Now I’m ok in my relationship with my wife (she who must be obeyed) I’m free to express myself much more easily. There is still the balance to be struck in the wider community which is more difficult. In some respects not feeling the need to fully present as a woman is more complicated. Rather than trying to move from one norm to another effectively I’m rejecting all norms and just wanting to be different, an interesting but quite daunting prospect.
Some small things I’ve always done. I carry a handbag. You could regard it as a man bag but it’s quite femme. I have manicured and clear varnished my nails for years. I visit the local beauty salon for massages and manicures. Since the first lockdown my hair has been growing out and now is shoulder length and swept back from my face. I usually hold it in place with a metal hair band across the top. It has created some comments from neighbours but they are beginning to get used to it.
Last week I spoke with several of my neighbours about my hair. I told them I’m considering getting highlights put in. I didn’t ask if they approved or whether I should but rather sought their opinion on colour. After some discussion bright blue seems to be the consensus which I quite like. One of the girls said she is getting red highlights to which I replied that with my silvery hair I would risk it turning out pink which might be just too much. We all laughed.
So perhaps when they see me with after my next visit to the hairdresser they will just go oh look he did the blue highlights we suggested. Wouldn’t that be nice.
