A little bit of Pink Floyd there, Stevie? 😀
Yes, I like that image too, and sometimes hear the song in my head as I step out, with both notions at the forefront:
I walk with my head held high, feeling more proud to be Laura every time – but I am wary that pride comes before a fall, and so I do try to be as gentle and friendly as I can, not wanting to cause or take offence, but always looking for an alternative.
I make a point of interacting with people, and back off if they’re not interested, but try to engage, to normalise what we do.
The wierd thing is that everyone I hold a conversation with gets it!
I have no idea if they’re just being nice – they always seem genuine and show no signs that they’re talking to some wierdo.
So I see that as me doing my little bit, one brick at a time, to tear down both walls.
The more of us who do that, the quicker they will come tumbling down.
We’re guys who want to look like and, to different extents, be like girls.
Tear down the walls and promote equality!
