Watch: Women are dyeing their armpit hair in this colorful new trend

I have done a lot of things throughout my life to support positive body images, but this one I am not sure I could do!

In a colorful new trend, women are growing out their armpit hair and dyeing it a rainbow of  colors like bright green and neon pink.

Many of the women who post photos of their colored pits on social media feel like the movement is all about sending a message of self-confidence and positive body image.

In May, Miley Cyrus posted an Instagram photo showing off her pink pits, and The New York Times even more recently picked up on the trend.

“I find it really cute,” Destiny Moreno explains in a separate video, comparing her colorful underarms to a “fashion accessory.”

“We’re all conditioned to shame body hair … but it’s important to question why you think these things,” she added.

Inspired by the movement, some groups of feminists are even hosting “pit-ins,” where they gather to dye their armpit hair as a group.

Would you do this? Would you let your daughter do this?
