RuPaul on BRAVO'S WATCH WHAT HAPPENS
Tonight, RuPaul touched me just a little bit. No, he didn't reach thru the screen and actually feel my ample bosom, but he did touch my heart! I'm sorry I can't repeat him word-for-word, but the show's crew was discussing tonight's episode of REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA. Specifically, the question was "What does RuPaul think of the boys who half-drag?" Half-drag being when guys wear women's clothes, accessories, shoes and makeup, but they wear their hair and faces as boys and are proud of their modified-manhood. RuPaul said (paraphrasing) 'I love it! Not everyone is bold enough to use all the colors in the crayon box and these boys are using them all!"
I thought there was a lesson in that. So, I'm hoping this week everyone can feel encouraged to use more of their crayons. If you're an AG and you want to wear cornrows or braids, but can't wear them to work - get them put in for your days off. If you want to wear men's clothes - girl, put on those big boy jeans and that hot shirt and take some pics of yourself at home. If you're a femme and you've always wanted to know what it feels like to wear a strap-on, girl, go to the sex shop and get yourself a cute little pink toy and strap that sucker to your hips!
My point is - you have to find a place to color; even if it's just your own bedroom. Always try to find a little place for yourself where you can be you . We all don't have jobs and lives that allow for us to show our tattoos or braids or maybe our cross-dressing looks, but there should always be a little place in our lives where we can be ourselves however that plays out. If you haven't found it yet - look for it, because it exists!
