: How many people get "you need to get a haircut": "be a man"; "you would look better with short hair" "do you want to be a woman?" and other stupid inconsiderate phrases.
: How often do members get such comments, and have they ever drove you to just give up and get it cut?
I cannot speak for everyone, but I can't think of anyone ever confronting me with such a comment. Long hair on men has been trendy lately and is seen much more frequently than years ago. I also think that old stigmas are dying off, and people are more prone to 'live and let live.'
Maybe it's my age (young 30s), my career (liberal arts), or where I live (large MidWestern city)... but I have only heard positive comments about my hair. Co-workers have mentioned they wish they had my thickness. Someone asked if I'd be insulted that she called my hair beautiful (of course I wasn't...) I'm sure someone, somewhere, thinks I should get it cut, but they've were polite enough to not confront me about it.
