Re: Defying Gender Bias

I think that Vlasta and his wife are fine because I saw him on a Czech Late Night Show about three months ago. My friend Markus Muth told me about a meeting with them and also posted pictures on Instagram (@dermodemuth).

Defying Gender Bias

Vlasta is a man from the Czech Republic who doesn't see himself as a crossdresser, but as a perfectly normal hetero who just makes use of women's fashion. He and his wife have given an interview to Injection Magazine on the topic: "Defying Gender Bias - The Couple Embracing Fashion Freedom" https://...

Re: Men in skirts around the world - Straw Poll

Hold on. I think it's worth it, even though the man was a psychoanalyst and some Freudian theories are considered outdated, especially by the standards of today's cognitive psychology. I hope you will be able to confirm his core statements to be valid.

Re: Men in skirts around the world - Straw Poll

We all know why. Carl Fluegel described it already in 1930 in detail in his Psychology of clothing. He coined the term "Great Masculine Renunciation". You've mentioned this before - I found a scanned copy here: https://archive.org/details/in.ernet.dli.2015.34079/page/n7/mode/2up but I'm curious - h...

Re: A plea for skirts as a degendering measure

I live the data being a scientist. Do you remember your source? Sorry Scot, as a non-scientist, I don't "live the data". It was just one of those things that emerged from some article that was being discussed around here. However, "difficulties with partners" is a very common thread in the cafe too...

Re: A plea for skirts as a degendering measure

In my student surveys, about 70% of women think skirts suit men if the style is right. A third of women find men in skirts sexy. How big was your sample and do you believe that your students are truly representative of the general population. Another statistic, from the UK, 90% of woman support men...

Re: A plea for skirts as a degendering measure

“Therein lies the rub. Whilst women may be notionally supportive of men wearing skirts, and they may actually be attracted to them, women almost to a one categorically state, "Not on my man." thereby scuppering the notion in any practical sense.” Exactly. That’s the conversation I had with my wife ...

Re: Men in skirts around the world - Straw Poll

My understand of what has been said is that men gave up being beautiful to be useful in the 18th century. They put aside frivolous clothing and wore more practical clothes leaving the frivolous wear to the women. Men no longer wore wigs or silks. Apart from the obvious fighting attire by the romans...

Re: Men in skirts around the world - Straw Poll

I’m always dumbfounded by people who swear the Bible says men should dress like men in their defense of why men shouldn’t wear skirts. If asked what would Jesus do? He wore a dress. Call it a robe if you will, but that’s a dress. This is down to a bad translation of the original scripture into Engl...

Re: A plea for skirts as a degendering measure

Hi GFU, Welcome to the cafe. There is no one here who would argue against your eloquent plea, but we are tiny insignificant minority. It is only by venturing out into the big bad old world as men in skirts that we are likely to bring that degree of change in societal attitude. For myself, I rather ...

Re: A plea for skirts as a degendering measure

Still tiny but gaining momentum. The fashion industry is currently doing a lot of market research because a fundamental generational change is about to tip. It seems that some developments of Generation Y will be reinforced in Generation Z. Market data show that around every second consumer from Gen...

A plea for skirts as a degendering measure

Thesis: Skirts are the future because the future is going equal and therefore getting genderless Men tend to see themselves as the benchmark for everything. That seems to be part of the patriarchal heritage and is the main reason why some men believe to lose something if they copy anything from wom...

Re: Men in skirts around the world - Straw Poll

Men stopped being beautiful and become useful. That's how it is. We all know why. Carl Fluegel described it already in 1930 in detail in his Psychology of clothing. He coined the term "Great Masculine Renunciation". Today, you can't even use the adjective beautiful for a man. A man is handsome - at ...

Re: My look - I hope it looks normal

That's my favorite hemline, too - especially in summer.
It makes such a full skirt even airier.
The simple look with a polo shirt is very suitable for everyday use.
That's how I like to dress.

Re: Men's Dress Reform Party

Fluegel refers to developments in fashion that began with the French Revolution. This also goes with this: The French Republic emerged with a male, bourgeois rule, just as it already existed in the Netherlands, Switzerland, and United Kingdom. The sans-culottes were the pants of the working class. T...
