toxic masculinity

A few days ago, I came across a thread on one of the “men in skirts” forums I frequent that discussed whether it is illegal to wear skirts as a man in Italy. There were no solid conclusions which made me curious, so I did some research of my own and this is what I found.

This is a great article about how the norms of masculinity are changing to be more inclusive and less toxic and the fact that a lot of women find men like that hot.

This article is an interesting discussion about gendered clothing. It uses men in skirts as an example to illustrate the pointlessness of it.

In this post, I talk about the only negative experience I have ever had wearing a skirt as a man in public and how I coped with it.

This is an excellent post detailing the author’s slow journey into more feminine clothing. He discusses his experiences in public as well as how he worked up the courage to wear less subtly feminine outfits out in public over time.

I decided to run an experiment on myself to see how I would feel leaving all skirts, heels and other gender non-conforming clothing out of my wardrobe. The experiment was simple enough: go a week with only wearing “normal” men’s clothing.

This post explores some of the questions that arise for men who like to wear skirts and have young sons in the country.

This video is a monologue about whether regular people can queerbait. The reason I am posting it is because there is a segment that addresses straight, cis-men who dress and/or act in a more feminine way and whether they queerbait.

What does “promoting femininity in masculinity” actually mean? In this article, I discuss what it means to me and what I am trying to achieve with this blog.

In this article, The Herold from Scotland follows a couple of men who enjoy wearing skirts around Glasgow and reports not only on their motivations for wearing skirts, but also on their experiences in public and their families.
