The pink rope symbolizes the weight/ burden of femininity on a non binary person in a patriarchal world bounded by social norms and gender identity. Labeled as “female” from birth, the color pink has followed and weighed down the perception and expectations of Leeza Day and many others alike. Leeza wears the pink rope around the neck, holds it up in the face of the world, and stares sadly at the ground wrapped in false identities and fabricated social constructs. Fucking Awesome alludes to the irony of it all.
