去毛 (qù máo): hair removal

Mao excised from the 100 yuan bill.
Deny “hair” and chaos will ensue. (Wu Junyong)

While a search result for this term will largely direct one to sites selling lazer removal service, shaving cream, and razors, it also has a political meaning. Mao Zedong’s surname (毛) literally means “hair.” Therefore, to “de-hair” can also mean to de-Mao; 去毛化 (qù máo huà) means “de-Mao-ification,” or the minimization of Mao Zedong thought and the veneration of Mao’s role in history.
