so i'm moving to california soon.
my dad is all up my ass about my hair. he's telling me that if i want a decent job, then i have to get rid of my dreadlocks.
i told him that if a job can't accept my hair, then i don't want to work there anyway. he keeps telling me that i'm making things harder for myself if i see it like that.

i'm really pissed off at my dad's harcore republican conservative views about life. i'm sorry that i think my hair doesn't matter. i'm sorry that i think appearance isn't everything. i wish everybody saw it that way. and my dreadlocks shouldn't be a sure fire sign that i'm
a) a drug addict (which i'm not)
b) irresponsible (which is far from the truth)
c) scarey (i'm quite the opposite)
or
d) not capable of someone with un-knotted hair is. (we all know this isn't true.)

he's really pissing me off. i wish he would open up his mind and accept the fact that i'm not getting rid of them.

(he even put words in my mouth! he told me that i said i'd get rid of them! i never said anything REMOTELY close to that!
