Re: Gucci Takes Toxic Masculinity to Task for Fall 2020

The whole notion of "toxic masculinity" is misandric hate speech spewed out by people suffering from the mental disorder known as "radical feminism". I'm new to posting on here (although I've been lurking for a while) so I'll limit myself to stating that I disagree strongly with quite a few aspects...

Re: De-lurk!

My wife doesn't do computers much, but I'll say how things are with her. I started wearing skirts for comfort when I had some skin irritation around the groin. She was supportive of wearing the skirts, but not in public at first, because they were for women. After we talked about how she wore many i...

Re: Old article about Oxford's dress code change

My understanding of karma is that it is a belief that what you do in this life will affect your circumstances when you are reincarnated.

I don't believe in reincarnation.

Re: What do you wear on your legs with skirts

I wear nothing on my legs when it's warm. When it's cold I wear long socks or leg warmers. I just got my first cheap garter belt to see if I like it to hold up the socks. https://image.pushauction.com/0/0/4446479f-fd24-4583-bcdc-1eeb38c45217/8b259ef3-b45d-4f5a-b37d-712efe9e78fb.jpg (moderators: if t...

Re: Adding a lining to a skirt

That is an interesting tutorial, because wearing a slip can be a problem with mini skirts, not that friction is such a problem with minis. I have a few mini skirts that are lined, usually due to a coarse outer material. One pleated, woolen mini has a lime green lining that is also part of the style...

Re: Non Gendered Children

I think I get it now: "Men, don't bring your daughter into the men's room" "Women, don't bring your son into the women's room" I see this on occasion in restaurants, the daughter has to go, when out with her dad. He has no choice as she is too young to send on her own. And vice versa. Wow, that's a...

Re: Adding a lining to a skirt

This may be an ignorant question, but what is the advantage of a sewn-in lining over an independent lining, i.e., a slip?

Re: Beer costs

Woman: Do you know that if you didn’t drink so much beer, that money could have been put in a step-up interest savings account and after accounting for compound interest for the past 20 years, you could have now bought an airplane?

Re: The things people will say

Well, the scriptures are pretty clear on crossdressing and being an effeminate man. As for pastoral robes, I believe it is commanded in Exodous for men to wear trousers when approaching God (apparently they did exist during biblical times) There is nothing wrong with ignoring passages we don't alig...

Re: The worm has turned

Why not just take advantage of the freedom provided by the skirt/kilt and sit to urinate? We don't have a problem when we need to empty our bowels, so why do we have a problem when we empty our bladders? Or is it a case of "that's what women do and it would be demeaning of a man to do the same"? No...

Re: A weird tech idea

The pumps make a noise, and have you seen the price of the batteries? I don't fancy spending £250 per battery just to prevent a flat skirt! This is getting silly, I suppose you could have an inflatable skeleton/frame inside the skirt, just use a sparklet to blow it up when volume is required (like ...

Why would you really want to wear tights or panty hose any way????
To me they are worse than trousers and shorts. I love skirts because of the comfort so why put on very uncomfortable tights etc.

Socks, thigh high nylons OK but not tights or panty hose.
I agree.

A battery recharged by my movement, of course. :D No, I'm not proficient in designing such things.
