Men Wearing Lingerie Can Change The World
The Inimitable Eugene
Many men who like to wear women's lingerie bemoan the fact that 'the world' seems to be against men wearing women's clothing. They'd like it to change, but they don't know how to make that change. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on where one stands) for these men, the answer is as simple to say as it is difficult to find the courage to act on.
How do you make a change in the world? You exist. You don't hide. Humans take what we see in the world around us as being 'normal'. The sky is blue, trees are green, and that is the way we think it 'should be'. Imagine the terror if we were to wake up tomorrow and discover that the sky was green and the trees were blue. Of course, if the sky remained green and the trees blue for a significant length of time, then we would come to accept that as being 'normal'.
This aspect of human psychology has positive and negative results (for example, in some parts of the world it is considered 'normal' to marry off 10 year old girls to 50 year old men) but it is nevertheless a tool for changing the world.
It does mean however, that if one wants the freedom to wear lingerie as one wishes, one can not hide it. Hiding it deals a double blow for men who wear lingerie and other items of women's clothing. For one, it removes it from the sight of the world, and therefore makes the act 'abnormal', and secondly, it affirms that it is something shameful.
So many of you have shared your experiences about going out shopping for lingerie and discovering that salespeople were more than happy to help fit a man for a bra or advise him on panty choices.
One man in particular who does an
excellent job of living in the light is Eugene Wong, aka Hosiery
Advocate (@hosieryadvocate if you want to follow him on twitter.)
Eugene often takes pictures of himself out and about whilst wearing
women's stockings. Wolford stockings are a favorite of his, and I
have to say that I think he does an excellent job of blending women's
lingerie into his everyday attire almost seamlessly. (Check out some
of Eugene's looks here.)
Now you don't need to go prancing in the streets in your bra and panties, but there are no doubt little ways that you can hide your lingerie a little less. You'll be surprised at how much better you feel for it, and how much just one person can make a difference in changing perceptions around him or her. Behave as if your lingerie is a normal part of your life, and soon it just might be.
