Okay, another internet search landed a visitor to my website. The question was, “Can straight men wear cowboy boots?”
That’s a different take on what searches usually direct to my website. Usually, the question is whether gay men “can” wear cowboy boots.
Okay, inquirer from Iowa, USA, I am here once again to disabuse the notion that there is any relationship at all between one’s sexual orientation and what he chooses to wear on his feet.
Yep, straight men “can” wear cowboy boots. Go ask a rodeo cowboy or working cowboy if he is gay or straight, then determine whether or not he “can” wear cowboy boots.
I keep putting the word “can” in quotes, because it really is not a matter of whether it is possible for a man (gay or straight) to wear cowboy boots, but whether in the opinion of some people overly-influenced by the internet and garbage they hear or read due to stereotyping that a guy should, could, or would wear cowboy boots.
Get over it. Guys wear boots — especially in Iowa! Come on! Whatcha smokin’?
Life is short: wear boots.
