Hair grows back,bruises heal,mental torture shows no physical signs.............how far do you push the boat out before you call it assault?

Ah yes, the "slippery slope" argument. Give it up, you're not proving anything to anyone.

Like I said if he had done it to her would you still consider it less than assault?

its assualt regardless of gender

Gender should play no role what so ever in crimes, except in cases where it actually has a reason, for example a mother who does something to her newborn because postpartum depression

Maybe assault to his pride... but nothing else. Hair grows back. It was harmless. Society is in deep **** when we consider this to be a valid thing to arrest someone over...

It's damaging part of someone's body without their consent, and I used to know of a group of nasty girls in high school who would cut off the hair of other girls who had long pretty hair, that they were jealous of, basically. Nasty and catty and yes, assault.

If there was a "mass spree of hair cutting girls", and they kept doing it to a lot of people, then yes. But if it is just 1 girl, doing it to her boyfriend, who she warned, then no. Lets not look at this in the wrong way, or try to judge it by putting in other cases that are more severe.

So maybe theft isnt a crime, after all you can get it back, its harmless.


Do items that are stolen normally naturally grow back in a month? Let's not be stupid for the sake of it....

no, if they are returned they are back. you didnt lose anything so there isnt a loss.

So if he said "Im going to hit you if you come home drunk it would be okay? once again, no brusies or permanent damage.

if the item stolen was returned, using your logic, the thief shouldnt be charged, because nothing was lost or permanent

I'd be annoyed if someone shaved my head, I would flip tables if someone cut my eyebrows.


I woke up a couple of times with no eyebrow (s)

There used to be a big group of us and it became an ongoing battle when we were drinking to be the last to fall asleep, or at least not the first.

Being a 'girlfriend', does not give her a right to shave his head.

If the situation were reversed, no one would support HIS actions.

Barbers cut kids hair all the time without the kids authority. Sure, kids don't have any over their parents, but it's the same though, if we are going to go by all the "standards" being set... Arrest all barbers!!!!! /s Ya, i can go there lol



Hair grows back. This is probably one of the lightest ways to ever get revenge on someone, besides the old *point my finger at your chest and smack you in face with it when you look down* bit.... ASSAULT !!! :p
