School for boys who want to be girls

9 07 2010

New York has its own Vera’s finishing school for boys who want to be girls. Jesse Archer went over there and transformed into Mildred Fierce. For a boy who used to want to be a girl until he was 8(played with My Little Pony’s etc), I have surprisingly enough never been in drag. I think I will probably look like Jesse, not too pretty.





67 dutch people die in flight crash Tripoli

13 05 2010

103 people got killed yesterday at a flight crash in Tripoli, Libya. The flight from Afriqiyah Airlines came from Johannesburg, South Africa and was for most people a stop from where they would get back home, most of them to the Netherlands. The plane crashed a couple 100 metres before the landing strip and plowed through buildings and trees during bad sights caused my fog. A 9-year-old boy from the Netherlands was the sole survivor of the crash, but his sister and parents died. Family is in Tripoli now to support him. It is THE thing the whole media and people on the streets talk about since yesterday. TV was sobered up  and the royal family is on their way to Tripoli. Since the 80’s there has not been a crash with this many dutch people killed. So sad.





Being called “a girl” by kids

28 04 2010

I laughed so hard when I read the newest blog article of one of my favorite writers Jesse Archer about him baby-sitting the 3 kids of his friends. The article is really funny and you can read it on jesseonthebrink.com.He said it was funny that with young kids gender roles are already so defined. He was called a girl by 4 and 5-year-old girls. I had the same experience yesterday. I took some kids of my nephew’s class to the museum because parents did not have time and even though it was a lot of fun I was called a girl by the 2 Muslim kids( boy and girl) in my car. I dunno if that is because I am so gay or because the role models in their culture are so masculine. The other kids did not say that so…. Still thought it was funny though. Until I was 12 I was never called a girl at school even though I was really girly. Later on at school I was, even though I was not nearly as girly anymore. Maybe kids pick up on that earlier now.
