general non-furry discussion / Re: Boys in skirts.
« Last post by Kobuk on Today at 03:11:19 pm »
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.

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.

Trump Day 156
Our man Trumps blame game is causing a lot of unrest in the country.
There are a lot of people who feel threatened by foreigners, or anyone
who is or looks different. These people look up to Trump partly because
he says things they want to believe. I doubt if Trump stops his blame
game because he would loose a lot of support from those who voted for
him. Trump may not know how to run a country, but he does know how
to manipulate people.

I fear minorities, women, LGBT, and the hadicapped are going to have
it tough for a few years. I just hope it doesn't lead to violence accross
the country.  Though already some people are causing harm to those
Trump is laying blame on.

A lot of people are closet racists, biggots, and all around haters. Some
use the excuse they are protecting family and jobs. Trouble is its mostly
due to ignorance of the facts. Trumps supporters watch the far right on
tv, and listen to the same on talk radio. They should take the time to
listen to a more balanced reporting before deciding who is right and
wrong. Or who is costing jobs, making jobs. If they don't they are going
to be loosers in the end. We could all loose in the end as well.

I heard something that suprised me a bit. Turns out in France people have
a right to health care at practically no cost. Working people pay little in
income tax.  One might think how could that work? Turns out they do tax
the very rich. People with incomes of over a half million a year pay enough
in taxes to run the country.  Our GOP friends would claim this would
ruin the economy, but France has a strong economy. I am sure people pay
more for some things, but if a country like France can make it work there
is no reason we can't. It's corporate greed that stands in the way..

Those in the GOP claims people in countrys with socialized medicine have
to get in line to get health care. This is true in some cases, but usually
only for care that can wait, More people die due to lack of care in the USA
than they do in countrys with socialized medicine. This is something the
GOP doesn't want to talk about.

The GOP wants to keep health care in the market place to control prices.
This only works if you insure healthy people. The market place will not
work for people with exsisting health problems. The only realistic way
to handle health care is to have everyone pay for health care via the
government  Otherwise many won't be able to afford to get health care
at all. Premiums for hi risk people will be more than their total income.
The GOP say they will help pay this, but not untill they are are destitute
if at all.

The GOP has played politics with the ACA since Obama first introduced it.
They should be a shamed as this plan was a GOP plan to begin with.
Now they want to get rid of it co they can cut taxes for the very rich.
Trump would  get a 7 million dollar cut in his taxes alone.

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.

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.

If you eat an entire cake without cutting it, you technically only had one piece. ;)

The increase of hatred, racism, and bigotry in this country, especially during the last 12 months due to the Presidential campaigns, debates, and election. And it just seems to get worse as the weeks and months drag on.  :( Lincoln was right: "A house divided against itself cannot stand."  Republicans against Democrats. Liberals vs. Conservatives. Americans against........Americans.  :o I hope this country doesn't erupt into another civil war........or worse.

I'm not too keen on a cashless society.  :P Besides the negative things that Rocket posted, my biggest gripe is when I'm at a store and in the checkout line. If a person is in front of me and is having trouble paying for their purchases with a credit or debit card, or the register/computer systems break down, etc., then I, as well as others, have to stand there waiting and waiting and waiting till the issue gets resolved. In the time it takes for their issue to get resolved, I could already have my dollar bills out of my wallet and pay for my purchase faster and be out the door long before the other person with the problems got finished.
