On the contrary, ignorance is curable. For example, you can learn not to jump to conclusions.

Chronic foot-in-mouth disease, I think. You can get a cure for that.
It is like assuming redneck means racist.
Look up the frigging definition. Then the history if necessary for you.
I think the look works for some and not for others. Also, when I hear the term "skinhead" I also associate it with neo-nazis. The term was floating around my local community back in the 90's.
Plug in electric clippers with a plastic attachment of the "number 2" size, works on the beard too. Just long enough to avoid looking skinhead. Can be done by feel - don't even need a mirror.
The importance of my hair to me is that it not get in the way - physically, sociologically, financially.
Linguistic note: skinheads in the US are a subset of the bald and the shaved, the military and the boxing ring and the workhouse, etc. If they aren't white, male, blue-collar, anger-fueled, pack-running chip-shouldered brown-shirt wanna-bes, they aren't skinheads - you just need another name.
This guy is not a skinhead: http://bigbadbaldbastard.blogspot.com
Neither is this guy:
Sounds lovely. Lucky you.
I've lost nearly all mine. I blame it on too much walking around the riverside with a sculling boat balanced on my head.
I'm not even Mormon but I still thank you for you're fight against Canadian criminals.
You have lost me entirely.....not for the first time.....
And of course it's up to the individual to decide what works for him. There are a lot of looks that I don't like - hats on backwards, pants around the knees, tattoos, piercings.
And you stating your likes or dislikes does not imply people do not have the right to do that or any connotations.
If you have non-white skin you can shave your head bald. If you are white, please live a little stubble or you will scare the kids. Thank you. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!

I used to have long curly hair and people would always comment on it, some would even touch it (which really, was just weird). Then I lost it all due to numerous rounds of chemo.. Well, when it started to fall out, we shaved it off. And I missed my hair so much, I became somewhat obsessed with it. I had a wig, but hated wearing it, so I wore a scarf or a hat.
And when it was all over, after I had lost it again and again, before it could even grow back properly, I went into remission.
Then it grew back and was long and curly again, not as curly as before, as chemo will often change the texture and colour of hair and for me, and not as long as before (it used to be down to my waist and had brown back to mid way down my back - my hair grows faster now too, which was weird at first).
And I suddenly found myself hating it long, could barely look at it. So I had it all cut off, and now it is short. Very, very short. I don't think I can ever go back to long hair again.
I think that person died when it fell out the first time and I pined for who that person was. But I am different now, rounding out of where I had been through, and the long hair was not me anymore. Now, the moment I can feel my hair touching the back of my neck (about every month or so because it grows stupidly fast), I have to get it cut, because I cannot stand it anymore.
It is strange, that I used to have such long hair and pined for it when it was gone and now just the thought of it growing long enough to touch my neck, gives me a headache.
