Leaving aside the gender bias being shown, while it may be hard to tell what gender some kids are at that age, who really cares? Even so, I applaud their decision to donate the hair to a worthy cause, Still, one thing I don't understand though is the line in the article that says, "The family needs to raise 350 for the hair to be made into a wig by a charity [roughly $530 US]. There are people who will cut the hair for free, and organizations [such as the Little Princess Trust mentioned in the article] that will make the wigs with no charge to the donors or recipients of the hair. I would hope that they don't "need" the money, but instead are trying to raise money to help offset the cost of the wig.

Great use for his beautiful hair. Maybe when he gets older he can grow it out again.

I don't care if he is a boy or a girl, he is adorable!! And his hair is beautiful. Whoever gets it will be very lucky!

I'm with Roger. I don't understand why his family has to pay the money. I've donated my hair twice now and they never charged me!

They are asking for money because in England all the wigs are paid for by community fundraising or the family receiving the wig.

What he is doing is an awesome thing.I do not like the word "gender bias".There are males and females,we are different because we each have a special purpose.It does not mean that one is superiour to the other.It just is what it is.To deny that there is a difference is like saying do not say that the grass is green,because I like pink better , and I might get offended.It is what it is,stop being so uptight.
