Re: It's Now Official

Do these things matter? To most, not really. Not directly, at least. Do we have bigger problems? Sure. Is Moon a girl? No. Are the strongest women alive weaker than the weakest men? Of course not. But here's the thing: athletics today are more than just a feel good pastime. They are big money. Even ...

Re: Sightings "in the wild"

So I got talked into doing a "mud run" recently. Basically an adult obstacle course where some of the obstacles involve a lot of dirt, mud, or muddy water. This one was only a 5km (3.1 miles) run with a claim of some large number of obstacles, but I think they counted the dirt piles they made you ru...

Re: New here

I have a 36 inch waist, and the size 34 fits fine. They’re sized like USA pant sizes: smaller than the actual measurement. I also have a 33 that fits so-so with help from the Velcro closer, but is a bit tighter that I feel is comfortable at this stage of my life. It’s more and more about comfort fo...

Re: Is this the reason?

Yes Dust, but a lot of it is really down to how men treat each other and not simply "society at large". In the cafe, we are preaching to the converted but the world outside is changed beyond any doubt. It is up to all men now to take, not wait for permission to redress the imbalances you pointed ou...

Re: Is this the reason?

B) Destigmatize femininity. Not sure that's our problem, either. Certain stereotypically feminine things may be stigmatized in men , but I think that is part of a larger problem. We (society at large) don't allow men to experience, or at least express, the full range of human experience or the emot...

Re: Is this the reason?

Be careful not to conflate the stereotypically feminine with women. Just as we do not want masculine stereotypes conflated with men. There is a good bit of overlap, but not a one to one equivalency.

Yeah, and the fashion designers don't care about practicality, either. I don't think it a coincidence that the one thing I have seen gain traction is utility kilts.
And it had very little to do with fashion designers....

Re: Vanity Fair: How the Thom Browne Skirt Movement Is Changing Fashion Forever

Brief moment of nostalgia...I recall the misfit toys, a misfit reindeer, and the abominable snowman. Great film. Nostalgia for sure. But I think saying this is anything to do with it is a stretch... I am cautiously optimistic. However, while the man's skirt looks plausible, the skirt-over-slacks co...

Re: Is this the reason?

If I "had to" shave my legs or wear tights or pantyhose to "get to" wear a skirt. I wouldn't Wear a skirt. I probably would. I've said that I would before. But I don't think that is what is holding us back. Everything is getting more casual. Women rarely if ever wear pantyhose. I think many conside...

Re: Is this the reason?

I know several women who don't shave their legs or armpits ever. In my real world social circle, I'm the only guy who wears skirts publicly, however. I do run into guys who shave their legs semi frequently. Not a bridge I've crossed yet, but probably more common than women not shaving. Unless you co...

Re: Vanity Fair: How the Thom Browne Skirt Movement Is Changing Fashion Forever

Okay, that's one of the better articles on men's skirts I've seen. Generally positive, but balanced, and without making it about sexuality. The pictures didn't show any of the reasonable skirt outfits they were talking about, however...

Thanks for posting, Coder!

Re: Teenager wearing a dress harassed by inbred Tennessee hillbilly

I went to US public schools the whole way, K-12. I'd had a high school history class that covered ancient history around the Mediterranean. The Egyptians, the Greeks, the Romans... Included in that were the ancient Israelites. The teacher assigned a short reading from the appropriate source text on ...

Re: Incerun Dress

Interesting site. Never seen it before. If the size charts are accurate, it's actual American sizes. I'm assuming it's all shipped from Asia, though? Cheap cloth isn't surprising, but always something to watch out for. MB, is this the skirt you tried, by chance? https://www.incerunmen.com/collection...

Re: Teenager wearing a dress harassed by inbred Tennessee hillbilly

The overt sensitivity to "words" is what will bring an end to society as we know it. This was part of my point about disagreeableness being a good thing. Carl said, Nope. It guarantees freedom "of" religion, and prohibits the establishment of a State religion. Only one Constitution in the world has...
