The Manzie Report has been laying dormant for far too long. Once considered a must-read menswear journal poking fun at the Emperor’s New Clothes and/or clothes fit for a Queen, The Manzie Report is back for a triumphant return! As we navigate the waters of what the “in the know transgender style icon should wear”, one might expect new terms for “Must-Haves” such as “The It Fag” or “Transcending Transgender Trousers”. Never one for being Politically Correct, those new to the Manzie Report, here is the crux of the matter.
Q. What is a Manzie?
A. A Manzie is part man, part Pansy and part Dandy. A Manzie is someone desperately trying to be “on trend”. They can be a straight man trying too hard to be stylish or a straight-acting-gay man who acts extra butch in his “quirky” fashion choices to compensate for his nelly-ness. And now there’s a bunch of new options. Bottom line: A Manzie will do what must be done to get noticed, with no intention of being beat up, as it is NOT a perk.
