At first glance, an article titled Half of men in UAE willing to give up longer life for more hair: Study might seem like something to be laughed at or dismissed, but it speaks volumes about the male condition, specifically the propensity for men to be so starved and desperate for female attention that they will go as far as to take actions that will almost surely cut into their own life expectancy and quality of life to get it.
These actions are of course, actions that females suffering from female pattern baldness would never take, at least not in these numbers. What causes male pattern baldness and various forms of it, alopecia and the like is still not fully understood well enough to begin reversing the process toward a male pattern baldness cure, but it is very clear that as long as male pattern baldness exists, many men suffering from it will internalize it as lack of virility in the eyes of the opposite sex, they will then fret and create a vicious cycle of anxiety, all over something as meaningless as a few missing hairs. The article states the following:
A recent Hair Loss Incidence Study conducted by YouGov in UAE inferred that almost 67 per cent men and women in UAE suffer from hair loss.
The survey, for which more than 1,100 UAE men and women responded, brought up interesting insights on the incidence of hair loss problems. It was conducted on behalf of on behalf of Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo.
Among one of the striking results of the study, more than half of men affected by hair loss (55 per cent) said that they would be willing to shorten their lifespan to regain lost hair.
According to the survey, just over 4 in 10 men suffering from hair loss are willing to give up to a year of their lives to regain lost hair or prevent baldness, even as a minority (5 per cent) is willing to give up more than 5 years of the or lives.
In response to the question ‘How much time of your life you would be willing to shorten to regain lost hair or to ensure that you will not go bald?’, 13 per cent of the 590 male respondents (77 respondents) said they were willing to shorten their lives by three years or more while another 42 per cent (248 respondents) were willing to trade 1 year or less of their lives for a head full of hair.
That’s because, as the UAE survey revealed, a majority of polled men (56 per cent) said that hair loss impacted their social lives, especially in the case of those men with acute hair loss problems.
More than 5 out of 10 UAE men said hair loss leads to psychological and social issues.
Further, almost 35 per cent of men suffer from various levels of depression/anxiety symptoms and are anxious to rectify this problem.
The survey found out that almost every second man under the age of 30 in UAE suffers from hair loss in various proportions.
The male respondents perceived hair loss among the top two physical concerns, which indicates the extent of mental impact of this condition on men.
“Hair loss can alter the way a man looks and makes him look older too. Men in UAE put strong emphasis on their physical appearance, and hair loss therefore causes great problems for most men in UAE,” says Dr. Hanieh Erdmann, German Board Certified Dermatologist and Hair Restoration Surgeon, located in Dubai.
Frequently more men affected by hair loss also suffer psychosocially. “Self-doubt, difficulties in socialising and embarrassment are just some of the consequences of hair loss,” the physician added.
It’s pretty stunning isn’t it? that these men must understand that they get only one life on this earth (and probably nothing after that) and they’re willing to trade in precious years of that singular shot at existence to look more acceptable to the opposite sex… remember this the next time some feminist is complaining about how women are forced into this or that beauty standard, the message is clear, if men can’t impress the opposite sex, they will then start to feel as though life is not worth living, and something so trivial as male pattern baldness can start triggering that downward spiral of depression, it is a potent force that can make a man trade in a few years worth of air in his lungs, that potent force is pussy… the golden uterus, and the divine feminine that most men seem incapable of not worshipping.
