Question: No offence or anything, but, why are you bald?


  1. No offence taken; I am quite pleased to be bald. I used to hate having to go to get my hair cut every couple of months, and now I can just shave my own head in minutes whenever I feel like it! So it’s much better. To answer the question, I am bald by nature – this is a genetically inherited condition known as “male pattern baldness”, and although the inheritance pattern is complicated and not completely understood, it is said that men inherit it from their mother’s father, and in my case that is true – my father isn’t bald, and neither was his father, but my mother’s father is.
