Seriously lady?

In the never-ending story of women and men wanting to blur the distinctions between themselves, a men’s barber shop owner has agreed to pay a fine of 750 smackers for not cutting a woman’s hair in an all male exclusive shop.

Really lady? What possess you to even consider going there? Are you aware than men’s and women’s hair are different, and that it is not quite so easy to style your ‘do,’ as it is to use a number 2 clipper?

But once more, a ‘patron’s’ selfishness is on full display, and maybe the shop owner thought it much easier to pay the fine, and this may be convenient for the moment, but you have just opened yourself to more female clients, and by so doing will destroy the atmosphere that makes you different and attractive.

Maybe she liked the atmosphere that is masculine; maybe she liked the idea of a drink with a cut; but please, the sign reads:  ‘Mens haircuts.’  May as well allow cub scouts to trade their blue pants for the brownie dresses. Extreme? Hardly, for this is the end game of the no-difference-between-male-and-female-club.

But the comments in that article were hilarious. Give her a haircut she will remember, so that she and her friends will think twice about returning.  Seriously lady, were you sent by a group to stir trouble? The shop owner said he is not opposed to cutting women’s hair………..but not in THAT place as it is strictly for men.

What right-thinking woman would argue that a man could not demand a cut at an all female Shop? The liberal mind refuses to connect the dots of reality, and this is one more example of political correctness gone sideways.

But the barber pole. The quintessential symbol of a man’s place, and if you notice, is fast becoming a casualty of a trade gone south, where Vitalis is replaced with fashion.  Hey, nothing against a good cut, just sayin, and noticing the trend.

I could bring into the discussion ‘male and female created He them,’ and while most would understand, a few would cry ‘foul,’ or ‘irrelevant,’ or ‘womens rights,’ but then again, it would kind of make things quite easy, that men and women, male and female, are hmmm, let’s say, beautifully different.

But c’mon lady, pick a more worthy battle, because you have lost this one completely. Surely you must know there are thousands of places where you could get a unisex cut; this place is apparently not one of them. Accept it, get over it, and have a nice day.

  2. LOL! Now that is a good one, Colorstorm.

    Men and women really do deserve their own spaces, a few moments with their own gender. We’ve seen lots of this kind of thing, mostly coming from women who think men are having more fun or doing something exciting without us, or whatever, but it’s flipped around now too, so we now have transgendered men wanting access to the ladies locker rooms and bathrooms.

    This kind of thing has it’s roots in envy, this imaginary idea that the grass is always greener on the other side of the septic tank. So the men wanting to be women, the women wanting access to the secret, clandestine activities of a barber shop, are all based on this idea that the other gender has something better than we do, they we got dealt bad cards. That’s a sad way to live one’s life. It is far more joyous to embrace yourself and focus on the strengths you do have, than to walk around believing you got dealt the short end of the stick.

      Yeah, someone said as much recently:
      ‘Hey, down here in this sewer, I’ll be here 10 hours, can I get some help………..some lady help?’

      or, ‘it will take 11 hours underneath a truck, using the full tool box, to remove a rusted stripped bolt that a thousand horses could not budge, and where no hands have access. Any lady volunteers? You get bloody knuckles and a sore back as a reward.’

      or, ‘it will take 975,ooo stitches, taking 9 months to make this blanket, any male help here?’

      Hearing stuff like this busts my buttons ib22, for the utter denseness of some peoples kids………….

      • LOL! Not long ago a man, wrapped up to his elbow, reached into a septic tank to retrieve an elderly lady’s wedding ring. It was very sweet, but naturally before he did it he gave us all a hard time about who was going to help. Very funny…we all fled in different directions, “I’ll make you some coffee, I’ll make sure you have something to wash up with, I’ll just stand here and pour words of encouragement over you…”

        Some of us see these things very clearly, I remain baffled as to why some don’t.

        So in the end the man was a hero, and he certainly earned it, and yet there are those who would try to rob him of his moment in the sun. And ours too, because half the fun in life is having those kind of heroes to celebrate.

          Nice. And to him, the coffee and clean rags were just as rewarding as finding the gem.

          Perspective, and acceptance of differences, something that we need not fear.

          But your other thought needs highlighted: ‘the clandestine activity of the barber shop……..’ 😉 Yep, the place where men plot the demise of civilization……..and draw up prints to do away with women………

          And your transgender bathroom? ugh, and grrrr, no, make that a double grrrr.

          Some nice color you brought my way today, tkx neighbor 😉

          As for this post, this country was damned glad that Rosie the Riveter stepped up and took a man’s place during WW II without worrying about breaking a nail. In fact, the Rosies in this country may well have won the war for us.

      We are moving into a world that admits no difference between men and women. What kind of mind requires such a thing?

      The customer is always right, but our ability to render service is limited. Therefore, the barber could have done as you suggest. He could have smiled and admitted his limitations. He could have said he was only equipped to give a man a haircut. Then he could have asked any dear lady who insisted upon sitting in his barber chair man’s haircut she wanted.

      What would such a lady do then? She or our unelected bureaucrats could go to court and try to prove there is no difference between men and women. I suspect the good barber would have had dozens of lawyers competing to take up his cause and plenty of sympathetic clients streaming thru his doors. Instead, he got the publicity and none of the benefits. That’s a shame.

    Ridiculous events like this ColorStorm drive me absolutely batty and go on with such frequency it’s very tempting to just ignore them to preserve some sense of sanity I take them seriously though, some would say too much I’m sure, because underneath their surface lies something deeply rotten; a society that has swapped truth and principle for a false and very shallow comfort of appearing tolerant. True fear of a lawsuit was probably a big motivating factor too but still enough is enough.

    On a side note, we women have it pretty good at our own salons. I can get my hair done, a mini therapy session and plenty of banter with the ladies there while we all complain about the men in our lives. Why on earth would I want to go to anywhere else? 😉

  7. Oh this is the stuff that makes me nuts!!!!!
    You hit the nail on the head CS–
    selfishness—plain and simple.
    Who in the hell-0-dolly (I’d actually would let it rip but out of not wishing to be selfish, as this is not my blog, I don’t want to offend anyone with my primeval cursing over this latest tale of idiocy)
    I take my dad to a barber—number 2 clippers it is Arch with a scissor snip here and there—I on the other hand go to a stylist—she sees both men and woman. Other folks like my dad, just want a good old fashioned barber shop—I know not to go to the barber shop because I want more than clippers and a shave—most females get that–why would I go to a barber demanding something else?? Now if I’m a female who wants a buzz cut, then for heaven’s sake, go someplace willing to offer that. Don’t try and force someone not willing to do so. If a barber shop doesn’t want to cut my hair, I should reply with a big fat thank you—thank you for being honest that you’d probably screw up my hair as you are not a “stylist” per se of coiffeurs but more of a male head shaper—why would I insist on making someone do something that they don’t want to do nor are versed to do???—why push that envelope when I don’t have to??
    There are so many more big deals out there needing our utmost attention—can’t we as humankind please focus on say, the growing humanitarian crisis sweeping into Europe, the wellbeing of children–keeping them safe, healthy, feed, what of the homeless??? etc, etc, etc. . .May we put our energies in those directions rather then toward something stupid like making a guy’s only barber fork over his hard earned bucks for refusing to cut a gal’s hair—
    this is one of those stories that truly strikes at my ire—

    Interesting post and responses. I’m a bit confused though. If a woman wants to get her hair cut in a traditional barbers, wishing a traditional style that the barber is familiar with, why would she not be served? Hair is hair. I’ve shaved my hair off – a number 4, if I remember correctly – which a friend was kind enough to help me with. I would have been really angry if I’d chosen to go a barbers and been refused service, simply because I don’t have a penis. The pricing system in a barbers generally reflects the simplicity of the cut that men traditionally go for in our culture, and the time it takes to do that. I wouldn’t be happy to pay more.

      It’s not about the hair per se violet as I mentioned here:

      —The shop owner said he is not opposed to cutting women’s hair………..but not in THAT place as it is strictly for men.—

      It is the owners decision to keep the atmosphere he wishes: a place for men, period.
      It is irrelevant if she wanted her head shaved, it is a place for men. Why the heck does a ‘place for men’ trouble you… .
