"if you’re straight then why did you say she was hot"
yo i’m straight not blind
One time a nun at my school saw a hot guy and said “woah God did a nice job on that one” and we all looked at her like ??? and she goes “I’m allowed to look at the menu I just can’t order”
Jada Pinkett-Smith is aware of the critics that frown up their noses at the way she raises her daughter, Willow. Willow cuts, dyes and styles her hair as she pleases, a fact that bothers many who feel girls shouldn’t have that much control over their appearance at such a young age.
Jada decided to address the criticism in a Facebook post:
“A letter to a friend…This subject is old but I have never answered it in its entirety. And even with this post it will remain incomplete. The question why I would LET Willow cut her hair. First the LET must be challenged. This is a world where women, girls are constantly reminded that they don’t belong to themselves; that their bodies are not their own, nor their power or self determination. I made a promise to endow my little girl with the power to always know that her body, spirit and her mind are HER domain. Willow cut her hair because her beauty, her value, her worth is not measured by the length of her hair. It’s also a statement that claims that even little girls have the RIGHT to own themselves and should not be a slave to even their mother’s deepest insecurities, hopes and desires. Even little girls should not be a slave to the preconceived ideas of what a culture believes a little girl should be.”
I’m pretty sure I’ve reblogged this before but seriously this is something we should be teaching all our children. Their bodies are theirs, not ours as parents. As soon as you tell someone their body doesn’t belong to theirs you take away so much from them.
I grew up never allowed to cut my hair more than an inch at a time, and only to get rid of split ends, because “girls are supposed to have long hair.”
So said my dad and his mullet. (¬_¬)
My hair was so heavy, as it was all the way down past my butt, that I had constant head and neck pain, and still I could not cut it.
My hair was a source of emotional pain as well, because I was not just a “girl.”
It wasn’t until my mom put my dad on a restraining order (long story) that I was finally able to cut my hair to a reasonable length, and I could finally move my head easily.
Every year since I moved out, my hair has gotten progressively shorter - and I LOOK GREAT.
My hair length has nothing to do with my sex, gender expression, sexuality, or any other asinine assumption you could make from my appearance. It has everything to do with ME being the one who chooses how MY body looks.
And that’s all it’s about.
So to hell with the haters, Jada, you’re a kick-ass mom.
