Favorite Quote:
"To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best day and night to make you like everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight and never stop fighting."
- E.E. Cummings

You tell me a man shouldn’t blush

Even if I get a headrush

And neither should I care

About things that I can’t bear


That grey suit-n-tie is too ugly

For my boundless mind

I dress in pink to look girly

And breathe in the beauty of mankind


Wings on me to grow so tall

My face craves the dazzle of earrings

But I may not get it all

So let me invalidate my ramblings


When there’s glitter over my eyes

That look turns me blind

To all of my icy lies

And peace is what I find


I want to paint my nails

And sink in my hair

I’ll watch as the scent prevails

And escape that which I can’t bear


Why should I care

If your judgment’s too much to bear

I know I’m here to stay

So let me piss you off my way

This is a celebration of the beauty in male androgyny that has stayed suppressed for too long.
