Lol. Anyway isn't that what those Swiss Army knife tweezers are for?dillon wrote:I’ve heard it said that ear hair is an indicator of testosterone. If that’s the case, I must be more virile than ever. Please explain that to my man-parts, someone.
Of course it could be that the hair follicles from my thinning noggin have formed their own migrant caravans and are using my ears like tunnels beneath the border wall.

I guess wearing a skirt while driving a car is a form of auto gynephilia Just what I need another mental condition to deal with
Thanks for guffaw!! Clearly an old guys amusement as we enter the age of where our social calendar reads: Dr. ....; Dr. .....; Dr. .....
As it was discouragement at the number of skirt wearing men and the apparent "elder" age of those posting here that I opened this thread, I am now a bit more optimistic as another one of the "explanations" here rings true: The young guys are too busy making a living and having fun, they do not have time to piddle around posting on sites like Skirtcafe, and they do have Facebook and other social media they use daily whereas some of us old geezer abhor the cold and inadroit play of language and social connection found by the likes of tweeting -- example, King Twit's* daily disseminations -- so this site may accurately reflect an age bias of posters but skew the age stats of skirt wearing men as a whole. Or, maybe that too is is just another afflictions of isolated ancient synapses!
* Without apology; for ye lucky enough to not be Yankee centric, the reference to King Twit is the trump card -- who ain't funny.
I could not have said this better. You echo my sentiments exactly!oldsalt1 wrote: ↑Wed Mar 29, 2017 9:02 pmAs one of the older members of the cafe. It seems to me that a lot of the members are in their late 60'0 early 70's there seems to be a recent influx of younger members which is great.
I can't say why there are so many older members. . Could be that we have all reached a point in life where we are tired of doing whats expected and are going to do what we want.
could be that we just don't give a flying F--k about what people think.
Could be that many of us have a few less restrictions about jobs.
This is just a blind stab but I think that if you averaged the ages of say the 25 most active members you would probably end up about 60 years old

I'm 59 at the moment, and getting older by the day, so the above is not a stable number by any means. I felt welcomed here from the outset when I joined sometime in the early naughties, and my sense of style has been continually evolving.
Lt. Dan makes some very good points about the age of the membership here when it comes to matters of stability and comfort as to where we are in life. I'm very glad that we have some "young blood" here in the community, and wish them the very best as I was once there (as were all of the "elder" members at one point in time). I'm also very happy that some of the younger set have the bravery to stand up to the injustices imposed on male vs. female fashions; I would not have had the guts to do that in the early 1980s. Not even close.
Would I like to see more 20-somethings take up skirt-wearing? Absolutely. That sentiment also goes for all the other age groups. The more that challenge the status quo the better. "Many hands makes for light work." as the old saying goes.
Of note here is the "THE MODERATOR" isn't one individual but a team: a team comprised of an odd number of individuals who when things get tight vote on matters and we go with the majority. As the site administrator, technically I possess the power to override decisions, but never have and keep a pledge never to unless there are compelling technical reasons to do so (and in matters of moderation there never are). Also of particular note is how seldom we need to get involved with things. This is both by design and by good providence thanks to the nature of the community. We do not need to intervene the overwhelming percentage of time. One of the things that I cherish about this place is the high quality of discourse, and I fervently hope that holds -- a small island of civility in a seemingly wholly uncivilised world.Under the watchful eye of “THE MODERATOR” we’re kept in order, sometimes.
I have no dealings with Facebook or Twitter; however, what I hear from others is those are mostly a swamp of hate and general incivility, and I frankly don't have time for that noise.

To be fair, very few people would, myself included... That was a different time, and I wouldn't be surprised if old crossdressing laws were still being enforced in some more backward parts of the U.S. in those days.
Ironically though, crop tops were acceptable... and guys seems to like their shirts buttoned pretty low...
But then again, I was just a snot nosed fussy toddler in those days...
We all have the tendency to make simple things difficult, but the spirit that abides within us achieves its own ends by making all difficult things simple.
