    I guess there's hope ...

    ... for us neandertals who haven't given in to the metrosexual revolution.

    Breda talks about chest hair.

    I'm a pretty hairy dude. Not like a mat of fur or anything, but a largely Scots-Irish heritage has definitely not left me hairless. I guess I'm lucky enough to be in the middle, with light-coloured reddish-blonde hair that doesn't make me look like a chimp, but not looking like a pre-pubescent boy either.

    I've always been a little squicked by dudes who shave themselves all over. The guy I shared a suite with while I was in school in Misissippi, while otherwise a good guy, would spend frikken' hours with the bathroom door locked while engaging in his all-over manscaping. Annoying, and kinda gross. As far as I've always heard, this practice gained its initial popularity in gay bath houses, and spread to the body building set so that the oiled-up dudes could would show their muscles to better effect. Such Man Pageantry seems a little weird and emasculating to me. Not in the sense of being castrated/threatened, just not appealing. It also smacks of trying to make us sorry simply for being males.

    Edit:

    It's also natural for females to have some body hair. Hair removal is a fashion, not a necessity. Women in our grandparents' youth did not depilate themselves all over. Maybe it's my upbringing mostly amongst the hippy chicks of the Pacific NW, but I basically just don't care if a girl doesn't feel like conforming to that particular 'beauty' standard.

    I ***hate*** the sort of hair removal that's become trendy among many women. And no, I'm not talking about armpit or leg shaving. Adult women should look like adult women, not like prepubescent little girls.

    I went to Taiwan about two years ago. Apparently chest hair is rare among Chinese men, because a girl I was talking to caught sight of a bit of hair sticking out of the top of my shirt, yelled "Monkey!!" and demanded that I take off my shirt and show her the rest.

    Interestingly, although she swore that both of her parents were Chinese, she looked exactly like a white girl who had dyed her hair black.

    Peter:
    Prepubescent girls don't generally have armpit or (dark) leg hair, either. These are signs of adulthood. So why do you want women to remove them?

    When I was in Korea, that was a pretty common reaction to my chest hair from a lot of girls. Of course, random people were always asking if they could touh the hair on my head, too; just because they had never seen anything like it before. Always with greatly embarrased shyness, but it was fascinating to them.
