And, the youth among them probably just smirked. By using that term, Donald Trump sounded old.
In her well-researched book "Girls & Sex," Peggy Orenstein documents a growing trend among Generation Z females. That's to shave or wax away the hair surrounding the genital area.
Many of their male sexual partners perceive that kind of hair as "gross." Yes, just as woman eliminate hair under their arms and on their legs, they are doing that in the genital region.
Generation Z didn't invent this trend. For at least two decades I have spoken to females belonging to Generations Y and X who waxed regularly. They did that to please their partners.
What is new is that it seems to becoming standard.
Of course, some advocates for women might assess the hair removal as a form of oppression. During second wave feminism there were leaders who told us to stop shaving under our arms and our legs. After all, at least at that time, European women didn't do that.
Will halting waxing become a major issue during third wave feminism? That could happen. Orenstein explains the medical risks associated with having no hair around that private part. For example, it has been found to increase the odds of developing a sexually transmitted diseases.
