I keep saying I'm done writing or reading or thinking about the politics of body hair. I don't think the conversation should be retired — it still has merit in a feminist academic sense, and it certainly takes a financial and emotional toll on a lot of women (a burden that is not equally applied to men). But I just don't find much newness in the stalemates that go around and around—biological instinct vs. cultural conditioning, female agency vs. internalized sexism—in the bottomless echo chambers of the internet. It's just kind of like GUHHHHHH at this point.
The bottom line is that women can do whatever they want with their body hair, but should not be made to feel like they must do anything with their body hair. (The other bottom line is this Toast article, which is everything.) The end.
