I was shocked and hurt when I saw pictures at a jw friend's house of a gathering they had for all the kids a few years before. Everyone was there! Well, except me. It stung the worse because it was held less than a mile from my house. I asked my mom about it, and she didn't know anything about it. We were not invited, and I didn't understand.
Also, just being brought before the elders to talk about my short haircut. I was 14, and I had gotten my haircut to just below my ears. They told me it was a worldy sign of lesbianism to have such short hair and asked me if there was something I needed to discuss with them. I asked them if it was so wrong, why were all the sisters complimenting me on it...then they wanted those names. My mom just looked on while they were harrassing me. I told them I liked my hair short, and asked if there was something written about not having short hair. Then, they went on to say that since I was in high school they wanted to make sure I was presenting Jehovah well to my classmates.
