Out of the gender blender
Just a short post this evening, since it’s late. I’ve finally sorted out what gender I am, and it’s all thanks to this mini-rant from a singing friend on FB:
An idiot on Youtube commenting baroque opera: “women in castrati roles couldn’t make it fantastic! […] I can’t imagine that a woman would fall in love with other women who were her son and fiance:-)” —> IDIOT: exactly the point of baroque is the asexuality of high-pitched voices on stage! Women and men are totally exchangeable in soprano and alto roles! HELLO – YOU HAVE A DISTORTED VIEW ON BAROQUE GENDER!
I knew all this. I’m a huge baroque fan. Yet somehow it had never clicked before.
That’s it. Sorted. My gender is… baroque. 🙂
