I’m an average-sized bloke – not big, not small. I’m comfortable with my sexuality – perhaps slightly more in touch with their feminine side than most, but slightly resolutely male.
I can talk about sport with the best of them, drink beer till I fall over and pull the most random trivia out of thin air.
So why oh why do I feel totally intimidated when I walk past a group of workmen in their luminous reflective vests?
They never say anything to me, probably never even notice me, but just make me feel unfeasibly uncomfortable.
And, for the life of me I don’t know why. Why do these men do this to me? What part of me are they tapping into so that I feel like this? It totally beats me!
