Woman Doesn't Shave Armpits And The Internet Goes Mad For Some Reason

Woman Doesn't Shave Armpits And The Internet Goes Mad For Some Reason

For some reason, people are kicking off regarding a woman's shaving habits.

Comedian and activist Kate Smurthwaite appeared on ITV's This Morning. She was hoping to encourage women to accept their natural bodies.

However, once she showed her armpits on TV, all hell broke loose.

Apparently, women having body hair is 'disgusting'. Wow. These people would hate to see my legs over winter.

Kate said: "It's not manicured, I don't do anything.

"I don't want women to feel like there's something wrong with their natural body."

Fellow guest, Lizzie Cundy, a former WAG, said: "I'm sorry it actually makes me feel quite queasy and ill. I do think it's unattractive and I think most men and women don't like underarm hair.

"It's like Flintstones-ages, we've come a long way since then."

A lot of people took to Twitter to share their views...

Some people said it was 'unhygienic'. Why aren't blokes all doing it then?

I couldn't give two shits whether someone shaves their armpits or not. It's pretty weird that so many people were branding her as 'disgusting' for not picking up a razor.

I think maybe these people need a history lesson. Did you know that many women didn't shave their armpits until 1915? It all comes down to an advert that came out in Harper's Bazaar. Basically, the advert told women that modern dancing and sleeveless dresses were the next big thing. So they better get rid of their armpit hair. Yes, it all comes down to marketing.

They told women it was embarrassing, and therefore it became the norm to shave them.

Personally, I prefer to shave. But is it really anyone else's business if women do or not? Who cares?
