Like wax on a hot plate, the cultural discussion about -- and policing of -- women's body hair is heating up.
This clip from BuzzFeed Video adds to the conversation, as a group of women discuss why and for whom they really shave their legs. And it's not what you'd expect.
The video also provides some historical context that puts the current debate about women's body hair into some serious perspective. While we're not thrilled by the expectation of smooth gams, at least we don't have to resort the "volcanic glass" method employed by our Greek and Roman foresisters. Ouch.
Discuss, ladies. And by all means, shave (or don't shave) however you'd like.
