Y'all (Stu, rode-kater) may be right... I can't read minds after all.
I know my styles tend to generate some pretty ugly glares from lots of folks, men and women, but it's possible it may be more the style of skirt rather than the fact that I'm wearing a skirt.
I am, after all, fully aware that my style doesn't exactly square among "women's looks" either. I'm not insanely popular in any clique... just a lone wolf...
I honestly don't know what the source is of the hostility, but it's there... sure enough.
But I like what I like, and if I am forced to wear a kilt, or some other skirt style I don't care for, then I might as well just wear pants. I've often told Jenn, my life decisions have been in spite of my social life. I've always been a loner, never fitting in anywhere, and I've got the empty driveway and sparse call history to prove it.
I'm not playing the world's smallest violin here, I'm perfectly fine with this. When I made the choice to start wearing skirts, I didn't have to win too many people over, or worry about being shunned from society... I've always been shunned anyway...
So this was easy as pie!
So this is why I don't worry about these petty labels. Call me a sissy fag, call me toxic, call me feminine, call me queer, call me sick, disgusting, call me whatever they want... I've been called ugly things my whole life... I am what I am, and I'm fine with that. I don't owe anyone anything.
So as for any assumption that I [as a man] am somehow "toxic"... meh... maybe I am. I dunno... doesn't matter. I know what I am... I know the sins I've committed.
