A thing of beauty is a joy forever
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness…

For he would be thinking of love
Till the stars had run away
And the shadows eaten the moon

Girls can wear jeans and cut their hair short and wear shirts and boots because it’s okay to be a boy; for girls it’s like promotion. But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading, according to you, because secretly you believe that being a girl is degrading.
