Usually I don’t comment on what other people are doing out in the world because I have my own issues to deal with but I can’t help but talk about Dwyane Wade. Why is what Dwyane Wade wearing, news?
It’s one thing to see him on TMZ because that’s what they do but when I see him on my local news station there’s a problem. There are so many other newsworthy stories going on in and around the city of Detroit. Is what Dwyane Wade wearing really an option? Really?
What kills me is that we tell people all day long to be themselves and when they do we bash them for doing it. First of all, what Dwayne Wade is wearing is called High Fashion. High Fashion isn’t for everyone and if it ain’t for you it’s not for you, and really, it’s not worth a comment. I applaud him for saying I’m man enough to wear anything I want to wear because I buy my clothes. I am not attracted to Dwyane Wade but I say it’s HAUTE when anyone is bold enough to wear what they want to wear and most of all courageous.
In one breathe we’ll say Clothes don’t make the man but the man makes the clothes and as soon as a man wears something we deem that is not manly enough we show our true colors. So, what we are saying is that any man that wears their pants above the ankle is gay? No, we are not that shallow to define someone’s sexuality by what they wear. It is more than what a person wears that says who they are. We are so much more than what we wear why reduce people down to clothing.
Once again, society is trying to dictate (bully) people into wearing what society feels others should wear because society is uncomfortable with it. The majority isn’t always right. And when you find yourself on the side of the majority most often it’s oppressing someone else.
