There has been a story going around about a woman who shaved her head for a charity event and subsequently lost her job. Lost her job. For charity.
I was taken aback by this story. I thought surely in this day and age - what with the numerous piercings, tattoos, mullets and such - no one would lose their job for something as simple as a haircut.
The woman was asked to wear a wig to cover her shame. Either wear a wig, or move on. Now comes the question - would a guy have been asked to wear a wig?
My brother used to shave his head on a regular basis. He looked terrifying and could have easily been mistaken for a skin head. He didn't lose his job. I wonder if I had done the same thing, even at the same place, if I would not have been asked to do something to deal with it.
