It’s time, once again, for I’m Right, You’re Wrong! Yay!
First, I’d like to give a shout out for my friend Kevin, who recently did his own version of this and very rudely improved on it. Check out his post, Me Writer, You Wronger.
Second, this installment of I’m Right, You’re Wrong, is a little sensitive.
So for the first time ever, I’m offering anonymity. I bet you can’t see through it.
Disagreement: Should women in cold climates shave their legs/under their arms in the winter?
Disagreers: Anonomarinka and Western Society
Position One: It’s cold. My skin is dry. I wear tights and pants and long sleeves. No one can see my underarm and leg hair. Let me be. Please, dear Lord, let me be.
Position Two, paraphrased: HAVING UNDERARM HAIR IS DISGUSTING! HAVING HAIR ON YOUR LEGS IS MASCULINE! If your only standard for whether you groom yourself or not is if other people see it, it’s safe to assume that you shit in the kitchen sink when no one’s around. YOUR POOR HUSBAND! YOU’RE PROBABLY A LESBIAN! And not a lipstick lesbian, either.
Do you shave in the winter months?
And do you judge women who don’t?
