Re: Gender Neutral Dress Code

They can get a feeling of it when they are walking around in the bathroom with a towel or robe around the body. With a skirt, it gets only better. :wink:
I have used this argument a few times but I don't know if it had any effect.

Re: Interfaith Marriage

My paternal grandfather was a Lutheran Protestant. He always said that he would not force a belief or religion on his children. When they are old and wise enough, they can decide for themselves was his point of view. As far as I know only one daughter became Catholic because she wanted to marry a Ca...

Re: Another (almost) Skirty Scot

It is amazing that I'm in the same position as a few other members, like Caultron. It is identical to the last letter. My wife accept it but will not go out with me in a skirt. She makes an exception for kilts but only to a few selected places. In the house there are no restrictions as long as it is...

Re: Common Terminology

I remember (and enjoyed) the 60s very well. But if I then had tried to touch the skin below the hem with a relaxed arm, I would have been in the same position as the Hollywood abusers of this day. :oops: :wink:

Re: Another useful Sainsbury's skirt

I side with Mugman. I exchanged pants for skirts/kilts because of comfort in wearing. I did some experiments with shoes, tights and dresses but that is not raising my level of comfort. So I don't go with that, at least for the time being. The fabric of the skirts/kilt is more or less identical to my...

Re: Gender Neutral Dress Code

It has been said that change starts with the young. I think that the young may be inspired by a group of (mainly) aging iconoclasts. Kids will see these guys wearing skirts in defiance of "trousers tyranny", and start to question the dreary old dress code. :idea: I hope you are right but I'm afraid...

Re: First steps in tights

Today was quite chilly and I was all day in jeans. Around 9PM I was about to go out to get some pizzas. A nice moment to get used to the feeling of wearing tights. I put the tights on and my jeans. When I started to walk it felt if I was without any pants. I did not feel the fabric of the jeans agai...

The Maria Callas version gives me goosebumps every time I hear it.

Where are the composers from 100-150 years ago?

Re: Science Fiction is now Science Fact

Alumi num ? When I was at school in the 1960s, our chemistry teacher started talking about aloominum. We all thought it was some sort of new metal as we'd never heard of it ... until he realised what he was saying and explained he meant alumin ium . He was English but had been teaching in the USA b...

Re: Does this bring back memories?

It certainly brings back memories. But this type of music was much too polished to my taste. I think it was meant to be liked by the general public, as an anti Rock and Roll escape. I was already in the more jazzy music, from New Orleans to the big bands of the 40s and 50s. But with this type of mus...

Re: Halloween plans skirted, kilted or other?

I did not go out for a Halloween party. It is not part of the Dutch folklore so I have no inner urge to go. But when I went shopping Saturday evening, some party-goers got me scared for a second. There was a party organized nearby and while driving some people suddenly crossed the street from behind...

That is why I try to get 100 den or something close to it. If I shave my legs, I have to sleep in the doghouse. :wink:

Re: Hello from Holland

Welcome from another Dutchie in the USA. The environment here is not quite as relaxed as in Europe, it is slowly getting more accepted. Even with the more conservative wind blowing now, there is some progress. Enjoy your skirting. The more you go out in public, the more it seems to get normal. Not o...
