And it certainly wouldn't occur to me to shave just for their benefit.
When I was at university in the UK in the late Noughties, one of the most liberating things about travelling back to my native China for the summer break was not having to worry about shaving.
I for one rarely shave: armpits or legs for that matter, and feel almost no pressure to do so (unless I'm attending a function or with expat friends).
The fact is that I, like many Chinese and East Asian women, am not very hairy.
Clearly, the fact that a debate has been sparked means the Hairy Legs Club is a positive thing.
Reading through the tumblr posts, the concept has been an inspiration for women to come out the hairy closet.
Of course in the UK, such a campaign would be a clear push against social expectations.
But in China, it remains fairly acceptable to be unshaven in public.
The Hairy Legs Club tumblr makes for interesting, right-on reading, but some of those legs are, let's be honest, extremely hairy – it's a startling sight, even for those of us who are used to our partners only shaving or waxing when necessary.
Aditya Sehgal, the North Asia Regional Director for Reckitt Benckiser's (RB), which owns Veet, said in an interview with Bloomberg in 2012 that "It's not how much hair you have, it's how much you think you have.” He was right.
Veet's sales picked up in 2012 and the brand became one of the fastest growing in China.
The focal point of the Hairy Legs Club is a tumblr account where women can post pictures and share their experiences and thoughts.
Looking through it, there are some stories that emphasise why this a potentially important issue.
Even in a big city, seeing hair remains just as much the norm, as seeing none.
