The New York Times has picked up on the "trend" of women not shaving their leg and armpit hair, counting Mo'Nique and singer Amanda Palmer among women who don't like the shaved look. There's been a lot of talk recently about both women, which is a bit odd, considering shaving is uncommon in many other countries. It's a big deal only because our culture makes it so.

I think shaving has its place. Even though I've been known to get lazy about depilating, I love having smooth, glossy legs. But I don't care if other women choose not to — doesn't matter to me one way or another. Where do you stand on this? Do you think you could stop shaving and feel confident? (Or maybe you already are au naturel?) Or is going the free and easy route only for celebrities who are already too glam and rich to care what other people think?
