#43: Why So Happy

A male stick figure asks a female stick figure, "Why are you so happy?" The female stick figure responds, "I just got a haircut." One half of the female stick figure's hair is cropped off.

The Story Behind Why So Happy

This comic started partly as an inside joke between me and one of my friends. It touches on a frustration that I have with people in general: we always want what we don't have and sometimes when we get what we want, we realize we didn't actually want it to begin with. Plenty of women that I know get a haircut only to immediately regret it, no matter how good it looks. I feel like we, as a society, need to help women in general see themselves as they are and let them know they're not being held to an unreasonable faux, airbrushed, half-starved standard of beauty.
