So as some of you may know, I got a Snow Leopard tail on Monday of this week.
But I’ve run into some problems with it. One being that my Mother doesn’t like me wearing it to public places like stores, restaurants, and malls. The other being that she also won’t let me wear it to school saying, “You’ll get unwanted attention and people will start picking on you.” which to some extent I agree with her.
Yet, I don’t fully understand why she’s doing what she’s doing. I know she wants to protect me, feeling that the chance of me being picked on at school will bring me back to the rather depressed me of awhile ago, but I don’t understand why she won’t let me just test the waters. I can stand up for myself, so if people want to pick on me for expressing myself with a tail then I won’t let it happen. I won’t stand idoly by as people harass me. I want to wear it all the time. It’s almost a part of me and helps me express myself. I enjoy wearing it and have a fun time doing so. I have friends who will always be there to support me, no matter what I do.
So I don’t agree with what my Mother is trying to do, but I understand what she’s trying to do. I’m looking for opinions on this. Should I be able to wear it whenever and wherever? Should I just be able to wear it to school? Should I only be able to wear it at public places? Should I only be able to wear it while at home?
