Stop saying “Hair is hair.” Or, “It’s freedom of choice.”
Fuck you so hard.
I don’t get a choice in how I manage my hair if I want a job. There is a notable difference in how I am perceived by others depending on how much my hair resembles an acceptable white hairstyle.
So don’t you dare say “Hair is hair.”
Hair is a site of trauma and rehabilitation. My relationship with my hair is so goddamned fucked up, you have no idea. You will never have any notion of what it’s like for me to look in a mirror and try to figure out whether or not people will shy away from me on the street, or someone will clutch their purse, or people will let their kids STARE at me like I’m in some fucking zoo.
Hair is hair my ass.
This too people. Especially because I have natural hair for the first time in a long time and it is fucking so scary, I wear wigs because people TREAT ME BETTER when I do.
if hair is just hair then why do so many people try to make my life a living hell because of it?
oh thats right. “hair is just hair” is something only non-nappyheaded people can ever say.
