If you want to watch three bearded men absolutely destroy a complex dance choreography routine in high heels, this link is for you.
I don’t know about anyone else but I find men who wear heels to be incredibly attractive.
Historically heels were standard menswear as well, so why not.
LTMC: Confession: I cross-dressed last year for Halloween and I had a blast doing it. I went all-in: I wanted to look as much like a real girl as possible.
To be perfectly honest, it was liberating. Gender roles are pretty strict when it comes to appropriate dress for men and women, so it was kind of cool to be able to have a “feminine” experience in that sense. Things like learning how to wear make-up, how to select clothing to hide some of my “unflattering” contours, how to walk in heels, and so on. It was fun. And I enjoyed being able to break out of the “masculinity bubble” for a night. I even fooled a couple people, which I was pretty proud of. I’d also be lying if I didn’t like the way my eyes looked with a little bit of eye-liner.
On a slightly more serious note, I also had a lot of eye-opening experiences while shopping in women’s clothing stores and women’s sections of department stores to put my outfit together. I definitely noticed the uncomfortable stares, customers avoiding me, odd looks from staff members, and so on. It was almost like a crash course in gender policing and homophobia/transphobia. Even though I consider myself fairly progressive when it comes to acknowledging that sort of discrimination, it’s a very different thing to be aware of something in the abstract, and to experience it directly. It made me glad that I decided to do it, because it helped me more deeply appreciate what many people in the LGBT community have to cope with every day.
I guess the bottom line is that I’d totally be ok with a world where men can wear “feminine” clothing or wear make-up and nobody gave a damn (same in reverse for women, of course). The gender binary is stifling. And we’d all be happier if everybody could find it in themselves to just stop giving a damn about it.
