Both of those options are very plausible either way.

Sorry, for disappearing. Reddit needed my attention.

for whatever reason, there's a degree of embarrassment. even a lot of adult females would feel embarrassed about being totally bald. being visibly different. so people shave their heads as support so they don't feel out of place or weird. it's a sign of solidarity and support and i'd imagine it means a lot to them.

Once again, it's meaningless. The kid is possibly dying, and those kids shaving their heads won't change that.

They would look just as good donating to a foundation.


For the same reason that someone will donate $10 to some charity rather than actually doing something that will make an actual difference (IE donating their time for a cause). Some people donate to charity to feel good about themselves/convince others that they're decent. Those same people are likely to shave their head because they know someone with cancer.

Why do they need to shave their heads to show their support? I don't gain a shit ton of weight to show anorexic people that there's people that really are overweight.

Yeah, because his friends couldn't have been supportive without shaving their hair off? I dunno about you, but I can do that fairly well if I have to.

Meh, it probably wasn't the best way to put that, but you get the general idea that I was getting at.

See if you knew a kid who was losing his hair to cancer, and you knew that a few people were shaving their heads to make him feel better about it, and you knew for a fact that he looked up to you and would really appreciate the gesture - would you shave your head?


I'm sure that they are, but I was answering to what someone said about people shaving their heads to make themselves look better. Or, I guess as it was put before, cashing in on their friend's cancer.

I would be too busy looking down on the child for looking up to me to begin with.


Seriously though, I don't think I would. I would show the kid support in ways that actually mean something (taking the kid to a baseball game if I had the money, or things that will make him/her enjoy the time they have left [if it's terminal that applies more, but you know what I mean]). My point is that you don't have to do something like that when you can take better actions towards making your friend/young child that looks up to you feel better than some empty gesture like shaving your head.

TL;DR: I would basically try to treat the kid/person like anyone else that I knew (and actually liked) that was fighting a serious disease.

You seem to be ignoring the fact that the gesture does in fact give some emotional support to cancer sufferers, focusing only on the idea that some people are just doing it to look cool (and bald people rarely look cool, else there would be no point in the gesture).


I would rather take the time to make whatever time the person's life as enjoyable as possible than take part in a meaningless gesture.

Yes, and giving emotional support to cancer sufferers also gives them support (wow, that was the stupidest way to possibly say what I was trying to say. ). That's not the only idea that I'm focusing on at all. It actually wasn't even brought up by me until someone else brought it up. Of course all of the people aren't like that (the ones that are are probably in the minority, or at least I hope they are). My entire point is that it's meaningless to do it when there's other things you can do rather than just shaving your head.

Edit: It doesn't even necessarily mean baseball, but I just used that as an example. Taking the person on a trip to someplace that they always wanted to go, taking them to see their favorite band, going skydiving, etc all fall into what I was getting at. It's much more meaningful than shaving your head.
