Well, considering testosterone is what causes hair loss, I'd say thats a fair assumption.

Mugato: Eh, you have to be ripped or black to pull off the shaved head. If I did it, I'd look like a cancer patient.



Im white, though I can pass for Mexican too, and Ive pulled it off quite easily forever. The only thing that sucks about it is being confused for a either a white supremacist or a gangster, I've been "hit up" a couple times before by the Mexican gangsters over the years (I'm from the planet Earth assholes!) which can turn into violent confrontations.

Pablo Escobar and Ron Jeremy are your examples of superior males.

Can you pick a balding man that has actually HAD authority ?

Pick a culture, pick 3 leaders that had authority, count how many are bald.

Perhaps more dominant in the ring, but in real life? They're just bald. That makes them inferior to me, a real man with hair.

Pretending that is was a style choice over nature taking its course.

Larry: With all due respect, Officer Berg, you are not bald. You've chosen to shave your hair and that's a look you're cultivating in order to look fashionable, but we don't really consider you part of the bald community... with all due respect
 
2012-10-01 03:15:39 PM  
To my male, balding friends:

Estrogen grows the hair, testosterone tells it where to grow.

Balding = losing estrogen = becoming more manly.

DNRTFA, but this b.s. worked every time I told it to a baldy.

No paying for haircuts.
No buying combs, brushes, shampoo or conditioner.
No waking up and having to shower to fix your hair.
No worrying about your hair being messed up in pictures.
Pretty much a win all around.

Well it is a style choice. One of the few someone that is balding can actually make. It's a comb over or tattoos otherwise. Few people aside from the diseased actually lose all of their hair.

That's like saying to someone that cuts and combs their hair that they're just pretending, because their hair doesn't grow like that.

not to condemn the whole world, but the half a dozen people I know who shaved their heads have all been phony-bolognas.

/ just let the chips/hair follicles fall. dress appropriately for your circumstances and comb your hair, if you have any. trying any harder makes you look like you're trying real hard. shaving that much real estate is trying real hard in my book.

I shaved my head for 10 years and - to a certain extent - I will vouch for TFH (didn't bother to RTFA).

Not only was I finding plenty of sexual gratification during my Days of Baldness, but I discovered that people automatically gave me a wide berth when walking on the sidewalk (I like to think this was because I presented a boldly intimidating front and not, instead, because I reeked), and people were much more quick to notice and to listen to me when I wanted/needed it.

Today, the reverse of all those things is true. I am a sad, lonesome man who lacks confidence, appears weak, and blends with the crowd. But I am planning to go out dressed as Mr. Heisenberg for Halloween, so maybe the baldness will bring back the chicks, the respect, and the attention I crave!

And eggrolls is right - smiling is certainly rarer under the bald pate.

True enough if you are naturally bald. Most men are not naturally fully bald; it's actually kind of rare. So they must shave their heads on a daily basis. No thanks.

i started losing the battle with my hair line when i was still in high school... so, when i was in my mid-twenties, I bit the bullet and shaved it all off. (it was shoulder length when I lopped it all off)

2012-10-01 03:23:16 PM  
Apparently, you have to look good unshaved as well. I shaved my head for years, and never got any attention from the ladies.

Of course, it could be because of my lack of self-confidence.

Not so, I had to shave my head every other day. If I don't I begin to look like Aqualung going for the interview.
I used more shaving cream in six months than I did in three years.
And then there's the perspiration otherwise known as "That Nasty Glistening on you Noggin, Bro"
Some will deal with it some won't - I'll be bald eventually I suppose. It's okay, I had hair down to my belt so, I'm good with it.
I don't care for Dave Barry's sense of humor but one day he pointed out that bald white guys look like giant thumbs. I don't know about you but I did so, I let my comb over come back.

Besides everyone at work thought I was going through chemo and never asked about it. Bunch of idiots

It is probably important to mention that while smiling is in fact out of the question, you are still allowed to be in D'aww inducing pictures.

How is shaving your head "trying too hard"? It is just a style choice, just like my neighbor likes his flattop, or my coworkers rocking the "trendy" Mexican doos. Your post is pretty foolish. I imagine youd be the old fogey telling all the kids in the 60s their hair is way too long. Also, as the first couple posts in this thread are evidence of, lots of girls find shaved heads attractive.

Try not too look like Im trying too hard for the old fogeys, or look good for the opposite sex... Clear winner here.
 
2012-10-01 03:29:50 PM  
I have great hair and going bald would suck bigtime especially since I look so young.

That being said, if I went bald I would work out harder than I do now, grow a badass beard and probably tattoo my arms. You have to roll with the punches here.

Similar issue. I have a full head of hair, but mine started getting streaks of grey when I was 17. By the time I was 30, it was salt and pepper. By the time I was 35, it was pure silver. I'm glad it went silver instead of gray, but alas, I used to have wavy/curly hair. That went away when it went gray. The only down side (or up side, depending on the ego check) has been that young store clerks and waiters have been giving me a senior citizens discount for some years. Women, who seem more sensitive about gray hair don't do this. In fact, they seem to like gray haired younger men.
