Back in the late '80s/early '90 when guys getting their left ear pierced and putting a stud in it was a fad, I thought about following suit. However, I never did for fear of backlash from my very conservative family.


Still "Lardy" to my friends!

I remember the phrase "Left is right and right is wrong". Meaning that straight men wore the one earring in their left ear and gay men wore their one earring in the right ear.

That would certainly make dating and flirting easier. of course, a lot of men don't have earrings...

There is supposed to be a tattoo code and a handkerchief code indicating sexual preferences (including, er, sex act preferences), but I have not been able to validate this. Not all gay men have tattoos, and even those who do have them might not be using them for codes. and I have yet to see a man with a handkerchief sticking out of his back pocket

I had eight piercings in my ears back in the 1980's. And a Mohawk that was electric blue. Wait it was purple. Wait, it was red. Oh yeah, it was different after I got bored with the color. My mom walked into the bathroom one time to see me with a Ziplock bag on my head, coloring on my hair and two hairdryers cooking the crap to intensify the color's vibrancy. I don't think my mom was prepared for THAT! Teenage boy in the bathroom for a long time to color his Mohawk? Not what a lot of mother's walk in on. And it look six egg whites, Elmer's Glue and a can of AquaNet to get the thing to spike up before going out. I also had to iron it on an ironing board with the pillow case to keep it from burning. Burnt hair smells really bad.

Never heard of a tattoo code. I do know there are several versions of the handkerchief code, with different colors meaning different activities. Also which pocket you had it in indicated which role you played. Generally the handkerchief in the back pocket would be at gay bars or tea dances. And was probably more common in the days before Grindr, back when jfposey had a mohawk.

I own several bandanas, but I've never worn them for anything but yardwork.

Also, how come I'm the only one who hasn't seen jfposey's mohawk pic? Unfair! mad

As cleome isn't the right market for this code, perhaps she should not wear anything in her back pocket.

No room there anyway. My wallet's always on the left side and my phone's always on the right side.

Besides, women frequently get cheated out of what should be our rightful number of pockets. Many varieties of pants don't have any pockets at all, or they have the tiny, super-shallow ones that barely hold a tissue.

Bah!

And now everyone and their dog is wearing Yoga pants, which just look like an uneasy and overpriced fusion of hotpants with tights. I'll pass. I bet they don't have pockets, either. shake

Donna: I'm in my wedding dress; it doesn't have pockets. Who has pockets? Have you ever seen a bride with pockets? When I went to my fitting at Chez Alison, the one thing I forgot to say was "Give me pockets"!

Maybe some practical brides want to have pockets.

I gave away the secondhand dress I was married in. It didn't have pockets. It was also still my size, but despite not being bridal white with the train and all, it just wasn't the kind of thing you'd wear anywhere but in a wedding ceremony.

I think that is true of most wedding dresses.

And most of the things I see in fashion shows (would not wear them outside the show...)

I appreciate the idea of being playful with fashion, but not the idea that I pay some stranger thousands of bucks to tell me what's playful vs. what just makes me look like a makeup-less clown. grin

That's why my aesthetic tends to be plain clothing with weird jewelry or bright scarves added. It's much easier to change your mind about something small.

For example, even when I kibbitz fashion sites that carry dresses in my size, they're have ruffles and things like that all over the place. Though the colors are often beautiful, the designs are too busy and I know getting in and out of them would make me uncomfortable. What I want is something with severe straight lines and little trim, but with a cool pattern or texture. Even if I see that online (unlikely), I'm going to balk at shelling out a hundred bucks when I can't try it on. (Who wants to deal with the hassle of returning things in the mail over and over again.)

These companies need fitting vans that would roam your neighborhood on certain days of the week. You could set up an appointment, get fitted in person for the item you wanted, get it entered in their records, and then just happily mail order different versions of it every season for the next decade. This is my dream, along with world peace and enough food for everyone.

I like that idea, cleome. I hate buying new clothes unless I absolutely need them due to old ones not fitting or being damaged. So, I stick to plainer styles that I can wear over and over again until i'm like 60.

Great. I'd just got over my fear of guys roaming the place in vans inviting you to see puppies, and now they're offering me stylish and affordable shoes instead!

You should also see some of the pick up lines I have gotten on Grindr...

I live alone. Occasionally I think "If something happened to me, how long would it be before someone found me?"

I hope not to end up like that poor guy who died in his cubicle on a Friday morning, and nobody knew he was dead until they returned on Monday. They just figured he was quiet and not leaving on Friday evening because he was working really hard.

I was reading about an 82 year old man who was found dead in a parking garage elevator a month after he went missing. Story
