Does Mike Pence Straighten His Hair?

I just came across a photo of Pence with Ronald Reagan in 1988.
It naturally showed a much younger man, 29 years ago, with dark,
very curly hair, and the article described him then as an Irish-Catholic,
second generation American. I know that hair can change with age, but
I suspect that Pence, when he gave up Catholicism to become an Evangelical
Christian, also decided to hide his ethnic roots and appear more WASPish
by "processing" his curly hair. What do you think?

1. Maybe, but it is also possible for the texture of hair to change dramatically when it turns white

Usually more coarse and possibly straighter.

2. I think it is different because it's cut so short.

What is really important is that Mike Pence is shallow and stupid.

4. That photo

Of him with dark curly hair - taken in the 80s. Maybe he had a perm.

5. No, look at pic later on in article, 'Vuolo Video,' and who cares

about his hair? MUCH more about which to be alarmed. Very informative article.

6. Perhaps this appearance-shaming belongs better in the DU Lounge. . . nt

7. Perhaps, for those not interested to read the very informative article.

An example: 'The year after the RFRA debacle, Pence continued his social holy war by signing into law House Bill 1337, one of the nation's most stringent anti-abortion laws. Previously, Pence had allocated $3.5 million to Real Alternatives, a Pennsylvania company running abortion crisis centers, a.k.a. places where a woman goes for medical help and is pressured into carrying her baby to term and given no immediate medical treatment. The program had to be suspended in 2016 when Real Alternatives was investigated on billing-overcharge claims, a crime it was already under investigation for in Pennsylvania when Pence granted the contract in 2015.

But HB 1337 took his abortion obsession to a new level. Aspects of the bill included forbidding a woman from aborting a fetus that had life-ending chromosomal damage; requiring fetal burial; and a clause that could allow doctors providing these services to be charged with wrongful death. After HB 1337's passage, Hoosiers founded a movement called Periods for Pence, where through social media and a calling campaign they let the governor know the status of their menstrual cycle to protest how intrusive the legislation had become.'

8. Appearance Shaming?

The point that I made was that a second generation Irish-American, Catholic,
named after his immigrant grandfather, MAY have straightened his
hair, as he changed his religious affiliation, to appear more mainstream WASP.
Is saying someone looks like a WASP now considered "appearance shaming"?
