you can’t prove that taako hasn’t been wearing flip flops throughout all of canon. he has a high dexterity modifier. he could live his life like that.
Shitty loves to proclaim that he grew out his hair so long (i.e. past regular flo expectations) to tell the patriarchy to fuck off with their gender roles, or whatever. But really, he did it because in their freshman year Jack told him that he used to braid his Maman's hair for comfort during high anxiety times. Shitty only felt comfortable getting the chop once he knew for sure that Jack had discovered several more coping strategies that didn't require Shitty's luscious locks.
