dude looks like a lady

     The gender bender blunder leaves some queasy of the mere mention of the query- when why was Tootsie so well received? 
     Was is the over the top cult fantantism of Rocky Horror Picture show and Tim Curry's portrayal of our beloved Dr. Frankenfurter, done in such a theatrical way, that we were able to avoid the issue of sex, he, or she all together?
    And why the hot button topic now when I mention the nuance of a thought to one of my dearly respected, careful I know where I stand photographers...
    The idea of shooting one of our in the spotlight starlets... And specifically my desire to shoot an artist... The most omnipotent dictatorial chauvinistic womanising males... Cross dressed as women.. And shot artfully, authentically and beautifully... 
    An artist to "earn" such a title, as the womanising egotistical "asshole" so to speak... To take them out of their comfort zone of the bullshit facade they have created, and get them into that vulnerable state- and shoot them.... That's when a piece of art is truly made. With authenticity, and vulnerability. Both difficult to obtain, but when achieved... That's when we all hold our breaths- and become speechless... Xo
