    Of course, a woman's hair is important to her

    heh

    man that's going to have repercussions. But I hear the fundamental of what you are saying. While many clamor for equality, some certainly are more than willing to take unequal laws and regulations which relieve some rules upon on class but not the other.

    He should have been arrested for a serious style fax paux! Or else he could have been put on the sting squad for male prostitution...

    I think they should let him keep the cornrows, at least some one will get a good laugh when he writes them a ticket.

    cops should keep their heads shaved like the military
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    Now I'm sure you're wanting to go "That's different, that's a kilt". Well, you're correct. Its a different thing, because in that society it is socially acceptable for men to wear skirts, aka kilts, and it not be "weird". Its a unisexual type of dress.

    Similarly...

    Cornrows are NOT like a guy wanting to wear a dress, because societally it is not considered odd or agaisnt the norm for a guy to wear that hair style any more than a female.

    As such, it is a distinct difference between rules for men and rules for women.

    Now me, personally, I have no issue with that. I actually do understand at times due to society there are gonig to be allowable variations to what is okay for varying types of people.

    However, I'm very interested to hear from many of our female contingent that always scream about mysogeny and inequality and everything else of the like. Are men and women meant to be equal? If so, do you agree that a female should get more lax rules regarding their hair style then men do? If you do believe that, how do you justify it to this notion of equality when in reality you're wanting superiority in some places of what women can do over men. Why are we allowing this seemingly "Seperate but equal" argument that its okay that he can't wear it because even though women can do it, men can't, so he's equal to all the other man. Is that not like saying "Its okay that gay people can not get married to each other, because straight people can't marry the same sex either. They are free to marry the opposite sex though, its okay" or "Its okay that the blacks can't go to the same school as the whites, because we're going to give the blacks schools, so he's still able to go to school so while he's seperate from the whites its okay because its equal".

    So for all those that are such strong proponents of womens rights and against mysogeny, what is your view on this seeming double standard (if it is the case its allowable simply for women and not for men) that women are allowed freer rules in regards to looks and appearance than their male counter part?
    I was thinking that cornrows are a hair style that both men and women wear, so the police department's rules should either allow or prohibit the style for ALL officers, men and women, and black or white (or any other race for that matter).

    I agree; it seems like a double standard if the rule allows it for women but not men.

    I also have seen some very attractive cornrows that look neat (literally), a lot neater than some birds' nests that I see on some peoples' heads.

    For both the men and the women? Wouldn't that make it hard to chase after criminals?

    Interestingly enough, those are banned by the same police department and had a case in 2007 about it.

    To me this cornrow thing is obviously racism. I' seeing reports where dozens of black male officers are allowed to have cornrows.

    I don't use the BS term "reverse racism", because racism doesn't have a preset direction.
