BBC新闻[翻译]:对待体毛的态度属于性别歧视吗?

There is such a double standard. Like a woman having armpit hair and a man having armpit hair is exactly the same thing. Body hair and whether or not you should shave or wax, there's more pressures on men now these days to do that. As a man having a hairless body is about beauty but not masculinity. In the case of women, having a hairless body means being beautiful and feminine. So you can't be feminine and have body hair. Hey I'm Frankie. We're going to be looking into whether attitudes towards body hair can be sexist. I don't like hair to be honest, I'd rather not. Everything for girls needs to be shaved off. Clean yourself, look nice for your man. I don't think it necessarily pushes any androgynous agenda.

I'm a bit sexist when it comes to body hair. Have you ever thought why you actually have those views in the first place? I'll explain in a bit what Kim Kardashian, a razor advert and Darwin have to do with it. But first are some examples when people have reacted really badly to photos of women with body hair. This model got rape threats. A rape can be seen as a way to express control. So here we could ask ourselves: is body hair something that is out of control and needs to be controlled? Arvida did get some positive comments too. I haven't shaved my body hair in almost three years. I realised that I wasn't shaving because I actually wanted to. I was only doing it because society made me feel pressure to just because I'm a woman. The Billie razor got loads of people talking. Ashley helped pulled the video together. Because that Billie commercial was the first to my knowledge to ever show women with body hair, the response was overwhelmingly positive, which was incredible. Of course like we got some negative response to it.

这方面存在严重的双重标准。就好比一个女人有腋毛,一个男人也有腋毛,这完全是一样的事。体毛的话,不管你是不是应该刮掉或者上蜡,现在男人有更多的压力要做这事。作为一个男人,无体毛的身体意味着美丽,但是不意味着有男子气概。而对于女人来说,无体毛的身体意味着美丽和女人味。所以你不可能有女人味又同时有体毛。嗨,我是弗朗姬。我们将研究一下对待体毛的态度是否属于性别歧视。我不喜欢体毛,说实话,我宁愿没有。女孩的任何体毛都需要刮掉。把你自己清理干净,让你的男人觉得你很漂亮。我觉得没有必要推行男女都一样的政策。说到体毛,我有一点点性别歧视。你是否曾经想过为什么你在第一时间会有这些想法?我会用金·卡戴珊(译者注:服装设计师,演员,企业家)、一个刮胡刀广告和爱因斯坦来解释一下这个问题。但是首先,这里有一些人们对有体毛的女性照片反应非常不好的例子。这个模特(因为发了带体毛的照片)收到了强奸的威胁。强奸可视为表达控制的一种方式。所以我们需要问问自己:体毛是否和失控有关,需要被控制?阿尔维达确实也收到了一些积极的反馈。我几乎三年都没有刮体毛。我意识到我没有刮是因为我确实想这么做。我刮体毛只是因为社会让我感到了这么做的压力,因为我是一个女人。碧莉剃刀成为了人们热议的产品。艾什莉帮忙把这些广告视频都整理到了一起。因为据我所知比莉广告是第一个展示有体毛的女性的,得到的反馈是压倒性的正面,真是不可思议。当然我们也收到了一些负面的反映。
