A new world
To the editor: Time after time these days, I pass a person on the street and at first glance, I can not tell if it is a man or a woman, boy or girl. It takes a moment of study to decide which. They all dress alike.

You could shave the head bald on some women and they would still be pretty and feminine. There are some women that should not cut their hair short because they would look to masculine. My advice to women is to confer with a loved one or a good friend, asking their opinion on how short they can wear their hair.

I see women in authority with short hair, wearing a white shirt, tie and a man’s suit coat. Do you suppose that makes them more effective in their jobs?

In my youth, all the athletes wore their hair very short. Even today, men in law enforcement wear their hair short because in a fight, long hair offers a good hand hold for the criminal.

Do the guys who wear their hair long believe they are attractive in the eyes of the gals? What would their grandfathers think? Would Arnold Schwarzenegger call them “girlie men?’

Hey, it’s a new world out there. Everyone should dress the way they want to and be comfortable.
