Repo Man: Cloudchaser Sakonige the Red Wolf: Cloudchaser Sakonige the Red Wolf: Why, exactly, are some guys (and some women) bothered so much by being bald instead of being happy with they way they rae?

rae = are

Are you also mystified by why people get cosmetic surgery? Does it confuse you when surveys find that physical qualities such as height, or being muscular, or being pretty actual enhance the quality of life for people who possess those qualities when compared to people who are short, overweight, and/or not pretty?

That's only because of how society tends to be toward people who are not what's considered to be "attractive," considering what they look like on the outside as a factor in liking or disliking them.

Xena certainly made a statement about baldness.  On that show, all the good guys had full heads of thick luxurious hair.

The bad guys were pretty much all bald.  Occassionally you'd see a bad guy that wasn't bald.  But apparently, during the Xena era good guys never suffered from male pattern baldness.

Quantum Apostrophe: AbbeySomeone: I don't understand why people are hung up on baldness. Some men are much sexier without hair.


It's a choice thing. I find many women to be sexier with smaller boobs, but you get the choice of getting implants. Women get the choice of being able to lose weight, or wear makeup, or perfume, or sexy clothes.

All we get is height (can't choose), money (it's more about luck and personality-type), muscles (which we have to work for on top of our jobs), hair (which some of us lose at 19.)

I want to be able to choose if I lose my hair or not.

And I don't give a damn what you find sexy or not.

I'd like to be bald without the 5:00 shadow of shaving, how does this choice thing work?
I am sincerely surprised there isn't equal advances in hair removal for places where men and women don't want hair.  I looked into laser hair removal for my neck below the beard, but it's expensive and you have to keep going back every few weeks... so it continues to require maintenance.
