Remember when Felicity cut her hair and people freaked the eff out
I do not. However, I am watching the show for the first time 15 years later with vague pop cultural awareness of Felicity cutting her hair and people going bonkers. They even blame her haircut for ratings going down. This is FUCKING CRAZY! Seriously, she cut her hair and people stopped watching? I mean, this is a show about a young woman trying to discover her identity. She moves to New York on a whim to follow a boy, but realizes she has never really thought about herself outside of being her parent’s daughter. The whole first year she is defining herself through her friendships and her relationships. She is still struggling to find her identity. Then, she makes this huge decision. She decides to cut her hair. She is still struggling to find her own identity and it is a drastic moment for her. For people to not see and understand that … those people are jerks. A few months later, Felicity breaks down and tells her counselor that she hates her haircut. Maybe this was to appease fans. *wink wink, we know you hate it but Felicity hates it too, please come back* However, the moment is truly devastating. Here is a woman who has been struggling to define herself, to learn to make her own decisions in life … and this drastic change that she made, hoping it would make a difference, is perhaps a disaster. The anxiety of young adulthood is Felicity’s haircut.
