It’s the year 2022, and ladies with body hair are more accepted than they used to be. Each one should respect their body and other’s at the same time. In this story she was surprised when her brother-in-law chastised her for not shaving her legs above the knee, which he noticed when her skirt rode up. Read the story and let us know what you think about this.
So, my f19, sister, f28 and brother in law came over with the kids for dinner at my parents house. I was watching my nieces while dinner was getting ready, we sat down and I happened to sit next to my brother in law. I was wearing a skirt and it was accidentally lifted above my knee, my brother in law looked down at my leg and made a face then loudly said “Oh shooo, Op! This is gross, you should’ve shaved, that hair isn’t supposed to be there”.
Everyone stared, I told him “if it’s not supposed to be there then why does it grow there, can you explain?” He was like “it’s just not supposed to be there”, I pointed at his mustache and say “well, guess the same thing can be said about your little mustache then, huh?”. He looks at me eyes wide open, and awkward silence takes over though some laughed.
My sister told me to knock it off as my brother in law got up from his chair and went inside the bathroom. My sister followed and I could hear him having a breakdown asking her if there was something wrong with his mustache, my brother and I kept giggling but dinner got cut short cause my brother in law wanted to leave.
I later got scolded by my sister saying I stepped over the line and disrespected someone who’s older than me, who’s her husband and demanded I apologize to him for insulting him and ruining dinner. Did I go too far here? Did I over react?
