Why do american people wear hats at home?

And WTF is wrong with people wearing this beanie hats during the summer time or at home? dl.dropbox.com/u/16718920/Temp…

As a guy who lives in California, I can easily answer this.

You got to styles here 
two people who have hats with lids

then you got the people who wear the beanies.

Mexican teenagers and very skinny white males usually where the hats.

As for the beanie, a very small genre of people where those but we still do. (Mostly Stoners)

(I don't  want to sound like an ass but its true.)

These people in these pictures are "lo- lifes" or are from a low class neighborhood.
These people would rather smoke weed with friends rather going to school.

In Cal/ Los Angeles there is a lot of this. Very expensiveness clothing that people think if they buy they will look important.
Its basically a style for lower class people and the ghetto.

I see you sometimes write in Russian so if you can understand English. Here is a video of what these people are like.

Well if you'd like I can just some up the music video.

First guy= A person who thinks is better than everyone and expects to be rich and famous without contributing to anything. Someone who has no ambitions in life and doesn't try to do anything, but hanging out with friends.

Girls= They want a guy who treats them right. But have sex every other night. 

Black guy= Represents a ghetto person, and isn't trying to succeed in life. Only trying to earn respect by his peers by doing anything necessary.


Yeah California is filled with these people. I'm not proud of it. But its good to see you experiencing new culture, whatever it may be. :)

I understand the whole plot of the video. And I searched the lyrics of this song later and read it. But thanks anyway =)

One might well ask: why do you shave your head, instead of letting your hair be displayed as it was meant to? But of course your answer is probably going to be something like "Because I want to!" or "Because somebody is forcing me to." I hope it's the first, not the second. People from all cultures around the world wear what they wear for lots and lots of different reasons, but mostly because within their culture that's what they feel comfortable with. Or, sometimes, because they want to make a statement to point out something about the culture they wish to make public. People wore long hair in the late '60s and '70s because it was a sign of the counter culture, and because the Beatles looked cool when they did it first. Today it's not so much the style, but some men still wear long hair. Who is to say they shouldn't?

As for what's "girlie".... Hmmm.... Sounds like a value judgment on your part. I'm pretty sure one doesn't have to shave one's head to prove one is a man. In fact, why should any male have to prove to you why he is a man?

In any case, as Freud said, "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar."

The trick is to know when to smoke it....

Regards!

About my hair. I shave it in summer time. Becouse it's too hot outside and I don't want to get my brains boiled.

About "girlie hairstyle". It's not about how long hair is. It's about the way it's cut. Some hairstyles was designed to make woman look more femine. And for some reason those hairstyles bacame popular in teen fashion. For some reason some young man want to look more femine. I'm not judging that's just how it actually looks.

So the question is "why you want to look like a girl?"

Again, the notion of "look like a girl" is entirely cultural. There are many cultures in the world where male hairstyles do not look like those of western men. And especially in today's globalized world, all of us need to be more accepting of cultural differences that enrich us all. This includes notions of what is "appropriately" male vs. "appropriately" female. Old traditional western notions of what a man should look and behave like are changing fast, and who knows whether such changes will ultimately be easy or hard, comfortable or scary. But one thing we can all be sure of, and that is that change will happen.

It's said that "The only person who likes change is a baby in a wet diaper." True that. But then, sooner or later we're all toilet trained!

"all of us need to be more accepting of cultural differences that enrich us all"

Nope. I'm not planing to accept something like that. dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/16…

Some cultural traditions support killing people of different culture and religion. Also stealin planes and blow shit up.

But still, that's not the point. I just asked why some young man wear female hairstyles? That's all.

You asked, and I answered. You don't seem to like the answer, which I sort of expected. But that doesn't make the answer wrong. It has nothing to do with your notion of "cultural differences" as equivalent to terrorism. But the very question you asked before, and are asking again, using the words you've chosen to use, seems to suggest any or all of the following:

a) you possibly haven't traveled enough, or you live in a very homogeneous environment, so you haven't really encountered the wide range of humanity – how people around the world look, act, dress, think differently;
b) you might be a bit naive or self-centered, in believing that there's only one way to look, act, dress, or think – and that way is your way;
c) you might harbor some prejudices that are getting in the way of seeing people as both similar to and different from you in ways that enrich us all (such as whether a hairstyle is "male" or "female");
d) you are confusing multiculturalism with "values relativism," which is understandable, I suppose, but confusing those two things is very very dangerous, for all of us. It leads us to assume that Culture 1 is better than Culture 2 in all ways, because we reject Culture 2 in one way (such as support for terrorism).

Of course, none of the above might be true of you. After all, I don't know you and can't really make any assumptions. But what you have said here, and how you say it (allowing perhaps that English might not be your native language) raise these kinds of concerns. And if any of them ARE true of you, then the situation can be remedied if you really want it to. I hope you'll decide to open yourself up to humanity. Some people are nasty, for sure, but most people are good to get to know. I'm betting that you're one of the people who might be good to get to know....

Well, yes. English is not my native language, I was study it in school and it was long time ago. So it's possible that there might be some kind of language barrier in our discussion. It's not like I care a lot about how other people look. I don't judge and I don't care. I was expecting some kind of simple answer like "I want to look cute to attract woman" or "It's just fashion". Few peoples up there answered that way and I was sutisfied by their answers. But looks like you took my words too personally. Especially "girlie" part. I didn't wanted to offend you or something. And it's not like I think that hairstyle important for me =)  But anyway, I get your point and understand it. Peace, dude.

I appreciate very much your reply. It makes complete sense to me. And whatever your own native language is, I would be proud if I could write it as well as you do in English.

Peace is a good thing. To you as well!

I've always assumed that it is to protect against evil thought waves and wavelengths that eminate from all electical items and gadgets - especially T.V.s, mp3 players, mobile phones and Ipods.

Personally, I always take extra security precautions when watching T.V. and when around microwaves. I can heartily recommend wrapping your head in tin foil before doing so. This protects against mind infiltration techniques used by the C.I.A., F.B.I., A.L.I.E.N.S., S.H.I.E.L.D., and other assorted non-governmental organisations [N.G.O.'s]. & governmental organisations [G.O.'s]. As it is not currently fashionable to pop down to the shops wearing shiny metallic objects on your head, lots of these people have taken to wearing the beanie hat as a type of disguise. Other people opt for the more discrete option of having a metal plate installed in their head. Some people not in the know, choose to ignore the potential dangers.

Also, to answer your last point: lots of these beanie hats wearing guys also have girly hair because they are metrosexuals. A metrosexual is the politically correct way of saying that someone is gay without giving a fence.

1. They don't all wear hats at home all the time. It's done for photos to project a look of themselves to others. For young men, it's important others perceive then as "cool".

2. Because they have security/comfort issues?

3. Because Barber's are rarer than hair salon's. It's hard to tell a female hair stylist not to style your hair when her rack is in your face and your hormones are raging.

We like hats, It's kind of a staple. You see hats everywhere, I honestly hadn't thought about it or even taken notice till you posted this lol. As for the hair I would like to know the answer to why so many people have the feminine haircuts, just really metro I guess. If you find the answer let me know

I am not sure if this is an actual question you want answered, or just an observation. However, in the cases of those you pictured I would assume it is by and large a security blanket. An item that allows the individual to be comfortable with themselves by use of what amounts to a personal talisman against negative feelings. In some cases it is merely an accessory, just a part of a "look" that fits what the person see as their style. As mentioned else where, you could see it as "outsider" culture, but given the frequency at which you see these hats (esp amongst the youth) it is more likely a move towards conformity...that was probably too much, and certainly more than a DA comment should ever merit, but well you asked and I like your drawings :)

As an american myself, I can easily answer your question.

People wear beanie hats are mostly, in a small group of friends and are known as outcasts, they are also known as hippsters.

while the people who wear the hats with the lid, are usually the people who break the law for fun, and are mostly in a small gang.

I can understand wearing a beanie or other 'warm' hats at home when it's freezing ass cold and there's no heating...

But I've never understood the idea of wearing a baseball cap, and having a hoodie over the top of it! It looks quite, QUITE absurd and I hope these people see photos of themselves in 10-15 years.
Their shame will amuse me greatly ^_^

Currently enjoying the embarrassment of 80's teenagers and their hairstyles :D
