Hahah Never gets old! Not only is it funny, but fiercely accurate! But where did it come from?
Hairstyles are not prescriptive to sexual identity of course. Not every lesbian has an undercut and not every gay guy has bleached his hair blonde, but they do appear to form part of the new queer semiotics. The haircut, which grows anywhere between chin and shoulder-length, has, of late, become one of the most identifiable tropes of bisexual culture.

Queer folk in general though have a long history of signalling identity via personal aesthetics.
