Today Rama was bullied by a bunch of neighborhood kids. She was at Tita Honey's house. When she went out to get something from the store with another cousin, kids called out to her "Bakla!" I suppose it was because of her super-short hair. She cried. A lot.
Tita Honey tried to console her. "Mga abnoy 'yun." And then they went back outside. Honey started pointing out what a bunch of losers the other kids were. Eventually, Rama recovered. On the phone with her, she told me the story. At first, she said "Gusto ko na lang, long hair..." I said ok, but still pointed out that a lot of girls in the family had short hair and it was OK. At the end of the conversation, she was fine again with her short hair. Kids can be so cruel.
