Hairy Girls & Hairy Boys


I am a hairy girl. I used to think it was a bad thing, but now I don't mind it as much. I still tweeze, wax and pluck areas of my body that I would rather not have hair on/in/near, but in places that I'm okay with it, my hair flies in the breeze or gets caught in the trees. Like I don't mind the hair on the low of my back, or the hair on my arms. I don't really like the patches of hair on the back of a man. I don't mind hair, but too much back hair can be a turn off. And I don't like too much hair on the face, unless it's a facial adornment like beard or goatee and it looks good. I don't like hair that can't be shaved on the face. Still I have it. Dark hair and lots of it.

I like what a boy in my life once said about me and my hair. He said that he liked it because it indicated that I have a high level of testosterone, which, to him meant good things. And to me too. I don't want to be all estrogen. I'd have less internal conflicts.

Perhaps I ponder my hair more often than others do. While some people worry about losing theirs, I stare at the hair on the sides of my face and wonder why I have to have the beginnings of a beard.

I dont think enough people ponder the question of the attractiveness of hair. Is it sexy or disgusting? Or does it even matter?
