As I have said before, high fashion designers have long wanted men to wear skirts and dresses. And, yet, to date, men have been reluctant to do so. Given that I’ve noticed three celebrity men wearing skirts in public I think we may have a gender bending trend on our hands.
The question is, now, of course, given the context of the our never ending, on going culture wars, what does it all mean? Does this signify that we’re seeing a major gender shift going on? Or is this still, much like how apparently every women in high fashion is dating another woman, something that only celebrities are doing while the Poors aren’t interested?
It’s all very curious. What’s even more curious is Fox News hasn’t taken this up as the latest CTR, “cancel culture” or “woke mob” canard that they can bang into their audience’s minds. Given that the United States is experiencing a lingering gay panic in the context of liberals being “groomers” you would think that high profile men wearing skirts would be something that would play into that.
It will be interesting to see if “dudes wearing skirts” will eventually get wrapped up in the 2022 mid-term political silly season. But if it isn’t that would be great. For once, something different can happen without people freaking out.
