3 Degrees of Hairiness

Since I don’t have much, let’s talk about it!!! I am talking about hair, no not the thingy on your head, but body hair. I have been observing lately here in China, and I have concluded that there are three ascending degrees of hairiness among males here in the western region of China.

The first degree is the “I have hair but you can’t see it” hairy. These are the males who do not want to face the reality that they do not have any visible hair but still wants to remain relatively manly in attempt to not seem too insecure. About 5% of the male population here fall into this degree, which is quite a lot considering the Xinjiang province, where I am, is consider the only region in China to produce real men. “Real men” as in lots of drinking, fighting, cursing, and hair.  (Inner Mongolia also produce their own share of manliness too, but being overweight has become quite an issue)

The second degree is the “I have hair, so what” hairy. These are the males who have some visible hair (mostly black hair).They do not try to show-off their hair nor do they try to hide it, because to them it’s simply a part of their physique like an arm or a leg. About 75% of the male population here fall into this degree, and that is quite unusual, considering I am in a rather hairy part of the country.

The third degree is the “Holy shit!! I thought Asians didn’t have that much hair” hairy. These are the males who have trouble getting sunlight exposure on their skin due to the amount of hair on their legs. These are the males who grimace when they have to rip athletic tape off of their body. These are also the male who can braid their “happy trail”, twirl their chest hair, and sometimes be mistaken for not being completely 100% Chinese, because I guess the “stereotype” of us isn’t of being super hairy. About 20% of the male population here fall into this degree, once again not too shocking since I am in the region of “real man”. A good real life example of this degree would be my dear friend Peter Lee, who is in my opinion “over-haired” to say the least.

What degree do you fall under???
