Why men should not fear balding...
« on: December 21, 2006, 03:24:32 PM »
I recently wrote an article on Helium.com titled "Why Men Should Not Fear Balding."  You can read the article here: http://www.helium.com/tm/100895

I'd be interested in your thoughts and comments on the article.

Very good Tyler!

The one point (that you make several times) that really stands out is how with the proliferation of mass media, a naturally occuring fact of life became something to be shunned.  Now, bald men are embracing their baldness and trying to shed the stereotype that bald is a bad thing!

Great job Tyler... you get the gold star for today!

Excellent article Tyler.  I think we all feared balding at one time, especially when we were younger.  Does anyone say "Yes!  I am losing my hair and going bald!!"?  Few, if any, I suspect.  We come to accept it, beat nature to the punch, then laugh in her face!

Awesome article, Tyler.  Drove that one straight to the end zone!  How long did it take them to approve it?  I got a few pending approval.

I enjoyed reading that, very well written. I agree that media portrayal has a lot to do with it - there was a time not so long ago when being bald was portrayed in the media as a subset of geek (and not in a good way). Now, as you say, there are big A-listers and clearly successful bald men who blow away the myth. I see more and more bald young men when I travel to work, and when I arrive for that matter - I'm one of them of course!

You can see the depth of attitude that we are standing against when the other post on why not to fear balding by Mary Jones says that those who retain their hair are "lucky" - she's supposedly taking a pro-bald position!
