Two High Court judges ruled that people regarded their hair as their "crowning glory" and could be "intrinsic" to their identity.My understanding from the brief spot on PM is that this sets a precedent, your hair is now part of your person legally, and anyone who cuts it off without your consent is guilty of an assault, right?
Bloody right too. Number of people that "joke" about cutting my hair off, really gets to me, my choice to wear my hair long is a source of humour, a woman's choice to wear it short goes unmentioned. Why? Nice to see that my (mostly) neatly kept hair is now actually considered part of me and the law will now recognise it.
Serious issue? No, but if I can tell people to piss off when they effectively propose ABH and cite this case, then I'm happy.
Off out now, not that anyone cares, but light blogging this evening from me.
