We're standing in line for coffee when out of nowhere, I get honked.
The lady behind us reached up, wrapped me up in her grubby paw and squeezed.
"Your man bun is so soft," she says to the man to whose head I'm affixed with a black elastic hair tie. "I've never touched one before."
An innocent compliment to most, but to me this violent assault is just another example of the indignities of my existence. I'm just a bun, after all. I didn't choose to be tied to a man. Women gawk and stare. Sometimes they'll shout: "Nice man bun, baby! Men comment, too: "Your man-bun game is strong today, bro!"
Other jeers have been more violent: "Cut your hair, you stinkin' hippie!"
It's been a year since the "man bun" Ken doll was released, but I'm still triggered when I think about the onslaught of bun-shaming on Twitter:
"The new 'Man Bun' Ken doll comes with shirt, shoes and keys to Barbie's car that he's driving until he 'gets back on his feet again,'" one user quipped. "I don't even own Mattel's new man bun Ken Doll but he already told me the dangers of processed food and how Bernie would have beaten Trump," another mused.

>>Hmmm. Who has a man bun?
If you aren’t a samurai, then the man bun is a male bun at best.
It’s a grab handle for his boyfriend.
more like a beta male bun
Beta Bun ??
Wno has a man bun? No man that I would respect.
Man buns need Manwich.
Cancer of the hair is a terrible thing.
...a bob knob
I did, in college. In retrospect I probably looked like a douche.
Grew it out again last year -- my office is permissive as long as it's for charity -- but I ended up cutting it off while it was still a few inches short to donate for Locks of Love. Reactions ranged from "nice man-ban, bruh" To "what the hell are you supposed to be, Tom Cruise in the Last Samurai?" Moral of the story -- if you want to be taken seriously, don't try to do a man-bun. Not exactly a shocker but I think the phase where it was considered even remotely cool or avant-garde has passed.
You mean dork knob ?
Well...not me, but then...I'm not a faggot.
I was thinking she grabbed his butt!
I don’t like sissy stuff!
I have a nice shiny dome. Some might call it chrome. Back in the late 60s early 70s I sported a pony tail which was the style at the time. I didnt consider it feminine. The women I knew certainly didnt consider it feminine.
Now today we see men with man buns. I gag and laugh at every male I see wearing one. But am I just doing the same thing my fathers generation did when seeing my long hair or pony tail?
Im not sure. But they just look wrong. Buns just seem to say snow flake
Are you carrying a katana? Are you wearing a kimono? No, not a girly one? Are you in service to a Shogun? No?
Then you should not be wearing a man-bun. End of discussion.
