Lou: I admire women who are ignoring social convention

Have your say

Apparently thousands of women are joining the Hairy Legs Movement this summer and have been posting pictures of their unshaven limbs on social media.

I think it’s great. Personally I don’t think I’d have the confidence to go out in public proudly hairy, but I wish I did.

When we posted a hairy leg picture on our Facebook page and asked our lady listeners whether they’d go hairy in public, most people expressed disgust.

Yet when we see pictures of hairy-legged David Beckham in his pants in the papers, no-one bats an eyelid.

I admire those women who are ignoring social convention and doing what’s natural.

Perhaps we should make men shave their legs too – they wouldn’t last a week.
