(Newser) – It’s time to draw a Maginot Line around bikini lines and end the war on pubic hair, writes Emily Gibson in the Guardian. Whether driven by fashion, smooth-skinned celebrities, or an errant view of hygiene, it’s a trend that leaves people susceptible to infections and suffering from chaffed and itchy skin. Whatever the reason for the fight against pubes, “it is a sadly misconceived war,” Gibson writes.
For one thing, the irritation associated with frequent hair removal makes your nether regions more at risk of staph and other infections. There’s even evidence that shaving puts people at more risk for sexually transmitted diseases, such as herpes. Pubic hair also protects the body from friction that can hurt the skin and is a natural part of growing up—”certainly nothing to be ashamed of or embarrassed about,” she writes.

Hey Emily Gibson, why don’t you shut the fuck up. Shaving my pussy hurts, it makes me susceptible to herpes and chaffing, wah wah wah. You know what it also does Em? It makes you gross. Like are we really talking about friction? Friction? What is this 8th grade science class? Fuck That.
And I’m not even trying to be an insensitive tough guy here. I’m just telling the god honest truth from every guy’s perspective. You come at a man with overgrown pubic hair and they will think that is disgusting every day of the week and twice on Sunday. Just because Emily Gibson has given up on life doesn’t mean everyone else should. This is the classic ugly girl telling her friends they shouldn’t hook up with the guy at the bar for no reason other than the fact that she herself can’t get laid. Don’t start telling people that they shouldn’t be embarrassed by overgrown pubic hair. Yes they should. This isn’t 1950. Should we stop using cell phones and computers and driving in cars because people get in accidents? Same thing. Progress is progress for a reason Emily. If you want to act like a cavewoman and not trim your vagina then be my guest but everyone will think you’re gross as fuck, except for your 8 cats, because lets face it, you are CLEARLY the cat lady that is never getting married.
