Guy Says Women With Dyed Hair Are ‘Toxic’ And Inspires A Rainbow Of Backlash

According to one self-proclaimed life coach, a woman dyeing her hair “unnatural” colors is not a matter of taste or preference. Instead, this behavior is “a warning signal to stay away” and exactly the same as “Aposematism-the phenomenon of poisonous animals in nature advertising their toxicity and lethality.” Big word. Valiant attempt at a metaphor.

I call him a life coach because Alexander J.A Cortes calls himself a “trainer, writer, and speaker.” In a recent Twitter thread, he wrote that women who bleach and dye their hair are like “poison arrow frogs” and “venomous snakes” who are born brightly-colored as a defense mechanism. “When you see a woman with red blue green purple rainbow hair,” he wrote, “its a sign of mental illness and derangement”

Cortes’ only example features fictional comic book character Harley Quinn. “Obviously she’s more attractive than your typical unnaturally hair colored SJW chick,” he wrote, without specifying whether he is referring to Margot Robbie, the actress who plays Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, or Harley Quinn, the DC comic book character in general.

He clarifies that “there’s nothing wrong with” women who dye their hair a “natural color,” but rejects the color blue as “Manhater” and pink as “I have a mental disease.”

He once again cites fictional psychopath Harley Quinn as evidence of his argument.

Cortes warns “young kings” that women who seem stable but dye their hair are “grappling with some immense inner turmoil and upheaval.”

And ends with this confounding message:

The women of Twitter were beyond grateful to this fabulous life coach for his insightful life advice.

And fully agreed that their hair color was a conscious effort to keep men wayyyyy over there, thanks.

Others pointed out the lack of any kind of actual science in OP’s hypothesis.

More gratifying is the amount of women who posted pictures of themselves with colorful hair, and all the supportive comments that followed.
