@ 36 so you want masculinity to die. Do you feel the same way about femininity? When will the unisex grey coveralls be issued?

Piece of advice, y'all: when you respond to someone's reasoned, calmly offered opinion with hysterical invective, it just makes you look bad...like you aren't as confident in your views as you appear. It seems I have hit a nerve. You doth protest too much.

@33 Yes they are ad-hominem attacks because your person is worthy of being attacked.

@33: "The reason I am reacting to this seemingly-trivial photo essay is because it is just one example of the ways masculinity is under attack"

Yes, it's going through its death throes. I'm glad it hurts your fee-fees and makes you confused. Perhaps one day you'll understand.

Interesting how the responses to me have consisted almost entirely of ad-hominem attacks.

The reason I am reacting to this seemingly-trivial photo essay is because it is just one example of the ways masculinity is under attack. Women today have tons of ways to feel great about being women (grrl power, the belief that every time they succeed at something they are bringing barriers down, etc.)

But in a country where 7-year-old boys are suspended from school for pretending a stick is a gun, and talking to a woman in a coffee shop is considered dangerous harassment, men don't have the same support.

What is the point of this photo essay anyway? Men and women wear different clothes?

Part of dignity is having enough respect for yourself that you don't let other people clown you or make you look ridiculous. My answer would have been, "Sorry, that's not for me." THAT is feeling comfortable in your own skin.

@25: "When in doubt, ask yourself, what would Humphrey Bogart do?"

Not give a fuck about your opinion, for one. If being a "real man" is being comfortable in one's own skin, I'd say it's being performed more than successfully.

@28: "I have a problem with doing it because you think it makes you look like a sensitive new-age guy"

If you're so set on your strict gender binaries if you can't stand any lighthearted variance, the issue is you. Not the "SNAG" or whatever slurs you're tossing around.

You're obsessing about what other people think about you to the point where you're telling others what they're allowed to do in public. Get help, dude. You care far too much and it's bleeding into you being literally intolerant about the fun of others.

@28 - it's a fucking photo essay. you think all models in all pictures dress that way on the regular just because they wore the clothes in a photo? you must be some kind of moron. do you get confused at halloween when you see everyone in costumes?

THERE'S SO MANY ZOMBIES OUT, GUYS. DON'T GO OUTSIDE.

I should add, I have no problem with a man dressing like a woman because he likes dressing like a woman. I have a problem with doing it because you think it makes you look like a sensitive new-age guy. Just like a girl shouldn't show her boobs to get people to like her. Know who you are, is what I'm saying.

@25: This is not shameful, and it is not "making a spectacle".

It's charming, and you're a classless insecure douche.

@20, @23: A woman shouldn't lift her shirt just because somebody yells "show us your tits!" Likewise, don't do something like this just because someone asks. If you are going to make a spectacle of yourself, do it for your own reasons. Don't do it just because you think it makes you look like a cool liberated guy. It's like the old saying, if you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

When in doubt, ask yourself, what would Humphrey Bogart do?

@5 How awkward for you that your identity and manhood lies in the seat of your pants and not in the heart of your actions.

You should put credit into the body of your post, instead of leaving it in the comments. Just saying.

shoes seem to be the hardest for the guys - you can wear too-big shoes for a photo and it generally looks funny, but there's not much you can do to fit into shoes that are way too small. Kudos to the last guy for not only wearing the heels but working them!

@9, Nordstrom Rack can help you sometimes. Also, there used to be a cross-dressing shop up on Broadway that had lots of pumps and heels in jumbo man sizes.

Too bad I wear a men's 13 shoe. It's hard to find that size in a pump, let alone a heel. Otherwise, my wife and I switch clothes for fun too.

The girls frequently look better; the guys without exception look worse. But then that statement is generally true in every context.

"This belt"-"These heels" is impressive in the attractive making powers of that purple dress and the funckability-sucking powers of that dark ensemble.
