    There's only a few occasions where I've seen someone with dreads and not thought they were an asshole. So, I would say, don't do it. No one looks good with dreads (in my opinion), except for very rare occurrences.

    You're going down a dark and slippery slope here. The argument could be applied towards anyone, and it's the same argument I've heard racist and bigots used, but slightly modified.

    I've never seen you.
    So, no idea if you can pull them off.

    Regardless, you're an adult. Do what you feel like doing.

    I'm fully in support of dreads.

    To me, that's the attitude of a child. Most adults want to actually put some thought into something before they actually do it. Often times, that includes getting input from others.

    To me, that's the attitude of a child. Most children have to look towards their parents and peers (read: peer pressure) for advice before they actually make a decision. Often times, that leads to doing something that they didn't enjoy doing or want to do to begin with.

    You have to twist your hair like you're braiding it, I guess and not wash your hair as often.
    Why would you want a rat nest on top of your head though?

    A vast majority of children I know will make (stupid) decisions without consulting anyone because they feel like it. Children (this includes teenagers) are animals of impulse.

    Hence the reason a vast majority of people make decisions they regret as a teenagers - such as drinking and driving, getting into a fight, getting a stupid tattoo, etc...

    But it's alright. Do whatever you feel like doing.

    I know many guys with dreadlocks that are essentially very clean. I have a friend that gets his retwisted every other week as well.

    This thread is hilarious.

    Be careful of what you say, tomorrow or today, for the words you now speak, may become the poison your enemies later seek; truth.
