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

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

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.

Many other countries the women don't shave their underarms or legs.

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.

I suppose it began because the odor was difficult to control. But then I find it odd that a country like France does not have women shave but they are supposed to be all about fashion. Some men do shave for weightlifting or some shave for their spouses.

Women should be soft and clean in our soociety. Hair I guess doesnt make you look clean. there are many cultures that do not want women to shave anything at all.

I don't shave my underarms either and I am a woman. I also don't grow much hair there.
