I went to a hippie grad school before moving to China...hairy armpits and legs didn't surprise me.

I live in USAnia during the hay days of Lilith fair when it was all about armpit hair and stinky rebellion ( I mean that in the nicest possible way) and kinda got over it then and there... when I moved to China in '04, I didn't even notice it! That said, for as long as I have been here, I've never dated a local lady so I've never had to deal with the issue on a personal up-close basis....

that said, it's not as common in Beijing as it is in other areas I've visited/lived in

When I was at a medical college, I was teaching the nurses. A fair number of them were trimmed in summer.

With some of the girls I've dated, about a third trimmed the privates

Perhaps you could ask him why he has one and what it means to him.  Then you could ask him what he thinks other Chinese people think about facial hair.  Once you understand his perspective you are better informed about whether or not to offer your opinion.

I spent a whole semester teaching my public speaking students not to say "thank you for listening" at the end of their speeches, only to find out that the Chinese judges are actually looking for this. It's a cultural difference.  You've got to figure out the cultural context before offering your cultural perspective, I think.

Tell him to just shave the damn stupid looking thing off and to wait a few years before trying again.

For some Chinese women, the armpit hair is their biggest visual proof they she's a big girl now.

"Toes", she said huskily. "I just loved curly-haired toes. I'll do anything for curly haired toes" Then she bent down closer and whispered in his ear. "If only you give me the ring"
