Ever since she replaced Ann Landers in 2003, Amy Dickinson has been giving straight-up, no nonsense advice to readers of the The Chicago Tribune and other papers. Sometimes her responses hit a nerve, but for the most part she dishes out old-fashioned common-sense advice.
So a few days ago, she got a question from Curious Guy: “Dear Amy, Why don’t women typically remove the hair on their arms (elbow to wrist?)." He went on to say that he'd seen lots of women, blondes and brunettes, who had noticeable arm hair. Women shave their legs, why not their arms, he asked.

Dickinson's response? Pure gold:
“Maybe women don’t shave their forearms because they have to work an extra 60 days a year in order to earn the same pay as a man in the same job. That extra time spent trying to make a living really cuts into a typical woman’s primping time," she wrote.
"As much as women enjoy shaving their legs and under arms in order to look smooth and tidy (for men), there are just so many hours in a day, my friend. But thank you for noticing and scrutinizing our arm hair."

"Thank you sooooo much for being my mom. If I had a different mom I would punch her in the face and go find you." LOL!
