Re: Rethinking Lingerie....

It's a bit of a "science experiment". I'm trying to ascertain whether a balance can be struck between a practical question that occasionally crops up and the "Iron Fist" rule. Styles have definitely changed over the years, and I don't really think for the better. It's dovetailed with what I've witn...

Re: Teenager wearing a dress harassed by inbred Tennessee hillbilly

Re: Lifestyle Asia: Who says dresses are just for women?

Coder asked: if the article hasn't been posted here, could you? I'd love to oblige you, but I can't. It was just a mention and a photo of Mark in an item in my newsfeed so it's long gone. It was a positive mention and the main point is; we're now accepted for who we are. So when it comes to the Mill...

Re: Lifestyle Asia: Who says dresses are just for women?

What gets me is that the change, at the outset, could be done for a fantastically minimal outlay. A minor change in labelling from say, size 16 to 36" waist, allocation of a rack or two in the men's section and a sign or two. The production lines are all there, distribution is all there and retail ...

Re: Skirt/dress-wearing vs. Masculinity

You nailed it Moon! Well done! Like everyone else I hope your Dad lives long enough to embrace his genuine self and proudly express his feelings. And then let you know he loves you and is proud that you got to your self-acceptance so much earlier than he did. OK. Call me a cockeyed optimist, but we ...

Re: Rethinking Lingerie....

There's been some discussion of why we may or may not want to wear a bra. One Sunday I was informed in a very insistent manner of yet another reason that I don't think made it into this thread yet; suppressing one's nipples. As I've said a number of times, no one needs an anatomy lesson from us. So ...

Re: Teenager wearing a dress harassed by inbred Tennessee hillbilly

Apparently, the Olympic Committee and other sports authorities such as the NCAA have looked pretty carefully at the issue of what, if any advantage an MTF athlete might have over genetic females and have set a standard that MTF athletes are ineligible for a year after they start hormone treatments. ...

Re: Teenager wearing a dress harassed by inbred Tennessee hillbilly

... "How do we define who is a male and who is a female in such contexts?" Amongst the people who have studied that question in a scientific manner, it is a settled question: People are who they say they are -- male, female or other -- no matter what other conclusions other people might come to if ...

Re: Jet Blue flight attendants uniform

I totally agree with Ray. As for the longevity of this trend, I remember seeing an item about a male flight attendant who sued for and won the right to wear the uniforms designed for his female colleagues. When Alaska Airlines introduced their new uniforms they stated that anyone may buy and wear an...

Latest Developments in Fashions

Recently I saw a few items on my smartphone's newsfeed that should be of interest: First, a designer named Alber Elbaz died this past April. It seems he was well-loved in the fashion world because he was a true gentleman and always willing to give advice and help to anyone else in his industry who w...

Re: "Fashion Variability" in Mens/women's fashion

To add one more point to the question Coder posed, look at the history of men's fashions. Nearly every change was made as a response to military necessity. Perhaps the most long-lasting was the industrialization of warfare that began in the US Civil War, which created the modern reality of Total War...
