Polls

Poll: What age group do you belong to?

As a skirt-wearing man in my mid-30s, I don’t know how many times I have heard the comment: “Men wearing skirts is something only the young generations do.” So, let’s find out just which age groups wear skirts.

Poll: What sort of area do you live in?

Today’s poll asks about the area you live in. This is an interesting question because some men may feel differently about going out in public in gender-non-conforming clothing based on their surroundings.

Poll: Would you be interested in a Discord channel for beskirted men?

Today’s poll asks if you would be interested in a Discord channel for beskirted men.

Today’s poll is a little last-minute because I was walking around the old city center of Regensburg, Germany about an hour ago and saw an older gentleman out for a stroll in a skirt.

Poll: Do you have any skirt-related New Year’s resolutions?

Since many people make New Year’s resolutions, our first poll of the new year asks whether you have made any skirt-related New Year’s resolutions.

Poll: Did you get any skirts or other gender non-conforming clothes for Christmas?

With Christmas only a day ago in the United States and two days ago in Germany, it seems like the right time to ask about whether you got any skirts or other gender non-conforming clothes for Christmas.

Poll: Are you going to wear a skirt for Christmas?

Christmas is the time of year when a lot of people see extended family and may not be comfortable wearing skirts around certain family members. As such, today’s poll asks whether you are planning on wearing a skirt or other gender non-conforming clothes for Christmas.

Several of you contacted me with a link to this article all the way back in January, so I knew I had to read it and post about it, but it’s only being published today because I had a long list of other links that were already scheduled to be published.

Japan’s gender-bending history

While this doesn’t specifically have anything to do with men in skirts, it does relate in that it shows how gender norms are just social constructs that can be entirely different in other cultures.
