WRT convictions and compromise – curly hair isn’t a conviction for me. We just had a really hot summerand all that time spent on straightening my hair was going to waste in the heat– 10 minutes outside and my hair ballooned up and looked terrible. So I looked around on the internet for a solution and found a picture of Rhianna rocking big curly hair at a Knicks game and fell in love with the look. So if my boyfriend asked me to straighten my hair for a formal event, I could see compromising on it. But that is myboyfriend. I expect that a bf/gf relationship has a physical component to it –and appearance is part of that. However, I wouldn’t expect that from my dad. And I would think it is odd – and by odd, I mean inappropriate – that my dad cared *that* much about rather minor variations in my appearance that it became a bargaining chip for other things.
