I won’t be able to get my ears pierced any time soon. My job has a policy that “males” can’t wear earrings. Yup.
For some reason, it is perfectly fine for women to wear earrings but not anyone else. And I sure can’t claim to be a women there. And you have to keep your earrings in when they are first pierced or the wounds will close up.
In other words. Fuck this oppressive system, and fuck my job.
