Except that cultural norms change all the time. At one poit it was a norm for men to wear giant powdered wigs. My point is that norms change. Also, not shaving your pits is not unhygienic unless you consider all men to be unhygienic? I also wouldn't even consider it lazy, since again, men don't shave either. Are men lazy? Women didn't shave anything for thousands of years too, it's not like shaving is "normal" biologically.

Obviously Im not going to shame you for your preferences but you shouldn't shame women for something that is natural.

Why are you fighting? Someone asked a question and he answered. There is no right or wrong answer. It was a question asking for an opinion. Relax. Just because you think one thing, does not mean that anyone/everyone has to think that way. That is how children think.

Cultural norms do change, and if they do I will reivaluate, but in the current climate I follow the ones that are there. If wigs were the norm, I would wear one everyday, because it's such a small, small amount of effort to reduce the friction in my life. That's an important quality in a person; do they properly access the effort to payoff in their actions. People will look at you wierd if you don't shave, and shaving isn't hard, I do it every day. It's a very small effort that rewards you with a smoother day and better social interactions.

The kind of person who views that as a bad investment is an obvious liability. It signals how they access their world and how effectively they engage challenges and objectives.

I guess some people were just born to follow.

Well some people don't like to be followers. I mean your answer is the pretty standard one of "i'll do whatever everyone else is doing" but personally I appreciate people who go against the grain. Hell, remember not too long ago when it was the status quo to be clean shaven and tattoos would label you as some sort of criminal? Now we have the beautiful tattooed bearded guy!
