Conventional is a good fallback position, isn’t it?

Sometimes he wears a turban, accentuates his soft features with ethnic jewelry. His feminine figure is best defined in his skinny jeans. With his nerdy glasses and scruffy beard it creates somewhat an unusual look.   The one that attracts puzzled stares and amused giggles.  As he applies his eyeliner, he is convinced it’s going to be a good day.
A day lined with judgmental whispers, hurting remarks, disgusted glances and angry curses – it’s still a good day. At least he managed to keep his smile intact.
He could have avoided the unfortunate reality by confirming to its demands. He could have bought their acceptance by living the definition of the norm.
After all, conventional is a good fallback position, isn’t it?
Why is it normal for girls to wrap their head is doeks and line their eyes?
