Turning Taunts into a Treat

An 8-year-old boy in Florida has been bullied for the last two years, which is so common an act of children, it usually isn’t headline news.

Christian McPhilamy is making the media rounds, however. He grew out his blond hair to donate to children with cancer whom he’s never met. He endured disapproving stares from adults and worse, his fellow classmates calling him a “girl.” At his age, being compared to a girl is true torture. McPhilamy turned the other cheek (whipping his beyond shoulder-length, straight, blond hair in the process), displaying adult-level maturity. He finally cut his locks and donated them to Children with Hair Loss.

The idea to grow out and then donate his hair all started when he saw a commercial for St. Jude’s Research Hospital. A Google search with his mom by Amen Clinics lead to his discovery that such organizations collect hair to make wigs for children with cancer who lost their hair during treatment. He felt so bad for them, he made the decision to make a donation. His cut yielded four sections, each 10 inches long.

McPhilamy now sports a more traditional cut for boys.

Everybody Loves A Dadbod

If you haven’t heard of the term “dadbod” you are missing out. Just last week the term went viral and was a firestorm across the internet. All 20-something females were talking about their love for the dadbod. In case you missed all of the dadbod talk, let me fill you in.

Dadbod is a term used to describe a guy’s body who isn’t obsessed with working out but isn’t totally sloppy fat either. Take Vince Vaughn or modern-day Leonardo DiCaprio, both have what we would consider to be a dadbod and the ladies seem to really dig it.

There are many reasons why women love the dadbod. For one, this body type isn’t at all intimidating. If you’re still trying to picture a dadbod, just imagine a guy that goes to the gym a few times a week, nothing over the top. This guy also likes to drink on the weekends and eat out, so his diet isn’t strict or limiting. Obviously with these habits, he’s not going to have a rock hard six-pack and that’s okay. Women feel much more comfortable around a guy who is content with himself.

Guys should take note at this latest craze laughs Alexei Beltyukov on AboutMe. Perhaps busting it in the gym six days a week is no longer necessary to score a date with a hot chick. Instead, they should feel at ease with their love for beer and pizza and the occasional gym session. The dadbod is perfect for letting girls know just how fun you are. We know you won’t be too upset if you miss a gym session to grab wings and beer for the big game instead.
