Journalists, sociologists, and artists are looking into the history of skirted men and sharing their findings with the public at large.
Instances of men wearing skirts in non-traditional regions is nothing new, but now the world is starting to take notice.
For the curious and the novice, this how-to guide will tell a man all he needs to know about finding, wearing, and accessorizing skirts.
It might be odd for a man to wear a skirt, but why is it taboo? My curiosity with skirts as a gendered construct really began in the wake of North Carolina’s HB2 (“bathroom bill”) debacle, and my pursuit to understand gender issues is ongoing. Many decades ago, gender equality afforded women the right to wear pants, but men never started wearing skirts. There are a lot of reasons for this and a lot of reasons why men should consider adding skirts to their wardrobe.
Society views women who appropriate masculine symbols as stronger while society views men who appropriate feminine symbols as weaker. How did this come to be?
Call it a skirt, call it a kilt, call it whatever you want, but I dare someone to call this anything less than masculine!
Gender equality is harmed, not helped, by toilet legislation and policy, and compelling an individual to use one facility or another is entirely reminiscent of the old-south segregation. In a very real way, it very broadly paints a minority class as dangerous and the majority class as vulnerable.
Gender equality is harmed, not helped, by “all-gender” toilets and, more generally, by gender-segregated toilets. Declaring special toilets for nonbinary persons is, in practice, an insult rather than an accommodation.
