Q/ [I’ve] decided to start transitioning and to stick it out. I was wondering how safe you thought it would be to just keep my hair braided (cornrows) and just wear long-term wigs. My thought was that I could still take care of my own hair since I could just take the wig off, but that I wouldn’t have to style my hair every day because I had a wig.

I grew up in a very accepting environment; outside of my home and inside my home my parents and sister always let me know that I was loved no matter how oddball-ish people thought I was. But you know how it gets once you get to junior high, and you start noticing who’s popular, who’s cool, and how others perceive you. You know how it is. I always had great friends who, along with me, weren’t cool and popular and we loved each other for who we were. Still do! But as someone who was often the only black person in her class, who’s parents never (ever!) bought me the clothes that everyone else was wearing, who was accused by peers of “trying to be white”, I wanted to fit in so frickin’ hard. And no matter how much I tried, it never worked. It just made me stick out more, and not in a good way. So I gave up. And it was the best decision I ever made. READ MORE
