Congratulations and happy anniversary!

It takes commitment and a lot of work to stay happily together that long.

Re: The Past......

Thank you for sharing Fred.

My immediate reaction was, "Amen to all of that."

Re: Sydney NSW School adopting a gender-neutral Uniform

The article specifically said that the skirts and dresses were cut for both males and females. Consequently, a boy wanting to get a uniform dress, for whatever reason, has a dress available to him that is cut for the male physique and probably has some indication on the label that it is such to faci...

Re: Hi everyone

Dresses with a strong shaping tend you squeeze you into a shape you're not, which doesn't look ... good


As they say in the Westerns, "Smile when you say that pardner." (cf. my photos sprinkled throughout these categories)

Re: Teenager wearing a dress harassed by inbred Tennessee hillbilly

I too agree with Fred that the typification of that ex-CEO was completely uncalled for. We know nothing of the man's background so we shouldn't assume and certainly not at the expense of a whole state's worth of people! Stevie got it half-right, violence is not the answer. And those young men respon...

Re: Skirt Storage

There are plenty of other styles of multiskirt hangers. The next time you're in a shopping mall, look for a store that specializes in storage solutions or on the internet for such.

Re: Teenager wearing a dress harassed by inbred Tennessee hillbilly

But for sure, that young man rocked his gown. Kudos to the parents involved and his school for letting him wear it. Kudos too to View Well for firing that bigoted a**hole. Finally, transpeople, of whatever degree, have as much right to be themselves as anyone else and anyone who's disturbed by their...

Re: Teenager wearing a dress harassed by inbred Tennessee hillbilly

Hate and intolerance are the antithesis of Christian values. Even though evangelicals and fundamentalists get so much of the press, they are NOT representative of the majority of Christians; the mainstream denominations are still in the majority. Though if more of the Roman Catholic hierarchy doesn'...

Re: How far we've come

Yes Faldaguy, but it's the numbers of all genders who don't that are the problem. Sorry for the pessimism. I go everywhere, and I do mean everywhere, in a skirted garment, usually a dress, and the negative reactions amount to one per year. Seriously, one per year. Now that my hair is longer, I get ...

Re: Hi everyone

I mostly wear dresses and for my size have always had broad shoulders. Your best bet is to go to what you blokes call charity stores or off-price stores (stores that sell new goods and sell them at deep discount because the manufacturers sold them way below wholesale because they were out of season,...

Re: Sightings "in the wild"

The younger generations, at least of the better educated and middle classes, DEFINITELY see gender along a continuum and don't necessarily see clothes as gendered at all. So those sightings could very definitely be cases of young people either expressing their nonbinary genders or simply practicing ...

Re: Stealth dress

Here's a recent picture of me in my shameless (on Tory Burch's part), though certainly not cheap (though it was to me 2nd hand [previously owned? like 2nd hand luxury cars]), preemptive Tory Burch knockoff of BeachLion's Stealth Dress. Tory Burch Dress, SC.jpg The blouse portion is 100% silk, except...

Mine strew, with the outrageousness of the fashions they would look no better on the men than the women.
