Normalize boys/men wearing dresses and skirts! Normalize women wearing suits! We should be able to express ourselves however we want, including the way we dress. Change starts now! Being different is amazing. Wouldn't it be a boring world if everyone wore the same thing?

Hi there,

Welcome to World Pulse:-) I agree that people should be able to express themselves freely, especially if it isn't harmful, or offensive, to others. And, yes, it would be boring if everyone was the same.

I'm looking forward to seeing more posts from you and learning more about you, what you're passionate about, and what your goals are.

Welcome to World Pulse Steph. Yes clothing has no gender. I always muse about back when everyone wore tunics, and even then people were more confident and settled into who they were, and not looking to others so much to validate their gender or person-hood.
I think the more we look to external factors, such as clothes for instance, to tell us who we are, the more we forget of get confused about our identities.
And yes, I agree, everyone wears black in my city in winter...preeety boring, and gloomy too:/

Hi Steph,
Welcome to the World Pulse Sisterhood and congratulations on your first post.

Thank you for sharing. Of course, variety is spice. It would be boring if we all wore the same thing. In my culture, our men actually wore skirts on special occasions which looked 'odd' to others outside the community.

"Being different is amazing." :)

Love and hugs,

Hello, StephCourtr,

Welcome to World Pulse! For sure. It's interesting that priests, monks, and other religious leaders are actually wearing dress-like garments. How did the fashion industry dictate what to wear today?

Yes, it's great to be different. Look at nature, the variety of flora and fauna is captivating. Please write more stories!
