What is the point? To be honest I don’t know if there is one, but it may be about getting out of your own tiny little world and thinking about others. Now I know what you’re thinking: Yes but no. I gave a quarter to a homeless guy last month so I’m good.
OK then, I’ll give you two big reasons to consider this. There is a drawing at Ride for Kids where you can enter to win a custom motorcycle for $5. The bike is a Honda CB1100 donated by American Honda and customized by Jason Paul Michaels. A new Honda CB1100 costs about $10,000 so this one should be worth considerably more. I don’t think anyone will have a problem with you selling it if you don’t ride or would rather have the cash.
The other reason is that all proceeds from this drawing go to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation to help kids. That should be more than enough.
Pictured below is a Honda CB1100 reviewed in Rider magazine. I’ve seen them in showrooms and they are truly beautiful motorcycles. Not too tall, not too heavy, and top speed is only about 120 miles per hour. But that’s more than fast enough to put in a 400 mile day and think about the point of existence. Note: even 200 miles can seem like a long day if you stop to eat, take pictures and smell the roses.
You may know Lucy from his photos on Pinterest, his blog, or my post back in February. I said then that he is the most interesting man in the world and after reading a recent post I’m sure of it. He talks about crossdressing, women’s fashion, society and changing the world. This is a very small part of it and I hope you show him some love for being such an amazing person.
“When I dress up I’m expressing my natural femininity as an image, my feminine personality. It’s not a form of escapism or another persona, it’s another image of who I am. Plus I really love women’s fashion.”
“However the fact that fashion is men’s and women’s’ really gets to me in a way, it’s more accepting for a woman to be masculine than it is for a man to be feminine. I also think that clothing should be masculine or feminine, so individuals can wear what suits their personality, not clothing simply assigned to their gender.”
“It is said to “be the change you want to see in the world” however with societies views on CrossDressing I really have no idea what could even be done or how to even start. As it’s forcing most CrossDressers to stay in the dark, therefore it is not known or understood by most people. If it was seen more often, it would likely reduce prejudice etc. The only hope I can see currently is that some Transgender individuals are beginning to be accepted. This is not the same at CrossDressing but it does give hope that society may one day understand it and accept it.”
There’s a lot more and I hope you take the time to read it. Merry Christmas Lucy.
I Love Lucy
The BBC documentary “The Girl Who Talked to Dolphins” will be shown on BBC4 Tuesday, June 17.
Margaret Howe Lovatt was stationed on the U.S. Virgin Islands as part of a NASA experiment to teach the intelligent mammals how to communicate.
She revealed in the upcoming BBC documentary that it was in 1963 when a house was flooded to turn it into a dolphinarium, allowing researchers to study the animals at close quarters.
One of them, nicknamed Peter, was a sexually maturing adolescent.
“Peter liked to be … with me. He would rub himself on my knee, my foot or my hand and I allowed that,” she said.
“I wasn’t uncomfortable — as long as it wasn’t too rough. It was just easier to incorporate that and let it happen, it was very precious and very gentle, Peter was right there, he knew that I was right there.”
This story does not end well for Peter. Read more and watch the video at The New York Post Here
