I'm bummed about Britney's wigs. It was my hope that she would stride about bald-headed and unapologetic since the first defiant day when she picked up the shears.
As one of my teenage informants offered, "For the first time, Britney was interesting."
Yeah, when a woman decides to take the crowning glory off, it squishes traditional femininity like a bug. Have you ever done it, or been with someone who did?

I shaved my head for so long that when I started to grow my hair I felt like an undercover female. But I have always walked a gender line, happily female, tough tomboy, natural feminist... But I was struck by how people treated me when I looked more femme. I look back an know that I shaved my head after I became homeless. Having a shaved head was an excellent bit of armor for me. People definitely left me alone and thought twice about cat-calling or fucking with me. Since then I have read how people traditionally and instinctively connect long, healthy hair with fertility and sex appeal. I have also noticed a lot of pregnant women cut their hair... Just a social observation.
Do you think that Britney is a secret Butch screaming to get out? She wasn't a little femme confection when she was a child, she was a "headstrong tomboy." Or is Spears simply another tragic loony-toon child-star fucked into the ground?
I think she is just a young woman. I am just SO HAPPY that no one photographed my every move when I was young. The bad hair, poor fashion choices, poor choices in friends, horrible jobs... I felt like I was completely lost in life until I hit about 25.
I wish Ducky was my guardian angel. And no, I've never shaved my head... quite the opposite. I was tortured by "pixie cuts" as a child and have always wished I had long curly locks to the floor.
And speaking of celebrity-sex-trash, you know how so many straight women say that they'd give it up for Angelina Jolie as a special exception? Well, there's a similar meme for lesbians, and his name is Gavin Newsom, the mayor of San Francisco, and patron saint of gay marriage (who happens to have a nice head of hair). I have never heard so much about a politician's cock as I have about Gavin's, and it's always some dyke girlfriend who's breathlessly telling all. Details follow on my show...
When you think about your "type"— if you have one— is there a famous person you'd make a special exception for? Especially if they begged?
Finally, in the Try This at Home mailbag, I answer a letter from a woman who's passing out from too many orgasms. And this is a problem...
