The Hairy Question

why is society obsessed with hair growth (or the lack of it)?

there are countless products in the market for hair removal -- razors, waxes,creams, epilators, electrolysis & laser treatments, so on.

Why do women have to pluck their brows, shave their pits,their legs & endure bikini waxes? the great lengths they go to just for aesthetics. why are the things mentioned above considered as part of 'good grooming'? And why can't men do the same? I once saw a jerry yan poster showing his shaven armpits. why did i think he looked so 'gay' in it? (probably because he is,but that's beside the point)

An interesting development in aesthetic hair removal in men recently is the 'back, sacks & cracks wax'. Basically, it's the 'brazilian' for men. They end up totally hairless around the balls. (That's gotta hurt?) Well, it's proved popular to male strippers.

i thought men are getting it easy because they don't have to contend much with bodily hair removal except for the usual morning shave.. but then they are extremely more prone to receding hairlines -- which shows that life is fair sometimes. While women spend most of their lives getting rid of hair from their bodies (auxilliary or pubic, take your pick), men spend time putting them back on. ironic, isn't it?
