A Hot New Fashion Trend Has Men Dressing In Skirts, Dresses And 8 Inch Heels

How would you feel if a man walked into a business meeting wearing a skirt and 8 inch heels?  20 years ago that would have been absolutely unthinkable, but if one American designer has his way that may soon become the norm.  When I saw photos on Facebook of Thom Browne’s latest line for men, I have to admit that I was floored.  If you have not seen what I am talking about yet, you can do so here and here.  Personally, I believe that men should dress like men and women should dress like women, but much of society is moving in the exact opposite direction.

 

In recent years we have been hearing a lot about “gender fluidity”, and this is yet another example of that phenomenon.  The distinctions between men and women are being blurred, and there are many that would like to eliminate them altogether.

Given enough time, could we eventually get to the point where it is just as acceptable for men to wear skirts and heels as it is for women?  Apparently Thom Browne wants us to have these kinds of conversations

Gender fluidity in style is no longer a thing for only women, but men too. Thom Browne, an American designer seems to think men should embrace the trend too and rock a few pieces ‘borrowed from the girls’. His spring summer collection presented at the ongoing Men’s fashion week had a slew of dress shirts, tunics, maxi dresses and skirts all worn with pointy toe heels.

Who says what a man should and shouldn’t wear? The collection seems to drive a conversation many of us never want to have. And, if a woman can wear a pantsuit, why can’t a man wear a skirt suit? Probably, this is what the designer wanted to us to talk about.

For Browne, he figures that since we all wore similar clothing as babies that we should be able to do the same thing once we reach adulthood.  The following quote from Browne comes from Vogue

“I like the idea that when you are a baby you wear pretty much the same clothing as your brothers and sisters. And I think that culture dictates which way and what kind of clothing you wear—but it is nice that you can pretty much do whatever you want.”

Doing whatever is right in our own eyes may make a lot of sense for Browne, but a society without gender would be complete chaos.  God created both men and women for a reason, and trying to eradicate masculinity and femininity would be a tragic mistake.

In particular, there seems to be a tremendous effort in our society today to feminize men.  By now just about everyone has heard about the “metrosexual” trend, and more recently there has been a push to make “rompers for men” fashionable…

For too many years, men have suffered from a lack of options in the fashion realm. So, four Chicago-based business school buds sought to rectify this injustice by introducing to the world (for better or for worse) the male romper — er the RompHim.

“Turn heads and break hearts when you take your RompHim for a spin,” reads the product description. “Is it a romper specifically designed for men? Sure, but it’s also so much more.”

When I see men dressed in rompers, part of me wants to laugh, but another part of me wonders where all of this is heading.

Instead of “male” and “female”, are we ultimately headed for a “genderless” era where most people will fall on a “spectrum” somewhere between the two genders?  Even now, some major stars in the entertainment industry are fully embracing the “genderless” label.  For example, just consider what Miley Cyrus had to say during one recent interview…

“I think I’m weird because that I feel very genderless; I feel ageless; I feel like I’m just a spirit soul, not even divided by human being, or I treat the animals the same or, hopefully, treat the planet with as much respect as possible,” Cyrus  said during an interview on Lorraine, a U.K. morning show.

“I feel very much like there’s no ‘us’ and ‘them’. There’s no ‘me’ and ‘you’. I feel like I’m kind of just — I want to be everything, and I want to be also kind of nothing. I just want to be able to be myself,” she continued.

That is just weird.

But tens of millions of young people around the globe absolutely adore Miley Cyrus and look up to her as a role model.

So as Miley Cyrus embraces a “genderless identity”, it is inevitable that large numbers of other young people will follow in her footsteps.

This is yet another example that shows that we need to be very careful about what we feed into our minds.  The average American consumes approximately five hours of television “programming” a day, and it is inevitable that all of that “programming” is going to have a dramatic impact on how we all see the world.

After thousands upon thousands of hours of “programming”, many of us may be ready to accept just about anything – and that includes men dressing in skirts and heels.

 
  • Wow…modern Sodom.

    No way I could suppress my laughter if I saw someone wearing such clothing… the folly!

  • This world is slipping, sister.

    It’s transgenderism today…and it’ll be transhumanism tomorrow.

    I think Satan is setting up the human mind to the point where the “mark of the beast” will be akin to eating the fruit from the tree in the Garden — it’ll be that irresistible, in its temptation.

    Ye shall be like gods. Look at us, and upon all our [fallen] glory. This can be yours, too — with a simple modification device we’ll “freely” give you…

    Just yesterday my husband and I were shopping at Target and were baffled to find that in the men’s department were t-shirts with pictures of the Golden Girls and Disney Princesses on them. We are in our mid thirties and remember when if guys wore something like that they would be ridiculed.

    As you, I also see a great falling away as the world becomes enamored with treacherous Chrislam that leads to peril. Now, 2 Thessalonians 2:11 ff is in effect:

    And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

    …Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts…

    So, my brother, we have the warning and the promise–as the last days are unfolding.

  • You know…there seems to be a tie-in with Rome’s version of Mary and Islam’s Isis.

    Like, two sides of the same coin.

  • Unsure if I would be rolling around uncontrollably on the floor in laughter OR writhing on the floor, sobbing inconsolably in agony….. Jury’s out. Heaven help us.

  • Jeffrey

    My only words would be “No, just no” while pointing to the door and laughing uproarously. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7bd48601e25a041b9269e21f4f0bac82dbfaa9fdb07194abdf196d85e76aa49d.jpg

  • this story is way too funny

    No real man would go out in public looking like a cross dressing jackass unless they where a true jackass ….

    Stop femimizing men with GMO SOY!!!! Yes, if a masculine man wants to wear a skirt, its his body and he is free to do what he wants with it. However, quit playing with his mind and feeding him FEMALE hormones through the food supply chain. As much as I agree that people have the right to do with their bodies as they see fit AND if they wish to feed themselves dog kidneys or whatever Big Food decides to cross with this time, great; however for the men out there who want to be men – stay away from GMO food!

  • Ridiculed? In my day (I’m now 74) they would have been rudely awakened by a rap on the side of the head. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ceb42bb5c07263ae1cbd46335e4e2b16fd25660fa6b1600ee93310c041c85c64.gif

    That’s a very good observation, Adam. (Somehow I missed your comment before.)
    Yes, I can see where the Roman church could mesh their worship of a woman with Isalm’s as they have already done with their god.

  • D.M.S.

    If it catches on we’ll see it in our smaller cities in a few years.
    The liberal entertainment world, will be the ones to make it popular.

    LMAO! WOW….that’s a new level of sick! My apologies to the Scots, of course, but they have an excuse to dress in kilts for heritage reasons. Transcending and crossing genders is insane. It really is a psychological disability and should be treated as one. People are not born that way. There is no biology to it…there’s biochemistry to it—inasmuch as those types of people have an imbalance that can and could be properly re-balanced. It is unnatural not to want to procreate. It’s anti-Creation. It lends to one’s own destruction. I don’t particularly like Richard Dawkins, but he does have a point with the ‘selfish gene’ concept. Our genes are made, chemically aligned, such that they want to replicate and pass on to future generations. Not skip-cross over genders….that’s an anomaly. If the skirts on men are intended to bring about laughter, I think it’s ok for the comedic value, but it’s demeaning to the male gender to dress in ladies clothes otherwise. I’m offended by it as a female!! It just looks ridiculous on anyone other than Mel Brooks in Braveheart. And even on him it was just silly, but it’s a cultural thing, not a mental disorder. (And yes, I am of sound mind and very qualified to say all this…I enjoy a good joke, but jeez….LOL)

    I’m getting that song from the Mel Brook’s movie, Men In Tights, running through my head…”We’re Men…We’re men in Tiiiii-ights…we run around the forest looking for fights!” roflmao “Watch what you say or else WE’LL PUT OUT YOUR LIGHTS!!!”

  • Insensitivity

    I agree with your larger point somewhat. But why can’t the kilt or skirt let’s say also be a cultural thing outside of Scotland?
