    Agreed. And, it is hardly abnormal to go bald (depending on your age). You don't see a 30+ year old bald man and think, "What a freak!". And, if you do, then you're just a poor, miserable, ugly shell of a person. Similarly, if a woman doesn't shave her armpits or legs, you don't think she is a total freak of nature, but probably a smelly hippy.

    It really blows my mind how much of their self-worth some of the guys on this forum invest in their hair. I'm all for putting up a fight, but some individuals just have not developed a real identity.

    Well we live in a society where hair is important.

    You can use this argument with anything else BTW, I am very sure, if society deemed my screwed up jaw to be attractive, it would have been. Irrespective on the medical condition behind it.

    And another point, there are tribes who disfigure themselves in africa.

    Yeah, but depending on how they look - you normally do think, he is unattactive if it doesnt suit them.

    Same goes for younger guys who bald.

    Wayne Rooney for example. He was only called Shrek after he started to go bald.

    We also live in a society where men who don't have hair are both normal and socially acceptable.

    False analogy.

    Disfigurement is, by definition, outside the norm. Hair loss is not.

    yeahyeahyeah, I saw a picture of your hair a while back and honest to God, if I saw you walking down the street I would never think you have a hair problem. Take advantage of your surgery, enjoy life and don't worry too much about your hair.

    Doesnt mean it looks good.

    Even before I started losing hair, I used to look at bald guys and think "I would hate to go bald like that" or "why doesn't he grow his hair out"
