I’m 16 and I’ve always been a boy. Until I started secondary school I always had pretty long hair which wasn’t nornally as far down as my shoulders but sometimes it would be.
After having short hair for a couple of years I’ve not had a single haircut over the last year now because I’ve just decided I want to have long hair.
The thing is for me it just feels right and it feels like the way I want it to be. But when I was a lot younger and started growing my hair I wanted to because I wanted it to be like a girl. I used to also feel more like a girl and I would get my mum to buy me girls stuff sometimes. This was all when I was a lot younger though.
I would also make friends with girls when I was younger and today about half my friends are girls.
I’ve also been feeling gay at times but a lot over the last months.
All these kind if LGBT related things about me are probaly the cause of me wanting to grow my hair into a short ponytail now.
But the worries about that are how my single dad will feel and how basically everyone will feel about it. And I’m joining a new sixth form or college (I don’t know what I’m doing in September yet) in September and I don’t know whether they’ll even allow it.
The thing is I really don’t want to cut my hair and I might face difficulties in the future as a boy/man with long hair especially when trying to get a job and stuff like that.
So I wanted to post this to be able to have a place to talk about it
