You seem to miss the point. This is similar to a posting I had just written in one of the more recent entries.
Morgan has embraced the philosophy of community property. Her hair and appearance are not her own to modify. How she looks not only affects her, but those around her–it’s a reflection of her family, her community, her country, her being as a citizen of the world. Decision by committee will provide her with the color that will be of greatest benefit to her and her peers. By involving them and engaging them in this process, she has opened herself up to their opinions and hopefully they will reciprocate–further embedding their personalities into the collective power of the community. A strong community creates a strong individual.
Doug and Canaduck: LMAO! awesome…
meg: I was totally going to say that too. It just makes these posts all the more lame and annoying.
For some reason, I thought Morgan is a dude. Either way, s/he clearly already has a frikkin’ color choice, since s/he kept repeating it, so just dye your damn hair and STFU, until one week later when the shit washes out and you get to have your poll all over again. How boring is your life, anyways??
I’ve been using Manic Panic monthly for over a year and this just pisses. me. off. It’s hilarious, but so, so sad. I dye my hair all the time but I don’t think I’ve EVER asked ANYONE to pick a color for me. Shave your head and delete your account.
I recognized this instantly. Morgan is a dude. It’s been 6 weeks and his hair is still (barely) two shades of blue. I can also say that in all the years I have known Morgan, not once has he ever shaved his head.
WTF is a “parent interview”? Can we change parents at a certain point in life? Is she giving her kid up and looking for new parents for it? That may be a little more pressing than your frigging hair dye, which you’ll just be changing in 2 weeks anyhow.
