Of course, tastes and aesthetics are not always personal or political, so I do try to bite my tongue when someone can't control theirs.
Whatever the underlying causes for the aggressively negative comments may be, I respond at face value to what is in appearance, a surface issue.
For the second week, I did the same thing but with a new profile that had pictures of me with long hair.
Other than the length of my hair, every other part of my dating profiles remained the same: the same brown hair color, the same neutral makeup in most of my pictures, the same brief bio, and the same preferences for age and location radius of men.
I'm also a gay man, and by far the worst comments are from my peers.
