: Sad but true, Bill. Where have all the hippies gone? I don't watch TV either.
This lack of hippies on TV is further evidence that other people, namely TV show creators, make the distinctions we are talking about here. There is even a difference between gay longhairs and longhairs taken as a whole. I cite the users' galleries here and at MLHH as a source. About half of the men in the MLHH users directory have substantial facial hair. Here on the gay longhair site, it's a shade over three quarters. So distinctions like we are discussing here are made by a lot of people. They just don't have words to precisely name the two pens into which they cull people in a way that others will understand the criteria.
