Event to make our hairs stand on end
When I first heard of Januhairy, I thought: “Could there be more of a non-event?” That this should be a thing, the growing by women of their body hair during a month when we’re wrapped up to the ears in our woollies, is baffling.
This, surely, is the time when almost everyone is taking the opportunity to save a few hours of personal grooming work and letting it all grow like a nice wild lawn. Then Piers Morgan felt the need to stick his, always pertinent, oar in on the subject, and labelled those of us who are sensible enough to give up the shave through winter as “lazy and revolting”.
And it became clear to me that we need Januhairy, or at least we need to tell the truth about Januhairy – because, haven’t most of us been doing Januhairy, for a very long time?
And, great as Januhairy might be, as part of a campaign to promote body acceptance, isn’t the key thing what happens in the more exposed summer months?
Now, if someone was to advocate for Shaggytember or Augrowth, then we would be talking about a proper revolution.
