    Sorry, that was a little harsh of me. But the whole shaving of ones head in support of cancer goes back to breast cancer. Men of all ages shave their heads, often for vanity, and isn't really a big deal. But women undergoing chemo tend to loose their hair which adds insult to injury. When the trend started it was healthy women who chose to shave their hair in support of loved ones. Those are truly the brave and caring.

     




     



    jed,

    Thanks for that. His heart may have been in the right place but he just does not get it like you do. 

    I cannot imagine anyone in this life who has not gone thru breast cancer with a loved one. As for we women, the saying goes 12% of women get breast cancer...100% of women worry about getting breast cancer.

    George H.W. Bush Shaves Head to Show Support for Young Cancer Patient

     

     



    MO,

    I did say his heart was probably in the right place. However there is a difference between men and women in this area.

    If I do it, I am shaving off shoulder length hair which is part of my feminitity. If my husband shaves his head, though he has a full head of hair he keeps it very short. His shaving it off does not reduce his masculinity at all. If we walked down the street, people would think not much about my husband but would surely stare at my bald head.

    It is just not the same. And for a lot of men, they have already lost a lot of their hair to nature. It is even less of a big deal. In some cases it is an improvement.

    Sister,

    You are right. He is a decent guy. And none of this was about politics. It was about cancer, an equal opportunity disease. 

    And if not one more loved one in my life gets cancer, any type of cancer, it will still be one too many. 

    There is no disease that has ripped thru my life like cancer has. So yes, I appreciate what Bush Sr. did. Drawing a distinction does not lessen that appreciation.

    the title coulda fooled me.... send your donation to a poor kid with cancer who doesn't get special attention and funding from elitist war criminals. send your donations to the kids who don't get their picture taken and put into a news article. this kid has it better than most.

    I am not a fan of Bush 41 politically, but he seems to come across a lot better than Bush 43 did. Anyway I was touched by the expression of support for the little boy with cancer.

    Certainly it is much less of a decision for a guy to shave his head than it is for a woman. MUCH less. But it is still a great gesture on the part of the sky-diving old fart.
