That Could’ve Been My Photo

tuxedoI’ve been fond of dressing in “traditional boys’ clothing” my entire life. My mother couldn’t get me to wear a dress; she said that even as a child, I always dressed myself as if I was “about to go hunting.”

My junior year, I went to dances wearing dress pants and ties; I shaved my head near the end of the year for the fun of it and my senior picture features red spikes. OK, they were sort of girly spikes, but they were spikes just the same. If my school had refused to put my picture in the yearbook on such grounds, I probably wouldn’t have cared much; however, that doesn’t make it okay to do–and most seniors are pretty interested in their yearbook picture.
