When speaking to male individuals my age, once the typical questions regarding the electricity and buggies have been answered, the next question tends to take a very different turn. The true self comes out and the gentleman will say something to the effect of “There must be a lot of untapped potential in the community eh? You know … the girls … I am sure if you put them in modern clothes, there would be some super hot ones … right?”
The problem is that it would take considerably more than just wrapping some fresh cloth around her to get her up to your standards sir.
The biggest ove rsite is the fact that Mennonite girls do not shave. Anywhere! Follicle maintenance is just not a part of a Mennonite woman’s beauty repertoire. But their repertoire list isn’t that long to begin with. I digress.
What is the reasoning behind it though? The simple answer would seem to be “Because the good Lord intended it to be so.” If he didn’t want his woman hairy, he wouldn’t have put hair all over her body. Although this may be true for the odd modern and enlightened hippie Mennonite woman, the truth is they are just downright ignorant to the practise. Having spoken to a female individual who could be considered a part of the older generation, they had never heard of the idea. Shave … Why?
As for the latest generation, the same still rings true. Although with the effects of globalization the Mennonite girls are becoming more aware of the outside world, very few have heard of the practise and those that do, see it as too “fancy.”
So fellas, next time you dream of catching an untainted Mennonite girl who is unaware of her beauty, just beware that you will have to put in a lot of work to get her up to your standards. Much like buying a cheap house to flip, you’re going to be putting in more hours than you ever fathomed.
