Our Country Has Our Sexes Backwards

Think About It

Our Country Has Our Sexes Backwards. The social stereotypical roles imposed upon us by society are antiquated and need to change. I am here to be that voice of change. Not that long ago, Pink used to be a boys color. What prompted this to change? Why did it become a girls color? Pink for boys almost started making a comeback in the 80's. For a brief time in the 80's it was acceptable to wear a pink oxford (with the collar turned up). A guy in a pink oxford with khaki's does tend to be a little flowery now a days. (Not that there is anything wrong with that).That was not for me though, and pink is not what I am here to change. I associate pink with the ladies. I do have a pink necktie, but that is a powerful statement about a man who is secure in his masculinity. So for the upper echelon, you gotta be a lot of man to flaunt a pink tie, and that is intimidating to men not secure enough to pull it off. But a pink tie is a power tie, to be worn with a power suit for the man exuding in masculinity. . You can smell the testosterone. Move over boys, the Alpha male is here. Again I digress. Excepting that, I see pink as being all about the ladies. Just listen to Steven Tyler tell it like it is. Today we are here to talk about other things.

Oh Yeah! Pink is All About the Ladies.

Female Reproductive Anatomy

Male Anterior Anatomy

What are we really talking about?

Like I said, we are here to discuss antiquated social gender roles in America. All one has to do is look at human anatomy, and apply common sense.

Clothing. What is with that? Guys wear jeans, Ladies wear skirts. Now I can understand the attraction of Ladies in skirts. Easy access right? Not that long ago, women were shuned for wearing pants. But what of functionality. For the ladies I think they could do with a bit of protection. They used to have to ride sidesaddle.

Now look at the male anatomy. Something is hanging there. They say for a man to be fertile enough to produce a good healthy sperm count, he must regulate the temperature of his, uh, dangly bits. The males body will attempt to regulate the heat of his gonads. When it is too cold, they shrivel up and go up into the body. When it is hot, they dangle low to allow excess heat to transfer off. Now what good is that going to do all bunched up in some thick denim? It is clear to me, that man was built to wear a skirt. Let it hang and catch a breeze on those 97* summer days. . What's the matter poncey boy, think skirts aren't manly enough for you?

Now tell me these guys in their skirts aren't Manly Men

Men in Skirts

And you can bet that he wears his kilt in the traditional fassion.  Au Natural.
And you can bet that he wears his kilt in the traditional fassion. Au Natural.

I'm Bringin Sexy Back

That is why we have the kilt. Imagine you have been doing manly work all day and you go out for a beer to unwind. You actually have several beers. Before you know it, nature calls. No worries, raise your kilt and mark your territory, and the nicest part? No zipper to get your naughty bits caught in. So this summer grab a beer and let the breeze cool you off on those hot and sweaty days. You are a man and are not afraid to wear a skirt.

Wear those man skirts boys! Just make sure they fit right. Nothing worse than a man in a skirt that doesn't fit properly. I never did get why guys had to wear pants.

I think men should wear skirts what the heck why not? I believe many of them are programmed, if I were to ask my husband to wear a skirt he would think I am nuts, or a closet freak. lololo love the hub and love the video, I am a big Steven Tyler fan. :)

In many parts of India, men do wear something like a longish skirt...the lungi, the mundu...but as Western influence becomes more prevalent, it is more of tight and tighter jeans.

I so do love a man in a kilt.

Hugh Jackman in a kilt would be good - and you can make it pretty, baby, feminine pink - he'll still look hot!! :D

Shalini- He is a manly man and if he could get away with a pink one, I should do allright in a black camo kilt. Maybe. LOL

It really doesn't matter what one wears, comfort should come first regardless of gender. I mean, whatever floats your boat, right? Unless you give weight to what other people would say. I'm thinking, would a pink skirt go beyond overkill?! Thanks for sharing PM :D


C. C. Riter 7 years ago

Dang, muh kilt won't fit me no more. now I'm a swinger in muh bibs. Must lose weight.

Cris A- It all depends on how secure you are or how much you care about other's opinions. I say if it floats your boat.....

CC- are you a swinger or is you a' swinging?

You know some guys looked better in kilt or dresses than women. Take this for example...

mayhmong- OMG! As Austin Powers would say, "that's no woman, that's a man baby. Yeaaaaah"

These are not the Manly Men that I speak of, but if that is the way that they like it, "What ever blows your skirt up" LOL.

Okay, you make some good points, Paper Moon. But as a girl who really likes a guy's butt in nice fitting pair of jeans, I'm not ready to start checking out the skirts.

But then that wasn't the point, was it? You're saying it's more about comfort and practicality. I still think it's about the looks. But I don't have anything dangling to get caught in a zipper, either.


Paper Moon profile image

Paper Moon 7 years ago from In the clouds Author

Laughing Mom- If the skirt blows up you could get a better look. LOL. Besides, guys are not as used to them as women are, you could always drop something and ask them to pick it up. ;)

Pros and cons, Paper Moon. But the afformentioned "problem" would be much worse in spandex biking shorts or even worse, a speedo. YIPES! So I'd say your options are still open.

When we were checking out of a northern England hotel a couple of years ago, we had a chance to see a large group of Scottish men in full kilts leaving to go to a Scottish wedding. I have to admit, these guys looked awesomely hot in them! Crisp white shirts, the plaid kilt....nice legs.....yeah...I could dig it. LOL

OK, so I don't even own bicycle shorts. I might wear them, but would refuse to get off my bike if I did. I mean could I walk into a store or run around in the park with them? No way. :O

I would with my kilt (if it still fit damn it)

Actually growing up in the eighties and nineties I had the problem of girls and adult women alike marveling over how I always wore skirts.  For some reason once it became acceptable to wear pants all of a sudden other women wanted to impose their preferences on those who did not fall in line.

I wear pants from time to time, but I have always just been more comfortable in a skirt.  Shopping for jeans is a nightmare because for me they are always too loose in one area and too tight in another, so over the years I have gravitated towards skirts.  I can do most of the things other women can do in pants, but even my own family used to have panic attacks about me wearing skirts so much.  Actually I think I became more stubborn about it because people insisted I should not, which usually solidifies a person's opinions on a subject.  Oh well, I think people should wear what they like and other women should not tell other women what to wear, unless they are on a show hosted by that name.

Oh by the way in the South Pacific and Fiji men wear skirts too. The police guards in Fiji actually have a skirted uniform, which is very masculine!

You go girl. Wear what you want. I didn't know about Fiji police uniforms. If guys get manly skirts in Fiji, that sounds like one more reason to go there.
