    If I do not know you, please do not touch or ask to touch my hair. Respect my personal space.
    Natural hair isn't a trend. It's a movement.

    That's an interesting exhibit. Personally I do not have a problem with someone touching my hair as long as they ask to touch my hair. Most people who ask me have been truly curious and fascinated with my hair so I see why not. I have never felt as if I was a spectacle in a petting zoo or anything like that.

    I probably would not have wanted to participate in that exhibit because of my slight issue with crowds

    Angry Do NOT put your hands on me!!!!

    I am so particular about my hair I just would no one touch it but every now and again I get those who think they are above any and everything and can do what H they want lol this sadly includes children I HATE for ANYONE to touch my hair even if it is just out and about in an afro or whatever. Do not molest my scalp!!!!!!! ugh don't mind me just ranting. Has anyone ever wanted to hit a kid for tugging on your hair or an adult for that matter? :-)Smile

    BGLH expressed my discomfort with this exhibit most excellently here. Especially this part:

    I think it bothers me that the impetus is put on us as black women to become accessible — and in some cases acceptable — to other ethnicities. I understand that black people are just 12% of the population so not everyone has ‘access’ to a black person. But it’s well documented that, for many Americans, segregation is a matter of choice and not circumstance. I fear that a display like this allows some people the opportunity to dip into black culture for an experience before returning to the ‘safety’ of a significantly less diverse world.
    Hello, 2021. Glad to see you. Hope you're bringing us goodness and light this year!

    See my current avatar, installed after I got mauled (not literally, obviously) by an elderly woman in a supermarket. No bueno.

    I'm not a curio object & I don't see people running up to other groups of people and handling them.. We aren't property for anyone to do whatever they want with anymore. Back off.

    Personally,
    I understand everyone feelings. Me on the other I do not mind having a problem if others are touching my hair if they ask and I am somewhat familiar with. When I was in a lab, I met a Chinese woman and her experience was limited. She asked politely and I let her do so. For her she had only seen and wanted to know what it is like( she wasn't in the US for long). Some people are curious because they have never experience it. I find throughout my journey, some people are envious. They want the versatile but can not have and also to dispel some doubts that others tell them that black hair isn't soft.


    "Stop...think about...let it simmer.... The more you try to define, the more you realize that some things in this life of ours are indefinable....I am one of those people that one word can not describe me in my entirety. But if I would describe myself...it would be indefinable!"

    I'm not interested in anyone invading my personal space, whether I know them or not. I mean, I don't want to touch anyone else's hair because I'm just not that intrigued.

    Plus, I don't want anyone touching my hair because I don't want them walking away with oily or wet hands. See folk, this is for my benefit and yours.
