From the classroom, to the Universe

The Moon, The Bald and The Ugly.

Its been a while since I took a good look at the moon, while resting and enjoying the lunacy inducing object, something spherical slipped into my head. I started pondering why is that schools doesn’t allow a semi bald (shaved) head? It is something my belief-system couldn’t logically accept but I implement as part of my duty and the irony is, I do wear the same haircut.

Being bald, most of the time associated with evil. As depicted in movies, comics and etc., most of the villain and anti hero are bald. And according to top 100 villain of all time of AFI, Dr. Lecter which is a balding cannibal psychiatrist (Silence of the Lamb) gains the top spot and a quick google on top comic villain includes Ming the Merciless and Lex Luthor were present on the list. Who would of course forget recent movie villain like Voldemort, ooops! He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, Nizam of Prince of Persia and the list goes on.

Locally, anyone within my generation knows “Anak ni Baby Ama” as portrayed by Robin Padilla which is undeniably an icon of anti-heroes. So wearing a bald head can give you a nick name “Baby Ama! Baby Ama!”. Talk about stereotypes eh?! Ever hear of the street saying “Kalbo masamang tao” (bald people are bad)? Guess what, top ten evil men wears a decent hair cut! HA!

So what else is in store for us shaved headed (or bald, intended or naturally) people?

In reality, being bald has its advantages over those suave so full of hair heads, and here are some it:

1. ECONOMY. Imagine how much shampoo will you save? You are free from using hair gels, polishers and wax which prices are not safe from fluctuations on the global stock market!

2. IT KEEPS YOU FROM GETTING LATE. While the rest of the students are sculpting their heads, you could just quickly put your uniform after taking a bath a viola! Your good to go and avoid the rush!

3. GIVES YOU MORE FOCUS ON STUDIES. While others are busy checking hair styles re-combing and reapplying wax, you could just sit back, relax, read more, and listen well to lectures since you won’t be so conscious if your hair is still neat and in place. You’ll be in honors list in no time! 😀

I do not have against so called “proper” haircuts or anything nor want to argue bout school policies, it’s just that we could focus more on things beyond the superficial hair styles but focus whats inside which would really show the true decency in them.

My two cents.

For the mean while, I’ll have to enjoy gazing at the moon!
