A Stupid Morning Joke

WE TOTALLY FUCKED (Now go make me some breakfast. Bitch.)

Among the sea of backs crammed in the narrow aisle of a bus, the message above printed on a pink shirt caught my eye and ire. It is a chauvinistic and gender-insensitive declaration of the alpha male. First, it asserted that fucking is a favor done to women by men. Second, the ‘favor’ must be returned by domestic servility of the ‘bitch’. I had half a mind to tell off that guy who had the guts to wear such a stupid shirt (for what else could it be?), but I looked more closely first.

Above the shirt, perched on top of the head, are pink sunglasses. The man was wearing a cheap studded wristband and super tight jeans. He was still standing when a (woman) friend of his gestured at his ass; he looked behind him and did something extremely unexpected: he posed, jerking his ass up, in the middle of the fucking aisle.

Oh my god, I thought. He’s a homo.

Now the stupid shirt has become a stupid joke.

I dunno. I can't say anything, being male and all that.

Then again, that being written on a pink shirt means something. :p

Or did this make sense?

gino, a closed environment such as an aircon bus is bound to harbor it's own mad denizens---all the freaks, all the time, i agree.

but i'm more interested in the power struggles acting themselves out in a quiet ride: a struggle for the two aircon vents. scarcity. economics and politics and all that gunk. they're all there, in the deceptively peaceful bus.

Just pushing the gender insensitivity, I guess. Makes it all cutesy cutesy, we'll eventually be distracted by the pinkness of the shirt.

That didn't make sense. Hehe :D

Yeah. Observing human nature in its most mundane makes up for the smell and the radio in the background.
