01496: Is This Why There Are So Few Female Cybertronians?

There are many things that I don't quite understand with respect to the gay world, or maybe even life in general. I don't understand the appeal of circuit parties and recreational drug use. I'm an idiot when it comes to fashion and I still wear shirts that I've owned since high school. I enjoy the occasional trip to the bar, but it's not actually a requirement of any kind. And I most definitely will never understand the big deal about beauty pageants.

It doesn't matter if it's Miss Universe or some baranggay contest at the corner - the whole pageant thing just never made sense to me. And this is especially in this age of female empowerment and trying to fight for better representation of women in media (like The Hawkeye Initiative), why do people still go crazy over these things? And there are so many of them, I don't see how they continue to bring in money considering shifting interest and declining viewer ratings for the awards nights themselves.

Ah well, shows what I know, I suppose. This is definitely one of those times when I'm reminded of the fact the point of being gay is liking other guys and not necessarily wanting to be a girl. That that statement whichever way you want. At the end of the day, we all like different things for different reasons. Just don't assume that because I'm gay that I automatically fit any pre-set mold or stereotype that you have about the world.

In more important news (of a personal nature, of course), I've finalized my holiday schedule with my boss so I'm pretty much good to go for the next few weeks. Not that any time away from the office will be 100% work-free - at the very minimum I know that I'll be constantly checking on email throughout the holiday season, if only to ensure that nothing gets missed. There are certain functions that I can still address remotely, although the worst case scenario remains that I can drop by the office if there's something that really needs doing. Ugh.
