    Default Tidbits to the women-with-gray-hair debate

    If you have the time, here is a plethora of articles on it, some of which are (in my opinion) just full of it...

    There's some really offensive stuff in some of these articles.

    Honestly, if someone is going to look old--and I don't mean old as an insult, I mean old as a descriptor that is unconnected to beauty--then one will look old. And it won't have anything to do with her hair. Optical allusions only work so well-assuming they work at all.

    I agree, and also, there is not one thing wrong with aging, we all do it every day. I'd rather eat nails than be 21 again, and I don't intend to look a day younger than I am. The obsession with youth is just bizarre to me.

    I found the articles as offensive to women with short hair as those with long: offensive to women generally.
