Now that is a very telling statement. It tells you all you need to know about a certain type of person in a country that claims to be the land of the free. Well said.

In Appalachia, a man could wear a gun and a skirt.

I never carried a firearm while wearing a skirt, but I did wield a mean caulking gun one time while sealing up some crevices around the house.

I dare anyone to stop me, lest I break out my trusty Arrow staple gun with the long staples in the stock.

I'll shoot yer eye out!

That sounds like a good defence against loud-mouthed bigots.

If I didn't know better, looking at the comments, I would say that it was most likely an attack from some hostile nation, trying to set USA and Americans in a very bad standing.
It is only to hope that the persons behind these comments only represent a very small group in American society.

For the sake of good order, I'm 100% hetero but I, to the full, respect that other men and women have other sexual preferences. And I don't believe that these are or can be a function of the way boys - or their (gay) parents - dress.

Addendum

"Speak softly and carry a BIG stick" -

Big stick ideology, big stick diplomacy, big stick philosophy, or big stick policy refers
to an aphorism often said by the 26th president of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt; "speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far".
"YES SKIRTING MATTERS"!
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !
