Rachel McAdams Inspired This Yoga Teacher To Keep The Razor Off Her Underarm And Slams Haters

“‘Men who want a ‘natural woman’ when they see something natural on women.”

The whole “no shaving” debacle had thrown many people off when there was a sudden influx of women who were ditching the razor blades. Such as when Rachel McAdams became one among tens of Hollywood stars, models, and celebrities who chose to show their armpit hair during a photoshoot for Bustle. And along with her is a throng of women who refuse to accept societal norms.

One of them is a yoga teacher named Maria Margolies. The 44-year-old embraces her natural body and shared that she hasn’t shaved for 10 years now.

The mom shared that she’s been shaving her underarm and legs, and trimming her eyebrows since she was 12. Raised in a conservative Catholic family, Maria found following societal norms to be something normal to do until a little over a decade ago.

“It’s my body, it’s my choice,” she told The New York Post. “I stopped shaving because I couldn’t come up with a good reason for why I was doing it in the first place. Women are taught that it’s not okay to have body hair but I’m confident in my choice not to shave if I don’t want to. It’s empowering to stand my ground.”

She added, “I don’t need anyone’s approval. I feel sorry for anyone who feels they need to be hateful toward me based on whether I shave or not.”

Many share the same views, including SaRae Nixon of New Jersey. The 20-year-old psychology student agreed to Maria’s words.

She easily debunk the idea that armpit hair is dirty when men themselves never cared about it, “When people see my underarms, they’ll question me for not shaving or make comments about it looking ‘dirty,’ but I’m like, ‘Men don’t shave, and we don’t call them dirty.’”

“This is how God made me. He wouldn’t have put hair there if it wasn’t meant to be there,” Nixon added.

And she also pitied the haters, “I don’t need anyone’s approvals. I feel sorry for anyone who feels they need to be hateful toward me based on whether I shave or not.”
