Not relevant anymore.

Someone wrote…

After finding the courage to walk the streets in leggings and a long cardigan, I understood how foolish it was to wait for something similar to appear in men’s fashion. Phrases like “clothing choices for men are limited” don’t seem relevant anymore.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I wish I had the self confidence for that. The one thing I miss about living female is the pretty clothes and shoes.

    I came into a co-worker’s cubical on Friday and he put is hand up in front of his face and made a “Whoa!” noise about how loud and colourful my blouse was. It was bright, a pretty bold almost Navajo print. It was a man’s shirt, though (left over right). I had matching socks, too, but he couldn’t see them.

    Sometimes I think of how old watchmakers adorned and embellished the inside of fine watches. Nobody ever really looked at this artwork, but people liked thinking of it as being there. I like to think of myself like that sometimes – not much to look at, but a lot going on inside.

    Say more about this!! I just bought my first skirt and leggings but haven’t been able to work up the courage to strut my stuff out of my room. Curves are beautiful, and completely androgynous (which is why I love leggings so much). I would love to be out and live independently of gendered clothes..

    I feel like I continually tell people around me (especially my parents) how silly it is to call a shirt, threads, a gender. I wear what I like and what is comfy!
