Though women’s liberation movement started around the 1960s in Europe, we still need to put in a lot of effort to reach the real gender equality. And ladies, being creative creatures, can find many ways to attract the attention to their problems. One of those ways is the new trend of hairy women, and Morgan is one of these brave ladies.
Fitness blogger Morgan Mikenas probably saves a fortune in razors. She also apparently has a lot more free time than many of us. Why? Because to promote natural beauty, the fitness model and blogger has gone an entire year without shaving her body, and here are the results of her au naturel hair trend experiment.
“I’m not trying to make all of humanity stop shaving their hairy armpits and leg hair anymore,” said Morgan in a clip she posted to YouTube recently. “I just want to inspire others [to do] what works for you, what makes you feel the most comfortable.” Citing time as the number one reason behind her decision to stop shaving body hair, she was also inspired to let it grow out after being bullied in gym class when she was 11 or 12 for having hairy legs. She decided to embrace her natural beauty instead of subscribing to what society expects of her, and she says that her boyfriend likes it and thinks that she looks beautiful either way. “I want everybody not to feel ashamed of themselves,” she said. “I think it’s unfair that people think they have to be in this cultural norm. Just do whatever makes you feel good.” It might not be for everybody, but kudos to Morgan for standing up for what she believes in. Check out the full video on YouTube, which has already been viewed over 200k times.
