CAn we please keep this category for images that are of armpits, not images that simply contain armpits? If someone is to want to see an example of an armpit, an image of a tattooed woman or a ton of naked women, for example, is not helpful. An armpit is not bared breasts. 19:08, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Some are not only armpits but as long as we clearly see armpits it's OK to have them here. For instance this picture is OK. --TwoWings * to talk or not to talk... 19:23, 7 March 2008 (UTC)


As we have the category *Female armpits (subcat of *Female anatomy), shouldn't we have the matching category *Male armpits as well? Seems only logical (best not have a category *Childrens' armpits - I can already imagine the reaction on Fox News...). The question then arises whether the only files in the parent cat should be those images which include both male and female armpits? Or perhaps not. It does seem a bit ridiculous though to have a subcat for females but not for males as the result is that what you see in category *Armpits is just a load of (hairy) male armpits.

Having added the strays from the main category, I find we have 82 images for Female armpits (including the two subcats for those who might be offended to find that breasts are adjacent to armpits...), nearly twice as much as for Male. Why am I not surprised?! Anatiomaros (talk)

OK, Category:Male armpits created and populated. Now I wonder what I've started. Quite likely there are 1000s of images out there featuring armpits, so will we soon need *Male armpits in paintings, *Female armpits where the female is wearing a red dress and sunglasses etc? Ah well, I think I'll leave that to someone else :-) Anatiomaros (talk) 23:40, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
