[quote=“BlueHeron, post:8, topic:557”]Late coming to this thread…
I shave my pits because if I didn’t, I’d worry about whether they smelled, and-- if they did-- whether they smelled really bad. I don’t shave my legs, except on occasions when I feel it’s a good idea. To pull an example from recent memory, I shaved to attend a friend’s wedding in a dress. I didn’t want to draw too much attention to myself. (It was their day, after all.)
I pluck my brows, in a very minimalist sort of way (meaning that I pluck very few hairs), usually about once a week.
Also, w/r/t “How much do you alter your body’s natural state?” - one could say that keeping one’s hair combed instead of having hair in its “natural state” (aka dreads) is an alteration. I have hair that I comb, it is a little longer than chin length, but for the past couple of weeks I’ve been seriously considering growing it and starting some dreads.[/quote]
I do not shave anything. My pits, legs, groin, etc, are all hairy… in an unruly sort of way. I have taken to trimming a bit, but for the most part things are as they are.
