men in business skirt

Discussion of fashion elements and looks that are traditionally considered somewhat "femme" but are presented in a masculine context. This is NOT about transvestism or crossdressing.

Moonshadow, you know fine that women will suffer no negative consequences of having their picture taken in a skirt, but men might. So it's the men being brave.

Agreed there are plenty of good outfits there. How men will be able to dress for the office when equality and common sense prevail.
Keep on skirting,

Ralph, I know all too well about the resistance thing. I don't push her any more. Incidentally I've been wearing a skirt every day for most of the day and she hasn't winged once about it. Various skirts, too, worn to match the top I was wearing. If she ever showed any interest in this site or any pictures of guys in skirts then I will enthusiastically involve her. Until then I do what I can. I haven't worn a dress around her yet and I have a few LBD's.
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.

In the last few hundred years women have elevated themselves from being more or less, property to their present day liberation and the continue to make constant gains. Men meanwhile have to survive in an ever shrinking box.... a coffin of their own design. The answer is simple, all the man has to do is just say "no more!" and do his own thing, but alas he won't.

So... let him perish if that's his will.

True, and of course women have made gains by being brave, not taking "no" for an answer, etc. I agree that men collectively need to have the courage to push the walls outwards, before we are squeezed even further.

When women started to move into men's jobs, you can see why men didn't want to reciprocate. The men's jobs were better paid. But when women put trousers on, the only thing stopping men trying skirts was that it is seen as demeaning to behave like a woman. That's easy to see, but what I don't understand is why men retreat from anything once women move in. Horse riding, for example. A long time ago everyone did it, it was that or walk. Nowadays you will find very few boys at riding lessons. Why not? Can't boys enjoy it just as much as girls? All kinds of fashions: cardigans, dungarees, high heels, the list is endless. Why can't things be unisex?
Keep on skirting,

I've yet to see a picture of me online in a skirt, other than a couple of blurry ones on here. I did catch someone taking a picture of me on the train, wasn't sure, but the malicious grin made me suspect. I thought about going up to him and offering a better pose, but decided not to push it, just gave him a relaxed smile and turned back to my paper. Wonder if it made it anywhere? As I work retail, and use transit, several thousand people have seen my skirts anyway.

I dunno.... but I do know that I'm finished waiting on men to catch up. If they want to run and hide from anything and everything that might be perceived as "feminine"... then to hell with 'em.. I find nothing virtuous or otherwise worthy of emulation in the modern western man... just a bunch of insecure pansy assed bullies that they constantly beat their chest and harp on everything they don't understand.

Those should ask for your permission to post it.
