I shop almost exclusively at the ‘mens’ section in stores, but (apparently)looking much like an androgynousteenage boy myself, I manage to get away without people acting like I’m out of place. Dare I go to the changing rooms to try anything on though… One shop assistant actually forcefully barred me from the ladies room once, but I think he was just trying to get me to flash him

We cannot let Vibram creep into the fashion lexicon of our community. It took long enough for us to transcend that whole Birkenstock stereotype and, if lesbians start buying these shoes en masse, we will never live it down. This is the sort of fashion mistake from which people do not recover. So, let us be vigilant. If you see a lesbian wearing these, wrestle the damn things off of her woman-lovin’ feet. Friends don’t let friends wear ugly shoes!
Yesterday I asked the Graces to write about their favorite pair of shoes – with one limitation: they weren’t allowed to talk about Converses, because with this crowd, this post would have been ended up being a sea of Chucks. Fortunately, we have some non-American Graces to shake things up here.

I have seen way too many fucked up tats of Chinese characters. Since I try to be non-judgmental to people’s faces, I will simply smile, turn away and roll my eyes. IF YOU ARE GETTING A TATTOO IN A LANGUAGE YOU ARE NOT LITERATE IN, PLEASE GET IT APPROVED BY SOMEONE LITERATE IN SAID LANGUAGE BEFORE YOU INK.
