A couple of years ago, I entertained the idea of lasering all of the hair off my legs — but backed out because I had a weird feeling that hairy legs like other hairy areas would someday be the coolest thing ever. On the site, women submit and post photos of their hirsute lower limbs with positives notes as to why they chose to ditch insanely expensive razors and the gendered beauty standards they accompany. So why are these ladies insistent on not shaving their legs all of the sudden? WANG's Facebook page does explains that you should not feel forced to give yourself razor burn on a daily basis because society, or anyone for that matter, makes you feel like it's necessary:. My 22 year-old-self as well as my current self are very, very okay with this.
It is this which makes the recent popularity of the Hairy Legs Club so refreshing. At a time when women are encouraged to begin the dreaded bikini season diet, a Tumblr blog has emerged which champions natural beauty, while dispelling some of the common myths about what constitutes female beauty. The Hairy Legs club currently taking social media by storm encourages women to post in with snaps of their hairy legs along with positive comments.
