Just when you thought...

...they couldn't get more obnoxious.

Armpit hair selfies are taking over Chinese social media

Back in March, Madonna's Instagram photo of her armpit hair was quickly picked apart—both praised and criticized—by the digital pack. Everyone on social media suddenly had opinions about it. Are we really, as a culture, this divided on body hair?

A recent competition in China put that into perspective. Women are submitting photos of their unshaven underarms, and starting a conversation about it.

According to Rocket News, the photos are submissions for a best armpit hair selfie competition, the campaign for which appeared on Sina Weibo, China's microblogging platform, on July 17. In less than a week, it had thousands of submissions and millions of views.
