Solange’s new haircut has been all the hype to the point where it was #3 Trending Topic on Twitter. Folks talked about her hair more than they discussed the Iran Elections & Obama’s new healthcare plan. Sad? Definitely. Entertaining? Absolutely. So my letter is to Beyonce’s shadow Solange.

Dear Solange,

As of last week, I’m a new fan of yours. Yes, I’ve always thought you’ve tried way too hard to be president of the “I’m not Beyoncé” Club.

I can already see the three cheesy, forced smiles right now.

Once upon a time, not very long ago, my mother had a conversation with a friend about teaching children about sex. My mother had just signed a permission slip for me to watch a video about puberty presented by my health teacher and my mother’s friend was shocked Mama Snob had allowed this transgression to take place.

“But if you teach them about it they’ll want to do it!” she shrieked to my mother’s dismay.

And she wasn’t the only parent shrieking.
