    I see your shifting gaze, that disgusted glance. I know you’re questioning my parenting from across the elementary school assembly.

    Let me tell you a little story about the kindergarten student with bright purple hair, my little Raven Marie…

    A month before school started she decided to play hair stylist with the craft scissors, and to save what was left I had to opt for a pixie cut. She was absolutely devastated. It was about three hours before she stopped her harsh sobbing and hiccups.

    Why?

    She has thought that the length of a girls hair was what made her “girly”. I know I’ve personally had many hairstyles around her before, including a purple mohawk, which many people criticized as not being “girly” enough. Media, other children, other parents, and society made it worse. She would randomly burst in tears while out in public for the first week of her new style, screaming that she looked like a boy. That everyone would think she’s a boy.

    At one point she took off her bow in her hair, threw it at a cashier and screamed, “I DON’T NEED THIS BOW TO TELL YOU THAT I’M NOT A BOY, BECAUSE I’M NOT”

    Proudly stomping away in her blue jean overalls, head held high.

    Once we edged closer to the first day of school she kept asking questions like, “Do you think the other kids will like me? Do you think they’ll be my friend? Will they think I’m a boy? Will they pick on me because I have boy hair?”

    So I went to the grocery store, bought some dye, and spent the whole night transforming my bright blonde little girl into a plum punk rock fairy. I then assured her that if any of the kids didn’t like her, they were just jealous.

    As for you, mothers and teachers with the wandering eyes filled with disgust and judgement, I’m in the business of raising a free spirit.

    Here’s to you, Raven Marie. I love you.

    Look at how fucking adorable that kid is holy fucking shit

    This is just great. :)

So I designed and am #knitting a #Halloween #fairisle scarf. The goal is to have it finished and work any kinks out of the pattern so I can share it on my blog by October 1st. Keeping the rest of it a secret until it’s finished might just kill me! 💀🎃👻

This is super fucking cute!!!!
