For?  Against?  Undecided?

I had a discussion about rats tails with DH and he is curious about EB's opinion biggrin.gif

On rats they look great.

(But on humans they are not my taste, but I am assuming my hair is not of everyones taste... so it all balances).

Against.

However, my baby girl has one. Where most babies usually develop a bald spot, she's always had a extra long bit ph34r.gif

I admit to putting on my mcjudgey hat when I see the males of our species sporting a rats tail.   It ramps up a notch if it's bleached.

I judge kids with them and their parents.

Horrible, and yes, I do judge the parents of the kids with the rats tails, especially when the child is not old enough to let them know what sort of hair style (is it a style??) they want.

Glad I am not the only one to use the "b" word laughing2.gif One of the few things I would ever classify as bogan...

Horrible. I do judge people who have them, as much as i shouldnt.

I think its because i have never seen one that looked stylish or suited the person who was sporting it.

They are like mullets. Never should have come into being.

Awful, they just look untidy.  I don't know why anybody would want their head to look like a rat's backside!

urggh, horrible!

I work at a school that has a policy against unnatural hair colour but no policy against rats tails.  I would rather reverse the policies  LOL

I hate them and always wish I had a pair of scissors with me when I see one. Not that I'd use them if I did, obviously. But I can imagine that I would.

Golly, what kind of rats tail was it? Bead encrusted? I've only ever seen them long and reasonably clean, therefore soft, fluffy hair, which I wouldn't think could hurt someone?

No.

No.

Not even if it was from a 'top salon' and cost you $4gazillion to get put there and GQ is now using you on the cover.

No.

And I come from a position of true authority - having sported quite the wondrous specimen on my own bonce in 1984.

At the time I KNEW how fabulous I looked, alas I was wrong, very, very, very, very, wrong...

I completely agree and they should be judged for growing them in the first place yyes.gif

They are terrible. I judge the owner/ parents as a complete feral. I also judge the hairdresser that does it or allows it as well. Same goes for tracks on a small child. Bogan at its best.

#22 blackbird

at 1st I used to think not my thing but what ever until I saw it, yuck! and they usually include a shaved head which is also not nice

a kid in my youngst's kindy, just recently had a brutal messing mohawk thing cut into his hair, the kid actual looked very sad and this was also a kid my son adores and I have seen his mother outside of kindy at a function, my son just stood there and stared, very awkward sad.gif

I judge the parents.

Rats tails are bogan at best.

One of my nephews has a rats tail and the other has a full on mullet. I want to grab the scissors every time I see them.
