NO POLITICS WHATSOEVER!
This thread is about building each other up, not tearing each other down....
One thing to be clear, though I have considered losing the skirts off and on, I've about settled myself on continuing on my skirted journey despite what naysayers might take issue with. It think, my former thread was just to get a few things off my chest, and perhaps a subliminal plea to get things back on track here at the cafe. Some of the post have been downright depressing and I don't think we need that now.. we need to be constructive not destructive, and sitting around moaning about things we can't change is normally destructive, at least as far as morale goes.Fred In Skirts wrote:Cheer up Moon, And remember that the bullies only win if you let them.

I know it is hard to stand up to the bullies of the world, but you have been doing a fantastic job of it. While I don't live in the same area you do I too must face bullies as well and I just send them on their way. I then forget about them and smile and say to myself self you won another one!
As it is, we're still free to do this today. Tomorrow is anyone's guess but we can cross the bridge later if we need to.
I appreciate the feedback! Sometimes, even during my "good days" it still takes a little mental "nudging" to still get out there and be myself.Uncle Al wrote:I FULLY understand where you're coming from, yet, I TOTALLY AGREE
with Fred-in-skirts. You've overcome quite a bit and the support that
Jenn & Amber give you is outstanding
So long as the resistance remains verbal from a distance and doesn't cross the line into physical assault (and I doubt it will), then I'm fine to not worry about it. I like the styles I wear and I like the feeling of the breeze between my legs. I'm not going to stop just because of the ongoing social war taking place in the world at large. Besides, I've got a Florida trip coming up in the dog days of summer in an area of the country that's known for being downright hot and sticky that time of year... do you think I'd really suffer through that in dreadful black pants??
I did get a chance to get to Ollies in Bristol VA to purchase an air conditioner and yes, I wore my black knee length skirt with blue top. Just like the old times, I didn't notice any negative feedback, though I really wasn't looking.
I offer my well wishes and blessings to your brother-in-law, may he make a full and speedy recovery.Lately I've only been able to read the posts as my Brother-in-Law, 14years
my junior, has had triple bypass surgery this past Wednesday. He's back in
ICU due unexpected complications. He is my wife's 'baby brother'.

I see it even where I live but refuse (so far) to let it sway me. The world -- perhaps more now than in 1930s Germany -- is increasingly a hateful place, and there seems to be no moderating force to counter it. i still receive more positive signal than negative, but even I am getting uncertain.
"but even I am getting uncertain", I think it will be okay. I plan to just keep quietly doing my own thing....
YES! Say it louder for those in the back of the room!john62 wrote:Please let's get back to skirts.
