Re: A leap into the water

Also, for people in general, context and expectation counts for a lot. Most men wear improvised skirts quite often and no one thinks anything of it, least of all the wearer. I refer to the popular wrap round skirt that is a towel. Along the coast here in summer as it is now, it is a very common sigh...

Re: Harry Styles wearing skirts and dresses

My item about "Comments on Ben Shapiro for "masculinity" tweets" has a link to a thorough 11 min discussion about this.

Re: Another Newbie

Recently, while going on a mountain bike ride in the bush near here, I noticed someone had dumped some clothes at the edge of the parking lot. I salvage a couple of good knee length skirts from the pile. After washing, they fitted me perfectly. Everyone here really appreciates that there is no commu...

Re: Encounters of the silly kind

I walk the dog a couple of times a day, always in a skirt or kilt. Often get into conversions about the dog or kilt, rarely the skirt though.

Re: school uniforms

Another article in The Guardian about school uniforms here: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/jul/10/the-tyranny-of-the-schoolgirl-skirt-still-haunts-me Refreshingly, it doesn't raise the usual red herrings about sexuality. It concludes with: I have no real axe to grind with school skir...

Re: The Guardian - More men should wear skirts

It is clear from many comments on this site that many men feel very limited in their clothing choices. They fear censure from society, both from men and women. This behaviour is self limiting.

Re: The Guardian - More men should wear skirts

This a good article because it doesn't posit a precondition of trans/gay for a man to wear a skirt or dress. Rather it shows that such garments should be in the normal range of clothing for men, regardless of their sexual identity.

Re: 'Lad in a Frock'

Frock is used fairly often in Australian newspapers, less so in everyday speech.

Re: A New One - School Skirt Bans!

Stu, I think this thread is getting widely off topic. When I look at the data (yours and other sources) I see quite different numbers. For instance, femicides by partners in Australia is a serious sociological problem, and it is a least an order of magnitude greater than female deaths by lightning (...

Re: A New One - School Skirt Bans!

Stu, I don't agree with you analysis of western society, both past and present, and I can see we are far apart on this. All the women I know well enough say they have had to endure many oafish men who try to control them and oppress their ambitions, not to mention physically assault them. I came acr...
