It seems that some real life superheroes are setting a positive role model. I like this because there is no association with being soft, or being in touch with our feminine side. It is pretty hard to argue with these guys, because they have a legitimate need to hide their identities, and they are doing something that the majority of us can easily recognize as being positive. To confirm my view, please read the comments below that writing.
I highly recommend that you try dressing up as a superhero if you want to wear hosiery with your costume.
