Not cutting my hair

Postby steve on Thu Jan 04, 2018 3:31 pm

Started to feel weird that my longstanding preferred haircut, a short flat-top, had become emblematic of the recent rise in fascism and the rest of the Right, especially the younger, more repulsive Right, so I took a cue from FM tmidgett and stopped cutting my hair. Resolved to not cut it until Trump was out of office or we somehow otherwise crushed the Right.

It's a fucking disgrace now though, a shithouse Moe Howard. Like a hatless Gilligan.

I'd love to be able to cut it again but I still hate fascists. What should I do?

It's temporary. Wear a hat. Not a Gilligan hat though.

I'd say stick with it--it may grow past the awkward stage into something much better.

Last haircut I got was right before the 2016 election. Since then, that not-great haircut has alternated through "kinda weird; should cut it" into "hey, not embarrassing." So what I'm saying is that I'm manifesting my shoegaze nature, or that I'm just a dirty hippie or whatever.

Haha, I got called a Nazi a couple of times last year(as a joke) for having a buzz cut and it hadn't occured to me that maybe that's totally why I haven't cut my hair since.

Didn't help that I was wearing combat boots and totally probably looked like a white supremacist.

I find the thought of a longhaired Steve Albini endlessly fascinating.

Do not cut that shit.

Grow it out and play some shows. Noodle that Travis Bean.

Allowing Fashys this level of control over your life is the wrong approach. With that being said -YEAH- grow that shit out. I am curious as hell. Don't do it for this reason, though.

This has bummed me out for years. Ever since the Red Sox finally won the series I noticed douchebags wearing the same facial hair as me. I tried going without but I am happier with it. I finally decided fuck them, I was hair first, so I’m going to keep wearing a beard even if some lumberjack bros shouting white power are too. Fuck them and their bullshit but I’m not going to let it affect me to the point of changing my look, even if that look is now the mullet of facial hair.

Same goes for my fedoras.

If you decide it's worth it getting hair in your eyes and mouth, go for it. I couldn't commit to long hair for that reason, and also I got more grays than you.

Yeah, but remember that this right wing shitmagnet stopped cutting his hair too - and he's not alone.

A perm might be the only way to go.
