Why are there only two options? I think you should make room for people who want to have hairy legs and don't want to be bothered by people who think hairy legs are gross. You're right to say they might not get what they want, but wanting those things isn't bad, and trying to get those things is also not bad. I don't think people should have to bear the brunt of anything, and I also don't think people should have to give in and get along. I think people should do things they want to do--and we should let them and support them.Ixtellor wrote:What I did come to realize is that you can't change peoples opinions but you can change the laws. It's perfectly legal to have hairy legs. Opinions change overtime naturally and its outside your control. You can be one of the people that stands up for what you believe and bear the brunt, or you can 'give in' to get along.
