July 20th 2009I love this one. I was very bossy with two of my friends in order to get the right shot. This has been my sartorial persona for the past week.
Girly shorts American Apparel, but honestly AA’s pants and shorts do not have enough spandex. They are expensive, they wrinkle, stretch out and lose their color too quickly.
Girly Boy Beater – Cotton Basics Large, I have this shirt in about eight colors. (these lose color as well, no spandex. Hand wash these guys.)- Girly socks H&M. H&M has packets of socks in different colors.
Basically I am taking the same liberties as so many other girls do. I am showing my whole legs and wearing shorts that show off my ass. In a sense I am splitting Being The Object Of Desire off from Reproductive Dimorphism. The straight girl’s sense my gender difference and the boys in Dolores Park do not hate (too much) on me.I am communicating gender without triggering (too much) Trans Phobia.Trans Phobia is an effective way of policing Male Femininity out of the public view. In my view straight male Trans Phobia and Straight Male Homo Phobia are the same thing. it is Male Masculinity’s fear of its own attraction to Male Femininity. Gay and straight are overly simplistic ways of labeling anyone’s sexuality. Mono Sexuality is a myth. Straight Male Masculinity is always fragile because it is located where the myth of Binary Sexuality meets the myth of Binary Gender. Male Femininity is banished in order to help this dominant caste to create a Safe Space for its identity.
