Convicted by the little girl in the Lynchburg Walmart girl who thought I was a female when I had dreadlocks.
I had to finally understand that having long hair didn't mean I would "turn gay." It didn't change me in that way. But I still, by having long hair, PROJECTED a spirit of Baphomet gender-bending. I still ENDORSED it and approved of it, implicity without words, and by my very choice of appearance.
