On Monday, Sarah shared a bunch of quotes from darling Emma Watson‘s interview with Glamour, and we all felt a bunch of warm fuzzies for our dear Hermione Granger. But a new quote is making the rounds now, and I think it’s pretty interesting.
See, Emma made the decision to start growing out her adorable pixie cut when a bunch of douchebag dudes told her it didn’t look good:
“If I had it my way, I would have just kept it short forever. Of course, men like long hair. There’s no two ways about it. The majority of the boys around me were like, ‘Why did you do that? That’s such an error.’ And I was like, ‘Well, honestly, I don’t really care what you think!’ I’ve never felt so confident as I did with short hair — I felt really good in my own skin.”
Well, ok, she didn’t directly say that she’s growing out her hair because “men like long hair,” but that’s kind of what she hinted at, right? Her phrasing is sort of confusing – she’d prefer to have short hair, but men don’t like it, but she doesn’t care what men think. Then why doesn’t she have short hair? She can obviously get wigs or extensions for movies and modeling gigs. What’s the problem?
Also, I wish dudes would just mind their business when it comes to ladies’ hair. When I cut all my hair off, I had multiple women tell me that they would love to have short hair, but their husbands or boyfriends wouldn’t let them cut it. Like, that was the phrasing they would use, “he won’t let me.” And I get that you’re attracted to what you’re attracted to, but come on now, bros. You’re not in a relationship with hair, and unless you’ve got some weird fetish I don’t know about, you’re not having sex with hair. That long hair that you like looking at sometimes is your girl’s business, not yours.
Basically, please chop it off again, Emma. You love it, it loves you, and girl. You so pretty.
