Long hair, short hair, or no hair on a woman? What difference does it make as long as she feels good in her skin and can rock her attitude with it? I honestly love having my hair short because I feel I look better with this style. But apparently to one of my friend's boyfriends, women who have short hair are not women. Say what?
In his own defense, he stated that "Women with long hair have been the eye of beauty since the beginning of time. When I see a girl with short hair it makes me feel bad that they try so hard to be a man instead of a woman." Okay, maybe from the butt crack of time women had to grow their hair long, yes it probably was a signature of beauty or probably still is. But to say a woman with short hair is trying to be a man, give me a break.
Colin: Think about it, when you read romance novels or watch movies, you see the long haired beauty getting more action then the chick with the short pixie cut or whatever mop style that's in.
Me: You're kidding me, now you're saying women with longer hair get more action. Where in the hell do you get this shit?
Colin: Well for one, girls with short hair are more aggressive, and tend to be less cooperative than girls with long hair.
Me: Okay that is total bull crap.
Colin: You are proving my point, you have short hair, you are aggressive and you think to highly of yourself.
Me: Fine. So what if I'm "aggressive," speaking my mind and standing up for what I believe in is how I am. If you don't like it, take your ass somewhere else and--
Colin: See, you're doing it.
At that point my friend who had been quietly listening to this conversation put her hand against my back and told me to calm down, and that he didn't mean what he was saying. To which he replied quickly stating that all men could agree with him, long hair is more sexy and beautiful compared to short haired girls trying to be men. Adding more gas to my fire, I finally did what a "girl with short hair trying to be man" would do, threw my drink in his face before slamming my fist into his jaw. Knocking him over some, before storming out of the area. Probably not one of my best attributes, but I refuse to believe that all men think that way.
I believe beauty shouldn't be judged by outer appearance, or how we style ourselves. It should be judged by our actions and our personality.
What do you think?
