Re: Swim skirts: Crossing a line?

The best swim suit I've experienced is what the Good Lord gave me at birth. The problem with invoking that option in the deeply post-Constitutional USA is that it will highly likely run afoul of local ordinance that'll land you in a "Sexual Predator Registry" from which there is no escape nor appea...

Re: Swim skirts: Crossing a line?

I think it's better to find a beach where you don't have to wear anything at all. That way you avoid the unpleasant cling of sodden fabric amidships when you get out of the water. Absolutly! But these beaches are not nearby for many of us. We do have some fairly isolated areas in the nearby swimabl...

Re: Has the attention on transgendered individuals helped us?

So... she says transwomen aren't women... whoopdiedo! Who the hell crowned her the Supreme queen of what is and isn't? I find what helps me most in getting along with others on such issues is to understand that many words have multiple definitions. A transwoman is a woman by some definitions and no...

Re: Swim skirts: Crossing a line?

My take on swimwear is it is nuts to intentionally wear cloth into the water, but given public decency laws seem to demand such most of the time, then as little as possible is the most comfortable, and baggy swim trunks are utterly absurd for efficacy in swimming. Exactly. I wear a bikini bottom wh...

Re: Hello, everyone!

Welcome to Skirt Cafe, BlueCheese.

I take it you like blue cheese? I do, too.

I live in northern Illinois, USA. Twice a week I put on pants (short pants in hot weather) for when I'm selling at farmers' market and for a peace vigil. Other than that, when I'm clothed, I'm in skirts.

Re: Postman or Mailman

FF444, I thought that cider was made from fermenting apples at least that's what nearly all definitions say. Fermentation means alcohol. I would term "hard cider" to indicate that the alcohol content would be higher than normal as is usually the case with scrumpy cider. In the US, cider is just unf...

At least it's priced better than this one.

Re: Home improvement

Looks like a good job to me, also. I, too, have some shoes like that. But when it's hot, I'm barechested; I'll put on a shirt and mask to go into a store.

I'm not any of the or part of any of the 30 plus some odd genders supposedly out there.
I think one of the 30 plus labels is "male". I think you are part of it.

Re: Childhood shout-out

I, too, picked blackberries as a child. Mom would make pies, jams, and jellies with them, and, of course, we liked them fresh with ice cream. I'll probably be picking some in the next few days. We've just had a few ripe ones so far.

Re: Canoe or Kayak - You Decide!

Another generality that tends to distinguish canoes from kayaks (other than the watertight skirt) is that kayaks tend to be paddled with a single paddle with blades at either end and canoes tend to be paddled with single-bladed paddles which are alternated from side-to-side by changing hands as the...

Re: Postman or Mailman

For me, "mailman" is the more common term, but I'll use "postman" when it seems to sound better, or for humor such as a joking attempt to sound sophisticated. "Postman" seems either a bit of a Britishism or a bit archaic. Of course, both are a bit dated, now that the syllable "-man" has been robbed ...
