I got a haircut on Friday. I usually get my hair cut at a local hair salon that I have been patronizing for over 12 years.
The owner of the salon has two school-aged sons. My sister, who also patronizes this salon, mentioned that one of the sons might be gay. His mother (the salon owner) is supportive, while the father, not so much.
Anyway, I walked in to the salon about 1 PM without an appointment. I was the only customer, so the owner took me immediately.
When I walked in, I noticed a pretty young girl playing in the waiting area. She was about 10-years-old and was wearing yellow cropped pants, a white flowery top, and her short bobbed hair had a pink swatch in it.
The receptionist asked the girl to go fetch her Mommy from the back of the store because she had a customer.
I did not know who the girl was going to fetch because there are at least three hairdressers working at that salon. When the owner came out from the back of the store to greet me, I realized that the young girl was her son!
I did not mention her son and neither did the owner, but it struck me that maybe her son is transgender and not gay.
I am not "out" at the salon, so I kept my opinions to myself, but maybe I will drop an anonymous note to the owner about my thoughts on the matter or maybe I will mind my own business.
