Men are posting photos of their hairy chests on Twitter to show they’re attractive and proud of their hairiness. It comes after a (smooth) gay Twitter user posted a tweet on Monday saying: “hairy chests are a massive ick”.
When the criticism began to rack up, the user swiftly deleted his original tweet and switched his account to private.

Honestly, after the *years* of being so ashamed of my body hair, this whole “ick” thing has me smiling. I literally would pluck, shave, do whatever it took to be smooth (and thus acceptable by the Pretty Gays) when I came out.
Now? I’m a fucking gorilla and proud of it. 🦍✨💗

Hairy chests ick??? You mean you like the feminized men who shave their chests?
A hairless man is nice and man with hair on his chest is HOT!!!!
Shaving and waxing is “ick” to use that poor vocabulary deficient guys lingo. Making people feel bad about their bodies is “ick”.
I can’t grow chest hair and came here for the stock photo hottie.
Shoulder’s and back, no.
Amen to that!
I used to feel similarly about the back and shoulder hair. But there have been men who’ve made me sing a different tune…….;-)
I love a hairy chest but was very disappointed to find the last one I got to unwrap was hairless/shaved below the waist – now that was ick – I didn’t know Veet underpants were a thing – return to sender!
I like my men like I like my peanut butter….chunky, not smooth!
Hair is super sexy. Natural wild hair untamed is even hotter.
We loves our chest-es hairy. Smooth is okay, nothing wrong with it, but if I have a choice between the two…?
Probably because I’ve never had hair on my chest or arms…not that you can see. Same for my legs. So I love seeing it all on a man…
I don’t like to generalize – some men look great with body hair, others don’t. For example, when I saw a video trailer of Mark Harmon in something and I noticed how hairy his shoulder tops were, he was over for me, etc. On the other hand, The youtuber Naked Chef, Franco Noreiga wears his chest hair well, etc. etc. etc.
I have loved hairy chested men since Robert Conrad took off his shirt in “The Wild Wild West” years ago.
Oh God yes, shirtless Robert Conrad was enough to make me faint right on to the divan.
I love BOTH. I love MEN. Like long hair it looks great on some people and not others. I am tired of all the hairless men as I like variety
Okay. Can we at least agree that everyone has their own personal tastes. Personally, I’m not into facial or body hair. (I don’t like having a mouth full of hair. That being said, I surprised myself when I stumbled on a couple’s channel where they pit shorts. One of the guys has a scruffy beard and a chest of hair. Not in any way gorilla like, but it’s chest hair on him it’s perfect! I don’t remember being so turned on! Does that change my feelings in general about body and facial hair? Absolutely not! But this guy made my heart skip a beat. He’s just….WOW!
MORE, MORE, MORE… I WANT TO SEE MORE!!!
Hairy men are very sexy.
I think it’s gross when guys shave pubes. Ewwww. Trying to look like pre-teen? Gross.
Me too! Why do they want to look like a child?
Hairy anything is fine as long as they are attractive! Even a hairy bum!
Hairy chest “ick” just threw me back to the 80s where my gay big “brother” would shame me for the amount of hair I had on my chest (and it’s really not that much). From then, I went on to not bother with guys who shaved anything. Trimming was ok, but shaving…? Will I be slammed if I gag over someone who wants the smoothness of a baby’s backside surrounding his junk? Hot is the man who is comfortable with whatever he was given. But, will admit to getting a little faint over the idea of laying my head on a chest of fur.
these are the same men with no fat no fems in their grindr profile. talk about toxic masculinity
If you like the smell of natural masculinity, smell his chest hair. For me instant boner!
Smooth men are like girls. Pointless and yuk.

Sorry, but men posting their hairy chests on Twitter just goes to show that, yes, they are “ick.”
no, they’re not “ick”.
Wow. This topic touched a LOT of raw nerves.. I appreciate a natural, hairy man any day over the female like primped ,preened,waxed,shaved,plucked OVERLY done males who are too fem looking for my taste.. I appreciate a man who is VERY comfortable with what he has to work with…
The reactions to the sight of body hair seem they might be a tad…generational. The whole “no-body-hair” thing seemed to explode after Marky Mark was on that billboard in Times Square and Madonna commented on his abs. After that, the whole “hairless movement” picked up steam, and guys couldn’t wait to get rid of their body hair so they could show off their definition.
Being way older (as in I-remember-the-McCarthy hearings), I don’t recall anyone – other than women – being turned off to men’s body hair, regardless of where it was. Presumably because men didn’t even start wearing swim trunks until the 40s. They were always covered up. So Clark Gable wearing an UNDERSHIRT in a movie in 1934 was revolutionary. Men’s bodies were fully covered up before that. So hairiness was a new thing in the 50s and 60s, and something of a “freedom” thing for the man of that day. Nobody made fun of hairy guys in high school in the ’60s: it was considered masculine. Then the ’90s and ‘skinned-is-in’ took over. Never was a fan of that.
And now some guys are indignant that ‘shoulder hair is icky’? Smooth guys should be smooth and hairy guys – unless THEY don’t like it themselves – can be hairy. Nobody’s forcing anyone to go off with someone they don’t like. Just look the other way, and let people be. That’s what you demand for yourself, isn’t it? So, less criticism about the way others look (which is only the surface, in any case). I’d rather a kind, hairy guy than a snippy smooth guy. Going just by the surface is superficial. How about growing a well-developed…soul?
I love a nice hairy chest pressing against me. Mmmmmm. <3
i love a hairy chest
a drag queen showing his hairy chest? now that’s “ick”.
Bizarre sort of body shaming. This is genes. Don’t like it? Who cares? Find someone you like and leave the rest of us to like men who are natural. Everything from slightly to very hairy.
My better half is Arab, soooo I’m definitely down for the hairy “ick” factor!
Body shaming at its worst. If a man has a hairy chest I think it looks great. If a man is naturally smooth (like my husband) I think that is great. I think the ickiest thing is a clean shaven pubic area. Having sex with someone who has shaved off all of his pubes is like having sex with a prepubescent boy. It makes me wonder if those who prefer the no-pube look are borderline pedophiles.
To each his own, and “ick” isn’t exactly the most mature way of saying things, but to me most of the guys pictured would indeed be a lot more attractive with less hair. Now, those guys don’t necessarily have any reason to care what I think, but I know that I am certainly not alone.
What do you guys do on a cold winter’s night? A hairy chest in bed is great for warmth.
Why can’t we just let people like what they like? People body shaming hairy guys. Shaming smooth guys. Don’t we deal with enough discrimination from heterosexuals without turning on each other? As long as if involves consenting adults, to each his own .
Who is shaming smooth guys? That’s the current “norm”. If guys are naturally smooth, great. If.
