Bridal Industry Gender

Someone wrote…

On sleepless nights like these I keep thinking about how I want my future girlfriend to propose to me and how pretty my wedding’s going to be and what I’m going to wear during my wedding. You know how the whole bridal industry wants you to think that girls fantasize about their weddings since the age of six? Well, I’m a boy and I fit exactly into that stereotype.

What was your wedding vision when you were growing up?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I’m a girl. I don’t dream about my wedding. I don’t want a diamond engagement ring. I’m not even sure if I ever want to get married. I mean, if I end up with a woman, I won’t be able to marry her, so why should I get to marry someone just because they possess a penis between their legs?

    If I do get married, I won’t wear white (I’m not a virgin, after all!), my ring will be either vintage or some stone other than a diamond, it will not be anywhere near a religious institution nor will it contain any religious traditions, and it will not be a huge ceremony. Also: NO POOFY DRESSES!

    I guess I’ve always bucked tradition. Or managed to avoid at least some of the gender conditioning that this society forces on us. One thing’s for sure: I won’t be a Bridezilla!

    … Beeing a blushing bride in a beautiful gown, I have this dream since earliest childhood.

    this is over 30 Years now and I am still a man… somehow.

    I don’t remember if I ever had such a vision. I don’t know, maybe I did when I was younger.
