Summer Do Dilemma

In Love with my Locks writes:

I get compliments on my hair all the time. Its summer now, and I’d really like to buzz it off and enjoy the warm weather with day hikes, trips to the beach, bike rides and swims without the muss and fuss of styling my gorgeous hair. But I’d hate to deprive the masses of enjoying such unique and utter beauty. What should I do?

My response:

Keep the do all year round and continue to receive glory and praise or risk a change and find out what people truly think of you. What a predicament...

You should definitely NOT mess with a good thing!

Is it possible that you receive so many compliments on your hair style because it is your one and only true beauty, your one saving grace, your singular feature that brings anything of value to your ethos? I could be wrong.

But I could be right! What if you give in to the wiles of summer and change your look. What will your loved ones truly see when they are no longer starstruck by your mane? The luster of what they believed to be your essence will dissipate before their very eyes and you will find yourself friendless, brainless, helpless and hopeless.

I believe the best thing to do in your situation is to stick with the one thing you've got going for you and start investing early in hair-loss remedies--just to stay on the safe side.

Girlfriend Drama for your Mama

The Gay and Narrow writes:

I'm a gay guy and have been all my life. I'm so gay that I have a pink sparkle cell phone named Cher. But lately I've been having "bed time" thoughts about... dare I say it...girls. YIKES!! What's wrong with me? Does this mean I'm turning straight? Do I need to come out of the closet with my straight thoughts? Am I going to hell for thinking these things?

My Response:

I'd say that most people go through an "experimental phase" and it's possible that you're just a late bloomer. I wouldn't worry about it too much. But if you're still uncomfortable with these unnatural thoughts then try to boost your confidence with activities and hobbies that you've always felt comfortable with and enjoy; take Cher out on a playdate with her sparkly girlfriends, have spontaneous dance parties in the living room with the cat, grab your best girlfriends and head to WeHo for the day.

I'm sure in time that you'll feel right as rain and this whole "straight" business will be something you'll get a good laugh over for years to come!
