Helmet Wars! Conclusion

This is what I should have said to the helmet fascist that inspired much of this series. If I ever ride without a helmet again, I hope I can remember these 4 magic words: “none of your business.”

Helmet Wars! Brain Damage

I rode one season without a helmet. It was exciting, liberating, and sensual. Then, on my first ride wearing a helmet again, my mind was filled with resentful judgements of all the cyclists I saw who weren’t wearing helmets. Just wearing a helmet messed up my brain.

Helmet


Self-righteous helmet naggers are a much more prevalent danger to cyclists than physical injuries.  There’s little evidence my helmet would increase my physical safety in case of an accident (there’s as much evidence for the opposite, in fact), but it does protect my social safety. If I suffered an accident, I’d need the support of my friends and family, and they threaten to withhold this if I don’t wear a helmet.  So I do. And then I make cartoons complaining about it.
