The indisputable fact about skirts is that they are extremely comfortable to wear for both men and women. If one follows the cardinal rule of design; "form follows function", then it is obvious that the idea of restricting men from wearing skirts today is largely a fashion argument. Just as the idea of women wearing pant's can equally be argued as fashion in most casual living situations.
Do clothes need to be gender-specific? Will the time ever come when fashion is simply fashion?
It is a common phrase these days, but it is the 21st Century and people should be allowed to choose and wear clothing that suits their personalities. Why are skirts for women and pants are for both genders?
Why is a woman allowed to pick and chose between flat shoes, running shoes, construction boots and heels and a man is pretty much denied the same? How would any woman feel today if her employer will explicitly require her to wear only skirts and heels? Should it be sexist's opinion? Should it be harassment (or a form of harassment)?
A man should be able to wear whatever he prefers and feels ready to wear. One condition only...Appropriate grooming is a must!
If men can't wear skirts then women can't . If we have equality in everything else in America then why can't we have equality in dressing?If you were told that pants are illegal how would you feel? Would you stand up for yourself? If a man wants to wear a skirt let him ear a skirt!
Equality to fashion! There is no law against a man wearing a skirt like garment just a needed change in the way culture reacts here in the USA especially !!! Skirts are not sexual but just a garment that both men and women can wear. Should become common and found in all men's and women's clothing retail departments.
From a woman with a man who wears skirts, and dresses, in a very tasteful way, who looks so handsome and sexy in them I can't tell you. He's more comfortable and very much enjoyed them. I wish more men would just, man up, and wear whatever they want. If more men would do that then it wouldn't even be an issue. And how is it that a small hand full of fashion designers are the ones who get to determine what "we" are "supposed" to or "not supposed" to wear. That's totally lame.
We need the cash flow that this new industry would create. Men should not wear woman's skirts they should have skirts made just for men. Men should shave their legs also and this will create more jobs. Marketing new products. This will let the girls see more of their men.
Why do we say men and women are equal and then we have double standards? Men should be able to wear what ever they want, when every they want and not be looked down at for it. The thing men need to do is just say enough and put on a skirt and walk down the street, once that happen never look back.
I've been a closet cross dresser for years. Mainly because it is so sociably frowned upon. I am not gay ("not that there's anything wrong with that") but I love wearing woman's clothing. IDK, maybe I have been born a woman. I love the feel of silk and cashmere, etc. And heels and a nice matching bag, well...
And if wearing the outer clothing also meant wearing the underclothing, I'm OK. With that. Women would certainly be less likely to say "you don't know what I go through..."
Skirts, and that is correct, actually is a male garment for thousands of years.
I am a strong supporter for men's skirt fashion because I know that a skirt or nice jumper can fit a male body very well.
When men would wear more skirted garments they would take more care of their outfit and with that result they would take care much more about body and health. I like to help my husband dressing in a nice skirt, nice stockings and nice shirt/blouse with a jacket. He is wearing it not just for business, also when we are out in the evening for theater aor concert with friends in a long skirt. And when we are back home after a successful evening/ night, o la la........ I don't know why but it increasines love and partnership extremely for both of us. You should try it, and you never regret it.
I go to the mall and pass the girls stores and see on the mannequins all kinds of skirts. Woman have a lot of choices on clothing and I bought a few skirts for myself which I wear with tights. Especially in the winter I'm always looking for more and even wear sweater dresses. Mens fashion is boring and guys skirts are gonna be in.Stores soon..
If the question was "should men be allowed to wear skirts" then I would say yes obviously people should be allowed to do whatever they want. However as this wasn't the question I'll keep it relevant.
I don't think men should wear skirts for the same reason I don't think they should wear tights and high heels or doggy collars or saddles. Skirts were not designed for men. Maybe I'm a bit old fashioned but I just think that a man should be a man. I don't mean going off in to the woods to punch a bear, I don't even mean not moisturising, but really where is the cut off point?
Are men going to wear frilly panties and bras so that their moobs dont sag when they get older? If we keep going down this road then we will eventually come to a point where it's difficult to distinguish between a male and a female human and it's already difficult enough for me to get a date.
The wording says,"should men wear skirts?" Not,"should men be allowed to wear skirts?" So, I'll assume that the question was intended as worded.
I have no problem with men wearing skirts if they want to, I wouldn't try to stop them and I wouldn't ridicule them. But I have to say that generally I do not think that they should. I think that skirts are attractive on women but not on men. In fact, I think that they look a little bit ridiculous on men and would never do it myself. Everyone has their own tastes and I would never deny someone else theirs, I just don't like it personally. In my opinion, there are things that are flattering on women and there are things that are flattering on men, but there are rarely things that are flattering on both. Even the things that both men and women wear (pants for example) are usually cut differently to fit the difference in body shape, body type, and overall image. So, if a guy wore women's jeans, he would probably look equally ridiculous (to me) as I might think he'd look in a skirt. Like I said, I don't really care what people do, but I PERSONALLY do not think that it looks good to wear clothes that do not fit your body type and do not portray an image that is flattering and consistent with your gender.
If the topic said should men be allowed to wear skirts, yeah that's different talking about freedom of what you wear but this ask if men should wear skirts... Let me put it this way.
1. Should girls sag?
2. Should girls work out shirtless like guys?
3.Should girls go in mens bathrooms?
4. Should girls have penises?
5. Should girls have names like Jack or Bill?
6. Should girls be allowed into all men colleges?
7. Should girls be allowed to play NFL with men?
Ovboiusly as you can see their are many distinctions between men and women that should be kept. Also personally since I don't support gayness I also don't support this on a personal level as a result.
I'm not trying to enforce any kind of policy that men CAN'T wear skirts, I just find that if a man does wear a skirt, he is less attractive to me and most other people would categorize him as a girly boy or something of that nature. Second of all, skirts are not designed for men in the first place, if you want to wear a skirt-like piece of clothing and don't want to be labeled wrongly as a gay man, wear a kilt instead. Kilts look so much better.
The question never asked if it was legal, or moral, it asked if we think guys should wear skirts, and I very firmly believe not. Men used to wear robes, togas and kilts and skirts and all the like. But once pants evolved it was no longer necessary for men to wear skirts. Thank the heavens. Pants were specifically made for men, and left the women to wear the skirts. This is how we should keep it. Men should not wear skirts. The pants were invented for a reason.
I just wonder that which man that want to wear that skirts. If a man wear that skirts, it is has the same meaning that he shows to the world that he is a girl. And how about the men's genitals? Or something like that, that skirts will not being fit to them
I have nothing against shirts, whoever wears them. Anyone can choose to wear a shirt if they want to. But I'm not going to tell anyone (male or female) what they should be wearing. "Hey Steve, you should be wearing a shirt today." It would be like saying to a woman that they should not be wearing a shirt. People should be allowed to wear whatever they want.
If you can't figure out why men shouldn't wear woman's clothing you are already a mind numbed moron. Male and female compliment one another to make a whole, they don't need to meet in the middle. I feel sorry for children growing up in the midst of all of this foolishness.
If we are going to make clothing gender based then it make sense that we have women only wear feminine looking clothing and stay at home bring up children. BUT we are past this type of thinking lets move to the future without barrier to all . Best wisjer to all
Remembering the question is SHOULD men wear skirts. The answer is no. Seriously.
Look around on the average street of today and take note how many GIRLS are wearing skirts. Very few, I'm sure. The few that do you'll notice that it accentuates the female figure very nicely. Skirts are not flattering for a well-built man (look at a few husky Scots wearing kilts for reference).
Can I also point out that gender equality has nothing to do with men wearing skirts. I guess another argument you could make on this basis is that men and women should both compete in the 100m sprint. Yeah! Equality! Well just like the fastest humans are men, the best looking in skirts are women. Let's keep it this way, hey kiddies?
