I'm not sure what this item has to do with couture.

I'm not even sure how this is relevant to us on here, as i have no desire to wear anything remotely feminine. I don't see plain denim skirts as inherently feminine and nobody could argue that Utilikilts are anything other than very macho.

In Biblical times, no men wore trousers because they didn't exist.

They seem to be a Catholic equivalent of the Westboro Baptist crowd.
I don't know if it belongs in the 'Couture' section. Maybe we could do with a 'Satirical' or 'Humour' section?

Just incredible that anyone could write such rubbish -- even 50 years ago.

I think things have changed a little since then, though I remember reading somewhere that some religious person blamed recent earthquakes on the rise in homosexuality.

I suppose not everyone can be as intelligent as the members of this forum !

Well when all's said and done, I think it's already done and dusted. Around here women are certainly seen bifucated much more than in dresses or skirts, although as summer comes on more dresses are seen. So they are emancipated (emaciated?) (emasculated?) time we were too. Emancipated. Emasculated? I'm as confused as they appear to be.

Every time I go out I'm shocked at how few women wear skirts and dresses anymore ... and I lament the decline of women in skirts and dresses, though it does make the increasingly rare panty flash just a bit more delicious. :twisted:

A few weeks ago I was at a Sports Bar here in Burleson,Texas, called the Spice Rack. I was the only person in the entire bar, inside and outside, wearing a skirt, in this case a short cammo kilt. A particularly brash young lady engaged me and made a big deal out of how inappropriate my skirt was and nothing I said in my defense had any effect on her. More and more people were stopping their conversations and listening to mine with this young lady. She wouldn't back down and I began to think the whole crowd might turn against me.

I stood up very straight and said rather loudly, "Frankly, I'm offended by your pants!" She said, "What? Why??" "You should be wearing a skirt," I said, "and I think it's inappropriate for you to be wearing jeans, you look like a man." At this point her boyfriend was grinning ear to ear and about half the crowd was too. She said, "Should I wear a skirt as short as yours (sarcastically)?" "Shorter, actually." At this point the crowd was laughing, the girl was befuddled, her boyfriend was toasting me and the owner gave me a shot of Scotch.

I don't know what any of this has to do with this thread, but since we're not even sure what category it belongs in, what the Hell! It's a good story and a good example of how the issue of gender restricted clothing endures until this day. :?

Excellent, Chris! Attack is the best form of defence.

You haven't told us what arguments you used at first, but pointing out the inequality of standard dress codes in a humourous way did the trick. Not for your protagonist, who probably clings all the more to her opinions because she lost so publicly, but for everyone else who had one ear on your discussion.
Keep on skirting,
