I am a guy and they might think I'm a pansy.
How do I convince them I'm not?

What do you mean by ‘pansy’. And realistically you’re not going to be talking to anyone new any time soon with the whole corvid-19. I should think that the only people who’s opinion matters are your own and those close to you however I’m assuming it should be easy enough to tell them you’ve got extensions in because you wanted to.

Why not?
The only real way to avoid people negatively judging your decisions is to make different decisions. Either that or ignore it.

Could you answer the ‘pansy’ thing?
And either way most people just accept changes of hair, you’d be surprised how little most people care, there are a few people who will genuinely care and they will ask, when they do you can literally just tell them they are extension that you like. Simple.😊

Who cares, bullies that call you girly or whatever rubbish like that should NOT be given a second thought. They’re not calling you ‘girly’, they’re trying to make you ashamed and embarrassed for expressing yourself out of social and gender stereotypes because they’ve grown up being told to do so or because they’re too scared to do so themselves.
People that shallow don’t deserve anyone’s time or energy so COMPLETELY ignore them. Don’t recognise their existence.

Out of curiosity how old are you?

To know wether you were a teenage being bullied at high school or college, or a fully grown adult being affected by someone calling you girly.
There’s no doubt that people calling names isn’t nice, it’s not nice at all. But you should have the confidence in yourself to not be affected by petty stuff like that if you’re changing your own looks against what you know people see as normal. I’m not saying that your asking to be look at, called names or anything but you need to know that being out of the ordinary will catch unwanted attention and until not being judged for being different is a thing you unfortunately will have to deal with people judging you.

I'm a teenager.
I don't want to grow dreadlocks because they take along time to grow and they are very permanent so I thought about extensions and I know people will want to know how I got my dreads and if I just say I have extensions they will think I'm girly.
Kinda like when I'm bad at football they will call you a girl and make you look feeble and weak because that's what kids do but how do I say it and sound cool?
