The English court considers this word to describe a person as a form of discrimination. “The Guardian” report. Clearly, commenting on the baldness of a more or less advanced colleague is tantamount to commenting on a woman’s breast size. Even more surprising was the fact that the three magistrates behind the decision lamented the lack of their own hair.
In the aftermath of this decision, an electrician complained. Tony Finn has worked for British Pung for over 24 years. After he was fired, the former employee complained to the company. He said his supervisor called him a “bald cunt.” According to English, physical hurt is more hurtful than shame.
