Earth goddess, X-men Leader, Morlock champion, rebel punk, and master thief......but we all know what really matters.

Re: In Character, Out of Character
Hahahaha, they don't? THEY DON'T? Hahaha. Oh man, you must not know very many metalheads or punkers. Or ARMA members. It happens ALL THE FUCKING TIME with us. Almost exclusively the domain of older (40+) white women too. I swear if it weren't illegal, I would've genocided all the geriatric whiteys in the NE and midwest areas of the US. Well that and it would take an assload of time to do even if it were.

Ah well, I can content myself with the fact their social security is dwindling, and their medicaid is drying up. Eat my ass, boomers.
And as mentioned elsewhere in this thread by someone else, never had this happen in Europe anywhere. (then again guys with long hair are a lot more common and accepted there, while over here there's some sinister Puritan/corporate wackiness at work) Honestly I think because in their own lives it was so rare they've developed a nervous tic about it and can't resist. At least you can say something snide back. I have to put up with it because "it's unmanly to complain about something so petty." If I don't hide it under a big Texan hat they all come running (more like sidling/waddling) up cooing and awwing over it, wanting to play with it like I'm one of their fucking dollies.

Ya think Götz von Berlichingen put up with this? Saxo Grammaticus? Hermann von Salza? Jacques de Molay? Fuck no! But back then smacking the shit out of annoying/idiotic people wasn't illegal and wouldn't cost you your job. (or the ability to find a new one in my case) Now even basic discipline is illegal, and so you wind up with Bawbwa Walters and Rosie O'.

Actually, most of my male friends have long hair and/or large/interesting facial hair, and they get very few comments about their hair in specific and their grooming/dressing in general.

Re: In Character, Out of Character
That's pretty odd. I guess it's a regional thang. I used to get it a bunch in the burbs around Detroit and Bridgeport, Connecticut. Redneck & surfer area people don't do that though.
