: Growing your hair out as a "f*** you" to a person, institution or society. Or to be a rebel of some sort is not a good reason to grow your hair out to me. In my opinion it promotes the stereotype of longhairs as being anti social. Then again it could just be a flimsy excuse for doing something you wanted to do all along. While maintaining one's machismo. And yes I ran into a longhair guy who said that's why he grew his hair out. I won't say where this was or the exact reason he gave for privacy reasons. This was what inspired me to write this post.
I have to disagree.
Any reason at all to grow you hair long is a good reason.
I would also mention that i was inspired by the Beatles to
grow my hair long. My mom was fine with it, my dad was out of the picture at the time (divorce).
Now I did get a lot of blowback from school authorities, and employers. So the more they complained the more I was
deterined to keep my hair long. I always wanted long hair and the more blowback I got the more I was determined to screw
authrority and keep my hair long. The more blowback i got the
more I opted to growing my hair out as a "f*** you" to a person, institution or society. Or to be a rebel of some sort is not a good reason to grow your hair out to me. For perspective look up
photos of the Beatles around 1964 and notice how short their hair was. Yet even with it being that short it was very controversial at the time.
