Re: “BYU-Idaho Bans 'Man Buns' On Campus

Any of you idiots ever been to boarding school? They have rules too you have to follow including hair regulation for boys. Just because there are rules and standards doesn't make them wrong. Read the article without the word Mormon.

Re: “Anti-Vaxx to the Max

Accusations of corporatism? Check.
Shilling for 'big pharma?' Check.
Grandi? Check.
Hitler? Check.
Claims of lying and/or bullying? Check.
Vaccination = rape? Check.

It's pseudoscience bingo!

Seriously, I'm convinced that vaccines are a victim of their own success - they work so well that we forgot how bad the diseases they prevent are.

Re: “BYU-Idaho Bans 'Man Buns' On Campus

The point isn't that the LDS church thinks man buns are evil. It's something way simpler than that. There is a scripture that says "by small and simple things, great things are brought to pass." Obeying the rules of the honor code are not to enslave and brainwash, it's to teach them how to obey the commandments of God. There is a trend that those who aren't able to follow the simple rules of the honor code and complain about it also typically have the same attitude towards Gods commandments. Complaining and hating them when they are really there to liberate you. It's easy for me to see how the honor code has changed my life for the better. But don't think that the LDS church is proclaiming man buns a sin or anything like that, that's just naively searching for a way to bring hatred into this small issue

Why apply so much criticism to a topic you do not fully understand? BYUI is an LDS Church run university where principals of professionalism and cleanliness meet to help students prepare for a successful career in their chosen field.

Re: “BYU-Idaho Bans 'Man Buns' On Campus

The man bun is just ridiculous looking. And don't get me started with that stupid top knot. The people saying "didn't Jesus have long hair?" Are probably the same people who would say he was a middle eastern, possibly black, etc so shut up with your hypocrisy. The man bun has to go

Pretty sure they're banning them because they are ugly. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ stop arguing over religion and come to terms with it. Stop the buns guys you look fugly. The end.

Just to clear up some confusion some people seem to be having -- Jesus did not attend BYU.

Re: “BYU-Idaho Bans 'Man Buns' On Campus

Seems like the regulations are a bit on the sexist side. The rule should apply to both males and females or to no one at all. Of course I'd be thrilled just to have enough hair to put in a bun or a ponytail! hahaha :D

Re: “BYU-Idaho Bans 'Man Buns' On Campus

Just so all of you know, this is part of the BYUI dress code. Its not like the LDS church banned it. At BYUI they strive for professionalism and a clean cut look to prepare us for a typical or usual workplace in future careers. Yes, Jesus had long hair. Whatever. This is just a dress code for this school. If you don't like it, don't go to school here. Go somewhere where you can do that. Its not a sin to have long hair. If you come here because this is your only option for school, great, we'd love to have you, but this is the dress code. Don't whine about it, just show respect to the rules that they have established. Sometimes we have to sacrifice things we want and that's just part of life. That could be a reason for this dress code. I'm not saying I love every little rule, in fact, I hate having short hair, but I have respect for the rules and this is coming from someone who had hair down to my shoulders. This generation has a high scence of entitlement.

Re: “Video: Coeur d'Alene High School Bans Bare Shoulders, Spaghetti Straps From Homecoming Dance

Maybe the school administration should take a tour of the retail stores to see that the options for the girls are quite limited as far as covered shoulders. This seems very unfair and even punitive, for little reason. Since when does being a 'premier' school mean students' dress for one event cannot be modified? Narrow.

Re: “Anti-Vaxx to the Max

Re ChristyAnn's post:

I'm confident that the pro-vaxxers have no intention of resting until ALL children and adults are forced to received EVERY vaccine the pro-vaxxers want to force on them. The intolerance, the bullying, and the lying of the pro-vaxxers caught my attention long before I learned that the pro-vaxxers have no science supporting their position.

Yes, when vaccination is forced on those who don't want it--when something is forced into another's body, or into the bodies of their children, against their will--that IS rape. People like Rick Perry are truly reprehensible.

During the congressional investigation of vaccine safety ten-plus years ago, testimony was submitted pointing out that mandatory vaccination is a violation of the Nuremberg Code. Think the Nazi threat is gone? Better think again.

"The Refusers," the pro-freedom band with great song lyrics about vaccination, has one entitled, "Get Your Mandates Out of My Body." They're worth checking out.

Silliness in the extreme. Stepford wives are completely acceptable, but don't let men wear their hair in a bun ... because "sinful."

Re: “BYU-Idaho Bans 'Man Buns' On Campus

I just checked out 'Jesus' at the Mormon Book Store - Deseret Books - on line, and found a whole bunch of pictures, all in the likeness of Jesus. None of those pictures showed Jesus' s hair trimmed above the collar leaving the ear uncovered. Looks like that's one bro who won't be attending BYU this semester. What a heretic. All of his pictures should be removed from the Mormon bookstore immediately. Can a fellow stay in school at BYU if his long locks simply hang down free-flowing rather than being pulled up in a bun? What if he works in the food line at the campus cafeteria? Expelled? Puleeze. Aren't there bigger problems in this world than hair buns?

Another lawsuit that taxpayers get to pay for. How many of these have we won in the last few years. Think about all the money we need to come up with to cover attorney fees and we keep losing. Either we need better attorney's or better lawsuits.

That's Idaho... believing that public lands belong to the state and (in Idaho) cattle interests. Give it a rest Idaho (B. Otter and the Idaho Cattlemen's Association), Idaho taxpayers are finally starting to realize that what they are getting comes out the backend of a cow....

It's comical that you find a few individuals choosing to wear a man bun is "cheapening the standards of the neighborhood." If it weren't for free-thinkers who dance to the beat of their own drum, 90% the art that we see daily in every aspects of our lives would not be there, from the clothes you wear to the car you drive. What a drab world one would live in without individuality. Their hair is in a neat bun, for fuck's sake! They aren't wearing assless chaps! God would be ashamed that this little issue is even an issue.

Re: “BYU-Idaho Bans 'Man Buns' On Campus

@D Smith: It's a Mormon thing because it's the rules of a Mormon ran university. To say that the kids could have gone to any other school shows how clueless you are about the world today. I'm from Twin Falls, Idaho and I certainly couldn't have gone to any other school due to financial reasons. I graduated from Boise State, but not because it was my first choice, but because it was my only choice. It costs tons of money for a student to move and live out of state who has just graduated high school, and then to attend a university where you more-than-likely are having to pay out-of-state tuition for. So yes, if they came from a wealthy family, of course they could attend any other school. Unfortunately, that's not usually the case. To have to attend "any other school" so that you can show an ounce of individuality is simply appalling. It's comical that you find a few individuals choosing to wear a man bun is "cheapening the standards of the neighborhood." If it weren't for free-thinkers who dance to the beat of their own drum, 90% the art that we see daily in every aspects of our lives would not be there, from the clothes you wear to the car you drive.
