    What does "follically different" mean?
    I found it in a list of politically correct terms (I don't have context).

    I suspect it is referring to someone who has either less or more or significantly different hair (on the head) than other folks...:)

    "follically challenged" is a term I've seen to refer humorously to someone who is bald.

    I agree that it refers to someone who probably has little or no hair - balding or bald. It's in line with "handicapped" being transmogrified into "differently abled." :)
