"T. McCrae's BLOG" "Poppers", "What ta hell are they"
No, but seriously people, my real point to this conversation, is that I honestly feel that in many ways, we have become a society of “monkey see, monkey doers”. You know?, and I mean, it’s not just with this whole “Poppers” phenomenon, which I now refer to as “Street pretentiousness”, which I find very funny, because normally, we hear the word “Pretentious” used in regards to all things “High society”.
But no, now, we see this sort of pretentious "I’m doing it, “just because”, “It’s hot to do”, mentality with, gossip, music, fashion, “The elite” etc.., and in aspects of life these days. This desire to do what everyone else is doing, “Just because”. My question to you guys today is, have we become and or are we becoming a society of people, who no longer know what it means to be an “Individual”?, I don’t know, because if I hear one more person use the phrase “Hella sexy” one more gain, I swear, Imma go “Jean Claude Van dam” on their ass, lol, str8 “Kung Fu Jakson” on em!!, naw, “But 4 real though”, like Wanda on “In living Colors” would say, hit me back, leave comments and reply to this blog at Tyrangemblog.blogspot.com, Myspace.com/tyrang, Tyrangem at facebook, and twitter.
Oh no, it’s contagious, I just did what everyone else does when they end their text and or video blogs, Oh, noooo, I’m shrinking, loosing all individuality,lol, but really, leave comments, let me know what your opinion is on this topic. Until next blog people, remember, put the “Poppers” down, and continue to be “Individuals”?.
Ok music take me away!
"T. McCrae's BLOG" "Poppers", "What ta hell are they"
Hey Everyone!!!, Happy early Mother’s day to all the moms out there, straight and GLBT!, “Keep raising those brats, I couldn’t do it”, lol, just a lil “Joky Joke” moms, once again, “Happy mothers day”!!, Ok so let’s get to the juicy!!, In today’s “T. McCrae's Blog”, I wanted to converse with you guys about something that has been on my mind for a while now.
No, no, this is not necessarily a heavy topic in any way, hell, you might find it quite humorous, as I do to some extent. Over the recent years, you guys, I have become a bit familiar with the term “Poppers”, a “Drug slang” and regional street term for amyl nitrate or isobutyl nitrite.
Before we go any further, let me make it crystal clear, “I do not do drugs on any level, never, and never will, I love the one and only body god gave, it’s beautiful and healthy and strong and I’d like to keep it that way for a very long time”.
Now back to the issue at hand. As I stated earlier, in recent years, I’ve become more aware and familiar with this “Aphrodisiac” of sorts, for some people, by way of “Associates” and past partners of mine, who happen to practice using this substance, generally during sexual activity(I know what your thinking “Horny people”,lol, and no, not while having sex with me), lol, However, let me be honest, I have had sexual partners who used “Poppers”, with past sex partners, who have suggested us using “Poppers” during sex, to which, I was like “Hell to the no”, "I don’t sniff anything but oxygen, “no lol”, I’m serious about that one.
What I find comical about this phenomenon, called “Poppers”, is that I’ve asked literally about a dozen people “What ta hell does it do?”, and not dam one of them could give me a definite answer. Question?, Why would you sniff a foreign substance up your nose of which you have no definite knowledge as to what the immediate benefits and or negative, effects it has or long-term, it could possibly have? I’ve heard, 1. "Oh, it makes my “Booty hoe” loose" 2. “It gives me a sexual high”, and then, the most lame answer of all, 3. “I just like to do them when I’m having sex”, lol, What?, Dude, are you serious?, listen if you wanted to sniff something up my nose that smells like “Pinesol”, honey, I got plenty of that underneath my bathroom sink, lol.
So it is my opinion, that in order for us to evolve as a society, we have to get out of this mentality of believing that the sexual organ we were born with between our legs, determines the essence of our innate natures.
To believe that our innate sexual natures and or identities are determines solely by our sex, disregards ones innate sexual nature and identity and I believe, stifles our self perceptions of ourselves and often time prevents us from fully accepting and embracing all of who and what we truly are by nature, gay, straight, bi and or transgendered.
The natures we all are born with belongs to each and every one of us individually, and no one has the right, including ourselves, to say who and what we are by nature doesn’t belong to us because of which sexual organ we were born with between our legs.
How do we change this mentality that has dominated our society and societies and cultures all over the world for ages? Easy, it starts and ends with the tongue.
We language ourselves into boxes and false realities by in which the words we choose to use to refer to and identify ourselves and others. By the same token, we can also reverse this self destructive behavior, by in which the words we choose to use to refer to and identify ourselves and others.
So how do I personally become the change in the world I want to see?, is by the way I choose to language the words I use to identify myself and others into reality .
For example: When I refer to a male who possesses certain qualities that “old world” perceptions, deem to be “feminine” qualities, instead of saying, "he possesses “feminine” qualities", I say "he is “dainty”, “soft”, and or submissive by nature, avoiding suggesting in any way, that the qualities that he possesses, belongs to any one gender in particular. Because, it’s my belief, that believing that one’s sexual nature and or personality characteristics are determined by their gender, is a false reality.
You are what you are meant to be. All of who you are and who you were created to be is what it is, and is suppose to be that way. Otherwise it wouldn’t be that way.
If I’m referring to a female who possesses qualities that “old world” perceptions would believe are “masculine” qualities, instead of saying “she possesses masculine qualities”, I would say she is more aggressive, “macho”, "rough and or “tough” by nature, avoiding suggesting that any part of who and what she is by nature belongs solely to any particular gender.
It is my belief that it is taking small steps like this, that long term, makes a huge difference in how we perceive ourselves and others. I believe it also allows the world to begin allow itself to just be, without boxing itself into these unrealistic false perceptions that stifle our ability to completely embrace all of who and what we truly are, without conditions.
So, until next blog my friends, the next time you begin to refer to someone else or yourselves as “feminine” or “masculine”, consider how stifling what you are saying can be to your own identities, others identities and the process of evolution. Ok, Music take me away!

Hey Everyone!!, I know, I know, it’s been awhile since I last blogged, but I’ve really been getting things together, also, in general, I really don’t like to blog just to blog. I like to really have something relevant to say.
Today in T. McCrae's’s blog, I really want to touch on a topic that I feel really needs to be addressed and examined within the LGBT and Straight communities.
That topic topic is the use of the words “masculine” and “feminine”, two words I would love to see gone from the English language.
In my opinion, the words “feminine” and masculine" are stifling and limiting, particularly, when they are used within the LGBT community, and or by straight people to refer to people of the LGBT community.
To suggest that a male possesses “feminine” qualities, suggests that he possesses qualities that only people born with a “vijayjay” between there legs can possess; Which we know is ludicrous, because we all know there are many people who were born with “vijayjays”, who are not “dainty”, “soft”, and or submissive by nature in anyway. Why?, because 1st "It's Human Nature", Madonna, lol, and 2nd "They were born that way", LADY GAGA, LOL :). They are what the creator created them to be.
You say "yes, but most of them are more than likely lesbians. However, that’s not always the the truth. There are many straight woman who are not, “soft”, “dainty”, and or submissive by nature, who are very much heterosexual, who are the more aggressive, dominant partner in their heterosexual relationships. This in my opinion, confirms the fact that sexuality and identity formulation is very fluid in its nature, and is not determined by which sex organ you were born with between your legs.
To say that a female possesses "masculine’ qualities, suggests that she possesses qualities that only people who were born with a penis between their legs can possess. Which we all know to be completely false. How many men do we know and come in contact with on a daily basis, who do not possess qualities that many “little evolved” people would consider to be “manly” traits, aggressive, “macho”, “tough”.
Again, you say “but these men are usually gay men”. But this often times isn’t the case. There are many heterosexual men, who don’t possess these qualities that so many “little evolved” people, believe to be “alpha male” qualities, who are the more submissive, passive partner in their heterosexual relationships, who are not aggressive, who are very sensitive and or submissive by nature.
