R. Eirik Ott, a.k.a. slam poet Big Poppa E, offers us a Wussy Boy Manifesto.
I saw him, there on the silver screen, bigger than life and unafraid of earrings and hair dye, and rejoicing in the music of the Cure, Morrissey and Siouxsie and the Banshees, talking loud and walking proud, my Wussy Boy icon: Ducky in Pretty in Pink.
You can hear him preach it, if that speaks to you.

I find that it gives a whole new dimension to the ending of 8 Mile.
