Hey, so i know this isn’t a site like yahoo or reddit, but I really need some advice. So, my mom has been acting really transphobic lately. We’ve been having arguments, tried to talk seriously, and nothings working. The most recent problem is my hair. It’s a pixie with long bangs (as seen in picture) and my mom refused to cut it shorter when she cut it a month ago. So, yesterday i asked her if we could cut it shorter, or if she wanted me to do it. But she flipped out and said no. I really want this, and i even relapsed with cutting. (Yes, i’m going to tell my therapist) and when i told my mom, she just yelled at me and said i was stupid. I don’t know why, but my hair is the only reason i don’t pass as a guy. What should i do? there’s no possible way to style it that looks short or good. What options do i have? I guess i should just do it, but i’m afraid of what she’ll do. She most likely won’t hit me, but i’m a wuss. Also, anxiety man. Please help.
I tell you of my differences
that i am not what i seem
i wipe off all my makeup
and throw away my frilly things
cut my hair and put on a hood
oh my goodness, i feel so good.
you don’t like it, and i’m offending you?
you say this isn’t something i should choose.
you say i’ll never be the same
and i’m taking your “precious” daughter away.
you say “i’m losing you”
“You’re not my kid anymore”
you know, when i hit a certain age
i’m walking out that door
so i put on my makeup
and throw on a gown
you know that I will never be happy
but do you love your “precious” daughter now?
I am so excited you guys! I am finally going to stop trying to fit in to social norms, and I’m going to start being a boy again. I’ll start binding again, stop wearing makeup, and just be happy again. I just wanted to share my excitement with you guys. (yes i have a pimple on my chin.)
so, I know i don’t normally do this kind of stuff, but i just recently bough new products and changed my routine, and my face is already clearing up and my dark circles are fading.
Products: Cleanser/exfoliate/face mask by Oxy. (3 in one face cream.)
Toner made by Simple, alcohol free with no harsh chemicals.
Bleaching Cream by Black&White, safe for sensitive skin and moisturizes while getting rid of any dark spots.
Moisturizer by Clean and Clear, Dual action lotion that hydrates AND treats acne.
Lip balms made by Vaseline and JrWatkins, vaseline lip care tints/hydrates lips, and JrWatkins locks in moisture and exfoliates naturally.
sometimes, about twice a week, i go in with a mixture of essential oils my mom made for me (we’re hippies :P) and it hydrates while giving you a good scent and natural glow.
I go in this particular order in the morning:
In 3 days, my acne decreased by about 4o% and my dark circles/wrinkles have faded immensely. These are all drugstore/walmart products and each is under $10, and some are as low as $2. Hope this works for you guys, and good luck!
