Re: Coming Soon: Gucci’s Gender-fluid Collection

Sorry gents; I just reread my post and realized I talked all the way around the issue without making my real point. For most practical purposes, there is no prohibition against your wearing a skirt out in public. Except the one you make for yourself. If Moonshadow can be as public as he is in Appala...

Re: How far we've come

Well said Moonshadow! Couldn't agree with you more, especially that last post

As to what Faldaguy said, count me as a "Ditto!"

Re: Greetings from NL

Welcome to the Skirt Cafe! I too started as a crossdresser, but when I decided to try dresses again, I realized I didn't want to go to the effort of creating and maintaining a fake female persona, I just wanted to wear the clothes. So now I do, everywhere. At home, shopping and taking care of all of...

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

My goodness, the more things change, the more they remain the same. We're still 2 people divided by a common language. "Detailing" refers to having your car thoroughly cleaned and waxed inside and out. Included in a thorough detailing job is not only having the interior carpets and upholstery vacuum...

Re: Coming Soon: Gucci’s Gender-fluid Collection

There's been all kinds of ideas on how to get the clothing manufacturers and retailers to bring skirts for men into the mainstream. As Spirou003 said we can approach stores with the concept. Why not? We can go into those stores, as a number of us do, pick out items, ask where we can try them on, buy...

Re: Fashion media promoting skirts for men

I have a black fedora and in the Fall and Winter I've worn it with all kinds of things.

Of course, I haven't done anything in those outfits as active as Indy tends to!

Re: Swim skirts: Crossing a line?

I'll take your word for it, but I'm beyond gobsmacked! Massachusetts was one of the original ratifiers of the US Constitution and presumably the Bill of Rights so you would think that they would have a working understanding of the expressions "due process" and "cruel and unusual punishments," which ...

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

To be clear, I have gotten a lot of compliments on my legs, but there are no other curves to my physique. Certainly nothing to look at. I was a little surprised you find wolf whistles empowering, but I can see your point. The one time I got cat-called it was frightening. I'm 5' 5" with a slender bui...

Re: “I never joke about my work 007.”

Have you thought that maybe some think you are trying to pass as a woman, and they are actually trying to NOT play along? Just a thought... That didn't even occur to me because even I would be able to pick up the sarcastic or hostile undertone that would come along with someone saying such a thing....

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

I was surprised the driver of that pickup truck mistook me for a woman, because I wasn't wearing any padding. Be that as it may, he did. And because he did he was more than happy that I delayed his leaving because it gave him just that much more time to enjoy how nice he thought my legs looked. Cert...

Re: Swim skirts: Crossing a line?

The best swim suit I've experienced is what the Good Lord gave me at birth. The problem with invoking that option in the deeply post-Constitutional USA is that it will highly likely run afoul of local ordinance that'll land you in a "Sexual Predator Registry" from which there is no escape nor appea...

Re: Hello Skirt Cafe!

Welcome to the Skirt Cafe! May I suggest that you think of your sulu and sarong the same way you do Kilts; menswear from other cultures because ... that's exactly what they are! Except the sulu and sarong were designed for the kind of climate you there in SoCal. If you're afraid you'll look differen...

Re: Swim skirts: Crossing a line?

it's simple, even though we're the most scientifically advanced and innovative people on the planet (or at least we used to be); we counterbalance that by being utterly antediluvian in a few specific areas. Especially anything that smacks of S-E-X.

In that arena, not much has changed since 1641.
