This indeed is natural, and I get uncomfortable with long hair.
Many still do that because of their ignorance. For me it is sad when I see such case.
Some believers who live in willful sin are so deceived that you cannot even treat them as believers, but unbelievers who need the veil removed.
"Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous,
or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world." - 1 Corinthians 5:10
But some are just indeed ignorant, they do not live in willful sin but they may have some unpleasant conversation with those who do.
"Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal:
“The Lord knows those who are His,” and,
“Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”" - 2 Timothy 2:19
But each one with their own conscience.
"...For why is my liberty judged by another man’s conscience?" - 1 Corinthians 10:29
This is another thing I will let for each one's decision.
Because if such thing would be implemented in its fullness, then all the women would not be speaking on the internet.
And especially on this forum, where most are women.
Additionally, I do not believe it is a salvation issue. I know you're not saying it is, but I feel you are being too strong over this.
Just live and do as you are led by the Holy Spirit.
"For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us,
to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things:
that you abstain from things offered to idols, from blood, from things strangled,
and from sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well." - Acts 15:28-29
And the sad part is that many people are simply failing on the necessary things. This is something to be really worried about.
I am not saying that we should willfully ignore and disobey the rules we must follow inside the church; but we should not forget mercy as well, when it is applicable.
God bless you in Jesus' name!
