In our time, uncertainty over What Should Be Done With Our Pubes has launched one thousand feminist think pieces (and, recently, a fleet of attention-seeking merkins to an American Apparel near you). In theory, I think the aestheticization of the hairless female body is interesting and quite telling. In practice, though, I can't think of anything less relevant to my life than what other people decide to do with their crotch hair. As a rule, I don't care. Do whatever you want — if you shave it into eyebrow shapes, I might maybe want to see that, but otherwise, nope. However, The New Republic has recently unearthed some findings about home-grooming injuries that bring a whole new element into consideration: the element of danger.
