It’s been over 100 degrees over the past week, which makes it way too hot to wear an afro.
I want to shave my head, but I don’t want to freak people (e.g. employers/future interviewers/my parents) out. I mean, you guys should have seen my parents’ reaction to me cutting my hair for the first time. Oy.
Maybe I’m just really uncomfortable with the idea of being read as masculine. I don’t identify as masculine/transmasculine, but I don’t think of myself as being (high?) femme, either. (Maybe a better word to describe myself might be ‘neutrois’? I’m still trying to figure that out.)
