A very controversial question but, a genuine one really. This is really sensitive but, it's just my own views and I'd like to see different thoughts. Okay, so, you know those cancer patients that need to shave their head? It's unfortunate and I do feel sad for them. But, I saw bunch of videos where the patient's friends or family also shave their own heads in order to support or make them feel like they are not alone. I know for most people, it's heartwarming, and I can see it in that angle. But... On my angle, those healthy people who shave their own heads to show support, don't really do it for support of the cancer patient, rather, it's all for clout of the internet. Cause if they're genuine, why record it for the world to see? Just shave your own head in private and surprise them in private, and if people notice in public, great. But why bother posting it on the internet? All for clout in my opinion. Another thing, even more controversial claim to support my statement that they do it for clout, I find the whole healthy people shaving their head for cancer patients to be.... Really attention seeking. In the end, their hair will grow back and that's why they do it easily, since they have nothing to worry about. I mean, let's replace cancer patients with accident patients that lost one of their arm. I don't see anyone from their friends or family chopping their arm off to show support now do they? Yup, 100% for clout. In my opinion, just be there for the patient is enough. No need to do all these extra things and especially to put it up on the internet for clout. This is just my view, I know it's controversial. But, you're welcome to change my mind on how to view things differently.
