Fashion Question


Disclaimer: I know nothing about fashion. I shop at one store. I wear basically the same 3 things every day of the week. But, on to my point...

I realize that a lot of, well, let's call them "idiots" before I say something inappropriate or offensive, form their hair into a greasy Mohawk of sorts. I'm not sure the reason for this. Perhaps they are not committed enough to shave their head minus one strip down the middle. Perhaps it has something to do with the emo movement (I just learned that one. Also, is it a movement? I don't really care, but I am somewhat curious).

What's the deal with that hair style? These people look terrible.

I wonder if when black people (African American, sorry) shave their heads (a la Von Wafer [ one of maybe 4 to 6 Houston Rockets who cannot be categorized as geldings]) and leave a strip down the middle its called a blackhawk?

This is not a good look, people. It really grinds my gears.

I had a feux-hawk this past summer. I shaved it before a softball game, everybody loved it (ie laughed at it), so I kept it for a couple months.

To be honest, the ladies loved it. They actually spoke to me instead of immediately throwing up when I'm around.

Dude, why'd you have to post a picture of an Asian guy. I'm going to take offense.

I'm also going to have to disagree with Jubei. I don't want to talk to you if you have a feux-hawk. Feux-hawk = tool. Exhibit A: The moron on Texas Tech with a full mohawk. See http://www.flickr.com/photos/traveller2020/2889107872/

Sorry Jubei, I'm not calling you out. It may also have to do with my hatred of TT.

Also, I don't know if it has anything to do with the emo movement. All I know is that, I better be the "emo" one.

As far as I can tell the Emo movement really just entails toeing the line of androgeny and drawing attention to the slender hips and thighs of a man in tight black jeans...faux-hawks are just enlarged pubic hair landing-strips made more visible to the general public in order to denote douche-bags, dicks, and pussies
