it strongly suggests he has a gender identity issue and a wedding is hardly the best occasion to announce that to others.
They have the gender identity issue, not him.  If he is happy to dress that way, he obviously has no issue with it.
There is no such thing as a normal person, only someone you don't know very well yet.

To be fair it is society and social pressure to 'stay within the rules' that's at fault, I've never heard any reasonable argument as to why guys shouldn't be able to wear feminine clothing, this really shouldn't be an issue, if the old guard had their way we'd all still be wearing suits and top hats (or cloth caps for the working class) and know our place, lol.

Good on those rules breakers

Well.... this debate is easy for me...!

I've never been to someone's wedding, I've never been invited to one that I could realistically attend.

Problem solved! :wink:

Stu,

I suggest you reread the headline; the bride, who was the young fellow's mother, was perfectly okay with him dressing as a bridesmaid/flowergirl/whatever. It was HER wedding.

You also said something to the effect that marriage should only be for heterosexual couples who can propagate the species. That was a surprising position for someone who lives in Sweden where same-sex marriages have been legally recognized for a long enough period that social scientists there felt they could legitimately compare them to heterosexual marriages.

Marriages between two men turned out to be the most stable.

Social norms aren't changed by Congress or Parliament; they're changed by a sufficient number of people ignoring the existing ones and publicly practicing new ones.

That is so wrongheaded and full of poppycock !
Married couples don't need to be able to conceive to propagate the species - there is the adoption option !

As well as two women !
Further note the marriages don't have to last forever - just long enough for the propagated (adopted) species to propagate the next generation !

Bad enough that we have had plagues famine and all that 4 horsemen of the Apocalypse stuff and now the C19 Virus thinning the herd !
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

As a matter of fact not. Marriages between two women, as a group, were the least stable. Maybe whoever said women don't really know what they want, knew what he was talking about.
