I believe in razor freedom for all!
Story time! When I was around 12, some chick in my dance class brought it to my attention that it was time to start shaving my legs.
I broke the news to my mother, who mourned the loss of her precious little girl, then gave me the green light…
…under one condition.
I could NEVER, under ANY circumstance, shave my thighs.
If I did, she said, the hair would grow back 10 times coarser and darker. Essentially, I’d look like a wildebeest.
She had 37 years of wisdom on me, so who was I not to believe her? I obeyed her command.
Except for that one time before summer camp. And before a first date. And a few times before the swimming unit in gym class.
To my surprise, it grew back normally! Recently I decided to explore how many other innocent children were lied to. According to Twitter…quite a few!
Have you fallen victim to this epidemic? Or are you one of the moms responsible for it? If so, what’s your reasoning for telling your child this? Did your mom tell you the same?
I clearly have a lot of questions, so please, sound off in the comments below with some answers!
