Alexander Skarsgård shaved a NW7 for an upcoming movie role. For 8% of sufferers, that is in the mirror everyday. And when they say they are openly loathed and ridiculed, it becomes hard to dismiss as oversensitivity when examples like this—the opportunity to shame someone's baldness— arrive and people take delight in saying how they really feel about it. Forget twitter hot takes, here are legit headlines from: GQ, Esquire, Elle, LA Times, etc... Try as I might to find a similar sarcastic, snarky write up on a newly bald female celebrity, I find instead either neutrality or empowerment: Can you imagine the cries of misogyny if a headline read: Charlize Theron is too beautiful for this look. Imagine how much worse if she had a patchy "style" because she was a character with Alopecia areata. Here's Huffpo challenging societies unfair dictations with a brave and bold declaration, and then shitting on Skarsgard with an article linking to twitter comments. TLDR: Some people actually think male pattern baldness is a style. If you have it, you are open for mockery. If you care about it, you are open for mockery. If you try to fix it, mockery. IMPACT.
