It’s International Men can Wear Dresses Too! day. I was going to take a photo but we had a discussion and C. said her dresses looked more like ill-fitting tunics on me and she felt uncomfortable. “What if I do something hypermasculine like wear combat boots and hold a ridiculously large handgun?” She still worried.

For me it’s about total body autonomy and subverting the perception that you can judge a person by appearances. I’m not down with a society that tacitly condones rape on the basis of what the victim is wearing, or that excuses assaults on trans* folk because of attire.
