I suppose it is fair to say that I have tried a few things in my life. When speaking of experience I am generally in favor of walking at least around the block in someone else’s shoes.*
I bring this upon myself. I am responsible for this. I asked, nay, pleaded** for more and more bike porn. Of any nature. Regardless of other considerations.
And yet, I cant shake the feeling of unease that comes with this.
It all just goes to show you that we all can take offense now and again. And that it is ok to have boundaries, and that when you find something that is a little… uh, creepy, that only means that we have some pretty fucked up childhood experiences we must work to ignore better.
With that I propose we go to the bar. In Portland, The Vern is still serving pints of Deadguy Ale for $2 every Tuesday. A couple of those really dulls the pain.
*which makes me think that a great pickup line could be, “Nice shoes, wanna walk around the block?”
**More pleading is coming. Get your fresh ideas ready and make me blush.
