      In terms of “giving in” to kids, I think there’s a difference between preemptively planning things so that a young child can stay engaged or not get too bored while you shop (like letting them bring a book, or finding an age-appropriate way for them to help with the shopping) and giving in to their whims. At work, it drives me crazy to see parents let their kids take toys off the shelf to play with (sometimes I’ll even see kids riding tricycles that are for sale around the store…and then abandoning them when it’s time to check out), or let their kids eat food that hasn’t been paid for yet. There’s a big difference between that and bringing something for a kid to do or engaging with them while you shop. But there’s a happy medium between teaching your kids limits and good behavior and giving in to their every whim. Teaching good shopping behavior doesn’t have to mean making a young child do absolutely nothing. And for very young kids, behavior can be heavily tied to physical feelings like fatigue and hunger, and having snacks on hand can help.

      Some of these contain good information that not everyone is aware of (like the dangers of drinking too much water, or not keeping your dryer’s lint trap clean), but others are pretty commonsense. Yeah, of course choking on food can kill you. And sure, it’s technically possible for a minor cut to kill you if you happen to get a bad infection. But that’s not very common, especially if your immune system is healthy. And with modern medicine, most infections like that can be treated before they get out of control (though antibiotic-resistant bacteria is definitely becoming a serious problem).

      Most men are not pressured to shave their legs and underarms, though some choose to do so. I think facial hair affects your overall appearance more than other forms of body hair do. There’s nothing wrong with having a beard, but a man’s face might look a bit different depending on whether he has a beard/mustache or is clean-shaven, so managing facial hair is a bigger style choice than shaving your legs. Some men’s beards also grow quite long, so it makes sense why a lot of men prefer to keep them trimmed or shaved. It’s also generally socially acceptable for a man to have a well-groomed beard or mustache if he chooses to. Also, maybe you think hair is disgusting on women, but that’s your opinion. I think it’s hot. :)
