Erin, in response to the post “Confession: Top 10 Reasons I Don’t Own a Razor”

I volunteer at my local teen health clinic, and during our training retreat, one of the first ground rules we all agreed to follow was “don’t yuck my yum.” This basically translates to “respect the tastes of others, especially around sex-related topics because it is so easy to be self-conscious about that sort of thing.” So Erin, if you don’t like pubic hair, you can go right ahead and seek out bare-skinned buddies to get it on with – plenty of them exist, and seem quite happy with their grooming regimens – but don’t be a jerk about other people’s tastes. I don’t think it’s your (or anyone’s) business to insult other people’s vulvas on the Internet.
