Ah, apparently it all started with Kai going to San Diego Comic Con dressed as Harley Quinn. A certain... portion... of society is upset at his clothing choices (and yes, parents still use "son" and male pronouns when talking about Kai) https://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2017/07/25/liev-schreibers-son-ha...

Indeed, this confirms it - explicitly stating they are both sons:

Re: New York Times article

LOL, I even used that exact title "The Boys in Their Summer Dresses" in one of my early blog posts about men who prefer skirts and dresses to trousers. It's certainly uplifting to see the topic move off the garish runways and into the streets. But I suspect it will still take a while before it grows...

Re: Amen Dress

Meh. I do like a smart maxi, but the slit makes it entirely too flappy for me. Whenever I buy side (or back) slit dresses, I usually sew the slit shut. I'm not entirely sure why those waist-high slits drive me bonkers, but they do.

Re: Pockets differences

I like the length, the colour, and the buttons but the pleats give it a rather boxy shape that I must admit I'm not terribly wild about.

Re: Interesting perspective

Quite interesting, indeed! Kilts were still commonplace the last time I was in the UK as a child (many, many decades ago) but recently when I asked a crossdresser friend in Scotland if he wore a kilt, he laughed and said that he didn't - nor did he know anyone who does. Nowadays, he says, the only p...

Re: A waist of time

Have you considered wearing a corset? I have considered it several times, including within the past few weeks, and each time I reach the same conclusion (I don't learn from my past real well). Most corsets you find, especially the cheap ones, are purely decorative. Lots of spandex that doesn't hold...

Re: Sydney NSW School adopting a gender-neutral Uniform

What makes a skirt a "female skirt"? I hear all this talk about "cuts and shapes for a boys body" so as to imply a skirt simply will not fit a male shape. I understand dresses but I'm talking about skirts. I can only speak for my own body dimensions; obviously everyone is different. But my interpre...

Re: A waist of time

Just a guess, but what about suspenders, rather than a belt? Once I got over my fit of the giggles ("But I'm not trying to keep my stockings up!") I realised that's an excellent suggestion, and worth looking into. But here in the rural southern US I know that if I walk into Wal-Mart asking where I ...

A waist of time

Are any of our brothers here "apple-shaped" and carrying a few extra stone around? One of many problems I have with finding clothes that are right for me is that my shape makes waistbands difficult to fit. My equator is about 46 inches. If I wear a skirt (or trousers, really) at what I think is my n...

Re: Pleated Midi Skirt Trend

Never mind that, I want to know where she got that skirt! I love pleats, and I love maxi (but I'll settle for midi in this case, because:pleats)

Re: The Target Dress Challenge - prairie style

Absolutely my style! My earliest memories of wanting to wear a dress go back to my preteen years when I'd watch "Little House on the Prairie" as much for the clothes as for the stories. Over the years I became obsessed with having a calico prairie dress like that, and in general my tastes still run ...

Re: Nap Dresses for Men

Never heard of the term, but I don't think I would buy one now that I'm aware they exist. I have been working from home since long before the quarantine, and found long ago that if I do not "dress for work" I cannot get my mind into an office/work mentality even if my wife and I are the only ones wh...
