My name is Holly. I'm a 21 year old female college student, currently studying to be a computer engineer. I like video games probably too much and I am devoted to books. I am not afraid to send people dirty limericks.

Expect Supernatural, the Avengers, Dragon Age, the occasional LOTR and Harry Potter, and other things that amuse me.

Sometimes I do interesting stuff in my spare time.

sehnsuchttraum asked
I would agree with you on the army thing except that they appear to be banning short natural hair, too. And the approval of wigs makes the helmet argument seem sketchy because how in the world would *that* be secure or safe?

I will freely admit that I am not an expert, and that I’m not completely sure of the answers of these questions without digging into research, which I don’t feel like doing at midnight when I have to go to work in the morning. Or doing a big post on mobile. Plus my preliminary search showed mostly biased sources which means digging into the actual rule restrictions. Which I found here: http://www.apd.army.mil/pdffiles/r670_1.pdf

Which I will totally do, just not right now. The main thing I saw in there though, is this quote in section 3.2.a. Which essentially says what I said: (a) Leaders will judge the appropriateness of a particular hairstyle by the appearance of headgear when worn. Hairstyles (including bulk and length of hair) that do not allow Soldiers to wear the headgear properly, or that interfere with the proper wear of the protective mask or other protective equipment, are prohibited. Headgear will fit snugly and comfortably, without bulging or distortion from the intended shape of the headgear and without excessive gaps.

A little later there appears to be a section on wigs (actually after further looking there are two?) and the section says that it has to comply to all the other restrictions. So I guess they assume any wigs are supposed to be well fit/sized and not slide around?

Nothing in my skimming about short natural hair, unless they’re considering it a fad hairstyle (which, I know, it isn’t and all, but I’d have to look more at the rules than the 5 minutes I spent skimming it)

Jessica Williams speaks with Sgt. Jasmine Jacobs about Army regulation AR 670-1

Jessica Williams and Travon (one of the staff writers) do it again!

This is why white women can’t be in the natural hair movement

Had to bold that comment

I’m going to regret commenting, but there is a safety reason behind the ban. In the army you have, you know, helmets and gas masks and stuff that has to fit over your head. And it has to fit over your head properly. All those banned hairstyles that they show? They all have hair extending like half an inch at least above your head. That means that the helmet, you know the one that could potentially save your life considering you’re probably getting shot at? Yeah, it won’t fit. And I’m sure the army looked at how all the banned hairstyles fit under helmets, like if the hair could be squished under there. I highly doubt they were banned just because.

this is the best thing to happen to one of my text posts

Some actors are famous for great lines like ‘Life is like a box of chocolates’. But not me. No, I get ‘Lucifer, you’re my brother, and I love you. But you are a great big bag of dicks’

This Tree Is Growing 40 Different Kinds Of Fruit At Once
This single (and quite colorfully blossoming) tree grows 40 different varieties of peaches, plums, apricots, nectarines, cherries, and even almonds — but just how does it do it?
It does it through the process of chip grafting. After sculptor Sam Van Aken bought a failing orchard in upstate New York full of hundreds of different fruit trees, he began the pain-staking process of grafting several of the different varieties together into one tree. Six years later, the result is this 40-fruit bearing tree, which includes some heirloom varieties that are centuries old.

Wahhhhhh GMOs are bad wahhhhhhh

this tree is an overachiever

grafting =/= genetically modified (I mean, not that I disagree that it’s stupid to panic about GMOs but this is…not that.)
