to do with it.
: A bit of trivia for your files...the first time short hair ever became a :widespread fashion among American males was immediately following World :War I. The moral of Samson's story is clear; when Samson was shorn of his :hair, he was shorn of his self-identity
Sorry hon, but I'm sure there's MANY ways to perceive what the 'moral' of said story is. Its been a while since I read the book, but I'm leaning towards thinking that the last thing that story was about was hair.
:just as men who enter the army are stripped of their personal dignity, :pride, independance and everything that makes them men.
Sorry, but if you shave my head...it doesn't take away what little manhood I do possess. I was led to believe that the head shaving of army lads was a means to bring all the new recruits down to the same level. It could also be viewed as a rebirth that negates the past 18+ years of their existence.
:The modern American male has been sold this G.Q. image of a short-haired :sharp American Psycho-type playa on the scene with every hair groomed and :moussed; a vain, narcissistic shallow type of quasi-femininity bespeaking :the loss of true masculine identity.
Uh, the guy I saw in AP had longish hair. You seem to be thinking of the 80's male, cause a grungier look seems to be 'in' these days. Guys that have every hair 'groomed and moussed' have a certain George Michael gayness about them.
:Short hair is for soldiers & boys. Pimpdaddies can let their hair hang :down; they don't need to be vain 'cause they know they got game.
and soldiers don't equal men? And that second sentence just landed you a reserved seat on DJ Andy's lap of funkymonkeylove.
: Hair is manly!
Take a look at my buttocks. You'll be changing your statement faster than Kelley changes lust interests.
: However, while chicks may dig rubbin' the buzzcut for giggles, they don't :want to run their fingers through it...give me any other reason for the :continued existence in our culture of the thing known as Fabio.
Overweight housewives? Check out the romance section of a bookstore sometime and take notice of the broads that peruse the area, tis quite sad indeed.
:It's an ancient, archetypal thing. Hair is power & sexuality.
You really gotta drop this 'Kevin, don't change a thing about you, you're perfect!'-schtick.
:There's a fine pregnant lady standing next to the hairy dude in that :picture. Coincidence? You may think so, but I know what I know.
Yeah, it has nothing to do with the guys personality, talent,...I don't think I need to go on.
