Hey, I have noticed that tons of guys have been shaving thier legs @ school, and was wondering if it may be "gay" or such. My legs are no really hairy, but have hair on them, i kinda like them but, what is your advice, should I shavve them, or leave them?

Shave if you want to, don't if you'd rather not.

'Gay' currently refers to be men being attracted to other men, not what you do with your body hair. The two things are unrelated.

I say before you do anything drastic ask one of the boys in your school why they are shaving thier legs. Dont ever give into something because others are doing it. They also just may be on the swim team, or may have some kinda new really stupid trend that is starting. Look into it before you decided to shave off all your leg hair. Once its gone its gonna take awhile to grow back. Chances are you will regret it!!

Same could go for girls! I always wondered why it was generally accepted that women shave their legs and men don't. Personally, I leave my hair alone because I like my legs that way (also I can't be arsed to shave - waste of time.)

Perhaps you should try shaving if you are curious because it will grow back (unlike doll's hair! Hehe) That way you can decide!
