Man Purse


I've worn a messenger bag since my first day of college, and continued to carry one for every day of every job I've had since... and never once thought of it as a handbag for boys... however, it's hard to deny that my latest purchase from Timbuk2 is exactly that. It's about 1/3 of the size of my regular messenger bag... big enough for a passport, keys, two books, cellphone, camera, my DS, and my folded up headphones... i.e. perfect for a trip overseas, but pretty much undeniably a purse (it's called The Metro which should have been a tip off).

I've never been one to be too concerned about how my sexuality comes across to others, indeed, I wore nail polish for years and never worried that women would think I was gay... but I have to admit this bag does make me slightly uncomfortable. A little odd, but I'll get over it I'm sure.
