Tights in Winter

It's the middle of winter here in the Pacific Northwest, and I am constantly in dresses with tights. Why? 

1) Because it's cold as Hoth out there.

2) Because traditional beauty standards dictate that in order to wear clothing that bares legs, one must shave. Tights allow me to hide my cavewoman legs. I like to have a little "undercoat" to keep me warm during these months, and tights hide that.

Now I'm not saying that anyone needs to shave, ever, if they don't want to. I'm just saying that one of the beauty standards that I can't break myself of is unshaved legs in public.

What are your thoughts on hairy legs? What's your comfort level?
