I just watched the film ‘Young Adult’ with Charlize Theron and have mixed feelings about the hair pulling condition that she had. While I’m pleased that hair pulling was dealt with in a major motion picture, and therefore trichotillomania was brought out of the closet somewhat, it did bother me that she was such a nut case. Trichotillomania isn’t a crazy person condition. Hair and eyelash pulling touches all types of people. So I felt like the movie sterotypes hair pullers somewhat.
What do you think?
