No More Hairy Hands For Me!

I was watching Robin Williams on Jay Leno's Tonight Show yesterday, and just like Claude Rains , who played Captain Renault in Casablanca, was "shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in"...in Rick's Cafe, I was shocked, shocked to see how hairy Robin Williams' hands were! Now don't get me wrong. Next to Michael Palin, I don't think there is a comedian that I love more than Robin Williams, but......and forgive me Robin.......he looks like a gorilla in a man's suit. It was his hands! I just couldn't believe how completely hairy his hands were! He had so much hair on his hands, that it looked liked he needed to comb it!

Now, Robin may be perfectly comfortable with his hairy hands, but as a t-girl who's hands, arms, legs and chest used to be covered with fur, it distresses me, and I have a nearly overwhelming desire to wax him! ;-)

I'll go with that one... Robin Williams is incredibly hairy...

I have to say I was shocked at how much like Dennis Hopper he looks in that picture...

Looking at that picture I feel unbelievably lucky for once to have been born with genes that don't give me too much body hair.

He's one of my favorites too, but his hairyness always bugged me. Early in his career, he used to wear revealing outfits... like suspenders without a shirt. Blecch! I'll take a smooth, soft woman any day... and also be one myself. ;)

I was just thinking about this in the morning, while getting ready for work.

Unlike Leslie, where leg hair is such an issue, I just have a little hair on my chest and back but it is driving me crazy. I have minimal facial hair (meaning I can go two or three days before shaving) but removing the chest hair may become another way for me to "deal with it" ("It" being way more than hair). I've also thought about bleaching my hand and arm hair. Not a lot of hair, but it shows.

I've always noted, btw, that those who have a lot of body hair generally have severe male pattern baldness. I guess, in that respect, I'm lucky.

@ Stace

Poor Dennis Hopper is in bad shape with prostate cancer now. He's only 73, but he looks like 83.
I loved him in Easy Rider, Apocalypse Now, and Blue Velvet.

@ Jenny

I envy your genes. I've had to resort to an epilator, to relieve me of my fur coat. ;-)

@ Amy

I remember him in Mork & Mindy from back in the 70's, when he used to wear low cut tee shirts. He's definitely a hairy beast. I'm with you, Amy. I prefer smooth soft skin too!

@ Calie

I've been epilating my legs for 20 years now, but about a year ago, I started doing the rest of my body. Epilating my chest for the first time was pure torture, but I'm so glad I did it! Nothing says male, more than a hairy chest.

Your theory about male pattern baldness may be right. It seems that with each hair I gained on my body in my twenties, I lost two on my head!

Wow I never noticed before, but he has got a lot on his hands! I assume his palms are hairless!!!

I didn't realize that Robin's hands were so hairy. My father had a lot of hair all over this body, and he was bald by the time he was 40. I am just glad to have my grandfathers genes as he died with a full head of hair with a lot of gray.

One of the side benefits of having to block all hormones is that I have lost almost all of my hair on my back and legs, hardly have to shave my chest as what's left is very blond as well as my arms.
Ah the joys of being woman!!

@ Two Auntees

What nature has graciously provided you, I take care of with an epilator. I used to be a hairy beast.
I can't begin tell you how thankful I am to have a smooth torso, fanny, arms and legs!

Thank you so much for following my blog, Sarah.

Yes Robin does have a lot of hair on his hands and all over his body, but as a gay man some of us really like that... I think hairy men have a masculine look to them that smooth men do not have. I often wish I was hairy, but never got those genes past onto me... Since I didn’t get those genes, I feel that is why I like hairy men...

Robin Williams is such a success and thankfully does not have the hang-ups that all you loosers have.. If you ladies want hairless.. go munch on some carpet.."Iroic isnt it" Guys are hairy, stop trying to make men into woman and cater them to your 'lolly pop" and "unicorn" world.. If my chest hair was long enough.. I would strangle your necks with it.. you all suck.

Amy K. said...

We suck... yet you're commenting on a blog post over two years old. What an idiot.
