Re: Overly Flamboyant Outfits Detrimental to Mainstreaming MIS?

I love the idea of trying to create rules for breaking the rules :?: For me anything legal and decent is OK. OTT is great occasionally! The flamboyant folk are doing you a massive favour, liken it to a fancy sports car in the supermarket car park, everybody looks at the Lamborghini and so fails to n...

Tatler

Hi all

Stumbled across this article today:

Quite surprised to find Tatler covering this sort of stuff.

Re: Pride

I think Pride is very important, the freedoms achieved for LGBT folk in the UK could easily be whittled away by the efforts of minority pressure groups over time. Same Sex Marriage in this country was opposed by more Conservative MPs than supported it and they introduced the Bill.

Re: Young Again (Radio 4)

You can listen to it without having an account here: https://www.listennotes.com/it/podcasts/young-again-bbc-radio-4-pejknQgOmEA/ For starters Kirsty Young called his enthusiasm for clothes of the opposite sex a fetish... there was an unnecessary sexual undercurrent. I did like the rather obvious ob...

Young Again (Radio 4)

Kirsty Young was chatting to Sir Grayson Perry on Radio 4 (UK Radio Channel). She managed to infuriate me at least once as did Sir Grayson a couple of times. Worth a list on iPlayer or BBC Sounds if you have it. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/5lp2J9VbmDHdBVx0YqCrktD/grayson-perry-seven-th...

Re: circle skirts and double circles

I have three skirts that are not quite full circle skirts but close, they are made/sold by 'Hell Bunny', the great thing is they have pockets if you choose the right style. I wear an old one for garage work and gardening as it allows full movement and isn't too long, falling to just below the knees....

Re: let's list why we like skirts

What I am attempting to say and quite clearly failing to is that if we just based the differences between males and females on their sex then either gender wouldn't be needed or wouldn't exist. All the other stuff including emotions, clothes, lifestyle etc are not important, they are only perceived ...

Re: let's list why we like skirts

This is also factually incorrect, as gender is influenced by biological and environmental factors. Saying it's a social construction doesn't help us. In a quiet non inflammatory way I would like to suggest that taking gender away would make life a whole lot easier. Imagine a world where some young ...

Re: let's list why we like skirts

I belong to the 'gender is a man made construct' school of thought.

Gender really gets on my wick, my sex is male my gender is none.

Re: let's list why we like skirts

I have always liked skirts and dresses since I can remember. Nowadays, I like them simply because it is what I am used to wearing. I prefer dresses although getting the style right is a lot harder they allow for more freedom when required, free from waistband restrictions. If skirts and dresses actu...

Re: Non-posting/inactive members?

I personally think that blokes wearing skirts is not an issue for most folk nowadays and with Social Media with it's ego boosting 'likes' etc giving instant gratification why would somebody type away on an old fashioned keyboard?

Re: snag tights

I have placed a few orders from Snag Tights over the last couple of years and they seem to be good quality, wearing a burgundy pair now. Last year they had a lucky dip offer for £10 which was for 3 random pairs of tights in your size and favoured category. They sent me lime green tights with bats on...

Lurking in the UK

Hi there

I used to post occasionally in Chris's Atrium a long time ago.

Now resident in Northampton UK and non-gender conforming for most of my 57 years I fancied replying to the Snag Tights post so joined up.
