A photo of a Filipina proudly displaying her unshaven armpit has sent Pinoy netizens into a frenzy.

Posted on Twitter by a certain Bea, the photo has gone viral with over 72,400 likes.

It has also been retweeted more than 10,300 times.

“Kung panget daw ang babaeng may buhok sa kili-kili bakit ang ganda ko?? ABANTE MGA BABAE!” Bea wrote as a caption to the image, which she uploaded during the International Women’s Day that falls every 8th of March.

This selfie of a young woman with her underarm hair exposed has stirred a hot debate online.

Some netizens said it’s gross to see such a photo, but many still believe that the picture showed the confidence and courage of a woman who wants to challenge social norms.

Here are the positive remarks left by netizens in the comment section:

“MA’AM ANG GANDA MO.”

“Luv the confidence.”

“YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL. OMG. 😍😍😍”

“Grabe ganda.”

“Sana all pretty.“

“Gorgeous. 😍”

“You are so hot.”

Many people think that personal hygiene dictates that women should shave the hair on their legs and underarms.

Thus, women turn to shaving creams and razors to keep their armpits and legs “feminine and hairless.”



Men, on the other hand, are considered to be manly if they have hairy armpits, chests, and legs.
