Fur on Men and Women.
Taking the bus during rush hour today, there was a huge hooded puffy
quilt of a dozen dead raccoons being worn by someone who was blocking
the doors. It was only after I said “excuse me please, Miss” that I
realized it was on the shoulders of a 40 something business executive
who was obviously upset that I mistook his expensive status symbol for
something that you’d find in the woman’s aisle at The Bay. I was glad
that I was wearing my suit and a stern look because he was just about
ready to take a swing at me when he turned around to correct me & let
me off the bus.
That’s it! I have had it with men wearing big fur coats and I have
now declared it a fashion faux-pas. If you are a guy and want to wear
fur, that’s fine with me, go ahead… just let it be known that 1)it
is no longer fashionable and 2)you have no right to be upset should
someone with my set of “pre-conceived notions” happens to mistake you
for a woman. Perhaps I’m way off on this issue, perhaps I’ve lead a
sheltered life in some far-off place where women wear big fur coats
and the men wear whatever else they could find around the house to
keep them warm — anything other than fur, of course. Feel free to
correct me with your comments below.
