In theory, the decision to shave your legs or remove any kind of body hair is completely personal. But in reality, there's a multi-billionaire dollar beauty industry that has flooded us with images and expectations of what women "should" look like, and shaving your legs is just the tip of the body image iceberg.

While men face their own pressures when it comes to body image and cultural expectations, even the most empathetic male partner won't fully know what it feels like to be a woman navigating beauty standards. This gap in emotional experiences can make for some tense exchanges when issues of body hair removal or other expected feminine grooming comes up.

To this very point, in a recent post on the Am I The A*shole subreddit, a guy asked if he was wrong for joking about his girlfriend's leg hair after she said she wanted to remove it.

AITA for “shaming” my girlfriend into shaving her legs?

Throwaway cause my girl uses Reddit and browses this sub somewhat often.
