Looks like I'm first to comment on the Hornet article site. Come on, guys, let's get some more positive comments out there.

Years ago the concept of Men in Skirts was shown on the Catwalk.....Off the catwalk David Bowie wore his dress as a "Drag Garment " on a Record Cover....
At the Skirt Café ....Our Men in Skirts have taken the route which they individually choose....We are progressing forward , each in his individual style

I do not feel that The Skirt Café Members will ever accept the male styles from the catwalk.......Many of the male styles are just OLD HAT.....weeladdie

For some reason the headline reminded me of the headlines proclaiming "This is the year of the Linux desktop" which I've been seeing for at least 10 years. Yeah, a slight bump in social acceptance from 1.4% to 1.6% isn't an earth-shaking disruption. Wake me when 20 to 40% of mainstream media features men in skirts on a regular basis that make no more a big deal out of it than they do men wearing earrings or women wearing shirts tailored for men.

Don't get me wrong, I do agree the world is changing. I just don't expect to see a marked difference in cultural attitudes while I'm alive on this planet.

B.C.???? [0]

[0] Aside from the normal Before Christ.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

The article is a rehash of something that was originally written in GQ. The Hornet article does reference the original GQ text. If you read the original it is more interesting and detailed with several links to go and explore.
