Tumblrs of Female Leg Hair are Growing

Natural female leg hair is getting attention on Tumblr and mainstream media.

Via Refinery29, we learned of Tumblr’s hairy leg movement – and the fact that mainstream media (i.e. Daily Mail) is covering said movement. Apparently Tumblrs focused solely on female leg hair, with names like The Hairy Legs Club and Very Hairy Legs, are sprouting up all over the internet. Posts range from the gleeful, “I’m so glad I don’t feel ashamed of my natural body hair anymore!” to the supportive, “When I first stopped shaving my legs it took a while for me to feel confident about it. Seeing pictures of other women doing the same helped me get used to it,” to the empowered, “I guess I post mine now because I like them …they remind me I’m not obligated to do anything I don’t want with my body.”
