Men Wearing Men's Clothing; Not Men Wearing Women's Clothing

There is such a subtle difference between what I am trying to do, and what others are doing. I could be wrong, but most men, pushing the hosiery trend, are probably trying push for the trend to wear women's clothing. For example, Daryll Duane Philips wear hosiery and lipstick. He wears hosiery with no shorts or pants. There is a video and some Facebook photos for you to see.

There are 3 different kinds of perspectives. He is trying to get society to accept men in women's clothing. I am trying to get society to accept hosiery as men's clothing. There are also people who are trying to get society to believe that men's hosiery exists. Do you see the difference?

The end. Thank you for reading!


  1. Here are the perspectives I've come across, mainly from reading on the Internet. One is the idea that all styles of clothing should be unisex. The argument is not that men should be able to wear women's clothing, but that the whole idea that certain clothing is men's clothing and other clothing is women's clothing is old-fashioned and should be scrapped.

    The other perspective I see is people who are fine in general with there being men's and women's clothing, but think that certain articles of clothing should be added to men's clothing. I've mainly come across this for legwear and for skirts, with different groups of men arguing for each. The same way that jeans, for example, are consider to be for both men and women, so would legwear and skirts be. I'd say that most men are not overly concerned with whether their legwear or skirt (or jeans) were sold as a men's product, so much as whether the fit and appearance of it is appropriate for a man. For legwear, the interest is mainly in pantyhose and opaque tights, but can also include skintight leggings.

    My personal view is the first perspective. As long as someone is dressed modestly, they should be able to wear whatever they choose, without being judged for it. I think I do understand why some people single out legwear or skirts. Those are whole categories of clothing which have not been considered appropriate for men.

  2. Hi Doug. I hope that things are going well with you. Thanks for reading the blog post and then commenting.

    I think that I see where you're coming from. The reason that I disagree with your summary is that your summary of 2 views doesn't account for a crossdresser that tries to pass himself off as a female named "Mary". Those people wouldn't be happy with today's unisex clothing. They wouldn't be happy if we made everything unisex. They try to wear clothing that is distinctly feminine.

    What do you think?

    If I had to pick one of your two groups, then I would choose group #2, and preferably with the chance to tweak it: "I am fine with male and female clothing, and I believe that most articles should be common to all, but only certain styles of those garments should be available to each sex.". Both men and women wear pants, but men tend to wear masculine pants, etc.

    What are your thoughts on that?

  3. Women can wear men's clothing while feeling comfortable and still look feminine. I am having a hard time figuring out men wearing women's clothing. Majority of the people will think they're gay and not merely cross-dressers.

  4. I think that only western women have that luxury. I think that western women can wear men's clothing for the same reason that western women can dance together. I don't understand it, but it is just the way that it is.

  5. as long as men promote a negitive image towards women like for sexual gratification reasons and such , where others wear just because they love wearing them as articles of clothing for the support, the warmth, the feel and the way it makes their legs look women will always look upon it in a negitive way
