This happened in 2011 and now it’s old. But I love migrating this story to whatever blog I have.
Driving around Monterrey, Mexico. Taxi driver looking at me through the mirror couple of times until I look at him while he’s doing it. He does it couple of more times, getting slightly embarrased when I catch him.
I mean, it’s not that I want to be rude or anything.. I don’t usually watch like this to people. but when you stepped into the car I really thought you were a guy…
I don’t think that anymore. but you know? no offense.
it’s not an offense
(silence for couple of minutes)
what makes you think I am not a guy?
your voice… your lips. you don’t have facial hair..
I have hormonal problems.
Oh.. you know.. I didn’t want to offend you.
why do you think it’s so important to know whether someone is a man or a woman?
It’s different treatment. with a woman you are always more gentle.
well.. she’s a lady.
not all of them. some men are ladies too (I laugh)
he laughes too.
of course, but I don’t want to sleep with them.
So do you treat women as ladies because you want to sleep with them? (I laugh)
I mean.. not always. but with women you have to be a gentleman.
well, you have to be a gentleman, women have to be nice and friendly. and they smile at you when you talk
not always.. (smiles)
women cannot open their legs when they are seated, they cannot fart in public, if they scream out loud they are crazy bitches, they don’t make noise, they wear sexy clothes and they always shave and have nice smells.
this is what makes them very feminine, this is why we are crazy about them.
who told you that shit?
you don’t like feminine women? (looking outside the window)
I love women, but I think that feminine thing is very much invented. like the gentleman.. like the macho! (I make a gesture with my muscled arm)
(he is thinking something to say)
you check whether I am a man or woman to know if you need to treat me nice or normal, in order to see how many chances you have to pick me up.
I think that’s all very much invented.
(he looks at me in the mirror again)
I know what you are thinking, you think I’m gay.
I cannot think something else, man.. sorry (he makes a gesture of irony)
I am gay. I love women.
look, when you think in a really beautiful woman. let’s say you are masturbating and imagining the hottest woman.. what do you see? somebody like Pamela Anderson?
Megan Fox.. ok. Dark hair, blue eyes, tall, well toned body, good abs, shaved legs, big red lips.. do you think that women are like this in ‘natural’ state?
hell no, check my wife!
(we both laugh, I have to laugh. seriously)
there is no woman like that in natural state. so what are you fantasying with? this thing that you imagine, it doesn’t exist!
of course it exists.
in the movies! but she was not like that all the time. she became that.. like all the other beautiful (making sign with fingers) women that we see in the ads. it’s all an invention.
we are in the matrix and nothing is what it seems..
Ya, I saw this coming..
when you looked at me you said you thought I was a guy, and then you thought I was not. What made you think I was a guy?
…the clothes, the hair
Yes. and if I was wearing a dress you wouldn’t think I was a guy
it depends. certainly not if you are hairy with beard
but what if I am a woman, and I am still dressing like I am?
what if I am a guy and I am wearing a dress?
what if I am a woman and if I am having a beard?
it would be obvious.
yes, easily recognizable.. like you thought I was a guy 🙂
yes, I see you are gay.. but from the other type.
haha, that’s the best thing I heard in the week! (I laugh). but do you see my point?
I see what you are trying to do. you are trying to convince me that femininity is invented.
no, no, no.. I’m not trying to do anything. but femininity IS invented: you want to know if I am a guy or a woman to treat me like a lady or not, possibly for picking me up.. (he laughs loudly). the radar needs to check, whether someone is man or woman, and immediately starts to behave. gentlemen pick up ladies.. ladies gets picked up by gentlemen. gentlemen don’t pick up guys, Megan Fox doesn’t exist: femininity is so much invented as heterosexuality it is!
haha, that is also the best thing I heard in the week
