This comment is the key:

>All women know that men prefer long hair over short, so when a woman does get a short haircut, she is essentially giving the middle finger to men. In response, nothing short of a middle finger back at her will do.

For the sake of discussion, what can be said about guys that grow their hair long enough to look like a woman?

It's not that short hair "looks like a man" so simply reversing the gender doesn't make it parallel. The issue is that long hair is attractive to men because it signals fertility, so cutting it is saying, "screw you, you can't know this about me. Deal with it." I don't think that men have the power to make political statements to or about women with their appearance.

Males signal status (a proxy for resources), not fertility. So, something that might be parallel would be a male announcing that he will never get married. Or a male announcing that he will only marry with a prenup.

Imagine an article on feministing titled, "men who wont get married are damaged."

ROK is churning out some awesome articles lately.

Back in ye olde blue pill days of yesteryear, an article like this would have had me all a'flutter. A correlation between hair length and mental health? Preposterous! Inconceivable!

And then I got a little bit wiser to the ways of the world, and, dagnabbit, I'll be darned if my life experiences didn't echo this very belief. All short hair women I've ever had the pleasure or displeasure of knowing were, inexplicably, damaged goods by an order of magnitude when compared to those with longer locks! While that is most certainly an anecdotal recollection and I know of no formal study on the matter, I can see where from Mr. Tuthmosis is coming. Beneath the veneer of RoK-style trolling is some real unpleasant truth for lovers of the overly-shorn she.

People who argue that short hair can look good on women are missing the point completely.

As always, Tuthmosis putting into words what I was already thinking!

That's completely asinine. Some chicks genuinely do look better with short hair. Hell, the A-line haircut is one of the best looks a chick can have.

The only girl I have known that looks better with short hair is an anorexic girl who most most likely due to nutritional deficiencies is unable to grow her hair long enough that can look healthy at the same time.

Edit: Forgot to add my grandma. She looks better with short hair.

Why not just cut to the chase and date little boys?

Well, little boys have penises, for one. You're one of those weirdos who likes pubes on a woman too because you equate shaved genitals with fucking children, aren't you?

Even if you had a short hair fetish, this article does demonstrate quite clearly that women know most men prefer long hair. Cutting of the hair really is a middle finger to male preference. I would say it's embracing flaws to be more selective, in the same way that women brag about being narcissistic on their dating profiles.

Anyway, either way you look at it, you're basically telling us you have a preference for chicks who are likely to be more aggressive and less pleasant.

For the sake of argument, let's say that you don't like penises, so you don't want to date little boys. Why would you risk this by undressing people who look like little boys?

Excuse me, before we being, are you hiding any penises? Can't tell since you look like a boy and I'm into this kind of thing.. http://i.imgur.com/09B4nEY.jpg

Well shit, my mistake. Let's all defer to your decades of extremely wide and varied experience across multiple continents, because you're clearly the expert here.

As a wise man once said: "Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion, man."

Short hair can look good on chicks with tight bodies. If it's not your thing, then it's just not your thing. Example: http://i.imgur.com/7ZMFG.jpg

She's attractive (albeit less so) in spite of her short hair, not because of it.

I've come to the conclusion that short haired chicks might be more "attractive" (read: attainable) to betas/omegas by way of gender role switching. The truth - that if a man had his preference, long hair would be preferred - may give way to the signals of what a desperate man may find achievable. Butch women end up with feminine men, feminine men know this, short hair is shorthand for this, QED.

Exactly. They rationalize the short hair as "no big deal" because they're so enamored with the rest of the package. It screams thirsty low value man with low standards.

Maybe it's just me. I see her as attractive because of her hot little dancer body and her cute face, and the hair is just decoration. She gives me a "come and get it" look, I'm not going to tell her to come back after her hair grows out in six months.

You're missing the point. No one is going to kick her out of bed because she has short hair, but I wouldn't date her unless she grew it out. She's purposely lowering her attractiveness whether she realizes or not. This is not a subjective preference. Women with short hair are objectively less attractive than if they had long hair, even if they are still bangable with short hair.

If you had to choose between identical twins, one was her, and the other was her with long hair?

Sure, she looks good (because of her body), but she'd look 100x better with long hair spilling over those boobies.

nope. Yah she is still pretty, but the hair is a hurdle to jump over, and i assume shes probably pretty abrasive as well.

Edit: obviously, if she came a knockin, i'd let her in. But if she were surrounded by women further down on the scale but who had longer hair, id likely go after them instead.

I agree with it being a possible red flag for an attitude that a boyfriend/husband isn't entitled to the best of her beauty. And I agree that girls who look good with short hair are likely to look good with any hair.

But I think some women do look beautiful with short hair that's styled to suit their face. For example, this haircut scene in Roman Holiday turned Audrey Hepburn from a pretty enough actress, if a bit skinny and gawky, into the Audrey Hepburn that the world knew and loved.

But the best of both worlds is long hair that's pinned up to be short during the day and is let down when she chooses to let her hair down.
