    Or what about people who need heart or liver transplants through no fault of their own?

    In both of these situations, these people tend to waste away before they die in extremely physically painful situations.

    Or how about people born conjoined or "little" people. You think people treat you poorly or look down on you because you are balding. Think how these people are treated.

    I think it's good for us to try and seek solutions for our problem. It's good to vent occasionally and be upset. However, after all is said and done, we need to keep our ailments in perspective. I'd rather see the people I described above helped by science before people suffering from baldness because their ailments are much more severe than balding.
    I'd rather have gotten cancer and died fifty years ago instead of having lived all these years with hair loss. So speak for yourself.

I'm calling for hair loss to be more socially acceptable for women, I wish it would change. I feel like an ugly loser because of my thinning hair. and have a very low opinion of myself I cant and wont accept it---EVER. I wear wigs and hairpieces and its the only way I can feel ok about my appearance.
    Women have a perfect right to be repulsed by bald men. I don't blame women for not wanting to infect their children with bald genes by having a bald man as the father of their children.

    I agree with the above poster... that hair is very important to many people including myself and I would do everything in my power to keep it.

    New York is a wonderful city with its own charm. But there are also Las Vegas that can conquer you with its beauty and brightness! Las Vegas has casinos and different performance like https://thecolorpurpleshow.com/ where you can see the temper of people who live in this country and understand their inner world and their culture! Isn't it a wonder?

    The op is right. Put things in perspective. Hair should not define anybody's self worth. When you're balding/bald, do what you need to do and move on, but don't meditate on how "afflicted" you are - put that time and energy into good use and tackle the other aspects you can control (including hair replacement treatment). Personally, I'd rather be balding/bald but in great physical/emotional shape than have a full head of hair and overweight/sick/obsessed with keeping it and worrying all the time about it's appearance/having to take potentially life changing medication/not to mention the hefty financial investments. Seriously, other people don't put as much thought into your appearance as you do, as long as you maintain a good level of hygiene, from what I can tell. Lack of hair is NOT the end of the world if you don't want it to be.

    I am currently faced with a medical condition that might kill me. If I had a choice of miraculously having hair again or having my medical condition miraculously cured, I'd rather have hair again and take my chances. So speak for yourself. I'd rather die with hair on my head than live life bald for a hundred years.

    Sorry to hear about your medical condition. So do you have hair?
