that's right. and because of that, we have hair. in a lot of places. so many places that i'm gonna list the external places that should NOT have hair.

palms of hands
soles of feet
underside of forearm
glans of penis and clitoris
the area around ear canal
lips (the actualy lips themselves, but the area around does have hair)


There ya go, all the places that should not have hair, but any other place on yur body is perfectly normal to have hair.

But in response to savethetigers, hair doesn't have be 'disgusting' or 'ugly', and just be something that men should have, hair can be beautiful, if its long, short, curly, or straight, you should learn to love every part of your body, and you will feel way more self confident!

Don't panic! The majority of people do NOT have abnormal hair growths. Yes, it's okay to have underarm hair. Perhaps Gummy mistyped or misquoted...but if it makes you feel better, go grab your friends and inspect their arms near bright sunlight. You'll find that almost everyone is completely covered with hair, although some of it may be very fine and light. Humans are mammals, after all.

lol, i just looked really close right now and i realize I too, have hair on the underside of my forearm, it's so fine, and blonde, and unnoticable! i didn't even see it before!! how funny!

But only half of the underside of my forearm has hair on it, like rihgt near my wrist nd that little area there, i don't think there is any hair!.

ehh, it's tiny hair. practically invisible. practically not there. for all intents and purposes, it's not there unless it can be seen without super-close inspection.

stop worrying about your body hair unless the above condition describes you.

I agree with that.

You shouldn't worry about you body hair, unless you have that disease because, girls/guys, everyone has hair! it's nothing to be ashamed/embarrassed about!

Oh I know- I wasn't worried about the physical appearance of the hair- I was just worried that its presence indicated some kind of disease or disorder or something! Thanks for clearing that up- I was so worried!
