Surnames Part 2 (of 4): I Am Not My Hair

Have you noticed that my good friend A. A. Melyngoch has long hair? I have. Did you know that straight men--especially of the patriarchal variety--like women with long hair?

As you can see, the evidence is conclusive: Melyngoch has long hair because she is pandering to the desires of domineering straight men. She has no other motivation than to subjugate herself to Man's lust. The idea that she would grow her hair long as a simple matter of preference is ridiculous! Ha! I scoff at your ridicularity. There is simply no other logical explanation for Melyngoch's long hair except that she is a naively hopeful backwards Mormon hick who allows her identity to be determined by the oppressive traditions of a phallogocentric patriarchy. She should be ashamed of herself. I know I am. Hang your long-haired head in shame, Melyngoch, hang it low. I pity the pathetic victim you are.

Amen. That was my initial impression of her as well. I'm glad that right-minded individuals like yourself also recognize this.

Crap. That was me.

Th., if you're going to keep living this double life, you really ought to take L's advice and use a different browser for each of your identities. Any more mistakes like this, and people will catch on to the fact that Lady Steed is not your wife but your drag persona.

Yeah.

And your drawing attention to it isn't helping.

Crap.

But I'm so confused! If I do my hair the way gay men like, then I'm giving in to patriarchy even more! . . . does this mean I have to do my hair the way Holly likes it in order to escape the patriarchal Establishment?

The most important thing about hair is to do it so that your mother can express annoyance about it all of your adult life. Sigh. But seriously folks...

The answer, my dear Melyn, is to shave your head.

Do it, do it, do it.

Oh wait. Was that a patriarchal chant?

Dammit.

Miss Hass said...

But have you seen her new rainbow hair?

No, I haven't, and wish I had. But I still think it's unappropriate. Why, Mel, do you think she has a picture of herself on her website, unless it is for you to copy?

Tolkien Boy said...

Oooh...sexy.

And I don't say that only because my mother took that picture.
