My philosophy

It’s no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.
Jiddu Krishnamurti

If you are a constant reader of my posts you can skip this text, but if you’re a new reader and you felt a little confused about my appearance, it’s a good thing to read this carefully, it may be revealing for you. First, my entire life I was against everything is statued ‘as it should be’ without a reasonable motif. By ‘reasonable motif’ I personally understand a reason that can be proven (scientifically) strong enough to impose itself like a trait in the human behavior. At an extreme point, forcing the facts and not taking account of the scientific evidence(s), everything in this world can be stretched to fit a ‘reasonable motif’, and sometimes people tend to pass over the reasonable motif to impose to the other (less powerful) people their (wrong, obsolete) conceptions. You can see these types of abuses in everything related with the religions, states policies, local habits etcetera. I’m against everything that lacks a solid scientific base and it’s imposed to me (people). I’m totally against religions, they only try to manipulate and dupe people, I’m against the way that the entire world is organized (starting with the political bullshit and finishing with the monetary and work systems). And I’m against all of these because there are better solutions to organize the life on Earth for the humans benefit, but the leaders are too weak or too corrupts to do something. Who wants to go deeper and take a look at the solutions, can easily search for Venus Project (an example) on google.com.  But, this blog is not made for fighting against everything that is wrong on this planet; because of my passion for the fashion and visual arts, I made this blog as a legitimate struggle against the fashion stereotypes and, implicitly, against the mandatory regime regarding the gender division of people: “that is masculine, the other is feminine, you cannot mix them”. The new human beens start to see how artificial this slogan is. The division in the field of visual appearance between men and women is so prevalent that it can (and actually do) brainwash most of the people. It’s even more powerful than the religion. Many people step out of the religious mirage and clarify their thoughts, but so few of them are capable to pass the gender appearance habits… it’s sad, but true. So, mainly I’m here to show you that, when it comes to fashion, nothing is strongly set as masculine or as feminine. The men and the women have the right to adopt any look they want to, and there is no ‘reasonable motif’ to censor (or to mock of) their wishes. The choice should not interfere with any of the moral or legal laws, in the real life. This is my opinion but if anyone can give me a reasonable motif to change it, I’m eager to listen and learn. I have an open mind.

In conclusion: I’m adopting an androgyny look simply because I like it, not because I want to send a sexual orientation message (I’m straight, by the way, with the normal dose of homosexuality that resides in everyone’s sexuality), or because I try to step in front of everyone. For me, wearing formally female made clothes is completely normal, they are just pieces of tissues that were cut and sewed in some forms that have no relativity with the sexual gender of the wearer. To wear make-up is similar to wearing a tattoo. Remember, there are no rules for judging your appearance, there are only closed (small) minds, too afraid of everything that breaks down the formalism, the conservatory views, in any aspects. The future looks forward, not backward. Be part of the future.

  1. I read what you said here and I find myself agreeing with 99% of it. (I cannot say 100%, as that is a very difficult thing to commit to). I too am one that feels the genderfying of clothing and looks is silly and out dated. I have a frame that is androgynous. I have a defined waisteline, and a peculiar curve to my back that gives me a quite feminine appearance from the side.
    I just feel I look much better in tight and sleek, or loose and flowing clothing. I see not one reason I should be limited to what in my eyes are shapeless and lumpy clothing designated for men.
    I also really dislike how males such as Androgyn, and myself automatically are considered homosexual. I don’t see how clothing determines your sexual orientation (I too am a lover of women).
    Androgyn presents fantastic examples of blending of the two sexes, which is something I try to do, but I myself LOVE the Goth look. I like dark sombre tones, and really love elegance, or exotic.
    It is my wish that soon, more and more males will drop the machismo and dare to wear a skirt and hose, or some other feminine garment, and realize how awesome they actually are, along with discovering and learning just how much work women go through to look as they do. It is time for males to quit being so lazy in their appearance 😛
    It would also please me as well as others for the true equality of the sexes to happen as well, and only those limits nature applies on the sexes are applied, and the socially constructed ones go the way of the do do.

  3. I concur Penelope, you said,
    “I’m adopting an androgyny look simply because I like it, not because I want to send a sexual orientation message (I’m straight, by the way, with the normal dose of homosexuality that resides in everyone’s sexuality), or because I try to step in front of everyone.

    The future looks forward, not backward. Be part of the future” yes 100% we no longer live in the 1800’s it’s now 2012 and what is called mens fashions are dead and 6′ deep, more and more men are striking out and pushing back around the world to enjoy equality in fashions, to show this look at the changes in the last 60 years when men only would wear pants but now we are seeing kilts/skirts, high heels, makeup and now men are wearing woman’s jeans. More men are sick of the uniform and it’s time to end the stereotyping we see today, if a guy has a feminine side to him self so what enjoy life and have fun.

    Penelope, said it “The division in the field of visual appearance between men and women is so prevalent that it can (and actually do) brainwash most of the people.” It’s time to stop the stereotyping any thing that is out of what people think is their norm, if a guy wish to wear a skirt or high heels, so what, if a guy has a feminine side and has the looks to pull it off then dress feminine, who cares. “So, mainly I’m here to show you that, when it comes about fashion, nothing is strongly sets as masculine or as feminine. The men and the women have the right to adopt any look they want to adopt, and there is no ‘reasonable motif’ to censor (or to mock of) their wishes.

  4. Interesting philosophy. Too bad you’re straight! The clothes you choose compliment your body very nicely…at least the outfit you were wearing on the beach in Portugal really caught my attention! Be free, be happy!

  5. Uite, pentru minunatii ca asta imi placi. Respect!
    Frumos spus si foarte adevarat…
    Ai expus totul atat de bine/clar, incat n-am cum sa nu-ti dau dreptate si m-as mira, daca cineva ar putea sa-ti aduca contraargumente (solide, adevarate, nu povesti).
    Tine-o tot asa!
    Numai bine!
