Please unlock your caps. It's interpreted as yelling.
Truthfully, I find this post sad. In my experience over the last 20 years, it's mostly straight girls who get all up in knots about silly things like pubic hair, often from actual or perceived pressure from straight men or mainstream media. What a bummer to see that come into dyke circles, when overall, dyke culture has always tended to be really body-accepting and positive when it comes to women.
If you have a preference about your partners pubic hair, that's fine. But no one NEEDS to shave. Public hair doesn't get in the way of any sexual activities, and bodies are just fine as they are, or with what the owner of a given body wants to do with it for themselves.
We're not going tto entertain polls about pubic hairstyles in any section of Scarleteen. It's a waste of our bandwidth, doesn't serve any real purpose, and to boot, I find it all pretty body-negative, unless you want to talk about what you want to do with your OWN body and body hair (even then, it seems like there are aa lot more interesting things to discuss).
