that is in terms a word, still used today? or is that socially unacceptable, anyway? I mean the name tag, thing.. The Label, the term that makes the otherwise self-indulged yuppie white 4 squared wanna be, really wannabe me.

Fear locked inside their heads, utilize terms to justify the lack of creativity in their beds, or maybe just maybe the thought of woman to woman or me and my wife or whatever Tom Boy Gender Bender I am in my tie makes them slightly uncomfortable, with the lie of who they are and I am here to help them see the truth….

A reflection on my youth…
