Re: Naomi Watts' boy

I saw a couple of previous articles on him and he was always referred to as "he", presumably because that's how is parents refer to him - and how he refers to himself. If that's the case, then he is a non-trans, gender-secure young man bravely wearing what he likes even if that means ignoring some t...

The names Sasha and Kai are not all that gender-specific. People are referring to a boy but there are two children. Are we to assume that the one in the pink dress is a boy? The comments on the article suggest this but apart from the names the article does not gives gender.
They are both boys.

Naomi Watts' boy

This is a story about the younger child of an acting couple - a boy - but he is often photographed wearing pink garments, like here:

Re: New York Times article

Any garments aimed at men will only have a chance of acceptance and challenging the "trouser tyranny" if they are:
  • Simple

    Sensible

    Masculine

Re: Another Skirted Score

It wasn't me (I haven't "worked for 40 years in offices who had this arrangement"), but I quite agree with the sentiment.

Re: Story from Spain

I am "Mr Pessimist" when it comes to most stories as they don't advance our cause. This one is different. It is actually quite hopeful - men and boys wearing skirts as men and boys. We need more of this.

I would say something like the image below would be much more wearable than the weird and extremely expensive designs they are promoting - and acceptable:

Article in The Sunday Times

You have to be a subscriber to read the whole article, but you get the flavour from what is visible. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/dare-you-brave-the-mirt-yes-the-man-skirt-k7lzjlmjh I think the image at the top is one that is way too short to be thought a realistic option for most men.

Re: Sydney NSW School adopting a gender-neutral Uniform

I agree with those who point out that the cut of a skirt for a schoolgirl need not be any different to that which would fit a schoolboy - and the same would apply to dresses up to around puberty. The acid test for me will be how school skirts in this part of Australia are marketed. My guess is that ...

Re: Sydney NSW School adopting a gender-neutral Uniform

The article specifically said that the skirts and dresses were cut for both males and females. You believe that? They are going to make some changes to the designs of skirts and dresses so they will fit boys? Sorry, I don't buy it. First, they don't actually need to as we are talking about children...

Re: Sydney NSW School adopting a gender-neutral Uniform

Unfortunately, this is just a way of (a) giving girls more choice and (b) accommodating trans girls. They pretty much say that, again associating skirts with girls, and with boys who want to be considered as girls, thus reinforcing the idea that skirt = female . Those biological boys who are going t...

Re: How far we've come

"then shortly thereafter asked me what my preferred pronouns were. " This question does annoy me because people have names but they don't have pronouns. The choice of pronoun is determined not by the person referred to, but the grammar of the language and the semantic reality of the speaker. I have...

Re: Telegraph fashion podcast

The problem we have is that they are all enthusiastic about the idea of men wearing skirts - in principle - but so long as it's not the men who are their husbands or boyfriends.
