Or they say things like, "No, you don't look super fat now, or gender non-conforming! You look SASSY!" I assure you that you don't look sassy, and if you do, sassy is clearly not a good thing.
I was 17 in that photo, and weighed less than a hundred pounds. THERE SHOULDN'T EVEN BE A *HINT* OF DOUBLE CHIN WHEN YOU ARE 93 LBS. Now, imagine how terrible a short haircut looks on women who aren't extremely underweight teenagers. More chins than Chinatown.
This was also coincidentally the only time in my life where I was actively, regularly hit on by lesbians.
Just say no to "sassy" short haircuts, and be a good friend and tell your sad, depressed girlfriend that is "trying to change things up" that going for a "bob" (even the name sounds unsexy) is the worst thing she could do for her self-esteem or heterosexuality, and the only reason why other women would encourage it and tell you it's great, is because they are secretly glad you made yourself ugly on purpose so they don't have to compete with you anymore.
Seriously, ask any straight man what he thinks of short hair on women. Granted, because he fears being stabbed, he may lie out of sense of self-preservation, but if it were an anonymous poll, you will see clear overwhelming super support for Team Long Hair.
Put the scissors down girl, and back away slowly. We'll just drink mimosas instead, deal?
