In Praise of Not Knowing Everything.

In our daily lives and interactions, Mr. M and I have been noticing more and more men choosing to shave their heads. This trend makes us wonder if this is how the tradition of women shaving their armpits began. First, it was only for a few rebels, and then more and more people started doing it, and now it is almost required of a woman that she shave her armpits. Will it eventually become the norm for all grown men to shave their heads and remain bare headed for the rest of their mortal lives? I know these thoughts are hard to wrap your heads around, but I think you will find a full exploration of this subject fruitful. You could always just look on Google to find the origins of where hair should and shouldn't be depending on your sex, but what's the fun in that? I'd rather use my imagination, and just keep the question in the back of my mind.

I really hope this doesn't become the norm. There are many guys out there who should NOT shave their heads under any circumstance but brain surgery. And I really hope men don't start shaving THEIR armpits... that would just be strange.
