I think for most purposes trousers are the practical option and I never find them "boring".

Skirts are nice for a change, especially if I am doing something sedate, like reading or gentle walking.

Article in Womenswear Daily

"Menswear might be embracing softer airs, but ironically the skirts are toughening up. It’s safe to say guys wearing them entered the mainstream fashion consciousness on actors and athletes like Danny Levy, Pete Davidson and Russell Westbrook, all of whom worked their calves for the cameras in ...

Re: Skirt with men's size on label.

That would be a brilliant opportunity to email the manufacturers or distributors, point out that men's sizes are shown, and ask them if these are really unisex (because you would buy them and you know some other men who would buy them). This wakes them up to the fact that they could up to double the...

Re: Are we engaging in fashion freedom?

Nobody is going to stop men from wearing whatever they want. Not in this country. True they won't stop you, but they will (a) make it harder for you by not offering men's skirts in mainstream stores; and (b) put you at risk of ridicule, either as an eccentric or as someone aping women by appropriat...

Re: Are we engaging in fashion freedom?

For me, trousers is what I normally wear. A skirt is something to be worn occasionally when the weather is fine and I'm not doing anything strenuous. It's just a change from the usual trousers. The "fashion freedom" aspect for me is that I shouldn't feel that I don't have a choice. I also ...

Re: Effectively, a Boy's Dress

I recall walking through a district of Rome some years ago and seeing a group of schoolchildren aged around 6 or 7 led by a couple of teachers. The kids, whom I assumed were all girls even though some had very short hair, were wearing what looked like uniform dresses with bare legs and white socks. ...

Re: Girls vs Boys Soccor

There isn't all that much difference between boys and girls pre-puberty, except perhaps in terms of aggression. Once boys gain their adolescent strength, the differences become stark. This match came to mind: "Arsenal Women's pre-season preparations got off to a rocky start after they were beat...

Things kids say.

A family friend is a primary school teacher. There was a day in April when the children, age 6 and 7, were asked to bring in an object to show the class that had importance to the family and was very old. One little boy produced a mango-shaped lump of rock with some chips taken out of it. He told th...

Effectively, a Boy's Dress

I spent the day at the beach with daughter and family. My grandson, age 6, played in the lake and on the beach and then we packed to come home. My daughter pulled out what was essentially a long-sleeved child's blue and white dress, pulled it over his head and he wore it home. She has taken him out ...

Re: Will Skirts Ever be Mainstream for Men?

Great question. There are plenty of sites which exist for the trans community and crossdressers and that's fine - but they are not what we are primarily about (I hope!). To make skirts mainstream for men should be our goal here. There has already been some successes. Mainstream manufacturers like H&...

Re: Mississipi School Discriminate Transgender Girl

Honestly, I don't see why the parents need to be involved. At best you can explain to them the potential consequences, and convince them not to. But a name is a personal thing and something you get to choose. When it comes to children, their official name should be chosen or approved by their paren...

Re: Mississipi School Discriminate Transgender Girl

On the basis that boys should have the right to wear skirts, then why should a different name or pronoun ... Names are chosen by parents. If parents are happy for Jonathan to switch to Janet or vice versa, then that's fine - they can change the name they use at school. Pronouns are different. Nobod...

Re: Mississipi School Discriminate Transgender Girl

I think this is being approached in the wrong way. If a student is biologically and physiologically male, that is a simple reality. Until transitioning is complete (hormones, surgery, the legal aspects etc), she can request, but can't demand, others recognise her as female. However... The real issue...

Re: Pride

To me, pride is an emotion and it has an antonym, i.e. "shame". Both carry hazards. Pride is pleasurable but can give rise to arrogance while shame is a miserable experience. I try to ensure I only give these space in my mind where they relate to my own behaviour and achievements and never...
