“Long hair…… Don’t Care!!!!!! #artforfreedom” This was an Instagram post by Madonna in 2014 where she showed off her armpit hair or “freedom pits.” she’s passed on body acceptance to her daughter, Lourdes.
A few days ago, the pop icon Instagrammed a photo taken of her and Lourdes where her daughter’s underarm hair was front and center. Social media, as usual, reacted. Some were repulsed by her armpit hair; others didn’t care while still some were fascinated with the statement.
In the photo, Madonna is standing behind Lourdes. The 21-year-old is reaching up to hug her mother, her unshaven pits on full display. Madonna has her hands on her daughter’s face.
Armpit hair is a very personal beauty statement. Some men find women who don’t shave their body hair very sexy. They prefer her as natural as possible. For others, it’s the exact opposite. They don’t want hair found anywhere.
Whether Lourde’s “freedom pits” bother you or not, you can’t deny she’s comfortable with her body and doesn’t care what anyone has to say. If you’re all right with putting your shaven or unshaven pits out there for the world to see, all the power to you!
We’ll leave it up to you to decide if the photo of mother and daughter, (hairy pits included), is disgusting or fascinating.
