mizbohemia Once upon a time she was sent to school in tears for her long hair had been chopped off into an unruly helmet Afro atrocity and picture day had arrived and they thought that sticking her in a traditional Danish dress would make up for the butchered hair but, alas, it did not and so the tears remained and out of that this red-eyed pause between sobs was caught for the much dreaded documenting of a time she wished not to remember.

mizbohemia When my mom forced upon me your-hair-MUST-be-cut-short-in-order-for-it-to-grow-in-thick old wives' tale Afro haircuts and orthopedic shoes were all I could wear and... need I say more?

  •   lilymaza OMG! My dad demanded/claimed the exact same thing at that age! And here I thought I was the only one on this planet with an arguably "crazy" parent! I feel so much better now. Seriously, thanks so much for this. 1w
  •   mizbohemia @lilymaza YOU WERE NOT ALONE! My mom and grandma were PSYCHO when it came to chopping off my hair! This is what I wrote a friend on FB and it applies to me and you here too: My aunt once had a hairdresser come to her house to cut all the ladies' hair. So they decided to add me to the mix and do the monstrosity above. I hid for over an hour until the found me, dragged me kicking and screaming to cut the hair crazy short and midway through the cut I shrieked, hit the hairdresser and ran away. Can you tell that short hair and I do not get along? It's why it's been HUGE to me for my daughter to really dig her look. I TOTALLY feel you! There is much trauma in hair gone wrong! 1w
  •   lilymaza @mizbohemia This is literally THE FIRST TIME in my life that I have heard of another person with the same general experience. I went around for months with people thinking I was a boy after cutting my straight, down-to-my-butt length hair that had caused most to refer to me as Pocahontas for years! The short boy hair ordeal was decidedly more traumatic. 1w
  •   mizbohemia @lilymaza It's an old school irooni thing! My aunt used to do the same thing to my cousin @afsypafsy ! I swear a lot of my self loathing issues and insecurities of my early years easily stem back to the bad hair years! 1w
