Pretty sure they're banning them because they are ugly. 😂😂😂 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.
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
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.
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 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."
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?
Hey if you don't like the rules don't go there!
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.
@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.

Jesus had long "extreme" hair. Hypocrites, commercialized religion, sexism is all Mormonism is. I'm Mormon I should know. I've requested multiple times to be ex-communicated. Can't seem to get out of the system. They keep on wanting to know where to send my "file".
Just when you think we have evolved socially and culturally here in the year 2015, shit like this happens and reminds you we still have miles and miles yet to go.
1.) Isn't Jesus depicted as having long hair? Oooooh, right, we're all about Joseph Smith, I forgot.
2.) BYU Honor Code states that men's hair should be "clean and neat, avoiding extreme styles of colors and trimmed above the collar leaving the ear uncovered." I'm assuming their hair is clean, it's clearly in a neat bun, and it is above the collar, leaving the ear uncovered.
3.) BYU boys: Is the lines of gender being crossed and making you question your sexuality?
4.) BYU girls: Is the man bun giving you impure thoughts, making it harder for those clean cut good-old-boys to take you out for a milkshake?
5.) Actually, yeeeah no, I get it. Man buns are so sexy and so distracting that they must be sent down from the devil himself from planet number 666.
I think our Raul "fits into the U.S. House shakeup" in much the same way as the sub-province of Labrador fits into Canada -- a barren, windswept, isolated, and hard-to-reach land of sparse activity and few people, on the extreme right fringe of the nation, which didn't even join the country of Canada until 1949, and even now remains remote from the mainstream of life in our friendly and moderate "good neighbor to the north".
How did this become a Mormon thing? 30,000 kids, who could have gone to any other school sign a pledge to follow strict guidelines. Eyes wide open...then a few say, hey that rule is no good, I will not conform...they get called on it and its open season on Mormons? Pathetic trolls. Try living in a neighborhood with an HOA and painting your hous pink...your neughbors pay not to see it. HOA is paid to enforce what we all agreed to...to not cheapen the standards of the neighborhood. Saying jesus had a blue house or God created blue exposes your patheticness...now go get a hobby.
Hahahaha it's because some morm guy couldn't pull a chick right after his mission and was threatened by all the hotness that another morm with the bun was bringing to the campus.
"My man bun brings all the girls to the yard!!"
I think Jesus had long hair...just sayin'.
Hahha silly Mormons
