You Have GOT To Be Shitting Me!

04 May

It’s a warm, quiet night; flashes of lightning flare across the sky and the late evening breezes finally decided to show up.. and then I see this:  http://living.msn.com/style-beauty/simply-chic-blog-post/?post=621d0363-3e25-4ecc-bfc0-107f09b5e324.

What you will find, if you click this link, is a new fashion “thing:”  Dresses and gowns… for men.  Now, it’s one thing for Scottish clansmen to wear kilts – which isn’t a dress or a skirt but signifies their clan and the jokes about what might be under the Tartan abound.

It’s another thing for men to dress up in women’s clothing, mostly known as a sexual fetish or maybe some latent regret about being born a man… and maybe – just fucking maybe – the fashion world figures that men are rugged enough to wear dresses and gowns and it not have anything to do with sex or some fetish?

What is hilarious – at least to me – is the look on the male models’ face as they’re walking the runway, like they’re saying, “They don’t pay me enough for this shit…”

I remember when ‘mantyhose’ came onto the scene and the uproar that popped up when some pro football players confessed to wearing pantyhose, not because of fashion but it kept them warm under their uniforms, a big deal when playing at Lambeau Field or the old Metropolitan Stadium, where the Vikings used to play and it’s the dead of winter.

And I’m thinking, oh, fuck no; while I feel that I’m man enough to do a lot of shit, try getting me into a dress and find out what’ll happen!  What’s even funnier – and I’ll have to let y’all in on why – is that Mystery and I have been having another of our interesting discussions about sexy, how society plays it up as a standard people “must” strive to achieve and even how being sexy plays into the feminine mindset…

But men wearing dresses?  Okay, I don’t have anything against guys who want to wear a dress or even a formal gown – to each his own, right?  But, I think the fashion designers are all on crack or some other powerful hallucinogenic if they think and/or believe that dudes are going to be running out to fill their closets – well, dudes who aren’t cross-dressers, anyway.  Still, um, this ain’t sexy by any stretch of the imagination.

I know women just love for us to get in touch with our feminine sides… but ain’t this taking shit a bit too far?  Some men haven’t completely recovered from getting their asses reamed out and being labeled punk-assed bitches for carrying man-purses and, yeah, no matter what you wanna call them, it’s a purse, aight?  And, oh, yeah, note that the article says that mantyhose is making a comeback…

Just when you think you’ve heard and seen it all…

    This is one fashion statement that I am going to pass on. I like being the man and letting the women wear the skiirts and dresses
