-well on the title IX thing and new court ruling the 2 have nothing at all to do with one another.
the ruling was specifically stating that dreadlocks were changeable so therefore not accepted as guaranteed when using the racial or cultural argument. title IX ever mentions race nor culture, only religion and spirituality which are guaranteed rights in the bill of rights. freedom of religious expression. any court ruling to the contrary would be defended by the aclu and would have to be thrown out, overturned or taken to the supreme court, where it would be overturned as unconstitutional.
the ruling was specific as well to 1 companies policies that required racial neutral dress. which yes i find offensive and unethical, its like requiring women to not wear skirts earrings makeup in fact..bras, anything that identified them as female (and vice versa for men, gender neutral dress codes)
ok back on the dread beard topic my 1st set i had a fu Manchu that was loooong well not long compared to now but as far as fu manchus go it was longer then average. after that i had just a moustache awhile (ack my damn parents posted a photo on my fb wall from back then..i don't recognize that person as me, or even anyone i ever knew!!) anyways then i let the fu Manchu start to row out again before letting the rest so had 2 parts that were 3 inches or so longer then the rest.
those are the ones i stuck some beads in early on that dreaded 1t then grew maybe 4-6 more.. but they eventually congod or got lost from sitting on them so im back to just 2
even when there were 6 or so though..what work are yiu referring to that's so much trouble? washing?
its no trouble no work .. theres a number on here with beard dreads theres a couple with dozens of them and they aren't any problem at all
27 years growing dreadlocks the natural way
