firstly who of you have long hair? and secondly do you find it attracts unwanted attention from gangs of chavs ,gangsta Asians (pakistani teenagers who are obsessed with rap and anything that will make them "gangsta") or your countries equivalent.
in england i find this a problem luckily im a fairly big guy but i was attacked by a group of "gangstas" for having long hair. i had just got off the bus coming home from college and was attacked sheerly for the fact i had long hair.
is this a problem for any of you?
#2
I'm sure you had just got beat up for long hair.... I am sure the "gangstas" yelled 'Hey, you have long hair, LETS GET HIM BOOOOOYZ!!"

And yes, I have long hair, but nobodies really cares.
#3
Not a problem for me.

Attacked? Only shouted out.

Had long hair until a week ago. Then I was forced to cut it. Even though I have short hair now, I am still one sexy devil.

And there's not too many chavs where I live, and they pretty much keep to themselves.

I used to have way long hair. It was so long I could put it in my belt loop if I tilted my head back. Eventually I just shaved my head and realized I looked like a tool with long hair. It was something I never realized until I cut it.

English people are weird, if they attack or get attacked for having long hair.

thats why its great to live in the U.S. because people only attack you for your skin color not for your hair length

Peeps I know don't like my hair long cuz my bangs cover my "sexy eyes and eyebrows". And I can't pull of parting my hair.
I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money.I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down.

I'm up in Scotland, used to have hair about shoulderlength and i got **** for it regurarly. things being shouted at me like 'Girl' or 'emo'. But im 6ft5 so normally thats as far as they get. I may get offended if they could think of something more creative than that.

I have long hair, about halfway down my back. I used to catch sh!t left and right because of it, but now, people love it. It was like a huge self esteem boost, too, because I've gotten far more girl attention than I ever did with short hair. It feels good to be considered attractive.

Not attacked, but shouted at. I will write in both Pavee and English.

"Ah bois, wood jew look at dat gott there wit da long hair, he's a frake!"

Meaning:

"Gentlemen, would you take a look at that chap with long hair over there? He does seem a bit odd"

But in all seriousness, that's all I get from them, aside from the occasional "Can I borrow a lighter" or a drive-by "Metallica!!!!" (The only band they know of)

I used to get asked if I liked *insert Metal band here* I answered, and they'd ask me if I liked any other music, I'd say yeah, and they'd say like Rap & Dance? And I'd reply a good bit of rap, but not too much dance..

Then they'd say I had a "dacent" taste in music and walk off...

My hair is pretty long, my hair is pretty curly, but when it is straight.. it is about almost half my back. I do get shouted at by some rough areas, but nothing really. I get the "Jesus" thing every now and again. A lot of people say they like it how it how it used to be about a year ago. I can headbang better with the longer hair though, and if I had straight hair my hair could go flying. That'd be awesome. :p

I love my long hair. If I get any unwanted attention then I haven't noticed it because people, at least where I come from, tend to avoid confrontation unless they're tryin to throw down, which really would be over something more pressing than "Hey, that guy's got long hair. Let's gettim!"
