A lot of men for many years have worn an earring (and now earrings), long hair, big necklaces and beautiful diamond bracelets as a part of their swag. No one ever said a thing about their seemingly androgynous thug look. No one has even questioned their sexuality. But now, an artist throws on some tights and lipstick and suddenly he’s gay.
A 19-year old Dallas, Texas rapper, DPhil Spanglishman, also known as Daryll Duane Philips, figured he’d break up the gender bias in rap and blur the lines with a little lipstick and tights. What’s wrong with being in touch with your feminine side, right, rappers with diamonds in your ears bigger than most women’s earrings?
DPhil says he’s merely in touch with his emotions and he wants other guys to feel that it’s okay to express whoever they are emotionally through his XY Movement. How that translates to lipstick and tights is another story. Check it out.
