    Here’s The Real Reason Why Lena Waithe Cut Her Hair

    Lena Waithe has been doing it up as of recent in her career, having landed network deals, working on blockbuster films and making headlines for her work. She’s also “buzzing” for a personal decision she felt was necessary for her image; she cut her hair down.

    “I felt like I was holding onto a piece of femininity that would make the world feel comfortable with who I am,” Waithe told Variety. “I thought for a long time, ‘Oh, if I cut my hair, I’ll be a stud — in the gay world, there’s a lot of categories — I’ll be a stud or I’ll be a butch,’ and I’ve always thought, ‘Well, no, I’m not that, I’m still soft,’ and I said, ’Oh, I gotta put that down, ’cause that’s something that’s outside of me.’”

    “If people call me a butch or say, ‘She’s stud,’ or call me sir out in the world — so what?” Laithe said. “So be it. I’m here with a suit on, not a stitch of makeup, and a haircut. I feel like, ‘Why can’t I exist in the world in that way?'”

    This drives home the point that everyone should consider: why care about societal standards? The “norms” of society are put in place for followers, not leaders. It’s easier to try to fit into a mold rather than create one for others to be positively influenced. We’re happy that Lena Waithe has made this choice for herself because it will inspire others to listen to their inner voice.
