I polled a group of my friends on Friday at dinner and the general response was, "You can totally pull it off! Your head is so well-shaped for that, but..." And then, four separate people - a straight man, a gay man, and two straight women - told me that if I cut off all my hair men would be intimidated and not ask me out. Not because it would be unattractive, but because being with a girl who was liberated enough to essentially shave her head would not be appealing to them. WTF?! I know there is probably only one straight man reading this blog (if that), but really?! Is this really true? Can men really not handle dating a woman who doesn't have hair? I would've understood if the answer was "No, you'll look like shit or you'll look like a man" and that's why dudes wouldn't want to holler, but because it's intimidating?! Really?! Fuck life.
Someone else suggested that it could be a good weeding out mechanism, which makes sense, but I honestly like to believe that men wouldn't be emasculated by the choices I make with my hair. That seems so silly to me and makes me angry. Anyway, I just wanted to rant about something, so there you go. If there are any straight men out there who care to comment, please do. It would be much appreciated.
