I spent a startlingly long amount of time thinking about this. If a woman can tell her boyfriend to shave his beard off, then logically a man can tell his girlfriend to straighten her hair. It should be that simple, right?
But it's not. I'm not sure why, exactly, but it's not. I feel as if a woman expressing her preferences for a man's appearance is fine, but a man doing the same is bossy and chauvinistic. I feel like a guy making a demand about how a woman should look is a throwback to a less friendly time.
I suppose what you should do ultimately depends on how you interpret his request. If it's a "you look beautiful all the time, but I love when your hair is straight" type thing, then I say indulge his desire if you want to. But if it's a "you're only attractive when your hair is straight" type thing (which I have a nasty feeling it might be), then I think you shouldn't do it. And beyond that, I think you should break up with him because he's being selfish and treating you like a dress-up doll.
Ladies, what are your thoughts? How do you take requests to change your appearance from men?
