I have almost identical conversations with my head sometimes, but I've come to a truce - I accept it's a side effect of the patriarchy and shave my legs and armpits when I feel like it, but not when I don't, and I refuse to shave my tummy any more - though oddly that's become less hairy si0n5ce .being pregnant.

I love Matthew's typing! :D

Lots of head-hair falls out post-pregnancy, so maybe that's what's going on with your tummy hair? (NB this is a total guess and not backed up by science or even checked with Dr Google.)

I don't think I've ever shaved my tummy but I do pull out the weird stray hairs that I get round my belly button, because they annoy me. For some reason I don't have any kind of inner dialogue about that, it's more like, I dunno, squeezing a spot or something. I guess because nobody sees it (not even me most of the time, I don't actually spend as much time navel-gazing as this post suggests ;-).
