Ultimately who chooses what we as society wear?

Who makes the rules of gender stereotypes?

We do

As gay rights and queer, bi sexual, transgender etc. has become the norm within society people also follow their trends and styles…

why is it socially acceptable for woman to wear mens style clothing but looked down upon if men wear women’s clothing?

Should men wear skirts and dresses?

Yes they should and a lot of guys are now. We should wear what ever we feel is most fit our style and the person we want to portray.

Madona once said

“Girls can wear jeans
And cut their hair short
Wear shirts and boots
‘Cause it’s OK to be a boy
But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading
‘Cause you think that being a girl is degrading
But secretly you’d love to know what it’s like
Wouldn’t you
What it feels like for a girl”

More designers are showing clothes on the runway that are androgynous or with similar or the same looks for men and women.

Celebraties are also joining in on the new trend

and its not just Jaden….

But other influential male celebrities have continued to frock on. Diddy, Jared Leto, Vin Diesel, Omar Epps and many more have been snapped recently in man-skirts styled with ruched trousers underneath, or boxer boots or chunky high-tops. Many others have also swapped trousers, on occasion, for the less controversial Scottish kilt.
