That's Mark as in Mark. A batch of his selfies went viral.

Predictable comments in the daily mail. What people forgot is that anyone has the right to wear anything and it doesn’t matter if on the part of the observer they think it looks ridiculous: it’s their problem, not the individual choosing to be who they want to be.

I’ve also stated this on another thread. You’re right. It’s best to ignore the DM readers, bless them and their bulging brood of prejudices.... ;-)

It amazes me that anyone would buy that s****. And how the so-called journalists who work there sleep at night passes all understanding.

P.T. Barnum summed it all up perfectly well over a century ago, "There is a sucker born every minute." This, of course, gives rise to the entrepreneurial mindset of, "It is a moral imperative to separate the sucker from his money."

And that, dear reader, is how civilisations are helped to die.

Looks like Mark has gone viral....I see the article in at least 8 different publications, albeit pretty much just the same copy. Google Married Dad in heels... or the like if you wish to explore more. Congratulations Mark, it will probably be a burp in the wind, but more positive exposure than we usually get!

Plea to Mark.
Can you please send me several autographs.
I want to sell them on eBay.
Looks like you’ve got more than your 15 minutes of fame. 😀😀👀

This has made its way through the LGBT News sites recently, too, and with overwhelmingly positive reaction.

Rihanna thinks he's cool and has "slid into his DM's" on Instagram. Very positive comments overall :wink:

A positive article.

The original article (top of thread) is wrong. Mark does NOT wear dresses. Lazy journalism.

I so echo Mark’s look (only I’m nowhere near as good at pulling it off). I’m wearing much the same at the moment. Female gendered from the waist down, male from the waist up - but of course the whole rig is just clothes to me. No gender.
