Re: Boys told not to cross-dress because it's not "normal"

What does the Pope wear? Unfortunately the "simple" answer would be it is mens garb / religious wear. Forget that by shape and style it is a robe/dress/skirt. Very clearly we recognize a cassock, vestments as mens simply because they have worn them for centuries. The distinction is probably down to...

Re: What were you doing an hour ago?

I've just heard from my Service agent that something called an EGR valve (something to do with exhaust regeneration? ) had failed, "Recirculation". It's a tactic used to reduce peak combustion-chamber temperatures to cut down on the formation of oxides of Nitrogen. It probably stuck open and that l...

What is more these guys were known to go into battle naked so "exposure" would not have been a prime concern. ...

Re: Tesco man employee wears skirts at work

What I found encouraging the most, was that the comments below the article seemed overwhelmingly positive or ambivalent, with a few very good ones. On the gentleman in question, it seemed like he may have been pressured into trying the full "try to pass as a female" thing (he mentions having wigs an...

Re: Girl talking about men’s skirts on YouTube

I wonder why people feel they need to know if a baby is a boy or girl. Perhaps to do baby-talk an extra octave higher? Perhaps to know what colour socks to knit? (do people still knit socks?) Finding neutral color baby clothes is tough, I'll give you that. Can be done, but most of it is done up in ...

Re: Girl talking about men’s skirts on YouTube

... Males and females have different body shapes and gait and they are usually easy to distinguish even at a distance... A lot of clothing is actually designed to emphasize these differences and make them more obvious. Women's clothing flared out at the hip and cinched at the waist augment that hou...

Re: Sporran with Trousers

I always thought that half to point of a sporran was to hide the "male bulge" which tends to be more obvious in unembellished flat front skirts, while the seams of a pair of pants (trousers) tends to make it less obvious. Some snugger modern pants I see guys in could use a sporran for this camouflag...

Re: Girl talking about men’s skirts on YouTube

The idea that women or feminine things are inferior is a figment of the feminist academy's collective imagination. They need to get over themselves, realize we all have different strengths, and stop selling lies to the rest of us.

Re: Girl talking about men’s skirts on YouTube

The idea of "toxic masculinity" is awful. While I get that it isn't calling all things masculine toxic, it implies that some significant part of what is unique to men is in fact toxic. And that implication is a problem, not just for men's skirt wearing, but because it perpetuates the negative overal...

Re: Skirts

Welcome! While I'm a big advocate for utility kilts, some of the cheap ones especially are truly awful. I've bought a few that never see the light of day because they are nearly unwearable. I never do the denim shorts thing anymore (and almost no jeans) so the denim skirts I usually pass on as well....

Re: Army rules for ponytails and nail color

Well, while I'll grant most men likely have no desire to wear skirts, many do have a desire to grow a beard, and like women, these beards allow these men to feel "more like a man inside". Practicality reigns here. Beards aren't compatible with gas-masks; earrings are. It's the same reason that kilt...

I like the juxtaposition of the male shirt and tie with the skirt and heels in the second pic. The skirt color in the first one is great, too. Keep up the good work.

There were no drugs sewn into the pockets so they were immediately servicable when I had finished.
