Gender roles are strict that if you don't follow them, suddenly you lose your gender completely. Why can't a girl be hairy, or drive bikes, sit however they want to, dress however they want to, eat however they want to. Why does doing these things make them uncvilised or magically a guy? Why is beauty ruling over everything? Are beauty norms okay to exist?
These notion of perfectly fitting into your gender role, even though it's not necessary, is certainly a very patriarchial and forceful concept.
Girls who don't shave are still girls.
Here are some celebrities, who don't shave their legs and aren't afraid to show it. Girls, especially in winters, the routine is plain tough, you don't have to please everyone.
She gracefully wore a dress involving a lot of legs, even when her legs still had hair. Take some inspirations, girls.
She is that one person who challenges beauty standards and norms. She stood strong for the cause even after facing some media backlash for her legs.
She was spotted roaming around with hairy legs a lot of times, and she doesn't really care about it.
This Big Bang Theory star is a total feminist at heart. "If we never told girls to shave, would they? If we modeled a cultural acceptance of our body hair, would they spontaneously feel the need to remove it weekly, monthly, or daily? If we all wore bathing suits that covered our natural forms instead of the form that only hairless young girls who have not birthed babies can wear, would our girls and boys have a more or less realistic notion of what the human body 'should' look like?" This is what she posted when asked about her shaving habits.
She believes that the hair on her body is so fair, she doesn't need to shave her legs.
She took a bold move and showed up at a Los Angeles store opening with unshaven legs.
While at a concert, this singer gracefully carried herself around with hairy legs. Even after receiving a lot of media criticism, she kept her head high.
