I'm a mermaid who lives in Portland and loves Tegan and Sara, sunflowers, reading, singing, and art. I'm a professional fangirl and an aspiring sex educator and any slut shaming, sex negativity, body shaming, and LGBTQ+ hate isn't tolerated here. Other than that, I'm usually not that bad.

So, I paint my nails pretty regularly these days. I also work as a barista/cashier pretty regularly these days. A few weeks back, I had a customer come in, a fairly typical, sheltered, suburban soccer mom, and she ordered a latte from me. She saw my brightly colored nails and said, “Wow, you’re so brave! My son asked me about painting his nails, and if it’s okay for boys to do that. Now I’ll tell him there’s a cool guy who does it too!” It was a nice moment, very cute.
Then, last week, she came in again, and said, “Hey, I’m so glad you’re here! I want you to meet someone!” She then brings her son forward, and says, “Okay sweetie, show him what you did!” And he throws his hands up, showing off his bright, sparkling blue nails. He shows them off, and I show mine off to him. He smiles. We fist bump.
Guys, I’ve only wanted to cry once at work before, and that was when someone ordered a large dry soy cappuccino on ice.
This time, though. This was a good cry.
Pros and Cons? I’m going to have to go with preference. But let’s talk it through a bit.
I made up this little chart, I hope it’s helpful!
I love love love the internal condom.
