When it gets a bit chilly outside we all love a bit of extra fuzz to keep the cold at bay. Or for that matter, growing a fresh crop in summer because it’s 2017 - you can do whatever you damn well like. But what’s the big deal with hair anyway?
Our winter #AWFGAL model Cat Kasey wants to share her thoughts on the matter. Find out what happened when she uploaded a photo of her wonderful underarm garden online.
“I work as a model and actor and I generally have to keep quite hairless, so whenever I get downtime I enjoy letting my body do its thing and relax.
“Recently I put up an Instagram post of me lying in bed and you could see my underarm hair... which for some guys was too much to handle! Out of nowhere, I was receiving comments from these guys (who themselves are very hairy) telling me how disgusting I am for not shaving my armpits.
I spent my evening calling them out and getting them to apologise: satisfying as fuck."
“Afterwards the support I received was overwhelming and kind of empowering, but it felt overshadowed by the fact that girls are still raised to believe that their body hair is unnatural - something to feel ashamed about and hide - when in fact it is one of the most natural and beautiful things your body can do.”
