I hate seeing a caterpillar growing on my upper lip.

I have worn a torn coat until my husband took it from me and threw it out after he got me a new coat. I have worn beat up shoes, worn out clothes. I wear what I like.

I also shave my pubic hair. My aspie ex shaved his whole body because he hated body hair. I find pubic and underarm hair disgusting. I do shave though because I do not like dark hair. I also like to be clean but yet I will wear the same clothes everyday, even if they are dirty because I need to have something on when I go for my walks and I have to wear the same pants and shirt to work everyday anyway because it's part of the work uniform. So I change into those before leaving for work.

your aspie ex too... I assume he was more darkish haired. With me it used to be just blond fluff.

When i started using testosterone i got as hairy as a gorilla but my gf won't let me shave my chest. She likes it, go figure. So i tried bleaching it but that turned it yellow which was even more absurd. So now i have to accept it since she shaves only to do me a favor.

We aspies are weird.

Now THAT'S a reason I can see someone wanting to shave. Not because it's the "norm" or how it looks, but how it FEELS! I'm more about how things feel than how they look; one of my above posts mentioned the same about matching clothes :P

I always thought underarm hair was rather pointless. I know that people say it had some purpose in the dark ages, but really, what purpose does it serve only to make your underarms itch and trap sweat? Arm and leg hair doesn't bother me; we were born with it. Underarm hair decides to show up a little later....if we weren't born with it, we don't need it!

Speaking of how things feel, I have something to add. My fingernails. I have to clip them every week or they drive me crazy. I hate when the white part starts to grow in and feels all thick. My fingers can "breathe" when I clip my nails to the part where the nail plate is attached to the nail bed!

not usually, no. it's a waste of energy.

however, being aware of why some things are embarrassing to others (or offends them) is quite important imo - for example, while you may not care about your appearance or what other people think of it, letting your personal hygiene slip because of it is self-defeating imo, as things like that have a way of escalating to the point of ridiculousness.

the same goes for people who care too much, ofcourse. scrubbing your skin raw in order to feel clean and appropriate is probably more detrimental to your health.

I like women who have hairy armpits, the smell I mean catches in the hair. I like to smell them. There are pheromones in them. Veterinarians often use feline pheromone sprays to calm an aggressive cat. The same use can be made of a woman's underarms.

The best way to end embarrassment is to move somewhere that the people are beyond caring what you look like. Usually such places have extremely depressed people due to climate, such as a rainy or snowy climate, and everything seems futile, so you don't have to worry over embarrassment.

I myself have 3 pairs of pants with cargo pockets, and 3 long sleeved buttonless shirts. These are mostly a similar color and it appears that I never change clothes, though I launder them regularly. Minimalism...

I have actually used the feline pheromone spray to try to calm my cats. I'm not sure if it did anything, as Peaches still insists on pooping on the basement floor :P As for humans, I don't particularly enjoy the smell of my armpits lol XD

Ah you live in "Beau Flux". A native of Buffalo told me that Buffalo was an Anglicization of the name "Beau Flux", which was a nickname of the Niagara River by the French, meaning "beautiful flow". I lived there for a few months near the art museum and that park. I like woman's arm pits, but not man's. Women I want to eat!

Not Buff State. I just had a friend from there and I lived with his family for a bit. They were like half German half Italian. Normal Buffalo stuff, going to coffee shops (Spot Coffee), eating at this kid's grandma's house on West Side every Sunday. One time we broke into a huge abandoned hotel downtown and walked around in it. There was a group of religious fanatics living in it, who wrote scriptures on the walls. I think it was those guys "The Brethren". Later I stopped by Buffalo and saw the hotel was torn down.
