I'm studying and researching about hormones and autism in general. I wanted to know do any of you have lots of body hair?

I think I'm offended. What a stupid question.

I think my body hair is somewhere between light and average for a woman.

To be honest, I don't know. Women tend to shave so much around here that there isn't really anyone to compare to, so I have no idea what's naturally a lot or not.

My arm hair developed early, but overall, I am much less hairy than my NT father. My AS grandpa, though, was called "Harry," but didn't look it.

I have less body hair than most males, but that’s probably more due to my being part Asian than Autistic.

I have a general hairiness that isn’t noteworthy or unusual, but there are a few patches of very thick (and long) body hair, and a few other patches of no hair whatsoever: that may also be normal though, I’ve never thought to find out.

If I let my body hair grow (which I don't) its not heavy or extensive. It became a little denser after I turned 50 but not by much.

I hate hair anywhere on me apart from my head. If there was a magic pill you could take to stop it growing I would take it in an instant. Oddly enough I don't mind it at all on other people. Apologies for the digression.

Almost no chest hair but otherwise a typical level of body hair. My head hair has always been very fast growing. It has thinned at 62 but is still a ways from have bald spots.

This only replace 'Asian' with 'Amerind'.
I'm also a sinodont so if my corpse turns up they might misidentify me at first depending on how much there is to work with.

Interesting, not heard Sinodonty before.
Just looked at that page and the one linked to there on shovelled incisors: my top two central incisors have the side ridges at the back they talk of there.
They’re also quite big compared to my other teeth and the central gaps of my upper and lower sets don’t line up.
My head hair is pretty thick, but it also curls to a middling degree (think cavalier rather than perm).

Yes. I don't recall being aware of another white European at my level.

It was not so cool to have hairy armpits in the gym locker room at 10. It was the talking point many times :wink:

I have body hair on my body. My Mum says my back has body hair. She called it a forest. I can't see my back so I don't know. On TV adverts no one has body hair. They must be some sort of alien species not to have any body hair. I assumed women did not have any body hair at all due to the adverts, ans I was quite surprized when my Mum mentioned that women have hair under their arms and around their downstairs. I thought that only men had that! :mrgreen:
(I had thought that the few TV shows that showed women with hair under their arms... That it was some sort of fake hair like when they show women wearing fake beards for the humour of it).

I have pretty normal body hair for an adult woman. The only place I grow thick and dark hair is where you'd expect (head, armpits, groin, calves). Every now and again I get the odd dark chin hair, toe hair, or only slightly visible upper lip fuzz, but I'm pretty sure most women have these kinds of hairs. I am just unashamed and have no problem openly admitting it. :lol:
