I really like those 25 men who dare to wear women’s clothing in a society that believes it is shameful for men to wear women’s clothing as it drags men down to women’s level.
Men wear skirts in many parts of Asia. They wear skirts in Scotland too. So, wearing skirts is not something extra ordinary.
Men put themselves in women’s shoes to show solidarity with women. Walking several miles while wearing women’s high heels is not that easy, but it is not easy for women either.
People are saying that men in women’s clothes will not bring women’s equality. As if men in men’s clothes will bring women’s equality! We know very well what brings equality. If we really want to have an equal society, we will make a sincere effort to bring it. In the meantime men can start wearing women’s clothes. Women are not ashamed of wearing men’s clothes! Why not unisex clothing from now on? Baby clothes are unisex. Pre-pubertal boys and girls can have unisex clothes too. Adult male and female bodies have different shapes, their clothes can have different shapes too. Our T-shirts are gender neutral. Saree can be. Look at the man in saree, he looks gorgeous!
Women wear bangles. It would be nice if men wear bangles too. Then at least the sentence like ‘hatho mein chudiyan pehen lo’ or ‘go wear bangles’ will not be considered so extremely shameful for men! It is common in the subcontinent’s sexist society to ask men to wear bangles if men are stupid. ‘Wear bangles’- this two little words are strong enough to kill a man’s pride. Wear bangles! You are a man without balls! You are scared of everything! You are unable to do anything! You are just like a woman!
I wear women’s sarees, skirts, bangles, high heels, I wear men’s shirts, pants, ties, suits, jackets! Heterosexual men should have the same freedom as heterosexual women have.
