Shoot! I do a lot of that myself and I am a straight guy. I get pedis with nail polish, wear skirts and dresses, use feminine scents, and I have even used make up as well. I am a man and will continue to be a man, but doing things I like in spite of what the rest of the crazy world thinks. :jocolor: :geek:

I scored seven out of 16, leading off with "drape myself in velvet". I don't exactly get the lasers for the backside, but maybe that's just me (although I enjoy LASERs for other things :twisted: ), and "yoga pants" are a "No!" for 90+% of the population. Quilting I can support, mainly because I'm a bit of an artistic one, though mainly with music and technology (which are closer than one might suspect). I cry frequently when the need arises, both from happiness and sadness -- and sometimes for beauty or a remembrance of a memory from long ago. I prefer cuddling to sex. And I prefer skirts to trousers. Cute is cute, no matter what it's packaging -- and is worthy in its own right.

Yet, with all of the above, I am entirely, completely, and wholly a regular old bloke. I don't need labels to define me because I am not afraid to heed my own inner self. I have every reason to believe I'm a throwback to a time where men were allowed these things and were not reviled for them. It's time to take manhood back and regain our fundamental rights as human beings.

There: I've gone and said it.

"Order fruity drinks without being judged."

Really?

Ok, sorry my bad. That artical was a little lame. I had just been watching for just about anything related. And no, I personally am not into yoga pants lol

I don't know. I drank a heck of a lot of strawberry margaritas back in the 1980s. It was a phase, though -- I grew out of it.

If what you mean by 'yoga pants' is what is worn by the chap in this rather sensual video, then I think they are fine. I have a couple of pairs myself and I love the sheer lightness and comfort of them.

I don't know about the pants but I love the skirt. Purple in colour and ankle length, just full enough at the hem to allow a full stride and to twirl. I would wear that skirt in a heartbeat.
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.

No, I'd say those were harem pants, or perhaps there's a different name for men's.

Buy yoga pants are like mid-calf running tights.

Yes - it's lovely, isn't it!

There have been a few occasions in the past when I have been ceilidh dancing wearing a long(-ish) skirt. They do flow beautifully and I think it definitely enhances one's dancing.

I've worn long, full skirts at ceilidhs for several years, they make a huge difference to the style and the fun of dancing.

I remember hearing some years ago from a woman whose husband was having problems learning to dance properly. In desperation she made him wear one of her skirts whilst practicing at home - and suddenly he 'got' it.
There is no such thing as a normal person, only someone you don't know very well yet.
