Women in Apocalyptic Fiction Shaving Their Armpits.

Lisa Wade writes for Sociological images:

If gender ideology had lost this battle with realism, we’d see armpit hair on the women in Gilligan’s Island, Planet of the Apes, The Blue Lagoon, Beauty and the Beast, Waterworld, Lost, and The Hunger Games — but we don’t.

Our interest in realism only goes so far. Armpit hair on women is apparently one of its limits.
