Radical Mom, Jada Pinkett Smith

I just came across this viral post by Jada Pinkett Smith. If you haven't seen it yet its an open letter about allowing her daughter Willow some gender fluid expression:

A letter to a friend...

This subject is old but I have never answered it in its entirety. And even with this post it will remain incomplete.

The question why I would LET Willow cut her hair. First the LET must be challenged. This is a world where women,girls are constantly reminded that they don't belong to themselves; that their bodies are not their own, nor their power or self determination. I made a promise to endow my little girl with the power to always know that her body, spirit and her mind are HER domain. Willow cut her hair because her beauty, her value, her worth is not measured by the length of her hair. It's also a statement that claims that even little girls have the RIGHT to own themselves and should not be a slave to even their mother's deepest insecurities, hopes and desires. Even little girls should not be a slave to the preconceived ideas of what a culture believes a little girl should be. More to come. Another day.

The comments about JPS's parenting style in allowing her 12 year old daughter to cut her hair has garnered a lot of... lets say, interesting comments. I have not been following the Pinkett Smith clan, but seems this is a progressive bunch.

apparently JPS said this in

apparently JPS said this in May:

"When you have a little girl, it’s like how can you teach her that you’re in control of her body? If I teach her that I’m in charge of whether or not she can touch her hair, she’s going to replace me with some other man when she goes out in the world. She can’t cut my hair but that’s her hair. She has got to have command of her body. So when she goes out into the world, she’s going out with a command that is hers."
