Life, Society, Men in Skirts & More - Front Page
These are my views, factual, informative and to me balanced and fair.
This site is primarily about men in skirts but does cover other aspects of gender issues even those not directly affected by me.
I'll talk about related discrimination and inequalities in this respect as too in the main area of this site about men in skirts compared to womens demands with regards clothing choice in this modern era.
With gender issues I'm Egalitarian - "believe in the principle that people are equal and deserve equal rights/opportunities".

This site covers:
1) My thoughts via my blogs page - life, society...
2) A separate section of interesting articles under the topic "I'm an Individual, Not Part of the Crowd"
3) A big section where it discusses at length men in skirts and what is the harm. No harm and no difference to the women in trousers and other male style clothing.
4) A section by a third party site on linking to two articles I like about "The Man Box".
5) A Section called Men. Links to articles I find interesting about men in general.
6) A Section providing links to third party blog sites - for men in skirts and My blogspot - Some activities of TheSkirtedMan.
7) A section listing articles I have heard on BBC Radio 4 Thought for the Day which I like.
A few interesting quotes:
"There's no sin like being a woman. When a man dresses as a woman, the audience laughs. When a woman dresses like a man, no body laughs. They just thought she looked wonderful."
Quentin Crisp 1908 - 1999
As Archbishop Desmund Tutu said "I am because you are" applying the philosophy of Ubuntu.
"...taboos can change swiftly..." and "...like societies of everywhere, we mock the taboos of others yet fail to see the absurdity of our own..."
18th July, 2014 Anne Atkins Thought for the Day - BBC Radio 4.
"...you don't need human rights until you need them. Everybody loves their own human rights; it's just other people's that are problematic."

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind"
Bernard M Baruch: 1870 - 1965
"It is better to be hated for what you are than be loved for what you are not"
Andre Gide: 1869 - 1951
"Evolution has yet to transend that simple barrier. We can care deeply, selflessly about those we know but that empathy rarely extends beyond our line of sight"
From the film Interstella 2015
I am a supporter of inequalities and discrimination of either gender. I tend to support mens issues more due to socities & media obsession with talking about womens yet ignore mens. I support campigners who try to get legitimate mens issues on the main equality discussion table even if they do not directly affect me. I do not support either men or women who are sexist in behaviour & language. I support true gender equality which is only achieved by inclusion of all and for all.
Apart from, and for other similar men, our freedom of choice of clothing being frowned upon by society, yet not for women, and being a man, therefore labelled with the negative generalisation and demeaning of men within society, I am not subject to the many other serious inequalities that some men do suffer. Inequalities that are ignored and discounted in this modern era, just like women claim. Even so, unlike some, I do listen to, note many, and understand inequalities and double standards within society that both genders have and really shouldn't but then we are dealing with humans here! Take clothing choice as one simple example.
I may not spend my time in pubs. I may only have a very brief interest in sport. I may not be interested in cars but I certainly have an interest in events, science, history, interesting facts and capable of any aspects of any work around the house including professional services except plastering. My life and interests are active and eclectic from walking, talks, theatre, concerts in many formats and styles and the prospect of learning more knowledge. I have a fascination of learning about things I do not know. I have my views just like you and afford mutual respect! If I sit around looking for activity then I have a problem. This site and my blogspot will give you an idea about me. I'm a man in a skirt, the same as any woman in trousers. I'm an individual, true to myself.
