I was talking to a friend about whether or not I should cut my hair short/bob it again, and a freshman boy standing nearby cautioned me not to, saying, “Don’t. Don’t cut your hair. Short hair isn’t feminine.”

When I asked why I had to live up to his or anyone else’s standards of “femininity” and why I shouldn’t just do what made me feel pretty and happy, he replied, “Oh no, you can do whatever you want. I’m just trying to tell you that guys won’t find you attractive.”
