A 22-year-old man is sending Reddit users into a frenzy after sharing how he shamed his girlfriend into shaving her legs.

On April 23, Reddit user shavingaita shared his story in the AITA

(Am I The A******) forum.

"She pretty much only shaves when the hair

is physically irritating her skin," he wrote.

"It doesn’t necessarily bother me because I love her for who she is, but I do have a preference toward smooth, silky skin. Who wouldn’t, right?".

Shavingaita was showering with his

girlfriend when she made a comment about how she needed to shave her underarms.

"She turned to her legs and said something along the lines of, 'I think these are gonna be up next soon. That hair is starting to bother me too,' " he wrote.

"I said, 'Yeah, you think it’s time to shave your legs. How long has it been?' ".

"She said, 'I thought it didn’t bother you that I don’t shave. It hasn’t been an issue this whole relationship and now I feel like I’m being shamed' ".

Shavingaita’s tale inspired some intense debate in the comment section.

As they say, if you don’t have
