I agree, she looked beautiful. I much prefered her bald. Imagine how great it would be in terms of time wasted, money etc if we were all bald. Though I supose it would be taken up by sun screen, or if you live in Northern Europe; hats.
Maybe wigs are the answer. Shove one on your head and get hubbing, fabulous, Always hated my hair anyway. But I'm told they make your head hot. Still it would cut down on heating costs. Wigs it is then.
I'm with Mark - you must be shallow. How the hell do you know that she wasn't a cancer patient? Did you ask her?
That was me about a year ago. I did not like the way I looked bald, but I couldn't stand to wear a wig and sometimes went out in public without a head cover when I was going through chemo for breast cancer.
How DARE you .... you know, I'm not even going to justify you with any further insults!!!!!!!!!!
Why are you so angry ??? as I said on my posts. Family members had cancer and they died. They were happy people until the end, and laughed at their baldness all the time. We see things differently. Maybe because we don't feel guilt. We don't believe in God.
Your view is distorted for you are only noticing the outward looks and appearances, which are at best superficial so I guess you are a very superficial person. It is time you looked at yourself "Vanity Vanity thy name is woman." Start looking at the person inside for a change and you will see someone more beautiful than you have ever see before. Maybe that woman has cancer and has been taking kemo-therapy?
I cannot believe you had the shallow mindedness to start this thread. Chances are she is a cancer SURVIVOR. After several surgeries, loss of body parts, health, maybe even her career to stay alive...and you are revolted she lost her hair??? Chemo laid me out so bad I wanted to just die. This woman is walking around and she revolted you? You revolt me. Holly
Do you think cancer is fashionable? Ever will be? We didn't sign up for it you know.

Even if she were bald on purpose, it's quite common for friends and family members of a cancer patient to shave their heads as well. I know I shaved my head when my aunt started losing her hair. It wasn't an aesthetic thing, it was a way to show her that we supported her and we loved her no matter how much hair she had or didn't have.
But, because of people who constantly judge others by how they look, I took to wearing a stocking hat in public, even in the summer.

Saw these people every day for years, I knew them pretty well, just not well enough to go into personal details about the health of family members. Also, because of my mental illnesses, I dislike being stared at so it was just a lot easier for me.
yucky on purpose...hideous, they know what they did. bald due to illness, sure, they might look hideous and that would be an accurate word, but an ill person who is suffering deserves just a smidgeon of tolerance and udnerstanding.
no joke, two days ago I was taking a bath, and thinking, I love my hair. Its reddish brownish blonde and curly/wavy goes to just about my waist. (Im not really a manly looking carrot) I sort of felt vain thinking about how much I like my own hair. But really, my hair is nice and I work at keeping it nice.
I would be so sad if something happend to make it fall out. I think any woman who looses hair due to illnes, its insult to injury and I think it would be godawful to make fun of her. BUT if she did it on purpose and it looks yucky, you should be allowed to say so.
true.. on purpose we can call it hideous but if its illness or an accident then well we just tell 'em they look nice even if they don't hahaha
I think the only time I remember having short hair is when I stuck gum on my hair.. I was chewing gum and fell asleep and the gum ended up all tangled in my hair.. I did everything I could to prevent cutting but eventually I did. I cried for two months before it grew back again
I went bald once because of lice. I have 3 kids with a lot of hair and I also have a lot of hair. But because I didn't have anyone to help me and do my hair when the horrible lice hit and i was already doing my two daughters, I made the choice to shave my head to simplify the problem. It wasn't beautiful but my hubby actually found it sexy.
I love long hair. I have a thing for it. But if you were perfect for me in every other way I would not kick you out of my bed. Besides, you can always buy wigs for times when you don't want to be bald.
I like long beautiful hair on a woman, but short hair is nice too, and bald wouldn't bother me either, what's most important is a beautiful smile and bright eyes and that look that says, I'm glad you're mine!
I think we shouldn't give them odd looks. It suits some people - like Sinead O'Connor. She chose to be bald. However, 9 times out of 10, it's due to an illness. Some people wear wigs, some choose to be brave and leave it bald. (because that's what the illness did).
Example: Gail Porter below (famous in UK)
Gail Porter after her illness:
So, in my Humble opinion – we should just leave them be. See the beauty within.
I don't know what Mamelody would reply, but I can't care less if soemeone think I'm ugly. There's a lot of thinks in my life that are beautiful. Someone like you could never visualise them, because you can only see your 'Godly' reality.
My nasty comment? I had hoped she would realize she may one day be in the bald womans shoes. My being a christian has nothing to do with being horrified and this lack of maturity or compassion. Her mental menturity is very questionable from her original post. Obviously not all hubbers are adult enough to not make fun of an unfortunate situation. If she was your mom, sister or friend - would you laugh and joke and gasp? Probably huh. Holly
'We are all adults. Can't we see when one is only joking and when one is being serious ? If you don't like the topic ,there are a lot of other threads where to post.
we can be stupid sometimes if we choose to. Do you have any problem with that ?'
If you can't have a laugh or don't like the topic move to another thread. this is the sandpit. It's like abreak LOL There have been cancer in my family as well. some died. but they laughed until the end, even of their baldness. We have another way of seeing life. We're not serious Christians.
"If you don't like the topic - stay off the thread." Plain enough for you tantrum? There are others I won't bother to point out. And Back off by the way - you have hounded my posts and previously called me names in the forums. It makes you look like a juvenile. I am disabled from advanced cancer and I am mostly housebound - got a joke for that? Holly
Just because it's the sandpit doesn't give her a license to be a superficial b**ch. What she is saying is insulting and only shows that she is not a goof person, sandpit or no sandpit! YOU relax, tantrum!
I am here because I, too, have the right to my opinion and I am here to voice my opinion for all the bald women who may cross your path. I am here because I was bald from cancer and I probably looked hideous but it was part of a process to save my life and i dealt with it and thankfully never crossed your ugly path.
But this is not a thread about cancer. It was only about a bald woman. Once my daughter shaved her head and everybody said nasty things to her on the street. So ? we laughed at the pettiness. LOL Have your break please. Nobody's attacking you !!!
You have probably gathered from reactions that those who have suffered from cancer are still sensitive about how they were and are perceived by strangers while they were going through their treatments.
The OP was commenting about one woman in particular. She never said bald women where ugly. Just only that one! and please, don't tell me none of you have never laughed at somenone once in your lifetime !! Geezzzz !!
Well I don't laugh either, but I don't see anything wrong if one want's to do it. In the end, nobody's laughing at someone ! Just at the idea of an anonymous bald woman, who it seems was very ugly and of course nobody's laughing at cancer patients
But don't you get it? You never know when you make fun of someone's appearance whether or not they are suffering from a disease. She might have had cancer, she might not have. She might have had alopecia, she might not have. She might have just chosen to shave her head. It's not up to you to judge how other people are allowed to look.
You asked what people think, and we are telling you. Sorry we didn't all agree with you.
"It's better to remain silent and be thought of a fool than to speak up and remove all doubt." I'm sorry to say, but Mamelody you have removed all doubt to most posters here that you, my pretty, are a fool.
This is what you said, is it not? - "don't know about you but I find a woman without hair completely revolting.. yuk!" Sounds like a generalization, not just a comment about one woman.
Laughing about a hairless woman in a pharmacy is far from nice. Cancer survivors are tougher than you realize, and have no problem standing up for what is decent and right. If you are banking on good looks to carry you for life - you may find out looks are temporal. That core beauty is what matters.
You are very right. I'm ashamed that I got roped into this madness. I have always thought that the bs that goes on in these forums (like in the religion and political ones) is ridiculous and completely unnecessary. I have only participated in the forums thus far to ask question or gain technical information mostly - this is definitely my first forum "drama." I guess I'm a little touchy about certain topics.
When I praise my dog, she hangs her head. More praise, the lower her head goes. what is she sayingShe seems happy and to understand she is being praised, but her head goes way down. Is this a doggy way of saying "Thanks"?
Now that the comment box has gone even from the original hubpage when you publish, maybe put a like or something on it so that people know when it has been read? It just seems so impersonal now. I want my friends back commenting! (sob dramatics! lol!) What do you think? Any other suggestions?
