I’m a straight white male about to start fall semester. I work 30 hours/week, going to be at school full time, president of my school’s powerlifting club, and being an editor on my school’s literary review journal. When I shave my head it’s one less thing to worry about, and makes transitions between school/the gym/my job much easier. I would normally do this without worrying, however on the podcast (I can’t remember the episode) where Austin and Patrick said something derisive about white guys with shaved heads, in regards to being in a corporate setting. Is shaving my head ok to do as a white person?
I understand the implication of neo-nazi skinheads, but also know that there are SHARPS (skinheads against racial prejudice), and lots of people in hardcore music that shave their heads.
My question is basically this: as a white guy, is it ok to shave my head? Or should I shy away from this hairstyle?
