It's a bragging point for growing boys. After that age it's irrelevant.

@jagernutt: Did you shave it with a machete? Then it is acceptable. You can also burn it off with a torch.

It's not even unique to men.

there's no rule book on how to be a man. I'm pretty sure my armpit hair's growth has FTL feats lol

but all because somebody can't grow hair under their arms it doesn't make them less of a man than me.

that's just how I see it

...plus everybody knows it's all about the pubes

I use hair clipper's. Even with my arms down you can still see it coming out from the side's.

No, please shave. Unless you are a hairy dude that can be mistaken for a neanderthal, you do not deserve the privelege of pit hair. It just look like pubes on your pale unhealthy skin.

I read that increased testosterone levels can lead to excessive body hair growth.

So if you link masculinity to testosterone level then you can probably have a correlation with your armpit hair.

With regards to cultural norms, males in many societies are often expected to be less vain and less attentive with their looks.

Prioritizing vanity and "looks" are often considered as petty and excessive considering that males were traditionally employed in professions where they often get grimey and dirty and proper grooming is of little importance.

You can use electric hair clipper's with a #1 guard. That shouldn't irritate you.

i'm scared with electric clippers but since there's not much option left for me, it'd go with.

@kyrees:

Just put a guard on them. It's not like you need a clean underarm shave or anything.

Yes. All the most fertile woman of my village and adjacent villages consider me the most manly warrior on account of my under arm locks. As a treat for the woman who I consider the most breed worthy, I let them latch on to my prized under arm braids and I spin them around like a fidget spinner.

All the young children point and gasp in awe and the village elders clap and sing watching this display of masculinity and power, that emanates from my pits.

body hair in general is considered quite masculine. Especially chest hair

@sc: found your irl pic.

OT: yes it does, and for the love of god don’t shave it. You’ll look weird, it itches, it’s just a mess.

Trim instead with like a number 1 or 2. Same with all the pubes on your body.

Now if you’re a woman, sorry honey but you gotta shave them pits bald.

@ourmanuel: @insomnimaniac: Yeah for some reason a lot of people tell me they thought I was a female. It makes for some super awkward private messages on occasion.
