Backlash from wallet and chain

I got a smart-aleck remark yesterday on Facebook. It was in response to a status update I wrote about ordering a wallet and chain. The person quipped that I should get a mullet to complete the look. Heh.

Today should be interesting because I’m wearing it to work. It arrived on Sunday in the mail. I posted about it and put up a photo of it here on my blog, along with some thoughts on its symbolic references.

It’s interesting to me that I feel somewhat like I’m violating a gender norm by having a chain dangling on the side of my pants and having a bulge showing in my back pocket.
