The first time I shaved my arms I was As someone with naturally dark hair and pale Irish skin, it made sense my arms would be white and hairy, but after months of bullying I decided to do something about it. Today, 15 years later, I still shave them every single day. I know how they feel. I love this! As non-american, i thought american women didn't have arm hair and only us Mediterranean folk were cursed with them cause I never saw any arm hair in magazines or movies. I was bullied so much for having hairy arms in middle school, I started shaving them.

My forearms are a little on the hairy side. They've been that way for as long as I can remember. Being a dark-haired girl, the hairs on my arm are particularly visible against the backdrop of my pinkish-white Irish skin. Growing up I envied the smooth, tan arms of my peers whose skin was just dark enough to disguise bumps and blemishes and whose hair magically lightened in the sun every summer. Although I was deeply self-conscious about it when I was young, I managed to convince myself at an early age that my dark fuzz wasn't that noticeable, and somehow sustained that belief for several years.

My arms and legs, however, were covered in soft, dark hair. My mother suffered the same fate as me, so it ran in the family. In my mind, having hairy arms made me less pretty, less female, and the fact that it was mainly boys who made fun of me only confirmed my suspicions. That was kind of the point. A February article in The Atlantic delves further into the topic , but the point is, by the beginning of the 20th century, American women were trying all kinds of horrific methods to rid themselves of their body hair. I tried all of them.

That was the first time that I, at 17 years old, had ever brushed off a remark about my hair. Like many Jews, I have a complicated relationship with my thick, unruly hair. My arms were always easy targets for ridicule.

If you've never given much thought to your arm hair, it may be hard to imagine what it's like to be unhappy with your own day in and day out, but that's precisely the self-consciousness experienced by countless women moving from childhood into adolescence. One such person is Nicole, who recalls, "My arm hair was pointed out to me ever since I can remember. The average human body boasts some 5 million hair follicles , and generations of beauty standards across many cultures have dictated that on femme-presenting bodies, some of this hair is acceptable and some of it is not. Body hair has been censured and policed, giving rise to hair-removal rituals requiring immense time and resources: shaving, waxing, laser hair removal, electrolysis, and more. As the body-positivity movement has gathered momentum in recent years, though, body hair , especially on legs and armpits, has begun to enter the mainstream, with celebrities and Instagram influencers applauded for flaunting theirs.
