Memoirs of a (Sorta) Ex-Shaver . . . via Simcoe.

“What body hair needs is more visibility. It needs a publicity agent and a marketing campaign. It needs models and actresses to flounce around with hairy legs and pits. When those trailblazing, unshaven singers and songwriters like Ani DiFranco and Dar Williams stomp onto stage, it sends a loud and clear holler into the hairless vacuum. It propels us to see it, to think about it, to actually make the connection that this is a real woman, not the reverse. It cracks open a door that will eventually lead to women having the choice (not the compulsory burden) of whether they want to shave. Maybe someday I’ll become a poster child for body hair.”
