    Very interesting read.

    My take away from this is I understand why someone would not want to feel like they are being petted like an animal. I don't personal take it that far, but my concern is that i don't know where a stranger's hands have been. Some people are nasty, using the restroom and not washing their hands. That would be the same person asking to touch your hair. Yuck!

    I agree with a lot of what she said but not all. It was an interesting article.
