TAH-DAH! A rant from me- Sammy!
I dyed my hair today. I just added a hot pink chunk on the front and re-did my coontails in hot pink. Well, apparently, that's a terribly disgusting thing to do now. I work at Quizno's. They pay me BARELY enough to pay for gas and just enough to put $100 in my bank account probably once a month.
I am required to wear a hat at work with the little Quizno's logo on it. That's fine to me. I have to put retainers in my nose piercing and monroe and flip my septum-ring up inside my nose. I'm fine with that as well- even though most people I know have piercings and I know that they are NOT dirty or in the least bit unclean. I have to wear an apron... abnormally femmy for me, but who cares. I'm making food, an apron just fits... and keeps me from getting that damned glove powder all over my shirt and pants. I have to wear a belt, have my shirt tucked in, and wear long black, grey, or brown pants... All of my actual pants are those colors, I have a friggin belt collection, and the shirt is way huge and makes me look pregnant or something if I don't tuck it in... so I'm fine with the whole dress code bit.
Also- I am required to be clean, which I am anyway. I have a compulsion to shave my legs and underarms EVERY day. I scrub my face with an EMORY BLOCK to try and peel away the dead skin and oil. I wash my hair until its a fuckin sheet of black silk... and I wash my downstairs, just beccause it's gross if you don't.
But, according to my parents, pink/black hair is "unclean" and "inappropriot". If anything, it requires MORE care than naturally colored hair and looks cleaner, often smells nice, and just comes in a variety of creative and pretty colors to boot...
So here is what I have to say about my hair:
Naturally, my hair is about the same color as a lump of dog-shit, and about as greasy. It was NEVER shiney,ALWAYS greasy, and ALWAYS messy. I LOATHE my natural hair. It is a pain in the ass to care for and looks like shit nearly all of the time.
Now- My dyed hair can be any color I want, Its not greasy, it does whatever I want it to, and it smells nice and doesn't go greasy...
As for the whole "looking normal" bit- Have you ever noticed that the people who seem to be the most "normal" have the most to hide?
Take the "popular" girls in high-school. Tey're all little cute, skinny blonde girls who are "friends" with everyone and always happy and look the best... Little do their parents know that they go out every weekend and get drunk and high. God forbid that a girl with blue hair and piercings is actually the cleanest person in the school!
"Normal" culture and alternative culture seem to constantly be at war beccause the Normal people belive that everyone with dyed hair who listens to punk-rock is a school-skipping, drunken, drug-addicted delinquent, when, in fact, it is exsactly the opposite!
The only people I see doing that shit are the people who "look" the most normal!
The assumption that thier culture is supirior to alternative culture is something that these "Normal" people do very often. It is called Ethnocentrism- it is considered by many sociologists to be a form of racism!
Last I checked, wasn't racial descrimination illegal in this country?
If these individuals were NOT ethnocentric, I would be able to wear my piercings to work, I would be able to dye my hair without concern, I would be able to wear my pentacle on the outside of my work uniform!
I can see how it would be unacceptable if I were dirty or if I didn't follow rules at work, but beccause I dyed my hair? COME ON! THAT'S ELEMENTRY SCHOOL SHIT! "Oh, I don't like your hair, so I'll fire you/not give you a job/dock your pay."
The world honestly needs to grow up and develop a set of balls. Even I have my own balls (honestly, I do! They're hanging on the clasp of my purse!). I put up with peoples' bullshit all the time.
So there- You're all racists, belive it or not. You all may as well be little nazi shitheads!I'm going to find something to stuff my little pierced mouth with!
...As for those who disagree with me and claim that my culture is not a part of American culture- look at the world today! iPod commercials show some punk geeks dancing around with this shitty little pusic player plugged into their ears. Models have their navels and noses pierced. Rock music is flooding the mainstream radio. If anything, you are stealing from alternative culture to make your own more interresting! Your lives are boring and meaningless, so you have to fish around and find something reletively ok in our culture to use to entertain yourselves! You officially suck.
Good day to you, sir!
