Abbie Chatfield refuses to shave until quarantine is over

Because feminism

BEAUTYcrew Beauty Editor / August 31 2020

Although she’s been spending her days inside because of quarantine, it seems Abbie Chatfield is still being held to pre-COVID beauty standards by men on the Internet and she’s not having a bar of it.

The Bachie star shared a truly glorious rant to her Instagram stories where she lovingly strokes her unshaven limbs on camera while firmly talking to her audience, “at this late stage, I’m not shaving my legs until I’m out of quarantine. Why? Because why would I?”. 

She also included a powerful message to cap off the vid, calling out the hypocrisy of men for attacking her for not shaving her hair despite it being perfectly acceptable for them to keep theirs: “Hope all men can deal with that!!!! God forbid I don’t exist to please you!!!! God forbid I follow the exact same grooming standards as you have your whole life!!!!”. 

And honestly, amen sister! Quarantine has been hard enough without having to worry about if we’re all staying hairless enough to still be considered ‘socially acceptable’. 

 She ended the message on a light note however, choosing to not let the haters get to her, and instead called herself out for some quality quarantine binge-watching, “ And yes that is Real Housewives of Potomac in the background. Yes Giselle!”  

Abbie’s leg hairs are nothing compared to her co-stars glow-ups. These are the best beauty transformations from The Bachelor franchise.
