"The other part of The Hair Question was much more difficult to deconstruct because it made and still makes absolutely no sense yet remains as factual as the wetness of the ocean: Women with long hair are more likely to be seen as sexual objects and are less likely to be seen as peers and professionals. When the world sees you differently, so you, too, see the world differently. When you cut off your hair and are perceived as less feminine, you start to feel more butch, more powerful, more level with your male peers. How you perceive yourself doesn’t necessarily change — nor should it — but you become acutely aware that you are perceived differently. People interact with you differently, and your opportunities for interaction change.
