Having looked at the video the thing that grates on me is not the skirts, although some of them seem inappropriate, it's the heels. The heels are just OTT. Sorry, I don't mean to cause offence to Mark or any other members that wear heels, the images just seem wrong and too much. Sorry, sorry, sorry.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

My personal dissonance-point comes with spike heels which are (1) inherently unstable and (2) can produce insane ground-pressures.

I wear heels, but those are typically two or three inches in height and are either block-heel types or wedges.

The smallest heel I have is on my court shoes which are 2-inchers and have a heel area of about 1.25 square inches. At my nominal mass of 180 pounds, that computes to a ground-pressure of 144 pounds per square inch explaining handily why they're useless on soft ground [1][2]. If pi*r^2 is to be believed and my maths are right, a 5/16" diameter spike heel would create a ground-pressure of a staggering 2347 pounds per square inch at my mass. In other words, most of the live load on spikes must be carried without putting the heels down save at a standing rest or only momentarily whilst in motion.

[1] Formula used: mass (in pounds) / surface-area of the heel. For circular heel cross-sections, area = pi * (diameter/2)^2
[2] The heels sink into the ground unless I'm standing on something hard. This makes locomotion difficult.

When I tried on a pair of heels, I found most of the weight shifted to the front ball(s) of my feet. Depending on the posture, there can be very little weight actually on the heel.
