Re: Scottish Hate Crime law

Thanks greenboots for info. I was aware there were concerns from various religious groups and common concerns from those who wouldn't be in the same room eg. Orange Order and the Catholic church. It was my understanding the Braccadale report wanted to make these offences aggravators (fairly self exp...

Re: Scottish Hate Crime law

I don't know if I've entirely understood the context or meaning of the quote but the broad idea is the same however you look at it. Its also contradictory as some who oppose the whole gender theory do argue everyone can dress as they like within limits of decency, like we no longer consider women in...

Scottish Hate Crime law

This is mainly for those in Scotland who may be aware of the proposed hate crime laws under discussion. It includes a seemingly innocuous reference to 'transgender identity', and though this forum is never intended to be about trans or crossdressing issues, male skirt wearing does rightly or wrongly...

Kilt making workshops

Obviously kilt making is quite a leap from hobby sewing of skirts I started, but do any Scottish or UK members know courses or similar that get started on kilt making at reasonable time and expense? The Keith school takes 5 years which is not feasible at this stage in life, Edinburgh Academy have a ...

Re: Boy 8 told long hair has to go

How many on here would have happily walked the streets looking as he does? Absolutely would have. But maybe kids and indeed their families think its more acceptable to be 'trans'. I know one just like him born a boy but changed to a girls name and relocated to live as a girl, only some teachers kno...

Re: Boy 8 told long hair has to go

There should be a "fuss" over any kid treated this way, cis or trans.

Boy 8 told long hair has to go

Not a skirt issue but similar on gender conformity with hairstyles. A boy with lovely long hair being told by possible upper schools he would have to crop it all off. Reasonable asking to tie it back same as girls. Naturally he gets mistaken for a girl but he knows he is a boy and is happy as he is....

Re: Has the attention on transgendered individuals helped us?

I like your analysis Dust but its a sorry state of affairs. Likewise so many transmen feel beards are manlier than a scraped away and partly cut face years of shaving does. On the bathroom question there is a meme circulating of 2 bathrooms with "yelled at" and "beat up" on the doors but single (uni...

Re: Mum lets son wear dress to her wedding

As brilliant parents they are this should really be as newsworthy as a girl wearing trousers, albeit in a wedding that would stand out more but not make the press. We can only look forward to.

Re: A Contrarian View of Miss-identification

I know that "misgendering" a transwoman who wants to be addressed as a woman can provoke very unpleasant reactions so maybe this worker was being cautious. Theres a Gamestop video thats done the rounds "scuse me sir.............scuse me its ma-am" angry overgrown kid.

Re: Home made skirt

Multiple companies have came and gone with their attempts at a men's skirt. Rebranding is a tough nut to crack. In the attempts to rebrand the skirt at the very least as unisex. I am glad companies are trying. Midasclothing are quite a loss not least as another UK company, some designs I could take...

Home made skirt

I have finally joined the ranks of DIY skirt with my new sewing machine. Only made a couple of very basic skirts but its very obvious they are measured to my shape and size not an approximate female design thats flowing around the hips or off in some other way. Not confident enough to make a kilt ye...

Re: Has the attention on transgendered individuals helped us?

I can only speak for the situation in Scotland and broadly the UK, but the transgender debate has become toxic to put it mildly. Regrettably experience over the years has shown there is little acceptance of a man openly wearing 'womens' clothes as a man, and more sinisterly was thought to frighten c...

Non wrap kilt

Is it right there was an early version of the utilikilt that wasn't wrap but went on and off like trousers, front fly and button. Still rugged and pleated so clearly a kilt not skirt. Are there other kilts like this?
