125. Has anyone else noticed
that this thread seems to be a lot more of people stating their opinions rather than discussing how those opinions were formed? Or you know, just generally the politics of shaving? I see a lot of people claiming they weren't influenced by pop-culture, porn, friends, lovers, society or whatever, but somehow I find that really incredibly difficult to believe. If you live in society, you're going to be influenced by it. If you have friends or lovers, you're going to be influenced by them.

I think it says a lot that people are so unwilling to discuss WHY they have the opinions they do. I don't see the point in justifying everything as "well it's MY opinion and has NOTHING to do with anything else!" How is that a political discussion? It's blatantly ignoring the politics at work.
