New York Times tackles Shaving vs. Not Shaving

Even though I am a woman who shaves I think it's about time that an article like this be produced. So at first I wanted to applaud The New York Times and Catherine Saint Louis for publishing and writing an article about women who choose not to shave (and in the Fashion & Style section nonetheless)...showing (through pop culture icons of course but some "real" women) that shaving or not shaving is a choice. 

 That it doesn't have to be a "statement" for all woman-kind...

Then they lost me with the line:

"Is the fear that no man will want you and your hairy legs valid"... 

*Gag* oh heteronormativity.... 

Oh well it's not the best article but at least it exists.
