America has a proud tradition of freaking out when the surgeon general offers helpful health tips (see: Dr. Joycelyn Elders). So it almost seems like Dr. Regina M. Benjamin was looking for trouble when she made a point about obesity, black women, and hair.
In recent years we've been subjected to several campaigns that aim to make breast cancer (you know, the deadly disease) more "sexy." Now the idiotic effort to make cancers that affect women more titillating has reached a new low, literally: Women in Canada are being urged to shave their pubic hair into a creative…
A London boy was sent home from his first day of school for wearing his hair in cornrows, which apparently violated his school's strict dress code. Now a court has ruled this was discriminatory.

In Jenna's words, "I expected some kind of pink-and-purple glittery shit from Claire's. I clicked the link and...she pulled her hair back? I don't get it!" And yet, The Hair is an international topic.
