Re: Pressing the "HOT" button

Sorry if I came on a bit strong. I don't know anyone personally who "encourages" abortions. My attitude is we should do all we can to reduce them, and the best way to do that is Protect vulnerable girls and women. Institute thorough and freely available sex education. Provide birth control for free ...

Re: Pressing the "HOT" button

Now do I think they [abortions] should be banned or encouraged?


Encouraged? Please tell me that was a slip of the tongue.

many years ago manufacturers began offering bikini briefs, or at least briefs smaller than the traditional Y-fronts.

I think I'm right in saying they were more popular in Europe, Germany in particular. They tend to call them "slips" just to confuse the issue.

Re: Yahoo SPY: Skirts for Men: Menswear’s Latest Fad or a Style That’s Here to Stay?

I generally dislike the "Fashion" world. What's wrong with just having a bit of style?

Re: TMZ: RUSSELL WESTBROOK & KID CUDI ROCKIN' SKIRTS FOR NYFW ... New Trend Emerging???

I don't really have a lot of time for basketball or rap music, so the fact I don't like their style isn't very important.

Re: Skirt/dress-wearing vs. Masculinity

In my family, it was always my mother who expressed anger and rage. I never experienced my father in a seriously bad mood, (though my older siblings did, once ) I was, if anything, somewhat more concerned about not provoking my mother's temper. On one occasion, in her older days, she realized that ...

Re: I'm glad I stayed up late...

ABBA was a very formative experience for me when they hit the big time on the Eurovision song contest. I'm keen to see what this digital performance will be like. Hope they can show it places other than London.

Actually. that shirt dress is not far removed from the one I was wearing in Glasgow last Saturday.
Mine is in a red and black buffalo check.
Good to be on trend.
Steve.
I have one that I think is similar. Haven't worn it out much though.

Re: is this to short?

I would have said yes, too short a few months ago, but now? I just walked back to my place from a block or so away, wearing a square cut grey denim skirt,(It was a skort but the lining was so uncomfortable I cut it out and used matching briefs) and it measure 13" as well, At my height it looks even ...

Re: Sightings "in the wild"

In addition, one of the checkers at the OfficeDepot I go to seems to always be in his Utilikilt. The moral of the story: There's no field more attuned to public perception than retail. So, if retail, male checkers can wear a skirt in public, any male can. Until my job went away when COVID got bad, ...

Re: Local Medical Crisis

An older couple I was talking with said to me recently, “but is it really all that bad? It isn’t that deadly”. And true - individually we probably don’t personally know that many people who died… but it isn’t necessarily about death. It’s a lot of things beyond death: Burden on the medical system N...

Re: Canning

Nearest I've got to that is pickling. I love pickles! Pickled onions are highly anti social, but oh, so tasty! Trouble is they take so long, so I cheat, and instead of using small onions, I used larger onions sliced into 3/8 or 1/2 inch.

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

A couple of interesting(?) incidents today. I went to get a checkup for my pacemaker, nothing unusual about that, though it seems I'm close to needing a new one as the battery dies, still at least 6 months off. I've worn skirts most of the last few years of these checkups, with absolutely zero comme...

Re: "Mens Skirts Are on the Rise"

The only thing I found interesting about that article is that Quin Lewis wears skirts even though he has a prosthetic.
