Do you object to pink hair?

Petite Valentine Petite Valentine
In the last couple of weeks I've seen news reports about school children getting in trouble for dyeing their hair pink, ironically in support of family members with cancer. Here are links to the stories if you would like to read more:

I love pink hair, and I think that boys were willing to do it is amazing. I'm shocked that with epidemics of bullying, school violence and kids failing, officials felt the need to punish these kids for hair color choices.

Why of course not. I HAD pink hair!

You know, I was suspended from school at about 13 years old for longer than one month because I had pink highlighted hair! This was not to support a cause of course, but I know the feeling! Schools do not like to accept indiviuality, never have. They want every kid to look alike, dress nicely and never express themselves in a unique manner. Bascially, that is what I was told when I went to school with pink hair.

I wasn't even allowed on the school premises. Not to go to a dance, not to get my sister from school. But I walked in that school everyday and made them suspend me. Every single day for longer than a month. My mom wrote an article to the newspaper though, and after a long battle, they accepted me back. With My. Pink. Fucking. Hair! LOL.. So what I say is this: it's JUST HAIR. Get over it. It isn't hurting anybody, especially if it's for a cause. I hope there are other kids and parents that will keep fighting to schools when something as silly as hair color prevents them from getting an education.

Hair means nothing. It's color! Who cares about that? Do the teachers not use colorful art or posters in the classroom? Well, as the principle at my school when I was a 13 year old pink haired kid, "it's distracting to students." So, the color pink distracts students. I suppose that means a teacher should NOT be allowed to wear a pink top or have colorful posters in the classroom.

It's just something to bitch about. It irks me to death. Why does it matter if a kid chooses to go dye their hair any color?

I personally think that's crazy to ban someone from school because their hair color. Bet there's plenty of kids getting bullied, and those bullies? Rarely ever suspended.

It just makes me want to scream. These school boards need to be putting their priorities together. Worrying about the bigger issues than what color a kid dyes their hair!

Of course I'm not offended by pink hair - I've dyed it pink four or five times, if I could get away with it where I work it would always be hot pink. But no, I got in trouble at work for my hair being "too red" once.

I am not offended by pink hair at all, but I do understand that even stupid school rules have consequences if they're not followed. What do I think should have been done?

I think that the parents should have gone in and talked to the school BEFORE they died their kids hair and told them what was going on. Say that their child wants to dye their hair to support breast cancer awareness. There is VERY little chance that the school administrators would have told them to GTFO.

I really like that the boys are doing it, though!

I object to it for kids but I like some that adults have, as long as it isn't garish.

Doesn't bother me in the least. Pink, blue, purple, green - it's all good.

There's always something paradoxical about any place that will allow nail polish or makeup, but not an unnatural hair color. The common excuse with schools is that it's "distracting" to the other students. The real reason, which schools won't admit to, is that they're embarrassed about having students with pink hair.

I worked in a school and I used to go through different colors. I've even worked a government job and dyed my hair. They didn't like it but I still did it for myself. I don't think anything's wrong.

It's hair with a cause. Not that big of a deal, if it does not become a distraction to school/work.

Any girl (or woman) making a statement against breast cancer with a pink streak gets my support. However, if they would donate the money to research that they spend on the pink hair...well.....

That's idiotic. They should worry about more pertinent things, like drug abuse and unsafe sex.

This exactly.

I've got no issues with it, and it certainly would have been fine at the high school I went to. However, I can't say these kids or their parents should have been surprised about the reaction they received if they blatantly broke their documented school dress codes. I mean, really, schools are cracking down hard on the most insignificant rules these days.

If they wanted to do something against dress code (or any school rule), the kids (and/or their parents) should have had a conversation with the principal beforehand. Get permission first, don't get suspended later.

I agree with most points raised here! However, do remember that you're not really getting an accurate representation of the public's opinion on this question since you're getting answers from a very selected group. (As in, people who have accounts on a website that sells sex toys are probably more open-minded to body modifications and thereby have nothing against pink hair.)

There shouldn't be any type of suspension for having a hair color a different way. What if someone decided to get pink contacts? Are they going to suspend them for that too? I say suspend those kids who really ARE troublesome than someone who just has a great style and loves color.

My hair has been every color of the rainbow. I think it's pretty and if it has meaning (pink for breast cancer awareness) then it's even better. I don't understand why people get offended by these silly things when there so many other things more important.

I don't object in the least. Especially if it's as a show of support for a family member with cancer. Honestly, I think that's touching and thoughtful. It speaks well of the kids that are willing to do it despite the possibility of bullying.

No, for something like this, I think it's ignorant for children to be getting in trouble. Around here they dye a thick strand or get an extension or clip put in their hair.

I've never really had much issue with hair color choice but it was never a really big issue with my folks. There are very few times that I really think oddly colored hair makes much of a difference. Personally, I would prefer a more sedate highlight job rather than the look of candy colored pink hair...then again I have very dark hair that is pretty damaged already so dying it pink would really cause it to hate me for a long time! I don't care what color other people choose, and if parents are ok with letting their kids dye their hair what right does a school have to say different? I think schools are too damn invasive with their dress codes and arbitrary decisions anyhow. That's the age kids SHOULD be trying out weird hair styles and colors.

Awww that's amazing! I can't imagine most guys NOT supporting keeping breasts healthy. For goodness sake even if you don't personally care for breasts you have a mother, sister, best friend, Aunt, or Grandmother, right? What a cool way of showing support!
