I was just asked to participate in the project they’re doing at the school where the teachers and students are re-creating famous paintings.We are going to do some Degas dancers.
This is cool because people are asking me to do things and acknowledging my presence and humanity.
On the other hand, it is not cool becuase now I have to shave my legs. I have been growing them (my legs, that is) since November and I was really hoping to leave them unshaven. I guess all along I knew that the part of me that caves to societal expectations (which is most of me) would win out, but a little part of me hoped I could be cool and hairy. You know, like a HUMAN MAMMAL.
Although. Two other people are dressing up as dancers. One of them is a female teacher, and the other is a student who happens to be male. If a male can dress up as a female, shouldn’t I be allowed to wear a dress and have hairy legs? Maybe if I was less scared here all of the time I would propose it. Maybe I’ll propose it anyway.
