I also push back on this idea that we must keep our body hair to defy the wants of men. I enjoy shaving and keeping my body smooth. It brings me joy and pleasure. I shave even if I am on my cycle or will not encounter any man sexually. You are right that ultimately, it is our invividual choice that matters.
