Eternal inspiration Millie Bobby Brown, the tiny legend who brought iconic Stranger Things character Eleven to life, just keeps on bein’ great. Today’s case in point: she’s on Twitter talking about how cool and awesome it is to shave your damn head, and elegantly unpacking feminine performativity at the same time.

This might not seem like much, but in a culture that’s only recently loosened its death-grip on standards of femininity that require long, flowing tresses, it’s kind of a big deal to have a cultural figure that’s admired by so many come out in support of fucking with gender norms.

A whole wave of shaved-head supporters has risen up in response to these tweets:

This kid is 13. Rude of her to hog all the wisdom, tbqh.

People are responding in droves with pics and stories of their own head-shaving liberation. It’s probably the most heartwarming discussion centred on hairstyles you’ll read today.

Btw, Em Ratajkowski? This is why people got the shits with that infamous Insta caption. No-one needs hair to be feminine or beautiful.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go look meaningfully at my hair clippers.
