I've also been referred to that way... with pride. It's nice not to have to put on macho bullshit airs all your life. Proves that you know who you are and are confident.

I need a resume boost. Where do I put this??

No, you REALLY belong. Plus I'm trying to get in with the Manhattan literary circle...figured this couldn't hurt. Do you know Ira Glass personally... any NEW YORKER writers??

WHY do I have to erase Bruce Injection and type in Bruce Perreault every time I log in. AND what's up with that other little blog thing you run???

I think the ZEROS would give us a lot of attitude. Weren't they kind of "rock Stars"? They were our predecessors though.

I always like to play with new, young, bands that make people crazy and don't mind going on first.

I don't know Joe... but this dialogue is a good start.

What do you mean about the blog, Bruce? It shat the bed on Thursday -- again! -- and switched off commenting on all the posts, but it should be OK now.

Is the Injections thread not taking more comments? Maybe 700 is the limit ... If so, we can start an Injections II post.

Talk to me.

OK, Bruce -- I just went and kicked something else in the blog control room. Try again.

Now, where are you trying to log in where it says "Bruce Injection" and you want to be Perreault? I'm seeing nothing.

OK you ARE the man. All worky good. BUT. I think I'll email you re: my different names/passwords.

I really believe there is a control room somewhere and you DO kick things to make them work.

Thanks man.

Sorry girls- androgyny is just a fad- yet another fashion statement that lets the skinny kids get girls. I've known who I am and have been confident all my years, macho bullshit and all. winking smiley

Toby: No, no -- I don't have the neat-and-petite thing going on ... I think his observation had more to do with my penchant for gushin', cryin' and huggin'! And ever since I supervised Elle's Web site, I do tend to refer to stuff as "amaaaaaaazing." And I call people "hon" a lot.

Who watches "Project Runway"? (Telling question in itself, ain't it?) That big guy, Chris, last season who makes jokes and does all the theatrical designs is a little close for comfort. :-)

Oh, and a southern friend's mom who hadn't spent much time in the urban north thought I was Harvey Fierstein! So ... Like that.

PS: I discovered in seventh grade that the surest way to avoid a fight was to pucker up and start threatening to KISS the guy. I used it a few times, chasing some kid around the playground while begging for just one little smooch!

Yeah I agree with MATT - not androgynous at all! FAR from it. Just happy not being a stereotypical "MANLY MAN". Don't have to watch sports, fight with guys, or abuse girls to prove how tough you are.

Restraint and control takes more inner, personal, strength than succumbing to primitive urges.

Now, see I'm such a WASP. I prefer Susan Sarandon and tiny sandwiches of cream cheese and chives. Or better yet, scones... buttermilk of course, preferably with currants.

In my Episcopalian world there was a lot of Navy blue blazers, corduroy, denim skirts and pearls. Singing Old Hundredth, That Easter Day With Joy Was Bright, Ye Watchers and Ye Holy Ones, Victimae Pachalae Laudes, the Pange Lingua....all between the wormwood and the gall.

Little New England towns. White steeples, three hundred year old homes ... the men can all sail, the women work for charitable causes...no one talks about their cancer.

I don't watch sports- never have. I treat girls with the utmost respect. And I fight with guys because it's fun. I NEVER fight with anyone who doesn't want to fight- I actually make it a habit to let them find me- that's just good business. It's been a long time since I had to prove I was tough. Using the restraint and control to choose your battles wisely, and standing up and taking on your foes also takes a modicum of strength.

I am thinking of reclaiming the term "sissy" as a personal expression of empowerment. Anybody else want in?

I hope Bruce knows I'm just being an ass and playing the devil's advocate, as every good punk is obligated to. winking smiley

As my gay yoga teacher neighbor says (over and over and oooverrrr): It's all about the love! (One day I told him I was going to write that on a brick and throw it through his window.)

The nekkid yoga thing makes me skeptical. It sounds sweaty and gassy and ... dangly.

At my age, gimme some comfy sweats and a mellow environment. And perhaps a crew of handlers with a winch.

PS: Do not bring the kids to "Avenue Q" unless you want them to see Muppets having athletic intercourse in a smorgasbord of positions while a live actor portraying Gary Coleman brandishes a mop suggestively while urging them to get LOUD.

We went with Nancy's sister and her 23-year-old daughter, and even that was a little squirmy! LOL
