Lolita vs. "Acting Your Age"

 Last night me and my mom got into a heated argument because she wouldn't let me out of the house after 8 pm to sit outside and talk with my best friend. I'm not going to go into detail seeing as that will make this post more personal then it needs to be.

The bottom line is I felt like I've been a good girl but I still have the same priviledges as my ten year old sister, even though I'm turning sixteen. When I asked my sister for backup she said that even though I'm the perfect daughter I don't "act my age". The thing is I'm a very mature person, I'm understanding and I don't throw a hissy fit when people say no. When I told her this the first rebuddle (If I spelled that correctly) that came out of her mouth is if I dressed my age then people would treat me my age. 

This deeply upsetted me... Lolita for me is bringing everything I love to the outside. Showing people who I really am. It doesn't affect the way I act, and I'm deeply upset that it affects what people (especially my own family) think of me. I'm still the same person inside, I've always been this way I just didn't have any other way to show it until I found lolita.

If you have had similar experiences please feel free to post a comment or if you have advice I would greatly appreciate it. 
Stay strong lolitas. <3
