Re: The Washington Post: Opinion: The men in skirts at the Met Gala made defying gender norms look fun

Mishakawaskirt said, A man dons a skirt ... And magically become(s) female and changed gender. You're not only misunderstanding what was said in the headline, you're misunderstanding the term gender. The headline referred to "Gender Norms." That is, the actions, in this case presentation, generally ...

Re: I just don't understand...

Ultimately, Carl and Moonshadow are right; at the end of the day, collectively, we Americans have got to get our heads screwed back on right. And that it starts by owning up to what we have gotten wrong. However, in the meantime, we need to turn down the volume of the violence. These mass shootings ...

Re: Regarding the Electoral College and Other Quirks of the US Democratic Republic

Carl said, Yeah, and the OP missed the memo that the US has not operated as a republic with democratic representation since 2000 at the latest, and more likely the mid 1990s. Hello Carl, Before you again denigrate my political awareness, knowledge or savvy I feel there are a few more things you need...

Re: Regarding the Electoral College and Other Quirks of the US Democratic Republic

Al, If you aren't interested in or dislike political posts, DON'T READ THEM. There can be no question that I made it crystal clear that my post related to politics so you can't claim that you didn't know what the post was about it and that you unknowingly stumbled into it. Dave - I didn't unknowing...

Re: Article on the phenomenon of "men wearing skirts on the red carpet this year"

I just looked through Pics and Looks and saw that I posted a photo of my first evening gown (Yes, I have several, make that too many. And no, it most certainly does not reflect the number of formal occasions I go to; it's an indication of how irresistible I find bargains.) in the thread from years a...

Re: Article on the phenomenon of "men wearing skirts on the red carpet this year"

I think the money line of the article was this quote of Thom Browne's: "I think it's so nice when you find your true self and you stay true to that." Isn't that EXACTLY what all of us and this website are all about? Moonshadow said, But even so, during formal events, men still had to wear the monkey...

Re: Exhibition at the V&A

Carl said, masculinity is most assuredly NOT "performance art" Oh, but it is! At least the expression thereof. Just as femininity is. Ask any self-reflective woman who has ever gotten dressed up for a "hot date" or a special event. And there is nothing demeaning with acknowledging it. Many of you ha...

rode kader said, A leaked Supreme Court opinion states that if a right isn't explicitly listed in the Constitution, then it doesn't exist. Close, but no cigar (prize). (Sorry, it's an old American colloquialism.) So far, it's only a leaked Supreme Court draft decision. The reason drafts are kept sec...
