This is amazing...

Its so GOOD plus WEIRD, which just equals MORE BETTER! Its all so interesting because of the timing. The 80s was so WEIRD about sexuality/gender and stuff. I guess because everything was headed in one direction from the 70s and then Reagan happened so this weird conservative head came into power while all the GAY SHIT was happening so it all got PERFORMATIVE and WEIRD. Like the fact that NOBODY was gay in the 80s no matter how gay you were. If you didn't say you were gay, you were NOT GAY. Which in a way was GREAT because it gave license to straight guys to give FIERCE FAGGOTY LOOKS. So there was basically no limit as to how far you could go into HIGH FAGGOTRY because you were STILL STRAIGHT!?! Which also ended up giving license to gay to cross gender stuff and make all these wild new looks etc etc... I mean have a look at the POISON album cover, that cover is NUTS and it was STRAIGHT AS HELL! Everyone one of my friends had that album, t-shirt etc and there was NOTHING gay about it... NOTHING. I actually kinda prefer this head space as its almost MORE freeing in a WAY. Its oppressive as it doesn't allow for gay but it also allowed for people to be BEYOND BIZARRE without a label.

I know right!?!? That dude from Ratt was like a total Stevie Nicks wannabe. I remember guys wearing full on make-up at the mall with bangs higher than mine.
