The Continuing Story of Vostok Lake: news, updates, blogging
One of the more disturbing things about the Rampage of the South was the number of audients who felt the need to ask me “are you a man or a woman”? When you’re standing there in a bustier, short pants, fishnets and thigh-high boots and some people are not quite picking up the gender signals, it does make you a little worried about your self-declared femininity. I tried a number of responses to this:
– “well, I’m certainly more of a man than you are.”
– “which would you prefer?”
– “buy a CD and I’ll tell you”
– “I’ll show you mine if you’ll show me yours”.
