    Happy Independence Day to all my American TB brethren. Be safe, all.

    So.... I finished a day shift and came home. Time to wash off the busy day and prepare for a drawn-back, at- the-house celebration with the GF, whose first date with yours truly was 2 years ago today.

    As I start brushing out my hair, she comes in, scoops up a pony tail of it, and suggests I let her give me a man-bun.

    Stop. No. Quit. ...hey!.....owww.

    Well, TBOT. She did it.

    Here's the rub. I don't mind it so much. I actually reaaaaally don't mind it so much. I think I might like it.

    Do I need help? Is there someone nearby who can make an emergency house call and punch me in the throat? IDK, TBOT.

  10. If I were built like Jason I'd wear a man-bun 18 hours/day & intimidade the Hell out of anyone who sneered at me for wearing it:


    Japanese warriors wore a Chonmage, to keep the hair out of their faces (for fighting):


    Gene Simmons was The Most popular member of KISS in Japan, because of his bun:

    She wants to run her fingers through your hair, and you are complaining???

    Go with it, and play with hers.

    You know what goes great with a bun? Eyeliner.

  13. I live in an area that's mostly over-zealous macho guys who would scowl at a man in a bun, unless he's the size of Jason Momoa.
    When I was young I went away & learned how to dress in things other than flannel. I got bullied almost immediately when I came home for a visit.
    Some guys at a gas-station were mouthing off with homophobic slurs, so I went back to dressing like an average rube when I was at home.

    Things have gotten a little better here, I see guys in pickup trucks that look Goth. That's weird, but hey at least it's better than before.
    However, there's still heaps of people around here who have high opinions of their own opinion & are very judgemental.

    Days like today I just stay indoors, because the zealots are out there on the roads & they're probably drunk!

    I think it was a year back some guys were actually sort of bullying me at a traffic-light.
    I'm not sure what it was about my appearance that bothered them, but it was obvious these two young-adults were trying to mock me!

    That's the kind of folks who live near me.

    I'm old enough to remember when ponytails were considered a bit racy. Go for it, I wish I still had the hair for it!
  16. I came up to a dude in the supermarket the other day, we both have long hair & were wearing band shirts. We just nodded & continued on our way.

    His read "Toxic Holocaust", so I looked them up when I got home, & I'm about to try one of their bass arrangements!

    I had nice mutual t-shirt appreciation experience at Target last weekend: his was Sabbath, mine Funkadelic. Made me smile for a bit of the afternoon :)

    I'm ok with not having one of those.
    If you dig it, go for it.

  20. It's your hair man, I'm not living the life I do to be a judgemental prick. If you like it, it's your head. Personally, I had long hair in high school and dealt with a few small-minded idiots. Eventually I cut my hair and I like it better on me, but life's too short to do stupid things for the approval of small-minded people.
