If I were a boy......

......even just for a day....

Ok..sorry. Couldn't help it.

Today I'm linking up with Erin from Living in Yellow to tell you all about if I were a boy....

*Disclaimer* Some of my answers are gonna be inappropriate. So deal.

If I were a boy, I'd write my name in the snow with my pee. Yes this is juvenile and immature, but this is what I would do. Not to say that I can't do it now, but it would be really involved. We're talking public waist down nudity involved and I'm not trying to go to jail. You can be topless in public in the great city of Columbus, but bottomless is frowned upon. If I were a boy, I could just whip that sucker out and write my name. 30 seconds tops.

If I were a boy, no one would have a problem with me chopping this all off.

This picture is 2 years old....my hair now reaches my belt!
In fact unless I was this guy, everyone would be begging me to cut this shiz off.

If I were a boy,  when my daughter was the right age. I'd take her out on a series of dates so she would know exactly what to expect from future suitors, and which to show the door. Heck, I might do this anyway.

If I were a boy, there would be a lot more pictures of me doing this.

When you let your sick child take a pic of you....


If I were a boy, I would be less likely to have my college degree.

If I were a boy, the likelihood of me being in jail would be 6 times that of my white counterparts.

If I were a boy, and I didn't attend college the likelihood of me being in jail increases 21%

If I were a boy, I would be at risk for HIV at a rate 8 times higher than my white friends. (Those rates aren't great for women either.)

*These statistics are from a Pittsburgh Gazette article and may have changed in recent years.

Sometimes I just have to throw in a little realness to this here blog.

And now because everyone probably has that Beyonce song stuck in their head, I will leave you with my favorite cross gender anthem.
