stubble on her legs, it doesn't make them any less attractive. Sure, guys do love the feel of a super smooth leg but I don't think it's really that important. Like someone else stated, in winter you girls don't keep up with shaving them quite as much. I know during w

Like every other woman has said, it is a pain in the ass and time consuming to keep your legs shaved along with our armpits and bikini area, plucking our eyebrows, dealing with razor burn if you happen to shave too much and not to mention when you accidentally cut too deep. And I know I'm not the only woman that doesn't have my legs constantly shaved during the winter. Too much hassle just to have them covered by jeans/sweatpants all the time.

I don't shave them until spring time and I have scars from where I cut to deep while shaving. I usually cut my ankle and heel

lol skitsmuffin is so immature. It's just hair seriously. If you are really making a big deal about that, you don't deserve a girl.

It is quite a lot of effort. Plus you'd end up spending quite a bit of money on razors and shaving cream if you were to have completely hairless legs all the time.

Shaving is very time consuming. Takes me at least 30 min to shave my beard, I couldn't imagine having to constantly shave more than just my face. Seems like the guys who can't grow facial hair so it takes them 5 minutes to shave can't comprehend how tedious shaving actually is.

Why do girls HAVE to shave and guys don't? It's hair. It's natural. I would like to point out that it does take more than 5 minutes to shave your legs. It takes roughly 15-20 to get them absolutely hairless. Even after that time period, I still have a little bit of missed hairs that I have to go back and get. Armpits you can do whenever you take a shower, if you have time, so that's not that big of a hassle. Sometimes you can do your bikini area as well. My boyfriend and I live together, so he

I personally like it when some guys have scruff. Not all women hate facial hair. Men don't have to shave... They choose to unless its for a job or something. And if its a job then it's their choice to have that job.

21: if you shaved every day, you'd start thinning down your skin badly. I've shaved twice in a row and it cut me in so many places because even if you have the thickest shaving cream it still cuts off a bit of skin.

152, what can't you fucking comprehend about the concept that women shaving their legs takes longer than two minutes? Imbecile

Reply

Fine if you don't wanna shave... But don't expect me to think you're attractive & don't be surprised if I mistake you for Bigfoot...

#165 uuhm 152 is a girl, but i dont believe that she takes two minutes to shave. even i cant shave my face in 5 minutes. i like a girl with smooth legs but if she doesnt want to shave than i dont care about it

How the fuck did this become such a long conversation? Women don't have to shave if they don't want to just like guys don't have to shave if they don't want to. But most people think hair is unattractive/unprofessional and if that concerns you, you should shave. Simple as that, right?

Reply

I agree with #177. However, I think in a relationship, grooming preferences should have a role. If neither partner cares about the hair, then it doesn't matter. But if one does, the other should respect that. It's a compromise for the relationship. Also, it's a little weird that almost every single pro shaving comment has gotten downvoted to the point that they're hidden, but most of the anti shaving comments have a ton of upvotes.

I can't possibly see how it can take someone 20 minutes to shave their legs. It takes 5 minutes 10 max. And you only have to do it maybe twice a week. Is that really so much time that you feel the need to bitch about it? If you don't want to shave that's fine, but don't bitch about how much time it takes when in reality it isn't even 1% of your week. Nobody cares about a bit of stubble. You're just lazy, and coming up with excuses.

Gee, I guess every woman can afford $600 every few months to get laser hair removal. It's not like there are more important things they could use the money for

Also, you can't get laser hair removal if you have blonde hair or very dark skin. The laser only destroys darkly pigmented cells, so it's not effective at removing light hair. And if you use it on dark skin it will burn you really badly.

It may not be winter, but where I live it's pretty cold already, and we've already had frost. You can't just assume it isn't cold until the first day of winter.

Reply

Not to mention, some people, myself included, work most of the time and I have to wear long pants all year round and for the most part my friends work opposite schedules so all I do for the most part is work and go home. Great life right? Haha Anyways, with that being said I do not necessarily have to shave them because it's not winter yet. Who's going to see whether or not I've shaved my legs?

You do know that way back in the day women never shaved, right? Not to mention (and I've witnessed this) there are still some women that don't shave period. Just because she didn't want to shave for however long does not make it 'ew'. It just means she didn't feel like shaving.

Reply

I don't shave every day. Often, I'm more cactus-like than smooth. But my boyfriend doesn't care, and sure as hell doesn't comment about them. Girls already do so much to impress not only males but other people, such as makeup and clothing and hair, that I guess it's the end of the damn world if we don't shave for a few days.

85, and the same goes for brushing your teeth. Do you want to date someone that brushes their teeth once a week? How are you going to compare shaving to being clean?

Reply

I would also like to add that I (and probably most, if not all people) don't consider daily showers as a 'social standard'. It's more of personal hygiene.

Reply

I would just like to point out that the OP said she NEEDS to shave. Indicating that it is something that she does not feel opposed to, and more than likely has just stopped doing for some reason or another. I doubt she would have said needs if it's something she never does.
