OUT IN PUBLIC

General discussion of skirt and kilt-based fashion for men, and stuff that goes with skirts and kilts.

OUT IN PUBLIC

Postby Happy-N-Skirts » Mon May 13, 2019 5:26 pm

We did some traveling over the weekend for birthdays and Mother's Day. We visited our son and his family We stayed in a nearby hotel because they already have a housefull with four kids. The following day we visited my 94 year old mother who lived about two more hours away. I enjoy wearing skirts while driving. Much more comfortable, cool, and the absence of an inseam tight against my crotch. I like skirts to be right above the knees.

Each time we stopped for a "winkie tink," fill up with "Tesla" fuel, or in a restaurant, store, or hotel I was wearing a skirt. I don't wear skirts around family members, therefore I need to change in to or out of something more comfortable. I roll up my skirt or shorts and carry them into a store and change in the restroom.

As soon as I put on a skirt I felt a sense of relief with how comfortable I was. No one noticed, stared, gawked, pointed, or commented about what I was wearing.

I’ve often resorted to the public toilets for a quick change when approaching a no-skirt zone. It sucks! However, with opposition at home I’m not about to trigger an argument by appearing to known people in a skirt.

With a skirt, you can change in a parking lot, or really anywhere, without flashing anyone. Pull the shorts/pants on under the skirt, then take the skirt off. Reverse the process to change into a skirt. Just saying, it's one of those extra benefits of wearing a skirt.

Indeed, I've changed back and forth right in the driver seat of my car. (NOT while driving of course, always parked safely in a parking lot.) There is a little pull off right outside of Blue Ridge VA where I often change prior to visiting with Dad. Though if I'm just visiting family and coming straight home I'm normally just wear pants all the way [0]. If I'm planning on doing a little sight seeing along the way then I'll probably wear a skirt and change out.

[0] I'm working on taking Dad to a doctors appointment later in June that he's worried about. Since it will be nothing but travel and "business" (no leisure) I'll probably just wear pants the whole time in the interest of saving time.

Having to go through this ridiculous ritual used to irritate me on principle, but then I just lowered the bar considerably on what I expected from human open-mindedness and intellect and it has greatly helped me to accept the ignorance on the great wild.

I don't wear skirts in certain company for the same reason I wouldn't don a boogie man costume in a Kindergarten class. They're ignorant as to what's going on and they don't know any better....

... but at least kindergartners can learn, no shame in being temporarily ignorant. Adults can be just plain stupid.

I would think that a fair portion of us have gone through this process and I am no exception.
In my case, those occasions did nothing for my mental health, in particular my anxiety levels.
My memory of the first skirted encounters are well etched in my memory and are not particularly pleasant either.
However, they were the beginning of the liberation too. I discovered that the secrecy was essentially destructive to me and I chose to exercise my Gods given freedom.
Like Moon, I will wear skirts or trousers as the occasion demands and mainly on my own terms.
I am not advocating anything to anyone else here but that was my path.
Yours will be yours.

That is a great situation to get to; finding the joy of wearing skirts AND ..... realising you can do it in public and no-one really cares.

That is another good stage to reach; feeling that you don't have to prove a point anymore. I had to look at a job of repairing a stone wall at the Golf Club and knowing that they had some sort of dress code, I wore pants.

I have gotten to the point of getting up in the morning and getting dressed. The fact that I put on a skirt or dress with out thinking about it means I fully regard skirts and dresses as the normal form of dress for me. :D

When I go out and about the town shopping or going to a restaurant or movie theater I no longer worry about what are people going to say or do. It is just normal every day doings. :D

I do not even notice stares or laughter that may be going on in the back ground, I am over all of that. :)

I am so happy that I don't have anyone (read that wife or significant other or family members) that try to make me not wear what I want. All of them are just fine with it. :D

:whistle: Hi I am Fred and I wear skirts and dresses all of the time. :hooray:
