To shave or not to shave? Female armpits have become a  battleground for gender neutrality warriors and considering the hoards of radical-feminists proudly tweeting photos of themselves sporting psychedelic floccularity, you might guess they’re winning. [RELATED POST: Free Your Pits]

WRONG. Recent studies indicate 99 percent of American women still voluntarily remove hair from their legs and underarms and many of them take extreme measures to get the job done. Enter miraSmooth™.

Free the Nipple

Remember that stupid waste of time feminist movement called Free Your Pits? You know, the thing where women grow their armpit hair, dye it all sorts of neon colors and post pictures of themselves on social media sites because guys-don’t-shave-their-armpits-so-why-should-we?  [Related post Free Your Pits].

Guess what? A bunch of UC San Diego female students and alumnae decided to join the freedom crusade. They added guys-don’t-have-to-keep-their-shirts-on-in-public-so-why-should-we to the ever-growing compendium of social norms deemed aggressively propagated by the eeeeevil patriarchy to oppress women. Then they gave it a name (of course) – “body-shaming” – and promptly created a movement and organized a campus event to protest it. Hence, Free the Nipple. Watch. read more

Free Your Pits

By now you’ve probably heard about the stupid waste of time movement in which women stop shaving and dye their armpit hair all sorts of funky colors because… they’re bored? Want attention? Hate men?

It’s still kind of stupid odd if you ask me, but at least the tenets of the Free Your Pits manifesto focus on empowering women rather than degrading every man that ever lived and all those yet to be born. Admittedly, however, their use of the word manifesto, regardless of its content, is enough to give me cause for panic. Okie dokie. read more
