Gay Guy Advice: Fashion Footwear + Flames = Fear

Straight Guy,

Check out these photos: Which pair of footwear makes sense for a picnic?

I was at a picnic last weekend. The group was all gays and lesbians. Folks were relaxed and just letting their hair down.

One guy in the group does drag. He came to the picnic in his "civvies," but when you're a drag queen, there's no such thing as leaving the house completely free of accessories.

For me, a picnic means Tevas or sneakers. For him, its kitten heels with rhinestone-studded straps. (Don't ask me how I know what a kitten heel is.)

I'm an open-minded guy, so what do I care. That is until he started tottering around the uneven tree-root riddled ground of the picnic site. It was comical until the got close to the hot grills. I shooed him away. It had bad ending written all over it.

Kitten heels at a picnic is a recipe for disaster no matter what gender etc you are!

I totally get it. (Him wearing the kitten heels. Gotta look good no matter where you are, functionality be damned!) I, however, do not get why you know what a kitten heel is.

I'm a girl and I wouldn't wear that type of heel to a picnic....nor to work, a date, etc. Those heels are actually more unstable than their 2-3 inch taller sister heels...sprained ankle waiting to happen, those are. Although I'm sure it was quite amusing to watch him totter around...

I always say that everything looks better with mulch.

I guess that goes for size 17 kitty pumps or whatever.

Who needs a red carpet? Just throw down the wood chips and class it up!

GG has such a fascinating life. I haven't been to many picnics this summer, and no one was wearing kitten heels. (I won't ask, that's what Google is for.)

Very good GG-preventing disaster is a kindness in itself! Not entirely sure I'd wear those shoes though-I'd break my ankle over uneven ground without heels, however small.

Well, define "picnic".

On second thought, never mind. Those kitten heels sink into everything.

Couldn't he have just worn some sexy little number under his clothes? I guess not...not the same impact.
