“the truth is that when i was little my pc hippie parents made me wear saddle shoes and nothing i got to play with or wear was allowed to be "gender specific”- No mary janes no canopy bed. no jewelry box with the ballerina. just hippie toys made out of wood. obviously now id like to change dress more adult, but theres some semantic sickness pushing me now, boy-im not articulating correctly what i want to say….i DONT want to encourage young women to dress like they are 9… Fuck i just spent 5 minutes explaining my clothes. Christ. Hey whats up with Eddie and that brown T-shirt?“
