Re: How many is enough to normalise us?

... but I always ask. Why do you need her approval? Exactly. Why does anyone need anothers approval for anything in life so long as no physical harm to others is being done. If that person is happy and content with themselves, let them be. For some, family connection is important and that can add p...

Re: How many is enough to normalise us?

What you have money can’t buy. It’s Priceless and that’s an accepting wife. Maybe some people should actually learn something from me in how to live in this world and not worry over a piece of clothing. Well said. My wifes sentiment as well. For me, I am retired, did so when my wife did, but I ran ...

Re: Women's skirts, and why we shouldn't get upset at the la

They can make "mens" skirts all day long.... I'm still going to primarily wear "womens".... why? 1) They look better (anything with a "mens" label is bound to look dull, boring, and/or obnoxiously macho....) 2) Because I can.... Fully agree. I buy mine from society labelled womenwear stores and hav...

Re: Can a skirt ever look masculine

It seems that some need their skirt appearance to be masculine, some question a feminine style, some insist on dull colours, some bright. In essence a man in a skirt is being labelled, styled and an expectation established. I adhere to necessary labels only. i.e. skirt, trousers, shoe, boot etc as t...

Re: 1st time outside

Well done. As already said, the first time is always the hardest but it gets easier from now and your ventures further. Very rarely do I get a negative reaction. Most people just interact as a fellow human being and the few that don't, best ignored and show with confidence you are not bothered. In t...

Sitters and Their Stories

I have had my application accepted to be part of a National Trust event at Benningbrough Hall, near York. I had my meeting yesterday to go over the finer details of the event. It was open to none National Trust members, in fact I am the only NT volunteer as a sitter. Some within society state that t...

Re: Hi, from South Wales (UK)

Hello Rolando and welcome to skirtcafe. From your intro you are making great progress. Like most things confidence is gained by making small but regular steps and soon you question why you had the initial doubts and or concerns. Clothes are just clothes, for warmth, modesty and a reflection of ones ...

Re: John Lewis degenderizing kids' clothing labels

As with all aspects of life there are those in favour and those who are not. Others will listen and become supportive. The negative ones always remain as such even when they know their argument is biased and you will not change them. At the end of the day just be you, be what you want, appear as you...

Re: My first real skirt venture

Well done for making the move to public. I think all start off taking small steps. I certainly did and mine was about 7 years ago. With the passage of time and more outings you will find your confidence becomes stronger and stronger and being out on your own as well. As with all aspects of life it i...

Re: Couple Withdraw Their Son From School

What baffles me is that they don't make a similar fuss when a girl wears trousers to school :? Charlie I fully agree including adult women wearing male stule clothes. A few days before this incident a school in East Sussex UK hit the head lines for banning skirts for all new year 7 girls partly bec...

Re: Dissertation research regarding men in skirts.

You have contacted me direct via my website asking if you could send me some interview questions for your dissertation. I have replied s...
