Men, I´d like to know how you feel about shaving your armpits? Do you let it grow - or do you shave - or trim?
A lot of men over here in Europe prefer shaving if I look around our gym or my team at martial arts or soccer.

I recognize a lot of men from the USA prefer their pits hairy - not shaved.

I for myself dislike shaving. I trim.

There are more important ways to gauge a mans masculinity than armpit hair.  It may be a good laugh, but you're talking about someone who has a better physique than most of us can imagine, works full time to support a family and has an excellent relationship with his kids.  Ill double his man cred any day on that alone!

Right on. I am proud of my hair. It's one of our masculine traits.

I've noticed that among some younger guys too. I wouldn't personally though; maybe because I was a late bloomer in that department and was ready to catch up with most of friends.

The only times I have ever even contemplated shaving or trimming my armpits is when I think, "that's one reason I'm glad I didn't pursue Olympic swimming or bodybuilding as a career."

I don't find a reason doing this,and yes many people in Europe are shaving even their legs & chest and i vastly disagree on that.

I vote no shaving of the armpits, or most body hair for that matter.

Absolutely not!  Trim when excessive, but otherwise be natural.

I have extremely long arm pit hair. I have been complimented on how masculine it is and have also been teased that it is so long it could be braided. I have trimmed a few times in the past, but I let it go natural for years. I'll never shave it completely. 

I also got the braided comment.  I have trimmed it a couple of times but it is more hassle than it's worth.

Myself, I would trim, but I don't see any reason to shave it off completely. To be honest though I think that as far as women go, a man who looks like he completely ignores his hair until it is Chewbacca-length looks worse than a man who goes a little bit excessive, but that's just me.

I think that if a man looks so vain or obsessed with his appearance that he seems more interested in himself than in women though, then that might "raise questions" or be a turn-off. But in practice I tend to see average guys in day-to-day life erring too much on the slob side than the 'dandy' side, almost like out of some fear of "looking gay"; maybe this is just a Yank thing.

The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More

""It was estimated" -- by whom? Though perhaps my next question is how did that count define "transgender"? I find that number insanely large, but again, depends on the definition used in order to calculate the populations."
