I’m not really a formal dance kind of person, but my partner and I have decided to go to prom. Now I am faced with the decision: a suit or a dress.
Dresses are WAY more fun, but I don’t want to be seen as a girl, or as a traditional heterosexual couple. What would you do if you were in this situation? Would you wear the outfit that is “fun,” and know that you will spend the whole night being forced into a box you don’t fit into, or would you wear something a little less enjoyable to shop for, and be seen as (closer to) who you really are? Either way I feel I am sacrificing something for the sake of other people’s wrongful interpretations of gender.
