I hear ya! A couple of years ago at XMas celebration, my aunt (the same one who told me if I didn't get married by 30, I might as well join a convent)...told me that I should straighten my hair. She said this loudly and insistently in front of my entire family gathering. Me and my curly hair were in the spotlight for some long moments there.
I said "How about you worry about your hair, and I'll worry about mine?"
This same aunt has been getting perms to put some wave in her (flat) hair for decades now.
I was very insulted. I also threw this one at her because she's very religious:
"If God wanted me to have straight hair, that's what he would have given me."
...put that in your pipe and smoke it!
