Re: They've been at it again

Is it possible to enable reactions to posts on this platform? It would be nice to 'like' posts and such like (just to show you're paying attention!) without having to think of something to add!

Re: Why do mens kilts have to look so masculine

It's great to see the boundaries of what counts as 'kilt' style being challenged. I have discovered tights, and wear them often with shorts. (They also diminish any potential visual offence of a man in a short skirt!) Women's kilt-skirts tend to be lighter and shorter than traditional men's kilts, a...

Re: New boy on the block

Thank you all so much for your kind and welcoming words. I've been thinking a lot about the differences between - wearing a skirt, - wanting to feel feminine, - androgenous/gender-non-conforming style, and coming to the view that these are all different things. Even accepting that gender roles are s...

Re: Harry Styles wearing skirts and dresses

Harry Styles as my cultural hero, eh! 2020 just keeps getting stranger. Some random reflections on that article: First of all, the outfits are all way OTT, but that's a Vogue thing right? Have you ever seen any Vogue looks in your local high street? By the time it makes it to Primark it will be tone...

Re: New boy on the block

Wow, so much response! I'm overwhelmed! Thank you once again to all for your kind welcomes and encouraging words. I have been affected by this searching, and I think insightful, article from 'Racked': https://www.racked.com/2018/4/23/17261508/gender-bending-men-dresses To quote: "The display of skir...

Re: New boy on the block

Thank you @Spirou003, and thank you @crfriend, and thank you @Grok for your welcomes. Thank you :) I absolutely agree with @crfriend that current fashions in male attire are utterly dull and devoid of style. All baggy polos, baggy-bum jeans, and nondescript trainers. There is a palpable fear of 'sta...

Re: New boy on the block

Thanks for the welcome @Big and Bashful! To be absolutely clear about my earlier post, I intended no personal criticism of @Rokje. I tried to make it clear that a commitment to mutual tolerance underlies all my comments. I believe my core point still stands. There is a profound and unchallenged tabo...

Re: New boy on the block

Thank you for the welcomes @denimini, @Faldaguy and @Rokje :) I'm based in Scotland - and you immediately think 'Great! You can wear a kilt!' But while the kilt is ok as a garment for some times, I have issues with it as the default, go-to, solution. Being pleated it's better for standing and dancin...

New boy on the block

Greetings skirters! I have to say how refreshing the rules are for this site. I've been following a couple of pages on FB (Men in Skirts and Men for Skirts), and really disappointed how infected both of them are by transvestitism - I'm not trans-anything. Don't mind if you are - we're either toleran...
