Is it odd to have hair all over your body? is there any way to get rid of it permanently without laser hair removal?

We are mammals.: By definition mammals have hair all over their bodies. This is not odd, it is normal. The hair helps us live and developed by evolutionary selection. It serves many beneficial purposes and permanent removal would be unpleasant and potentially bad for you.
