Dare to defy

Wisdom #65 Dare to defy
It's not easy to be a guy inside the fashion/entertainment industry, especially when you're not gay. People are constantly raining on your parade, telling you the things that they don't like, the ones you do wrong... They all assume you're gay because 8 or 9 out of every 10 guys are, they assume you're gay because you take care of your hair, your skin, because you take risks with your style choices, so... You end up getting bullied for being gay when you're not even gay, and that sucks. 

One of the things I've learned through the years is that I have to live with that, I know that I'm not manly enough for today's society, I know that some of my choices are not the standard for guys but, you know what? If I have to choose (and I clearly have to) between looking how "a straight guy should look" or looking the way I wanna look (even with all the bullying, assumptions and comments), I'll always choose to be in control of how I look. So, if you wanna dress a certain way, put on makeup or play with accessories, go ahead! Screw what everyone else thinks, dare to defy and be true to who you are.

// No es fácil ser hombre en la industria de moda/entretenimiento, especialmente cuando no eres gay. La gente constantemente te echa tierra, diciendo todo lo que no le gusta de ti, lo que haces mal... Todos asumen que eres gay porque 8 o 9 de cada 10 hombres lo son, asumen que eres gay porque te importa cuidarte la piel, el cabello, porque tomas riesgos con tu estilo personal... Entonces terminas pasando todo el bullying de ser gay cuando ni siquiera eres gay, y eso apesta.

Una de las cosas que he aprendido a través d los años es que tengo que vivir con eso, sé que no soy lo suficientemente masculino para la sociedad de hoy, sé que algunas de mis decisiones no son el standard para hombres, pero ¿saben qué? Si tengo que elegir (y claramente tengo que hacerlo) entre lucir como "un hombre heterosexual debe lucir" o verme como quiero verme (aún con todo el bullying, lo que asumen y los comentarios), siempre voy a elegir estar en control de cómo me veo. Entonces, si quieres vestirte de cierta manera, usar maquillaje o arriesgarte con accesorios ¡hazlo! Al diablo con lo que los demás piensen, atrévete a desafiar y ser honesto con quien eres.
Love always,
