So this is completely random, but I was just wondering if everyone here smokes pot? I have nothing against it, but have yet to meet any other dreadheads, besides me, who don't...?
I can't be part of this community anymore.
My last post was not about me thinking all dreadheads are queer. i didn't say that AT ALL. i was simply stating that i associate dreadheads with openmindedness and nonconformity. of course dreads mean different things to different people. that is what they meant to ME.
for those of you who think you are openminded, but are in actuality homophobic i don't have respect for that. to me homophobia is the same as racism. would you react differently if I were black and that was the reason she condemned me? the bible has been used in favor of slavery and against women, and the trend is continuing with gays. this wasn't about the fact that she wasn't interested in me, it was about the fact that throughout my life, the people that have hurt me the most have been the people who think they are doing it in the name of "christian love" i'm a spriritual person; this isn't about me being anti-religion. this is about homophobia and how it is defined in my eyes as a lesbian woman.
i think some of you misunderstood my post and thought that i associated dreads with gayness. i wasn't saying that at all.
to those of who understood me, and who i have corressponded with through this community feel free to add me. it's too bad, because this was one of my favorite communities, but even if it's online, i can't surround myself with people who don't have respect for who i am.
peace out all.
I am wildly unpopular in this community recently, so I may as well continue the trend.
Malfunctionzero was banned from this community due to a complete lack of respect and overall inflammatory manner. Reference the last two posts from alors if you have been lucky enough to avoid them thus far. I am not asking for your opinion as to whether you agree with my decision or not - I have done my best to include everyone in this community with most decisions thus far, but when it regards matters of intolerance I will take action as I see fit.
This is an isolated incident, and I don't envision it being a problem. This, to me, is common sense, but I feel the need to state:
Please continue to respect each other though you may disagree with each other's beliefs.
It's A-OK with me if you don't agree with each other, but blatant disrespect and harassment will not be tolerated.
Hello there! I am new to this community, so I want to introduce myself *waves* My name is Ashley and I'm 17, live in MA, good 'ol USA. I have always loved dreadlocks, and always wanted them for my very own, and I finally got them! Yesterday, actually. My hair is really long too, so it took a great deal of time, my friend dreaded them for me. Heh. I already love them to death, and I really wish I could find some batteries for my camera, but pictures will come later. I have a question for you guys,
My dreads are NEW - really new - and I have elastics on the tips and on the roots - how long should I wait to take the elastics off the roots? My scalp is pretty itchy (which I know I'll have to get used to), but I think it would be a lot more comfortable without the elastics. Any advice on that? Thanks in advance guys, it really helps :)
Sorry to take away from the drama but I have a dread related question...
I just started dreading my hair again (I have had dreads twice in the past but have the bad habit of cutting them off). I have been waiting for the layers from the last time I cut them to grow out enough to regrow them and I think I am finally there. The front of my hair though is about half as short as the rest of my hair. I am thinking of either cutting bangs (but I get real annoyed with bangs after about two weeks) or trying to incorporate this hair into my other dreads. Does anyone have any suggestions for getting this hair to become part of my other dreads, its also the finest and thinnest part of my hair, and trying to backcomb it in hasn't worked so far...
