I Love a Man in Uniform
November 15, 2007
Some pics here of a uniform fetish cocktail party in Long Beach, emphasis on the “cocktail party.” I learned two things about myself that night: 1) cocktail parties are skull-clutchingly dull and 2) only men with a soldierly physique can really pull off the soldier/cop outfit, especially if it’s made entirely of leather.
But I think it’s important to show how militarism shades a lot of different aspects of US culture and is not just a Rambo/GI Joe thing; it’s everywhere. It doesn’t recognize boundaries; that’s why the rise of it is so interesting to me.
