Re: NBA player gets kilted

I think skirts for men will be normalised within my lifetime and I am in my 60s. I don't think it will be gradual, I think there will just be a sudden change. It just needs a few more high profile male public figures to go there. There was no gradual move into sports tights for men - it just happene...

Re: As nature intended or a smooth operator?

I shave and epilate. This is an aesthetic thing. I wear sheer tights and they look horrible with leg hair. I also prefer the feel of smooth legs when they rub together.

Re: "What was up with those giant Victorian skirts?"

Though my wardrobe covers most types of skirt and dress I don't have anything to wear with a hooped or cage petticoat nor do I own such petticoats. AS well as the difficulties of sitting in a car or a chair - how would you get through a door in a modern house?!!

Re: Public safety in skirting 2021

It is sad that the US has come to this. We do not really have the equivalent of rednecks in the UK - I suppose the nearest would be those English Nationalist skinhead racists - don't know what the official name for them is. In Scotland the worst you will probably get is a nasty scowl from a Free Chu...

Re: Got a skirt you are afraid to wear?

I am with Sinned on this one. It is nothing to do with being afraid - it is a matter of propriety and taste. I have very few skirts shorter than 21" and I hardly ever wear them even at home - I don't really see the point of going that short. I did once wear a 15" one outside (as a man) but with very...

Re: Killed for wearing a dress

I do not post my pictures here, with or without my head. I find verbal communication perfectly adequate. It is not about fear of being exposed as a skirt wearer or crossdresser (I do both). I work in a very open minded place and I am confident that my friends are real friends. For me the real issue ...

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

I can understand why people like skirts but not tights, but at this time of year in N Scotland I like tights and tend to spend most of my time in 40d opaques. As tights go I prefer 10d or below just to feel the skirt and the breeze but only of the breeze is not perishing. I feel stifled in tights ab...

Re: Openly gay Texas student protesting in-school suspension for wearing nail polish

I was a teacher many years ago and if a pupil had turned up wearing clothes that were in breach of the school dress code I would have supported the pupil, including a boy in a skirt or wearing make up. Restrictions based on gender or culture are wrong and must be called out. The ability of some scho...

Re: A Little History

Scotland has an unfortunate law called conspiracy to cause a breach of the peace but it is rarely if ever enforced (assuming it even could be). I recall in the late 60s or early 70s a young man was charged with "pervading in women's attire" or something similar. He said his girlfriend had told him h...

Re: 16 Days to Stop Violence Against Women

That there is violence against men does not mean we should not be concerned by violence by men against women. A former partner of mine who is still a close friend had been beaten by her ex-husband. Violence by men against their female partners is a particular problem because the woman is trapped. Co...

Re: What is your favourite skirt length to wear?

I am with Faldaguy on this - why pick one favourite when I have over 1000 to choose from so that whatever mood I am in there is a skirt that goes with it. I don't go shorter than 21" and I m lucky that I have the legs to go with that. A short(ish) skirt that is quite tight is a pleasure to walk in, ...

Re: Scottish Hate Crime law

Democracy is a moving target. Really?  ...or it just that the result of a democratically-taken decision doesn't happen to suit you this time? The result of a democracy this time is that 58% of voters in Scotland want independence, and the opportunity to test this in a proper poll is being denied to...

Re: Scottish Hate Crime law

Another tired argument. We were made a vow. Which they broke. Democracy is a moving target. It has moved. Live with it. The Scottish people have made it abundantly clear that we want another referendum. We woz robbed. You move the goalposts you move the politics. You reap the consequences. The UK is...

Re: Scottish Hate Crime law

Yes, things might get a bit tight in Scotland after in dependence. We know this, yet 58% of the population seem to want that. When will you get it into your heads that this is not about money? We have a different agenda from England and apparently a different morality Immigration, illegal war, even ...
