The Great “Do You Wash Your Legs In The Shower?” Debate Is Raging On Twitter

What a fascinating time we live in. It’s not quite the Age of Enlightenment or the Neoclassical Period, but who else but those of us living and breathing today have been lucky enough to live through the great debates of the blue versus gold dress, Yanny or Laurel and Beach or Door?  Our great-grandkids will be looking down from their oxygen pods while harvesting cloud water relishing this philosophical period that we are just taking for granted. But don’t worry, because it’s not too late to be a part of the latest humanitarian debate threatening to trump eclipse all others. You might be spitting out a “DUH” to this question, but the results have got people emotionally involved, so take a moment to ponder… do you wash your legs in the shower?

The “Great Leg Washing Debate” started a few days ago when Twitter user Conor Arpwel posted a harmless poll asking simply “Do you wash your legs when you take a shower?”. Since posted, close to 800,000 people have voted and the thread is full of angry clean legged and dirty legged people kicking each other about their uptightness versus nastiness in regards to their leg cleansing regime (or lack thereof).

I am personally here for the non leg washers, because I love a good underdog, but they also have such unique debate tactics. For example:

I’m also here for Twitter user Kyle Kendo who suggests that instead of washing our legs, we should just throw them out and get new ones. Spoken like a true American!

Elite Daily pointed out the relationship ruining component of this debate, with user Mrs. King tweeting “I just found out my husband doesn’t wash his legs in the shower. We gotta divorce now.” I asked my spouse if he washed his legs and he asked if the soapy residue off his “his junk” running down his legs counted as washing his legs. And that right there, Friends, is proof that there is a soul mate out there for every one of us.

This leg cleanliness debate is reminding me of the joke “What is the true definition of a WASP?”. Answer: Someone that gets out of the shower to pee. I mean, can this joke be safely applied to the leg washers versus non-leg washers, too, or did I just out myself as a major dirt bag? Debate amongst yourselves.
