but it's just not natural. It's too, corporate America. I wan't to douse the fact that people think that if you /don't/ shave your legs, it's not natural. Seeing as women have been on the earth for centuries upon centuries and shaving only came up around the 1920's.... I mean, it just seems so un natural to me. To quote an article I read...
"There comes a time when social conformity begins to gnaw on you. Ideas and actions are not right merely because everyone else does them; they have just never been questioned."
what do you mean, "natural"? body hair is an evolutionary remnant from the days when humans needed the hair to keep warm and protect their skin. now we have clothing and warm houses, so we no longer need body hair, and any that we have (or don't have) is purely for aesthetic reasons anyway (except for the hair on our heads, which still serves to retain heat in the winter).
no technology is "natural"--from fire to eyeglasses to computers, it's all simply an extension of our own cababilities, which is neither inherently good nor bad. or you could say that it is ALL natural, since it is all a part of our evolutionary development as a human race.
how can you say that shaving your legs is too corporate america, and then spend all your time on the internet, which is far more a part of corporate america? you wear clothing, you drive cars, you listen to mp3s, you fly in airplanes, you own a cell phone, you watch tv... but shaving your legs is not natural? why stop there? why not stop cutting your hair and fingernails? why not run around naked and live in the bush?
anyway, i'm just pointing out that *non*conformity can be just as mindless and pointless as conformity, but you have to think everything through carefully and find the best balance. remember that ideas and actions are not necessarily *wrong* just because everyone else does them, either.
