Okay, so I’m going to go on a bit of a rant today, it’s going to be a bit of a different post (sorry to disappoint).
Anyway, a few weeks ago, I was able to order myself a pair of Timberland boots in the 50% off sale. Now, I’ve always wanted a pair but I haven’t been able to justify paying £150 for them so I wasn’t too bothered. Anyway, I saw the price and I went for it.
A few days after purchasing and wearing them, I was walking out of school where I was the victim of some ‘verbal abuse.’ Now, the reason I’ve put that in quotation marks is that, by definition, it is what occurred. However, it was rather minor so I’m not too bothered about labelling it. Anyway, these guys were saying things like “do you get dressed in the dark” and “nice boots, Gaylord” (A classic). Please do bear in mind that these students are in the younger years and not a part of the sixth form (like myself) making it far more disrespectful.
None of the remarks really caught my attention until I heard one of them so helpfully shout “real men don’t wear boots.” Oh wow, how very helpful of you, kind sir. Allow me to introduce you to some famous men wearing some rather swaggy boots.
Hopefully, I have been able to prove you wrong as all of these have been real men at some point in their lives and they are still today.
I can sense some of you asking what the point of this is. My point is that it’s 2019 and some people just need to grow up and allow people to express themselves in any which way, shape or form they wish. So what is they wear things that you wouldn’t? Or, they’d like to be called something different. What does it matter?! Why does it cause so much disruption in your life that you feel the need to be a downright p***k about it? I’d love to know.
