Just go to a different college.
He agreed to the rules when he enrolled. If he no longer can, in good conscience, obey those rules his only ethical recourse is to withdraw and attend a college he can agree with.
From the link: Where in the Bible does it say males can’t have long hair? It doesn’t. Jesus had long hair.”
I Cor 11:14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have longhair, it is a shame unto him?
AND: Heb 13:17 says: Obey them that have the ruleoveryou, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
This is what liberals do. They go to organizations that have policies they do not like and them claim some sort of victim status in order to effect change, because you know that his life will not have been a waste so long as he can get this school to change its policy on hair.
I think going through an appeal process to the board is legitimate (if allowed), but he would need to accept whatever the board decides.
And he would also need to follow the existing regulations in the meantime. That would show submission to authorities.
If the board denies his appeal, he should either follow the regulations or transfer.
Anything beyond what I outlined would be excessive and inappropriate.
Also, the appeal to anxiety annoys me. If he has a legitimate condition for which a physician believes his longer hair helps to alleviate, he should obtain documentation. I think it would be hard to find such a physician. If he has anxiety, he can pursue counseling and medication, if necessary.
It annoys me because, as someone with a serious mental illness, flippant appeals such as this undermine progress on mental illness awareness. It turns even severe things into "It's not that bad." or "It's all in your head" (which is technically true, just not like they mean it).
If the man agreed to the terms when he came to the place, he should abide by the rules like everyone else! I hate the way people these days think that they can overturn EVERYTHING by whining about it to outside sources, ie, liberal media, liberal minded professors, etc. That's become all too prevalent in our society these days...a real pet peeve of mine.
IF that was the case ( which I highly doubt) then that should have been settled before arriving on campus.
He likely couldn't appeal to the board as a non-student. But I agree that he should abide by the rules until given permission otherwise, if at all.
But he could have inform the college before hand.
I've worked for a college. That kind of request would be ignored or trashed almost immediately.
UNLESS there was a medical issue.I don't believe for one minute there is about his man bun, but for mental illness, most people don't want to disclose unless absolutely necessary, due to stigma.
I'm defending his right to appeal, but don't take that as support.
I think he's probably just an annoying hipster, even more now that he's trying to play up a phony mental illness issue.
