shaving

If there’s one thing that drives me crazy, it must be the Western obsession with shaving. Many people every hair of their bodies except for their heads. Well some do.

I’m hairy and don’t care for shaving. I often get a bad rash for putting a razor on my neck and plucking my facial hair off (like feathers off a chicken). Hence I’d rather not bother shaving and look like some sort of mountain man at times.

From the religious point of view, Orthodox Judaism (four corners of the face), Orthodox Christianity (Eastern Church) and most branches of Islam reject the practice of shaving. I guess I’m safe considering any or all Abrahamic traditions.
