Women are taught from a young age to shave everything from our ankles to our armpits. But why? What is this strange obsession with women being hairless? It's pretty creepy that other people feel the need to police our body hair when you think about it. Why does anyone care how long our armpit hair is when they can't even see it most of the time and it's not on their own body? What makes it so offensive? It's just another way to tell women how their bodies should be and maintain control, a low-key way to oppress women in today's society. Shaving should be a personal choice and not the choice of a patriarchal culture. That's why some women are saying "Hell no!" and putting down the razor, and even those who aren't are saying "Hell yes!" and supporting them. This is why armpit hair is trending, and it's a step forward for women's empowerment.
