Welcome to the forum, toyota1997! Feel free to tell us some more about yourself in the introductions area.

A man can wear a skirt on the street: I've done it today, I did it on Thursday despite the presence of many possibly inebriated Weegies inside the pub and out. Have a read here about guys' first steps out in a skirt, then try and it yourself. And let us know how you get on!
Keep on skirting,

Alastair

The difference is, a face tattoo is more or less permanent. Head shaved may take months to grow back out to a customary length and heavily pierced body may take some time for the piercings to no longer be noticeable (not sure about that, I only have my ears pierced and you have to look closely to see the holes if I'm not wearing earrings). But wearing a skirt can revert to customary clothing in minutes with no sign that a skirt was being worn before.

I agree the analogy is imperfect.

Then again, the issue is wearing skirts customarily for a long time, perhaps the rest of one's life, as opposed to wearing a skirt once and then never again,
Courage, conviction, nerve, verve, dash, panache, guts, nuts, balls, gall, élan, stones, whatever. Get some and get skirted.
