The blog encourages women to submit photos of their unshaven legs and posts positive comments about them. He was more supportive of the idea than I was at the time. He told me I should be able to wear what I want without having to remove my leg hair, but I was still afraid of how others might see me. My own family wants to help me remove my hair and my sibling looks repulsed at me should I briefly not cover my hair.

Got fuzz? 'Hairy Legs Club' goes viral as women shun shaving
This is the time of year when razor blades go into overdrive, with many women getting rid of all evidence of body hair as they don shorts and swimsuits for the summer season. So it might surprise you that one of the buzziest blogs right now features women showing off their unshaved limbs. Please note some images on the site are not safe for work.

These Women Stopped Shaving Their Legs And Joined The Hairy Legs Club
A personal choice. That's the best way to describe this, or anybody's decision, to either shave or not shave various parts of the body. Men are unlikely to face too much scrutiny over it, for women it's a different story. Last week on This Morning, comedian Kate Smurthwaite appeared to encourage women to accept their natural bodies.
These women say why they are part of the Hairy Legs Club. I don't hate the hair, I hate the way that society makes me feel it's wrong. I hate the way people look at it as if it's disgusting. I hate the negative perception.
