Actually, BCGs work mainly for females. If you are the type to not be put off by a shaved head and the ever-so stylish military apparell, a pair of BCGs will be right down your alley (let's face it, there are guys who look very sexy with shaved heads, but most have odd-shaped lumps or moles & stuff). A female, however, CANNOT look good in BCGs; I think it's actually a law of physics or something. It's a really effective method unless it's in basic or AIT, when even ritual scarification or acid burns would not be a deterrent.
