Boys in skirts.
« on: June 24, 2017, 08:42:56 am »
I saw this on tv a few days ago. . Apparently the hot
weather in the UK has boys wearing skirts. Seems
school rules won't let them wear short pants.

I must say my knees are too knobby to show. LOL.. But
I don't blame them for wanting to be cool.

Here is a link to the story.

Well, kilts are popular in some parts of the UK IIRC.

Exactly. ;) Men were wearing skirts (kilts) long before skirts were worn by women.

From a  heath view. A skirt or kilt is healthier for a man to wear than pants. Keeps parts of the body from overheating. And dryer.
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

In the distant past people wore robes and other wrap around
garments.  I guess pants came along for sailors, and others
who needed more protection than a wrap would give.

Apparently men in some cultures felt pants made them look
more masculine, and it has spread around the world.

Climate controls dress too. You don't see Eskimo women in
skirts. Or in any area where the temp drops below zero. If
they do you can be sure they wear leg wraps as well.

Eh, I have to say I generally think fashion between men and women make no sense to me anyways. I'd say people need to rethink fashion. A part I can understand, like only women have bras (as most men don't need it unless you have a lot of fat stored up), but stuff like skirts being banned for boys... I fail to make sense of that.
I think feminine clothes can make men look just as good as masculine clothes can make women look good, but somehow the world is treating those things like they're evil or something like that. Though men with more feminine looks are seen as "evil" more often then women with more masculine looks. And that's another thing I don't get.

I'll stop now, I don't want my brain to explode.

I probably couldn't care what a man or woman wears. It's their life. They can do what they want. But just be prepared to deal with the consequences if somebody doesn't like something that you've done. ;)

Should men wear skirts and/or any other feminine clothing? Hard to say. Depends on the body type and style of clothing worn. Some feminine stuff may look good on a man, while other stuff won't.

As I said before, men were wearing skirts long, long, long before women were. Scottish men were or still are wearing kilts, and Roman soldiers from centuries ago wore skirt type garments.

Some stores and companies have been trying to come out with more "unisex" clothing that a man and/or a woman could both wear in the last few years. How far this endeavor will take off remains to be seen.

Most clothes made for women are a bit too flimsy to
wear doing physically hard work. Women tend to like
clothing that isn't rough on the skin. That's not to say
men don't, gets back to culture.

Of course in most cases people who do physical labor
wear pants. Be they men or women. So i t's more of
leisure preference.

Unisex clothing?  You mean like bluejeans and T-shirts?  : ) Truth is there's way to much difference in a man and woman's body. Not just with the reproductive organs. The overall shape of the body. Guess they could come out with designer long jerkins and loin cloths.

If I remember right Roman soldiers wore kilt type clothing. I always
figured it was to make life easier when nature called..  :D

Being caught with ones pants down could be serious considering the
type of battles they had.

According to Ripley's, the Romans actually banished citizens for wearing pants.

Now THAT'S and interesting way to live!

Still, I can't imagine crawling under constantine wire these days would be very easy in a kilt.

Here the same thing happened, but the train ticket-inspectors did this because of the same reasons, against the mindless company rules.
