Didn’t we all?

I kind of, to an extent, “get” very Conservative Christians thinking that children being dressed in drag as “child abuse”. I also don’t get it though.

Over the Australian Mothers Day weekend, I saw some photos of myself and my cousins dressing up. Now apart from my brother. I and one male cousin always dressed up as the boy, and my other male cousin (they are twins) always dressed up as the girl.

My brother is definitely a special case. I don’t think he knew what gay was  though until he got to high school. But he definitely was just always was. He didn’t even have to “come out” to my mum and me, because he just…was.

The male cousin though, that always dressed up as the boy, was gay. The male cousin that always dressed as girl, isn’t gay. Neither am I.

It’s just got me thinking, that didn’t we all play dress up in some form as kids? Seeing those photos made it clear to me, that dressing kids up as anything. Does not always mean that that’s how they’ll turn out. It’s possible, that someone like my cousin just thought being gay (as a kid) wasn’t “right”. We were kids in the 80’s, and although my family is opened minded. It doesn’t mean that everyone is his life was. One of my Uncles became a born again Christian and smashed all my mums vinyl records. His wife actually wrote a letter to my cousin, pointing out how God “condemns” the gay. Only apologising when her husband, my Uncle had a breakdown. My Gran (his mum) my mum, (his sister) and myself all do things “New Agey”. They realised after his break down, that human’s are humans. As long as you’re a good person, that’s the important thing.

Kids generally, enjoy big bright colours. So that’s not shocking too me either, that a lot of kids like Drag Queens. They are really big characters! I’m not even a kid and I enjoy their “bigness”.

When I think about it, I don’t get why they see it as child abuse. Other then their just close minded.


Halloweenie is Here =D

So the day is here! I was cleaning the house yesterday so I didn’t have so much to do today…How clever am I =D Except for the whole loving with somebody else who still has to move their stuff.

So what is your favourite Halloween game, movie, food? Oh I am so excited…What are you going as? I am dressing up as “Miss Beetlejuice” and the costume fits so amazingly well, I can’t wait for people to see! =D Have a fun (and very safe) night =D

Gumeracha Medieval Fair

This year for the first time ever, I finally headed down and went tot the Gumeracha Medieval Fair and I did not regret one moment of it. Even with the completely windy way we had to take to get up there (I get motion sickness, windy roads are a big “Ewww”)

Oh it was lovely and so authentic and the people that dressed up there really inspired me. My favourite part had to be the Knights or the “Sirs” that took up the sword-fighting.

Gumeracha Medieval Fair

South Australia doesn’t really seem to get big festivals and a lot of the music festival are pulling out more and more, due to “lack of sales”. Even though when the big acts do come out here, they do really well. It was such a lovely day despite the time of year, the weather held out and it was all very magical. It really inspired me to get some kind of costume together foe next year! Except I don’t know what to go as, so that means that I’ve been looking through some of the websites…
