Long-haired dachshunds are supposed to have long hair. Women can have whatever the fuck they want.

2. “Short hair isn’t flattering.”

You tell that to this woman whose pixie is GIVING ME LIFE.

6. “You can’t be ~sexy~ with short hair.”

Because a woman’s sexual appeal is determined by the length of the dead skin on top of her head.

7. “Don’t you ever worry someone will mistake you for a man?”

So what if they do, tho?

Sit the hell down.

You looked so much better before you started spewing the hate.

Uh, get married? TF does that have to do with my hair?

17. Let it grow long,* because that’s what society wants and that’s what straight, heteronormative men want, too. And that’s a great meter against which to measure your choices.

*Cut your hair to any length you’re happy with. You have to live with your hair. Do what you love, you beautiful unicorn.
