It’s all in our heads

Fashion, or what’s “proper”, is just a thing we have totally invented. It’s not something real. Back in 1987 Florence Griffith-Joyner expressed her desire to run in a bikini-like suit, and she was denied that by the IAAF. In fact, they told her that will fine her if she does. Today, everyone wears those and no one gives a monkey about it. Here’s Flora Rentoumi of Greece on a race yesterday.

Nope. No interest in doing it professionally, sorry. At least not while I am living in USA.
