This video is a couple of weeks old but it’s just now making the rounds in people’s Twitter feeds. BBC The Social, bringing you “fresh up and coming talent from Scotland,” took a look at the struggle of getting a haircut when you’re a non-binary person.
Enjoy “Haircuts Between The Binary,” a poem by Gray Crosbie, brought to you by your television license fee in the U.K.

Step aside, starving children of central Africa. It's tough in London too, you know. https://t.co/maExNUqPgP

Can we get a refugee program started for non-binary Brits that have problems finding a barber?

I call BS on the idea that society only accepts hairstyle that are "male" or "female." Hair is one of the most versatile and personal mediums that humans work with every day. If a non-binary person can't explain how they want their hair cut to a stylist, then that's on them.

I know when I go to the barber, I always say…I'll get whatever all the other CIS's are getting.

Ever get the notion that Western society is full of people whose sole goal in life is to tell people how bad they have it?

I do not believe for one second that in 2020 anyone in a salon asks a customer if they are a boy or a girl.

I’m somewhat sympathetic if that’s the haircut she’s getting. Yikes.

My favorite part is at the end when he/she accuses the rest of the world of making a fuss. Not an ounce of self-awareness.

This is so dumb. Seriously, some of the most welcoming, creative places in the world are hair salons.

JFC. It works just like it always has. Cut this short, leave bangs long or whatever you want. But yes, what a struggle. Just like ordering coffee is a bitch. So many options.

Counterpoint: no one has asked me if I wanted a male haircut. I just tell them what haircut I want.

I know barbers, I've cut hair before, not once have I ever heard or have seen a barber or stylist ask are you a boy or a girl. They ask what kind of cut would you like.
They don't care about your sexuality they want your money for the service they provide.

So there are "binary" and non-binary" hair clippers?

Are forced nerdy glasses part of the non-binary dress code? Asking for a friend.

Normandy was a struggle.
This is a haircut.
"One inch off the top and 3 on the sides." Wow, so difficult.

When life is too easy so you need to fabricate some form of struggle. ?
