Preaching to the converted, I fear. But maybe the idea will somehow seep out to the friends of the fashionistas or to people who chance upon one of these articles.
"One possible test for whether the world is ready is whether heterosexual women would be happy with their boyfriends/partners/husbands wearing skirts in public. Personally, I don’t know how I would feel about it. Sure, I think that men’s fashion is boring – that it could do with some variation – and sure, I’m fine when men I don’t know wear skirts around me, but to be in a sexual relationship with a skirt-wearer? I don’t know if I’m there yet. He’d have to be extremely masculine in every other sense (whatever ‘extremely masculine’ means). And even then…
What do you think? Are we ready for men’s skirts again? Could you date a skirt-wearer? And what about accessories and footwear – could you go out with a man who wears necklaces, handbags or heels?"
I have no problem wearing a skirt outside of the house - the main thing that stops me is MOH and she seems to have the same feelings as the author of the article. It also appears quite common among other contributors to this site - acceptance among men who are in a very distant relationship but a different matter for those close to them.
