femme on a mission vlog: femme fashion fail

plus putting life in perspective.

Here’s the CNN video you must watch.

So what should I do with my ugly-ass hair? And more importantly, what should we do about the discrimination in this country that just won’t seem to go away?

    Firstly, SO glad you are back!

    Second, your hair doesn’t look bad, seriously! I know that it sucks because you didn’t want it to be cut that short (trust me I would have cried too) but just embrace it!

    Third, I cannot believe they can deport that women back to Japan if Vermont recognizes gay marriage. It is just illogical. My sister-in-laws brother had a similar situation. He wasn’t married to his partner but he was here legally from Mexico and ended up being deported after being to together for two years. Very sad. They ended up breaking up and I don’t think he ever came back to the US. I hope in the future there will be much happier ending.

    Aw, honey, it really doesn’t look bad! But I so feel your pain. Even though I’m a femme with short hair, I’m super picky and the last time I got my hair cut at my usual salon, I don’t know what was going on with my girl but she cut off waaaaay more than I wanted. She’s usually spectacular but I was so bummed. There were many tears. And girl, you wanna talk about awkward growing out phase? Whooo boy, I am right in it! I’m trying so hard to grow mine out to just shoulder-length but it’s so hard to get through this weird mullet stage (trust me, yours looks nothing like a mullet, BTW).

    I don’t really have any words of advice for your hair situation because my hair hasn’t actually been that length for almost 20 years. But take heart, hair grows fastest in the summer months!

    Now I’m inspired to write a post about queer female-identified persons and our relationship with our hair. That is, after I finish my belated Pride post.

    I’m so happy you’re back in the cloud!! Yay! I have been in the phase lady lady, and I find braids to be a big help, a little french braid on one side coming into a side bun or up into a ponytail. Or the double braid to a high bun. Also, I like the new digs, verrrrry nice! Deportation, in general, just sucks.
