Severe haircuts

Started this discussion. Last reply by Chuck Knight Apr 27, 2015. 49 Replies

Short military-style haircuts seem to be particularly popular right now, and they do look good on a lot of guys, but there are some of us like our hair to be not just short, but somewhat severe.  I,…Continue

Tonight, I was chatting with one of my favorite barbers, and he keeps trying to convince me to shave my head in the spring.  Claims I'll love it...and it's at least possible that he's right,…Continue

wow some men do not know when they are being mean on here

I am not here to pick a fight, but I will not just stand there and be talked to like that.   It is not for others to tell me who is being mean to me.  If I felt hurt I felt hurt.   A lot of men were telling others how to do what to do and if their feelings were valid.   They also do not see the value in the softer side a being male.  It will take some time to understand the men who seemed rude and mean, but I do not need help seeing if someone is saying something hurtful.    I choose not to be like that it is my choice.  Reaching out is good.  Making fun of others is not okay.  I know there are people of all kinds here.  It is okay.  I have the right to be myself just like anyone.  Just because some people do not care for the way I am does not call for the way I was treated on the comment tread.  I was told the men were not mad by someone well it sure did not seem it was out of love.  I like what I see here and will continue to comment on things, but will not be told what to do or how to do something.  Or listen to other tell me who and what I am or who I can support or not.  I am a strong man of integrity who cares about people.   There are better ways to use words to help other, and tearing people down is not the way.  A comment about being a teen or crying as weak, well that is one way to see men.   Being kind and loving is also part of being a man.   I have not use for mean comments.

I am trying not to respond back with mean comments.  Many people would see the comments made in that thread as mean.

Even you told some of them to lay off.  I thank you for that.  I really like the site and think it is good.  Thanks for all the nice things you said.  Sometimes people cannot see the forest through the trees.

HI Just got here like a week ago.  I do not need you to add me but just wanted to understand more what is going on.

I wish I did not say anything and never saw the post.

I am hearing things from one side and the other about the men in the comments.

And in reference to my inconsistency-well I've been there to back up other gay men and women in my lifetime when they needed it.  Sorry to say, sometimes their trauma made it impossible at the time to accept any help-they just wanted the scene to blow over...

At 4:48pm on March 8, 2014, Walter B. Pewen said…


Sorry you feel I disappointed you in your reading that I was sort of not following my own political beliefs. 

Also, maybe please reference my further comments re guys who take on serious manual jobs and 'flamers' so to speak.  It might reference to you where I'm coming from about being out on the job and in particular workplaces that are to say the least, real homophobic.
