The other day, I was walking down a busy street in Los Angeles and passed a man who was wearing a skirt, or a towel, or a kilt… no I am pretty sure it was a skirt. I cannot believe the next trend that is going to take over for spring is the skirt for men. As a woman, I love skirts. I think they show off my legs, they help keep me cool during a hot summer and they make me feel very feminine. I understand that sometimes men want to embrace their feminine side; they can get a manicure, spend an absurd amount of money on a haircut or spend a weekend watching a Sex and the City marathon. However, I think that skirts for men is taking femininity to an extreme.
There are plenty of women out there that do love a feminine man. They appreciate a man who can enjoy the same activities, and now enjoy the same clothes as well. Women can appreciate a man who has the balls to wear a skirt. That type of courage can really shine through in a man, and maybe even shine through the fabric of his skirt. While on a date, do both woman and man cross their legs?
Skirts for men are becoming so popular that they can easily be found in a mall. Which gets you thinking about what kind of man would wear a skirt. Can you see a teenage boy sporting a skirt? Can you imagine your father wearing a skirt? Can you imagine a professional football player wearing a skirt? No way. Skirts don’t seem to compliment masculine legs the way an expensive pair of slacks do. Foreigners seem to be the only men who can make a skirt look good.
I cannot imagine dating a man who wears a skirt. Dating him would make me feel like less of a woman. We could literally wear matching outfits, shoes and handbags on a date. Men wearing skirts reminds me of some of the men that I see, and are great, during Pride parades or Halloween. However, if I wanted to date a man that made me feel like I was at a Parade or Halloween party everyday I would have picked one up last Halloween.
I believe one of the top reasons men would love skirts is because it makes it easier for them to get laid, or at least get in “quicky.” If men could give up a little bit of their masculinity to up their chances of receiving a blow job in the car, they would do it in 1.3 seconds.
