Morgan Mikenas, a fitness blogger, decided that her followers should be able to feel comfortable in their own bodies. Working towards a goal such as weightloss or muscle definition are great, but she sees too many people who are pressured to look a certain way…and when they don’t, they no longer feel happy about their own bodies.
I’m not trying to make all of humanity stop shaving their armpits and leg hair anymore,” said Morgan in a clip she posted to YouTube. “I just want to inspire others to do what works for you, what makes you feel the most comfortable.”
She was bullied in grade school for having hairy legs, and it inspired her to just let her body do what it wants to do. Shaving her body and arm pits took so much time and effort – effort that she would rather put into other areas of her life – and just stopped buying razors and taking the time to shave.
Her boyfriend is happy that she is happy, and while it was itchy in the beginning, she says that her hair is soft and doesn’t bother her at all anymore.
We’ve been conditioned [by society] to it not being our taste. I’m actually kind of bothered by the fact that I don’t like it.” One comment wrote.
Others quickly jump to her defense, stating that if that is how she is the happiest, who cares? That is exactly her point.
Just do whatever makes you feel good.” She says.
