Really? You must have a very sensitive stomach if anything this minute' makes you sick. Tell me that you have never seen or heard about a certain man, running for the highest office in the land, and his hair.

 

 I have seen zoomed in shots of men's heads, with their gray hair/balding spots, along with talking about their hairline and diminishing amount of hair on their heads. Mostly those that put themselves in the public spot lights.

 

Hey! When you become a public figure, in any field, you are pretty much open to whatever type of pictures or video a photographer or videographer can sell to a company and/or an individual. That is the price you pay for getting/wanting fame and the lots of $$$ that usually accompany it.

But his hair has been the butt of jokes because it's bizarre, not because it shows him as "aging". 

 

Women really are supposed to stay young looking in order to be considered attractive, and men just aren't.  It's just how it is.

However, maybe women who refuse to buy into this will eventually change this perception.

 

I have no idea why Demi's gray was "zoomed in on" and what the publication meant by doing it.  Maybe it was to just show a confident woman who is NOT buying into the perception that women are no longer attractive is they are aging and graying.

Totally pathetic!!

 

 


You make it sound like having gray/silver hair is a bad thing.  Well, it isn't.

 

it makes you sick and it's sickening?

 

You just insulted millions of confident women who have gray hair.


I didn't take it that way at all.... I understood the OP to state that had it been a man having streaks of gray in his hair the article would never have been written but because it's a famous woman getting older and letting her hair go gray that there are photos and comments and so forth.....  That the emphasis on getting older is ALWAYS placed on a woman (and in a negative way) and a man merely gets "distinguished"..... and that fact makes the OP sick.... that's what I took from the OP.....

Maybe because she has had so much plastic surgery and enhancements to her appearance it was a surprise that she allowed her gray to show. Frankly, I think it isn't a big deal but it does seem like a different Demi. Good for her for embracing who she is and what she wants to look like. When it comes to gray hair, it is a personal decision.

Any one else see and appreciate the irony in this statement?


 

 

I know.   Again, I could start the thread over again and say they don't focus on a man's hands or forehead, it's the same darn thing.   The stereotype holds on in this society.

Well.....we have four options for aging hair.....darken it, lighten it, go au natural, or shave it off....no biggie.

I was 100% white/silver haired  by age 40.  I quit coloring three years ago when I retired. I am 60 now and love not having to color or worry about roots.  It is a personal decision. There is no right or wrong.

If you read the article, it's actually more or less complementary... To me, nothing to get juiced about or to interpret it as a further waging of the battle of the sexes...
