All that is Wrong with America in 77 Words

By Meredith M.

“Get girl-approved hair.” That seems a double standard…
An Axe commercial echoes in my head and I laugh out loud because this is all so absurd
If there were a commercial
For women
That said get “boy-approved” hair
And showed some pin-up blonde
Go from frumpy to sexy
In a cardboard cutout highlighted mask of a face Marylin Monroe Some like it Hot Way
We (the women)
Would be up in arms
Washing our hair
With that shampoo.
