Re: A plea for skirts as a degendering measure

If I understand Stu correctly, there is a pendulum which results in a two phase cycle: Gender-bending phase/Socially Conservative phase/Gende-bending phase/Socially Conservative phase..... The question that comes to mind...can something introduced in a Gender-bending phase survive into and through ...

Re: Behind the Seams

Thanks for that, that was really interesting. I've always said that sci-fi often says more about the time it was written than the future, but it's nice to see it so nicely demonstrated.

Re: Progress - maybe lack of it

I fail to see how one reconciles giving up pants because as bifurcated garments they are uncomfortable, only to turn around and add back in a batch of bifurcated garments -- but because they come from the other side of aisle, they somehow become a logical alternative? Where is the consistency in th...

Re: Progress - maybe lack of it

One of the purposes of clothing is present yourself in a certain way. To emphasise the things about your body you want to emphasise and to diminish the things you want to distract from. This is one of the reasons that dresses with defined waists look a bit weird on men: they're emphasising a narrow ...

Re: Plus size skirts

AIUI one of the reasons sizing of women's clothing is a bit weird, especially with bottom halves, is that a garment size implies a certain hip size. But garments, especially when not made of stretchy material, need to make assumptions about the waist size. The difference between waist/hip varies eno...

Re: Film Aeon Flux

Generally I find that books/films about the future say more about the time they were made than they do the future.

Re: Eddie Lizard

My detestation of the word comes from the fact that it is only applied to men, never to women. Are there women crossdressers? Yes. Can you show me one and not get the assertion thrown out?

Re: Eddie Lizard

Maybe we have to start trying to get the word “crossdressing” thrown out as offensive towards the gender-fluid (sorry Coder). Or better yet just get it thrown out of the lexicon altogether. I don't get the hate on the word "crossdressing". I vastly prefer it to the alternative: "transvestism", whic...

Re: Progress - maybe lack of it

Hi Stu, I largely agree with you about the meanings of gender and sex. You give fairly good explanations there, but then jump to the notion of pronouns, without explanation. I don't understand why people worry so much about pronouns. Consider this: B: Hi, I'm Bob A: Hi Robert, your birth certificate...

Re: Convenience of a skirt at the beach

Whenever I go swimming at the local lake lake I put on my one-piece and a skirt at home and cycle there. There are no changing rooms. The main reason is that pulling down the skirt is super-easy and when getting dressed afterwards the skirt is easily put on, compared to pants/shorts which stick to d...
