Locks of Love is a weird but admirable charity:
We meet a unique need for children throughout the United States by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses we provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers.
While I’m sure they help thousands of kids, I’m picturing a scenario here. What happens when the Nelson Muntz’s of the world discover that you’re wearing a wig? In the eyes of the school bully, aren’t you better off bald? After all, I can immediately think of a few bald icons–Michael Stipe, that guy on Smallville, Dr. Evil–but not many wig-wearers.
