Proving my personal theory that this is the single most important issue of our times, Salon has posted a letter from a young woman who complains "All the guys I'm dating want me to shave down there. Doesn't anybody like the full bush anymore?" And they've gotten 330 letters from people who want to hash this issue out. So, apparently, it's hit a nerve.
The people who love shaved women argue that it has nothing to do with infantilization, and everything to do with what men have seen in porn. Which is good news, I suppose, although it sort of suggests that they've never thought too deeply about porn at all. Does porn trade in infantile images of women a bit? Mmmm... yes, Daddy!
Of course, the problem is that the rest of us are quiet about what we find sexy, so "sexy" becomes equivalent with the porn aesthetic- as stupid as a heavy metal video and synthetic as a rubber nipple. I find it odd that so many people are attracted to women... so long as they're not the original model, but have been modified in some way. Doesn't anybody just have a fetish for human beings anymore?
