Moon, you are exceptional. Starting when you did took guts. Jenn's a lucky gal to have you. But even you don't wear at work. Still, you are the exception to what I am talking about.
I appreciate the sentiment, though I don't think I'm exceptional. I'm just a guy that took advantage of a liberty that was already available to me. I didn't run afoul of any laws or ordinances, I've never crossed government officials with this, and for the most part the general public pretty much left me alone.
But I understand what you mean, there is a risk for many men of losing out on aspects of life he may value, such as some employment opportunities, finding a woman, becoming estranged from family. Indeed, the man may have to start all over, depending on the intolerance of his original situation.
I will add though, that I believe there is a skirt for a man that would work in just about any social situation. Not every man needs to go whole hog and wear feminine tops, paint his nails, wear floral patterns or boho styles. There are basic plain colored knee length skirts that resemble short pants, and generally don't stand out to any major extent, and for all but the most formal of occations, there is always the kilt, which is appropriate for occasions like weddings and such.
Other occasions like meeting a senator, congressman, even the governor or president, it's perfectly acceptable to wear a respectable skirted outfit. Remember, they work for us as public servants, they're not kings, queens or divinely ordained.
Sitting in court? Eeehhh... depends on the situation, if you're a witness or juror then I'd say anything office appropriate, leaning towards "conservative", if you're defendant, wear nice pants... or maybe you're already wearing an orange jump suit!
Try to stay out of court though....
