Techinically, that hair belief is a bit more recent. Relatively, this is millennia-old China we are talking about.
Which is why Disney may have felt comfortable cutting her hair (it's hard enough to pinpoint the film's dynasty as it is.)

This is excellently written. I like the thought and reasoning that you place behind this story.

Oh, very interesting! I enjoyed reading this and thank-you very much for the explaining at the end. That makes it even better! That's really interesting that you lived in China for a time. Was it Hong Kong, or mainland China? When I was little, Hong Kong wasn't China, but that's a longer time ago that I think sometimes...time does fly, doesn't?

Lovely. As a Chinese-American, I am glad how you incorporated Chinese pingying and a more accurate depiction of Chinese culture in here. Though, I still like Disney's Mulan, because I still act like a kid :P. The poem is beautiful too. I have one more thing to mention. When I address my mom in Mandarin, I just call her "ma ma", not mu qing. That's what everyone I know who speaks Chinese does also. Personally I think that calling your mom mu qing is more formal, but then, this IS ancient China...Okay, sorry for bothering you. I'm such a weirdo.
