I live in quite a small world, here in the North West of England. I’m white, middle class and well into middle age. I’ve barely witnessed any violence and my encounters with the police have been brief and courteous. I’ve never known any real suffering, any significant ill-health and I’ve never gone hungry. I live in warmth and want for nothing, able to indulge my passion, listening to music. I’ve recently mastered Spotify, still buy a physical newspaper and regularly watch the news on terrestrial TV. I’m a very lucky man.
My 23 year old daughter tells me, almost in passing, “Women’s body hair is trending now.”
My world just moved slightly off its natural axis. What the hell is she on about?
