Long locks for men? Keep your hair on! | Brief letters

Nobody worries whether women have long or short hair, so why do men suffer this sexist prejudice? The piece about Tomasz Schafernaker (Pass notes, 14 April) reminded me of the day when I was a teacher and came upon two boys standing forlornly outside the headmaster’s office. One had been sent there because his hair was deemed to be too long, the other because his hair was too short.

A taste of their own medicine?

The reinstatement of two letters pages is urgent (Letters, 14 April), but not far behind is that of Notes & queries. The contributions to it are testament to the exceptional minds of many who take the Guardian.

If the letters page returns to “normal”, at least I’ll have a better chance of having a letter published.
