Women Online Are Posting Photos Of Their Armpits To Normalize Body Hair

Hello, and welcome to an article about armpit hair.

Just so we're clear, you're here to read about armpit hair. You clicked it, so you know what you're in for. We're talking about armpit hair in a positive way, okay? Because there's a new, awesome trend happening on Instagram, and we have to talk about how great it is. Let's go.

(NO COMPLAINING, PEOPLE.)

So, here's the thing:

Getting rid of our body hair is weird. Yes, I said it. And I meant it. We're supposed to have body hair! Our armpits and legs and bikini areas are meant to have hair on them. We don't grow it for nothin'.

Model Emily Bador has no problem posing with her armpit hair.

And nothing looks out of place at all! She's a model who isn't afraid to show off her hair, or even her tummy rolls. We have no choice but to stan.

The next generation of women don't have to be policed the way the rest of us have been.

"Baby girls don't ever let anyone ever make you feel bad for being who you are or doing what you want to do. You are deserving of self-respect and love no matter the decisions you make with your body."

We have to let ourselves be as we are.

More and more people, from Instagram influencers to us regular folk, are embracing the idea of letting our hair be as it was meant to be. It doesn't hurt anyone!

Loving ourselves is already so hard.

"Some days, I'm on top of the world and I can look in the mirror and say, "Wow, I love & appreciate you." Others, it's hard to believe I deserve the air I breathe."

It's all about learning to love yourself as you are.

"If you celebrate your differentness, the world will, too. It believes exactly what you tell it—through the words you use to describe yourself, the actions you take to care for yourself, and the choices you make to express yourself."

Influencers are done hiding what we all have.

Like non-binary social justice educator Ryse, who frequently posts photos of themselves with arm and leg hair! They are a must follow for social issues, especially for discussions on being black and queer in today's world.

There's really no problem with having armpit hair.

Men have it and it's totally normal, so why can't women and non-binary people? What's the issue? It's just hair, after all. Literally all of us have it.

Happiness isn't exactly found in shaving, you know?

There's a lot of things to find happiness in, and shaving doesn't have to be one of them. Many people have found happiness in letting their bodies do what they want to do!

That razor is so getting ditched.

Now, no one is saying that you have to ditch your razor — you can do whatever you want! But it's nice to have the option to not, you know?

We can have it all.

"I kinda feel sorry for these ppl who are bothered and spread negativity to others who are just being themselves/standing up for themselves. There isn’t just one beauty standard and you are so much more then your body!"
