Real Housewives of Atlanta's newest cast member, hairstylist Lawrence Washington, is turning Bravo Cable reality TV series upside down with his stylish and original choice of clothing, particularly his unavoidable high heels.
His fashion choices have been labelled as "cross-dressing", understandably enough. But maybe it's about time for us to reconsider those terms. Why can a woman wear whatever she pleases, while a man wearing heels and makeup is perceived as a cross-dresser? May it not be that some of us guys are simply starting to be more honest and genuine, presenting ourselves in public as who we really are, with all those feminine traits we all conceal within ourselves, rather that the way conventions dictate a man should look like?
For me at least, Lawrence is no "cross-dresser". He is a New Male, so he definitely belongs here in this blog!
