If you aren't accepting of everyone then life will be hard for you. And if you are one of those people who may not be accepted then your rallying cry is "Deal with it." Boys will be girls and girls will be boys, as The Kinks sang back in 1970, which is another way of saying none of this gender ambiguity stuff is new.

All well and good if that's your thing but what if I'm not accepting of brands that try desperately to seem cool by pandering to what they presume is cool to Generation Tumblr? What if I point out that everything the voiceover suggests is so edgy and unique is actually very superficial? What if I'm not a fan of trying hard to seem rebellious when you are in fact a big box chain of hair salons with thirty-eight different locations?

    This sort of sells Kinki Kappers as the place to dye your hair, which isn't what comes to mind when I think of that salon (other than it's fashionable to dye your hair now). I had grey hair in 1994, nothing is new under the sun.
