My college choir is performing this weekend. Before dress rehearsal today we were joking about making guys wear dresses (you know, just being silly college kids who are trying to find some humor as the stress of finals approach), and someone asked if they should also have to shave their legs.
I don't even remember how the topic switched over to women shaving their legs. But, sure enough, one of my classmates commented "Hairy legs are gross on women."
I have hairy legs. It's not because I'm trying to make a statement, and in truth I do think they look nicer when they're shaved. But some time ago I got sick and tired of shaving them, and that was that. I expect I'll start shaving them again someday, but not anytime in the near future.
So when this classmate said that hairy legs are gross on women, I jut had to say "Hey, I don't shave. Are my legs gross?" I wanted to see if she'd say it to my face. And, sure enough, she did. (Though I noticed that she didn't look at me as she said it.) She added that "hairy legs aren't so bad if you aren't wearing a skirt."
Maybe I'll wear a skirt next week. What do you think?
