I Do Not Cover. That has been my policy from the beginning of my plain dress 'experiment'. I'm not Amish-Mennonite-Muslim-Jewish Orthodox. I'm not a Mormon in a temple prayer circle. I'm not religiously 'required' to cover, and as a feminist I resist on principle the idea that my head/hair should be covered to hide it from lusty men. I have thought this out carefully, and adamantly concluded that I Do Not Cover.
BUT...my boyfriend has a small patch on the side of his face, skin cancer the doctor says, from half a century of too much sun. It will have to be 'removed' (ouch).
Which got me to thinking about maybe a sun bonnet. Just to be safe. And practical.
And strolling through the internet in search of sunbonnets I naturally came upon some caps that might certainly be useful to keep dust and straw and other farm schmutz out of my long and growing hair.
And the longer my hair grows the more in the way it is....so I mostly wear it pinned up, and it has a habit of gradually working it's wayout of the bun in a few spots. A simple cap would keep it more tidy.
Which is how I found myself at Christian Coverings, ordering a sunbonnet and a couple of simple little caps....just to make my life easier. And some good sturdy hairpins because my drugstore ones are too flimsy. And some tiny covering pins to keep the caps from sliding off.
But this is just to make my life easier, you understand, because I'm a feminist and therefore I Do Not Cover.
