: Thanks for the help with the first part of my research. Now I need one more favor. For my fellow long hairs that get grieved on for their long hair, I would like to know why you think people are like that to us. Is it because its "gay", or "girly", or some other reason? Most people I ask say it's gay or girly, but I want to know what the others around you think. So please, tell me why you think they treat us so poorly.
IMHO there are several reasons for this;
1. Too many parents come from an era where men had short hair.
The popular phrase was "you look like a girl." Never mind in 2017
many women have short hair. Very few women have traditional long hair, many have hair above the shoulders, and a number them have gone even shorter (buzz cut, etc.)
2. You do hear some say that you look gay with long hair, never mind that a number of gay men have short hair. Very few have long hair.
3. One of the big reasons for ragging on long haired men has to do with age. it's incredibly easy to jump all over young men about their long hair. But the thing is once you get older (45 in my case) the complaints stop,
