The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Cheezit, the fuzz

"Defoliating a Victory Garden sure works up an appetite." George Tirebiter, Sr.

Sunday I brought up the possibility that women might suddenly decide that depilation isn't worth the bother.

In a wholly-unrelated survey, Treehugger is asking its female readers if they shave.

You might assume that because it's Treehugger, there is going to be a substantial percentage (though not, as of this writing, anywhere near a majority) that wouldn't dream of such a thing. And, for the same reason, there just about has to be a response like this:

Don't forget those of us who use heated tree-sap wax to remove our "unwanted" hair. Legs are left smooth and supple, and the wax is tossed into a "green bin" as part of the local recycling program. Though it hurts more, it does last longer and there are no plastic razors or disposable blades to toss out.

Waste not, want not.

Though it hurts more...

The purely partisan part of me wants to know: What's the downside?
