    Thanks for the support. But, um, actually, no. I don't think it's just superficial vanity.

    Look, while many men don't like being bald they don't have their masculinity torn away by it. We as a society are used to seeing bald-headed men. They don't get gawked at. Nobody says they look feminine. Bald-headed women still get stared at. And it does affect how they are perceived. Consider how Kim's mustache has been mocked here. Many women have them but hide them because they are considered masculine.

    Bierboy, I'm thrilled that your wife won the battle and that she managed to get through the chemo and hair loss with her dignity intact. But I'll bet that given her drothers she'd rather have achieved all that WITHOUT losing her hair if possible.

    Or, perhaps she realized that in the grand scheme of things, hair is pretty low on the list?

    But did she shave her head before cancer?

    Because you people are acting as if it's not an important physical characteristic?

    Who is to say what is important to whom? If she does it for $20K, is she just after money? That seems just as superficial?
