I have long hair. I have not gotten many jobs because of my hair. (I am male)
It always p-ssed me off. I chose the price and wished society would change.
I keep my hair long now at the age of 50, but understand that some people just
won't accept me. I believe that external judging is wrong, but it is a reality.
So if I were a businessperson I would temper my judgment on reality. A college
bar can accept anything, but a family restaurant with a goth, pierced, tatto waitstaff
makes no sense. We create our ghettoes. If you don't believe in ghettoes, then
change your perceptions. Unfortunately, it is easier to make bad changes than good
ones. Then, there is the problem of what is good and what is bad.
The "good" people will try to reform the "bad" or "less fortunate", and the "bad" or
"less fortunate" will be be reformed to A POINT. Some people just have a different
identity and point of view, and use their bodies to show it. Some are just drifters,
momentary rebels, floating until they find themselves. Some are just the good people
who fit into the system. The thing is, we all have to fit into the system, and the system
MUST fit all of us. It's a hard dream to dream, but we are living a vision of God, always in
the state of confusion because we are human. Because we are human, we must find a place to
fit all of us.
