I'm tired of people assuming I'm a gangster or skinhead nazi.. Does anyone else have these feelings? Maybe if I had a more mature hairline it wouldn't be such an issue.. It is undectable though. I'll give it that.

How many people could have asked you if you were a nazi?

Let people think what they want. When you try to control what others think of you, you will needlessly suffer. Just laugh it off and say "yeah i just initiated yesterday"  its no big deal

I am old enough to remember when a shaved head was only worn by men of a right wing persuasion and men in uniform. But that was a very long time ago. Surprised to read people are still making that association. I don think, in general, that people do. I'd like to hear more, is this just one loudmouth at the office? Or an idiot brother in law?

You wouldn't happen to have a Charlie Chaplin style moustache, would you?

Is this really something that has been regularly happening to you?! In 7 years of rocking SMP(living in LA 2 of those years)- I've had all of one skinhead comment (which was in Fort Lauderdale). I quelled it by telling the person that I've kept my head shaved pretty much since getting out of the Navy (which is the truth).

Usually that is the stigma/assumption when new people ask about my shaved head- that I'm current or former military. Fortunately I am so it's an easy "out" for me. All but that one time though, no one has ever assumed that I was a skinhead or gang member. Strange that you are getting that.

I've been shaving my head for 25 years. Never got a called a Nazi, gangster, skinhead, etc. It's a non-issue.

I've been shaving my head for 20 years (11 years using a razor), and during my younger days I've been called baldy or a buddha.  Nowadays, at best people would mistaken me for a cop as i'm also somewhat jacked.  

 

I"m also surprised that someone would call you that, but then again really, why should you care? Don't let it bother you man.

I see what you mean, DavidMcArthur.

Maybe not stigmatized as a Nazi or a gangster, but definitely labelled as a flat-earther. It’s a fact that shaved heads are completely out of fashion and no longer really popular.

I noticed three things in the area where I live (Europe): people are staring at my shaved head (with SMP AND a mature hairline) more often than a couple of years ago, shaved to the bone heads became drastically fewer and even «Norwoods-7» are letting their hair grow longer.

My perception is, that it has changed from «WOW! Cool! Looks great and fits you!» to «Ugh! Looks bizarre and inappropriate! Why don’t you let your hair grow!»

Anyway, still happy to have given a frame to my face.

It's been socially acceptable for years. Maybe if you wear combat boots and have a pet bulldog you might get funny comments. But these days just about everyone who isn't a purple-haired communist vegan activist is called a "Nazi" so it doesn't mean anything anymore.  

 

Your overall image dictates how people will perceive you anyway. Having smart facial hair and wearing fitted clothes will make your SMP look classy whereas if you dress like a chav you might give the wrong impression.
