Yesterday I decided to wear a pink colored shirt to work and I QUICKLY learned how ignorant the human mind can be. My co-worker (God bless her heart) decided to ask me a personal question. And her question to me was why I would wear a PINK colored shirt? My response was because I can…she then said that she doesn’t think a man should wear a shirt this color and if he does then he more than likely is GAY. When she said that I laughed because her logic was SO off center; how sad is that this way of thinking exist in this world huh? PITY…Then she proceeded to question MY sexuality by asking if I am gay, to which I asked her if she was interested? To which she said that she wasn’t because she doesn’t date within the working environment (NOT because she is a married woman), but because she doesn’t believe in cooking AND taking a dump in the same place. I TOTALLY agree with her on that sentiment; however I can’t help think how an article of clothing would suggest that I am a HOMOSEXUAL? So does this mean that MASCULINITY ≠ A PINKSHIRT?
This proved to me that in today’s society we are WAY TOO consumed with MASCULINITY. I thought that ONLY beauty was in the eye of the beholder, I didn’t know that article of clothing made its way in there as well? This belief, this notion is NOTHING more than a perception that has NO result in anything other than our frames of reference. Hence the ENTIRE GENTRIFICATION comes down to image and NOTHING else? When are we going to learn that masculinity AND femininity are nothing more than a facade? I might hesitate to agree that sometimes we gay men and women causes persons like her to make assumptions about gender. I guess @ the end of the day I can say that she has PERFECTLY characterized what masculinity isn’t…Her take on what a man is about would be funny it weren’t SO scary. This lady has a son AND GOD only knows what he’ll grow to be, I can only hope that he doesn’t try to wear a pink shirt because it is OBVIOUS that his mother is wounded because she thinks that masculinity is something that a man wears.

Hip hop group The Fugees covered the song in 1996 on their album The Score, with Lauryn Hill singing the lead vocals. Their version became a massive hit reaching number two on the U.S. airplay chart, and had similar success in the UK, reaching number one and selling over a million copies, becoming 1996's best selling single. When this song came out I was just 18 years old and though I had an appreciation for it then, it in NO way compares to how I feel about this song today. The Fugees are what are known as REAL artist, persons that took their showcased it in a manner that very can do in the music industry today. I can remember the good feeling that came over when I first heard this song and that is still the case today, I hope this song does for you what it does for me.

After today I won’t get to see my supervisor until the NEXT YEAR, isn’t that WONDERFUL? Now while this festive season is intended to honor life’s more momentous occasions, I can’t help but cherish this gift that has come to me before Christmas Day; And I am sure that God AND his angels would MORE than rejoice along with me. This has been an interesting week @ work as I navigated through the mine field AND led my ass to safety (well @ least to work another week). Nonetheless, this week has been a good one because the B!TCH from hell has been in a good mood…SO good that she bought little tokens to work for my co-worker and I yesterday. Even Though they were just chocolates, it would be wrong of me NOT to recognize that it is the thought that counts AND NOT the person who is doing the thinking. I wonder if that’s her way of giving us a token for us doing a GREAT job this week (her words) in completing the company’s FIRST ever inventory exercise? She has even been pleasant and was ACTUALLY making small talk with plebeian while offering what appears to be a generous smile (I guess it really is Christmas). Whatever the reason for her mood, I know that I will TRULY feel in tune with life’s MOST profound simple joy from this day until the New Year. This feeling can best be described as the birth of newborn OR the triumphs we feel over defeat. This time is WORTHY of celebration (damn it…if only I drank)…But all in all I do wish her A HAPPY CHRISTMAS & A MERRY NEW YEAR…After all she is human even though she doesn’t act like it most of the time…DAMN THIS IS TURNING OUT TO BE A GREAT CHRISTMAS AFTER ALL…

You wonder to and fro
Trying figure out what there is to know
In search of the illusive show
But then again what do I know…
About the hidden abyss?
Certainly you won’t find any bliss
Because it is hidden between your lips and a kiss
And your love is that song
Now you are disturbed
Because love is NOT what you have
And you search the four corners of your mind
Seeking the memories that are hiding in plain sight
As you go on a merry-go-round
Feeling all tied N’ bound
As you love the memory of a memory
Sorry tis’ your story
There ain't no glory
In loving a love that isn’t there…
Have you ever?

HOPELESS is a song sang by R&B/soul musician Dionne Farris. Although she was never an official member of the band Arrested Development. She undoubtedly left her mark and this song showcases her vocals skills as she soothes N’ caresses the soul. It was written by Van Hunt for the Love Jones soundtrack and will ALWAYS be a favorite of mine.

can’t help but feel SO sad
for them because here they are wielding N’ dealing trying their hardest to get MY sex; and I am NOT getting their sales pitch. First
and foremost they don’t ask if I am in a relationship (I guess that part does NOT matter) and I know that I could
stop them DEAD in their
tracks by mentioning Noel, but this is NOT about him. This simply is me not wanting anything from
them period. I mean even when I was in that place I wasn’t in that place. I
always saw my various sexual escapades as life changing…there was NEVER anything of me that was
invested in those men that I feel shame or desperate about; AND I can’t understand how OR why gay men would feel
satisfied with not being connected to what they really want.
feel so ashamed of the GAY community
because we are all about the flesh upon flesh…This EASY SEX is like a drug and every time we take a hit, we
spiral out of control only to be left feeling empty AND alone. When I went through this cycle, I knew why I was
doing it; but today it seems as if MOST gay
men are doing because it can be done. Sex is fun, but it can be SO much more if it is with someone
we can MORE than just sex
with. When are we going to STOP bathing OUR asses in this SH!T and wearing it like some cheap cologne? We F&CK each other like there is a fire sale AND one size fits all…
NO WONDER WE LIVE AS IF IT IS NOT OKAY TO BE GAY…WHEN
ARE WE GOING TO SEE THAT BY F&CKING EACH OTHER, WE ARE ONLY REINFORCING THE
STIGMATIZATION OF THE GAY IDENTITY? I GUESS THE SIMPLE THING TO DO IS TO
CONSIDER WHEN YOU GET HORNY & YOU WANT SOMETHING TO EASE THAT, WE NEED TO
THINK IF WE WANT A SERIES OF MEN THAT ARE GOING LAST ALL OF 5-10 MINUTES OR DO
WE WANT A SERIES OF 5-10 MINUTES WITH JUST ONE PERSON THAT IS ALL OUR OWN?
WHATEVER MOST OF US DECIDE, I KNOW WHICH SIDE OF THE PROBLEM I AM ON, SO AS YOU
GUYS KEEP SELLING I WILL REFUSE BECAUSE I AM STOCKED UP FOR LIFE WITH LOVE
& RESPECT FOR MYSELF…

AGAIN is a song by American singer Janet Jackson from her fifth studio album, janet. (1993). Written and produced by Jackson, James Harris III, and Terry Lewis, the ballad was released as the album's third single in October 1993. AGAIN topped the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in late 1993 and received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Original Song. Based on a lost love, AGAIN was included as the closing song to her 1993 box-office film debut in Poetic Justice. I LOVE this song because of its sweetness though it is talking about loosing LOVE, it will FOREVER be a favorite of mine. She sang the capture the emotion of the song without making it overly dramatic.
