Men, Skirts and Human Rights
Are you man enough to be a girl?
We all know how men and boys often like to test their courage. Strange how you guys are perfectly willing to put yourselves in physical danger but when it comes to wearing a dress…OH GOD NO!!!!
Seriously, I just don’t understand what’s the big deal. OK so you don’t like wearing girls’ clothes (of course you have to try it before you know that). Fair enough but why be AFRAID of them?
Its more serious than that.
In some countries men can be put in prison, beaten or even executed (!!!!!!!) just for dressing “like a woman”.
There was an article that described how a group of men were arrested in Saudi Arabia for wearing women’s clothing. OK, so we know Saudi Arabia is a bad place with messed up laws but then I came across another article (the link is lost I'm afraid) which describes how a man was arrested and convicted for dressing like a woman in Dubai. In DUBAI? Wait a minute. Wasn’t Dubai supposed to be much more liberal and tolerant? I thought so until I saw this article. Actually, I’ve always wanted to go there with my love but now I’ve decided that I’ll never go there until they get rid of those stupid laws.
Question to all messed up nations:
What is so bad about human rights?
Ok, now I realize that these regimes are terrified of people undermining their authority but what on earth could wearing clothes do to threaten, well, anyone or anything?
Not just men.
Those countries above are even worse towards women but here in the west, we enjoy the freedom to wear pretty much anything without getting into trouble. We take that for granted and should. BUT, girls just imagine being forbidden to wear trousers or getting fired for it or assaulted. It feels like remembering something from the history books but for men it’s the present reality – even in the so liberal western nations.
A call to arms
I think the only way for men to emancipate themselves is to do it all together. Its just not enough if a few activists do a demonstration or protest here and there once a year. You need EVERYONE to take part – especially those who have influence like celebrities, managers and politicians. I bet, if just a few celebrities did it for a while, that would get the ball rolling. Please, someone start. If you're famous you can afford to take those kind of risks.
What if nearly all men came to work one day wearing a skirt? OK, it would be strange at first but after a while it would just become normal and everyone would accept it. So all you have to do is arrange a mass skirt wearing day (or year).
How about it?
And please check out my article on mens skirts.
An alternative to men wearing skirts is for men to just become women and then you can wear pretty much whatever you want. For more on this check out my article on the transvestite beauty contest.
There is an article about women too here titled: Womens Fashion is also Restricted
