Long hair means you are selfish

A lady just told me I was selfish for having my hair long! She said I need to stop being selfish and have it cut off to give to people who don't have hair! I by no means think I am selfish or she is right, but another woman agreed with her! Now I am curious what others think.

I have long hair, its too my butt type of long. I usually always wear it up because I have worked with kids and in hospitals and having it up it just needed or required. I am on break from nursing school and decided to wear my hair down today and straighten my curls out.

This lady has no clue about me. I am a childhood cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with cancer and osteomyelitis at age 9 and spent several months in the hospital. I lost all of my hair. I won't even dye my hair because I have a fear of losing my hair again. Maybe I am just weird, but its a fear of mine. I have thought about shaving my head and donating my hair, but after some thought i am going to wait until I finish nursing school and readdress my thoughts. Others judge easily and I don't want to lose out on job opportunities because of a shaved or short hair while it grows out.

What a strange and rude thing for her to say. Having long hair isn't selfish.

Some women keep their hair long for religious reasons. Tell her its against your religion and walk away. Something about a woman's hair to be her crown of glory.

Weird. I don't think it is selfish one bit. Some people really love having long hair if anything it's lazy not to cut it [i hate going to the salon]

I have been growing out my hair for locks of love for a year now. When the baby is due I will have more than enough hair for me and some other child.

Um... ok. I couldn't donate my hair because its been dyed. But I guess that's probably selfish too.
