Too poor to shave

“Recently named FHM’s hottest woman in the world, Megan Fox has revealed things weren’t always so rosy for her.

In fact, the star says she used to be so poor she didn’t have enough money to shave her legs.”

The Age

Odd that some would consider a woman not shaving her legs to be newsworthy, even odder that it than becomes fodder for an op-ed piece. I’m so over society feeling compelled to comment on what women do with their bodies.



  1. Wow…I’ve never seen the ‘trash talk’ section of The Age before but I’m now more than a little concerned for what I thought was a decent paper. The article certainly is absurd (‘Some sticky tape will do’? Ok, you go first.) The comments are even scarier.

    Wake me when we get to stop talking about what female celebrities look like.

    I’m seconding that. I’m just so friggin’ sick of getting stared at just because I make the “radical” choice not to shave my armpits or legs.
