The Lacy Truth: Military Men Wear Lingerie
Those not familiar with the concept of men who wear lingerie and other types of 'women's' clothing often make the mistake of assuming that this desire to dress in feminine attire is only present in the fringes of the population and that these writings must only be aimed at men living a life of depravity and indecency. The reality could not be farther from that stereotype.
Over the years the men who frequent these articles have revealed themselves as coming from all walks of life. The vast majority of them identify as being straight (which makes sense, as the vast majority of people in any given sample size identify as being straight,) and the vast majority of them are men you probably run into fairly often in your every day life. They're your bankers, your welders, your defenders, your fathers and your brothers.
It's a common misconception that men who wear women's clothing must be effeminate in their everyday lives. This is entirely incorrect. A surprising number of men who wear lingerie also serve in the military, or have served in the military, which makes for a succinct rebuttal for clothing conservatives who assume that if a man wears lingerie he must be otherwise entirely useless as a human being. Wrong. He may be the man defending your freedom, (people are big on defending freedom these days, in spite of the fact we seem to be losing it at a greater rate than any other time in history,) and doing it in a fetching thong.
As one man commented on the hub, 'The Panty Revolution: Why Men In Lingerie Matter' "I actually wore panties during the majority of my military obligation. Towards the end, one female soldier did see the lace band of my yellow nylon panties but I was never confronted on it."
Another man said on the hub 'Battleground Panties, The Silent War' : “I've been wearing full time for about ten years now. I served in the Military and wore panties under my uniforms (when possible obviously).”
Yet another fine gentleman with a penchant for panties revealed: As a guy and one who loves to wear panties understand I am a real man! I have hunted and fished all my life, spent 22-1/2 years in the military, most overseas in hostel environments, and don’t cross me in anger and violence for you will get hurt or worse. BUT, I do love my panties and other fine lingerie!
Solid notions of masculine and feminine dress start to dissipate when one looks beyond the outer layer of the average man's clothing. You cannot judge a book by its cover, and you cannot judge a man by his panties. But you can probably get him to stand up straight and salute in them.
