A Question for the Guys: Whenever you unintentionally get a chance to see another person’s (the opposite sex) armpits, do you actually stare at those armpits and discriminate against those with dark underarms?
Me: While great facial features are the surest way to get noticed, there are some other features that people look at. That includes underarm shading. On a personal note, I do not look at female armpits right away, as one TV deodorant commercial is implying. Men do not use the shading of armpits as the preliminary gauge of attractiveness; that is unless they want to start dating more armpits and less females. We don’t exactly go around raising your arms to check what’s under there. Personally, I am a leg man and that is another case entirely. Perhaps I should interview some armpit-obsessed guys.
Anyway, before I go off my path again…
Okay. So what if we DID NOT stop to help out all damsels in distress wildly flailing their arms to catch attention because they’re stranded by the roadside because of a flat tire? Females, don’t blame your dark underarms. It could be a number of reasons:
- We’re in a rush.
- We’re probably thinking that someone else might come your way to help out. We’re already in a rush, remember?
- Some could think that it’s more of a safety issue — one isn’t sure about the new ways of carjacking.
Okay. So what if we DID stop to help out all damsels in distress wildly flailing their arms to catch attention because they’re stranded by the roadside because of a flat tire? Females, don’t give too much credit to your white underarms. It could be just one reason. In this day and age, there are still some knights in shining armor who don’t care a lot about armpits.
So what’s the bottom line idea of this post? Simple. There’s more to life than just whiter armpits and fairer skin. I think females do deserve a break from the daily marketing bombardment aimed at exploiting some insecurities.
Um, as a parting shot. If a female is hellbent on beautifying herself, we are not stopping her. However, she shouldn’t get too obsessed, either.
