Re: Don't worry, most people know we're not trans

For those members of this community who are interested in the ways that clothes can be adapted/designed across the male-female spectrum, I have found a set of four articles that explore the subject from an explicit "non-gendering" perspective: https://www.seamwork.com/articles/degendering-...

Re: And this is still part of the problem..

Not a pay wall, I think, but a geo-wall -- I can read it OK where I am. That may be, I just know that the page was obliterated by a demand for a paid "subscription" and I couldn't read it without resorting to browser-trickery. This must be the Greg James who presents what sounds like a hi...

Re: Sightings "in the wild"

At about 1430hrs on 14th February, while crossing the Howard Street car park in Gt Yarmouth, I noticed at the back of the old people's centre (at number 7, Regent Street) two people, presumably staff, at their back door, having a cigarette. The woman was totally unremarkable (black jeans, black hood...

Re: Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink

Hi rode_kater I found this Wikipedia article about the Dutch footballer, Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink, who once played for Celtic, in Scotland and for The Netherlands national team. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_Vennegoor_of_Hesselink Here's a quote from the Wikipedia article which details how th...

Re: Men's? Unisex? Or Women's?

Skirts marketed as "unisex" seems to be a category that can just barely exist. I believe that Skirtcraft gained traction because of crowd funding. The original Macabi was designed for women who wanted to go fishing. Fishing is something that appeals to men, which resulted in men inquiring...

Re: Weather in your location ?

I went for a walk in Yarmouth (east coast of Norfolk, England) this afternoon with my wife and one daughter. The north winds over the last few days have caused the sea to "pile up" towards the southern end of the North Sea between the UK and the Netherlands/Belgium, and with today's high t...

Non-posting/inactive members?

In an idle moment recently, I clicked on the "members" link at the bottom of the forum index page, and then did a sort by the numbers of posts. In all, there are just under 21 pages of members (N=1527). While there are some prolific posters in the first few pages, only two and a half pages...

Re: Teenage son likes to wear a dress

Not to stomp on the link, but that article feels like it was AI-written - anyone else think so? I too think it's AI. Therefore AI. Fair enough, but in this case, the point is still perfectly valid. The issues surrounding MIS are very real, there is ample evidence for that around here. For a hell of...

Re: Teenage son likes to wear a dress

Not to stomp on the link, but that article feels like it was AI-written - anyone else think so? I too think it's AI. I had written a detailled stylistic analysis of the article in support of this opinion, but was called away for 30 minutes and found on my return that my reply had vanished - that'll...

Interesting old (oct 2020) Mumsnet forum, mainly about Mark Bryan

While recovering from a heavy Christmas meal, I was browsing various online sites when I came upon an interesting old (oct 2020) Mumsnet forum about Mark Bryan, 15 pages in all. I can't find any previous references to this on SC. What struck me was that, once one discounted the negative comments abo...

Re: Skater Skirts Wearers Weight Loss

It has been a while since I have posted on here but I have had to have a clear out of my Skirt collection due to my weight loss with around 50% of the skirts I own no longer fitting. The ones which do still fit are all of stretchy material which is understandable and fit a million times better as a...

Re: The Beskirted Man

I think it's more than that Dust. There is a perception that men become sexually excited when they wear anything feminine. Put crudely they "get off" on it. This gives a totally wrong impression of MIS. There is a sensual side to the clothes "given" to women and they like / enjo...

Re: The Beskirted Man

I've been looking through some threads that I must have missed earlier in the year, and I (re)found those by Holger about The Beskirted Man I recently stumbled upon this online magazine, and I must say, the articles are incredibly up-to-date. It's not solely focused on skirts, either. The man behind...

Re: Shirt dresses

Shirt dresses work well for men, with a shirt collar, pockets and usually not too long. I don't wear dresses much because they don't suit my "figure" but I do own a couple; one picuted below: http://www.skirtcafe.org/forums/download/file.php?id=13027&t=1 Also look for polo dresses, tu...
