    I was lying on my bed thinking about the toothfairy, and how people assume it's a girl.... and then i wrote this as a result... let me know what you think, and whether you'd like for me to keep posting these





    Twice beneath two rosemaries
    i wait for the toothfairies
    she'll come and take my tooth
    and take out every groove
    this is of what all kids dream
    but thats just how things seem
    so many people pass down tradition
    and it changes with each generation
    they change it and claim it "better"
    when it changes from vest to sweater
    i guess im just trying to say
    that the fairies are actually gay
    see, they take the shiny teeth
    and are as quiet as a thief
    they tiptoe through your room
    and fly off to their mushroom
    they fly leaving sparkly glitter behind
    glitter only the depressed can find

    Personally, I've never really considered the gender of the faerie, but that is probably due to me having a different upbringing to you. That is not meant to sound offensive or anything, but I was lead to believe that faeries are basically ****s. Tooth faerie and all.

    My grandad was Irish and my nanna was Scottish. Why social services let these people tell you bedtime stories I'll never know. Go the 80's.

    The problem with the misconception is down to the likes of Disney. But trust me, Disney do a better story for kids than folklore ever will (psychologically speaking).

    Interesting point, though. I see how in modern culture the imagery is probably of a female faerie (blame Tinkerbell), but the modern faerie is also seen as something positive and pleasant. not the horrible nasty bastards that were regaled in twisted stories to me when I were but a child.
