When I was a little girl
they told me I could be whatever I wanted.

They forgot to tell me that people would ask
my husband about his job
and me about the kids,
forgot to tell me that the company for which I work
will have more rights that I will,
forgot to tell me that my body will be up for debate in
political circles, internet forums, the comment sections
by people who cannot name the parts of woman
that make a child,
but will tell you the cells inside a womb
are more important than those around them.

They didn’t mention that if I tried to be
a career woman
and a mother
that people would ask
how?

That trying to have it all
would earn criticism
instead of praise.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

I am going to be a woman,
but I’d like to be a human, too.

I always find it so funny when people bitch about ‘forced diversity’.

because, like, once you work retail you start to see just how different everybody is.

for example, the other day I greeted a woman I was ringing up and started asking her the usual questions we’re supposed to ask (if they have a rewards card, etc) and she made a gesture pointing to her ear and mouthed ‘I’m deaf’. 

and I was just like ‘Oh’, and so I skipped over the questions and just gave her a nice smile instead of the usual schpiel we’re supposed to give. she thanked me in sign language and smiled back before walking away.

and that’s just one tiny example. she was just one customer of hundreds that shift. that’s not even mentioning all the other types of people I ring in a day, of all ages, body sizes, races/skin colors, and gender expression.

it’s like…that’s how the world is. 

when people say having diversity in a fictional universe seems ‘false’ or ‘forced’, that says to me that they must exist in a very homogenous, sheltered environment. because even working for a company that has a rather disproportionately-high white middle-class customer demographic, I still see more diversity on any given day than I tend to ever see in books and movies and TV shows.

it’s just kind of laughable to me when people say a movie/book/franchise has “too much” diversity. because there’s no such thing.

When they say diversity is being ‘forced’ they are saying “It’s bad enough I have to tolerate your existence here in this world. I don’t want to have to ever think about you in a fictional one.”

How to Dye Hair at Home.

How-To Tuesday!

Prepare for Dyeing

  1. In the days before coloring your hair, be sure to condition well. You want the cuticle to be well moisturized and not dry. Putting color onto very dry hair can make it more brittle and prone to breakage.
  2. Survey the available hair coloring products and fully read the boxes. Consider the example photos to get an idea of approximately how your hair will look, but remember that results often vary slightly and expect your hair to be a shade similar to what you see. Choose a hair color with a deep conditioning treatment to use after dyeing.
  3. When choosing your hair dye, consider how long you’d like the color to last. Temporary hair color will wash out in just two to three shampoos; semi-permanent will wash out in seven to 12 shampoos; demi-permanent color lasts longer, taking close to 30 shampoos to fully fade; and permanent hair color should last until the hair grows out and to change, it must be dyed over.
  4. At home hair dyes will instruct you to do an allergy test 48 hours prior to dyeing. To do the allergy test, simply mix and apply a very small bit of hair color to your skin (you can use your forearm or inside of elbow) and leave undisturbed for 48 hours to be sure that no allergic reaction appears. If it does, do not use this hair color and consider another brand.
  5. You can also test the dye on a small strand of your hair to see how the color will turn out. This will help you gauge how long to keep the dye on your hair.

Dyeing Your Hair

  1. Put on gloves to protect hands from dye.
  2. Mix color according to product instructions. Be sure to follow instructions precisely. Apply color to hair immediately after mixing.
  3. Apply color to dry hair, massaging from roots to ends. Without getting too much color on the face, still be sure that color reaches all the short hairs around the face, around ears, and nape of neck. Gently massage the color into the roots.
  4. If hair is long, pile on top of the head and use a clip to keep it up and off of clothes.
  5. Leave color on for the instructed time period. Leaving color on for less time will not allow color to fully develop in your hair, and leaving it on too long can cause hair damage.

Rinsing Color from Hair

  1. When the time is complete, carefully rinse all excess color from your hair. The instructions should tell you whether or not to use shampoo at this time. Generally, a color-safe shampoo will remove excess product from your hair while protecting your new color.
  2. Finish the process with a conditioner for color-treated hair. This may come with the boxed product. Otherwise, use your own conditioner. Conditioner can be left on for 2 to 5 minutes to allow for deeper conditioning.
  3. Repeat as necessary to maintain your new color and keep roots colored.
  • Follow instructions in the box. Varying from product instructions can leave you with undesired results.
  • Use a towel that you won’t mind staining.
  • Wear a robe or old shirt that can also get stained should product drip.
  • Should color get onto skin during dyeing, wipe off immediately with a damp towel to avoid staining skin.
  • For permanent color: when touching up your color, only apply the new dye to the roots. There is no need apply the dye to the already color-treated hair.

The Japanese say you have three faces.
The first face, you show to the world. The second face, you show to your close friends, and your family.
The third face, you never show anyone. It is the truest reflection of who you are.
