Why do women to shave their underarms when men don’t?

(Hope this doesn’t sound as dumb to you as it did when I wrote it but I had to think of something to ask soo….) I asked my cousin this and first thing she said was, “It’s NOT Lady Like!!” So I asked her, “Why can men get away with not shaving?” She replied, “I guess it’s just manlier.” I think it almost shocked her that I even asked. I know in some countries its normal for women to not shave. Does anyone know where the practice of women shaving under their arms came from or when it started? I do shave under my arms but I wonder by men don’t. Wouldn’t it be easier to put on deodorant? What do you think? Should men start shaving under their arms like women do?

I've always wondered that too. The hair under arm hair of a man is far thicker and far bushier than that of a woman. I've seen some men with hair under their arms that was long enough to braid. What's the worst is when they have deodarant particles or clumps of deodarant in their under arm hair. It would be interesting to know why that has become a norm or a standard. Maybe it's to match the hair on their chests. I wonder if a woman didn't shave for a long time would her underarm hair be as bushy and long as a man's

I don't think anyone should shave their underarms but that's just me. Women shaving their underarms started sometime when beauty became only on the outside as the media shows today. I will go a week or two weeks not shaving if I feel like it and my man doesn't complain. As for guys that do shave their underarms...I think they need to focus less on their looks and girls and more on work.

It quirks me to see a woman with a bushy arm,it looks irksome if there is such a word. I think it develope from run way models who have to lift their arm. And I am sure no one would want to see the wilderness under her arm its only natural that the woman should shave her arm thats a more man thing.

I think men can keep their underarm hair trimmed but shaving seems a bit too unmanly.

I think anyone with pit hair should shave it off: man, woman, or freaky monkey child.

Men are supposed to be hairier in our culture. It's just the way it is haha. But I do know quite a few guys that shave everywhere.....but they are all gay, except for two.

In tropical countries (where I come from), women have no choice but to shave otherwise they will sweat as hell. And sweat means moisture where bacteria thrive causing infection that may cause pimples. Bacteria also cause our numero uno pet peeve (or at least my pet peeve): body odor. Besides hygiene, it does look better having hairless underarms, especially when you wear sleeveless and tube tops. So, my opinion is really you shave because of hygiene and aesthetics. I personally don't shave, I WAX. It makes it more smoother, makes the pores smaller, and minimizes hair in-growth, which can be a pain removing.

When I was a teenager shaving underarms didn't bother me, now I hate to have hairy underarms, even in winter. I don't think it looks very nice. I don't like it on men either, so yes I think men should have to shave.
