The friend, who chooses to be bald after escaping the demands of her oppressive Christian upbringing, turned to the sub-Reddit "Am I The Asshole?" to find out if she's an asshole for refusing to wear a wig despite her friend's demands. She begins:
Just as a little background, I grew up in a very strict Christian family where I wasn’t allowed to cut my hair, ever, because “hair is a woman’s crown”. It was down to my knees by the time I escaped at 18. Ever since then I’ve either had a pixie, a buzz cut or have been totally bald, because I cannot stand the heavy feeling of long hair or all the brushing/washing/detangling after dealing with it for so many years. So that’s a big reason I’m so stubborn about this issue. Also, all of my friends involved in this story have always known me as the girl with no hair. Right now I’m bald because I always shave my head completely for the summer.
