• Hey Visitor,

    In light of recent events, all community members in the US should reach out to their representative in regards to the Stop Online Suicide Assistance Forums Act that has been introduced in congress. This bill, if passed, could criminalize this community and hold it liable for simply hosting information.

    You should be able to locate and contact your represenative by going to this website. You can also contact Lori Trahan, the one spearheading this bill by calling her office at (202) 225-3411 or by leaving a message on the contact form on her site.

    One of the best ways to combat this is to make your voice heard. We're not political activists, but we made this notice to let you know that you do have a voice and that you do have representives that represent you in congress.

I been fighting the urge to shave my head last couple of days lol! I’m just annoyed with my hair but I won’t do it. I’m trying to figure out why the urge so intense and trying to wait it out. Can’t decide what the underlying issue is. It’s not like my hair is that bad or it’s really long. It’s just I’m sick of even having to blow dry it or do anything to it to have to style it.

I kinda liked it on me but I needed makeup to make it look less like I’m a chemo patient or butch. I have somewhat strong or prominent features so it doesn’t exactly soften my look. I felt a little like ripley off alien lol! Cross between that lady or Winona Ryder.

I’ve done this as a form of self harm, and a form of self expression.

It can feel good, but takes a long time to grow back. The phases of it growing back can make it difficult to style, so keep that in mind if you do. And all of the comments about how “long hair is better”, or “I liked your hair longer.” People don’t realize that it’s actually quite hurtful.
