Hairy guys

For the longest time now popular culture has had it in for hairy guys.

Any time we've seen men in movies or magazines or on the television, their torsos, legs and arms have been completely and utterly devoid of hair. Unless, of course, they're being portrayed in a negative way.

So color me very surprised while watching a recent episode of Heroes on Hulu to see an attractive woman running her fingers through one of the lead character's very hairy chest.

Granted said character is evil, but still. He is portrayed as an attractive person.

So does this signal a change of tide in public opinion?

Instead of slick skin will we soon be seeing men with fuzzy figures in ads?

Speaking as a hairy guy, I say it's about time.
