Man Purses (something silly)
So, a friend of mine told me he bought a man purse. A what? Yes, an actual item called a man purse. Now, if a man wants to carry a purse, I have no real problem with that until I start thinking about it. Why not a satchel? What about a backpack? Did you ever consider a briefcase? Why not something like a gym bag or a tote that does not resemble a purse?
I only ask this because it seems to me that it would make your life much easier. Our society does not seem to be ready for men in purses. Then again, I have no problem with transgender individuals, and sometimes they carry purses. Why should I care? Do I feel threatened?
I guess to answer this, yes, I do. I don't care if my friend carries one, and I would even walk with them in day light down a busy street. Am I afraid of being called a queer? Hell, I have been called worse. No, that is not it. I am not sure what it is. I am just attracted to men, manly men. And hey, if I don't want to carry a purse, I won't. And I will let my friends do what they want. That does not make them less of a man. And, I need to get over it. Maybe I should get one after all. Nah, Land's End has the backpack I want.
