If you've been following my blog you would notice that I have a thing for menswear. Thus, the bowties, men's shirt, pants, coats and oxfords. I have such a fascination for them that sometimes I wonder if I am like Caitlyn Jenner, a transgender, but instead of having the yearning to dress as a woman, I like to dress like a man. Ok, Caitlyn's case might be a little too extreme compared to me but maybe it's the message behind it that I like.
Whether we like to admit it or not, men still hold more power in our society. Maybe in someway, somehow, my inclination to menswear is an underlying desire for power that is patriarchal of some sort. I mean, can you really blame me ? Look at me! I'm a petite Asian lady living in the US. I'm a minority among minorities. So believe me when I say I have had my own share of challenges, condescending tones and underestimation. And although it's been hard at times, it's ok because those challenges have made me who I am today.
I think it's normal for anyone to have transgender tendencies and I applaud people who are not afraid to explore and even welcome that part of our human psyche. As humans, we are painfully complex than we realize. And now that times are changing, so does our mindset. An open mind never ceases to learn but a closed one will definitely be left behind. Keep it open people!
When you have an open mind, an open heart will follow.
P.S. I cannot help but pose with my little boy. He's sooooooo FUN!!!
