Another long answer from me, feel free to stop reading, now.
Wear one for a day, or just around your house. Wearing skirts is like your walking in wet swim trunks.
If you like it, try wearing it in public and you may get nasty comments but imagine if you were expected to wear it, pressured to wear it and still knew that at least once every few times you wore it,you'd get the same attention.
One of the things most girls are taught from an early age is : "No jungle gym on skirt days" = constant awareness of exposure in skirts. So, many parents put us in leggings with skirts/ dresses.So, why not just wear pants?
This is not every woman's point of view but it is many and you may find it irrational but it is not, it is my reality. It may be irrational for a male to feel this way because it would be against his experience.
For me, there are more reasons not to wear a skirt/dress. I am trying to explain why.
1st: For every male who loves women in dresses/skirts, there will be a wo/man saying " Of course she got r*ped. Look at what she was wearing." There is a lot of baggage tied up in the female wardrobe, especially for those who expect us to wear skirts/dresses. By 'baggage' I mean associations,assumptions,opinions,sexuality,eroticism,romanticism.
As a male reader not being with me every moment of my Life you may find this unbelievable but EVERY time I wear a skirt/dress, I get unwanted attention. NOT complimentary ;not welcome;not "I-secretly-like-it-I'm-just-being -a-tease" or "I'm just-repressed "attention; No - it is UNWANTED attention.
In my head, my wearing a dress is like a guy walking around his home in underpants,m. It's comfy and easy. To males, it's an invitation and an assumption that I am there for them to enjoy, not a human being who just wants to go about her day.I DO NOT mean ALL men but there will be at least one man for every 5 I pass who will make it a into a big deal and assume I want flirtations.
It's embarrassing when hems fly up, which they always do, it is unwanted and disgusting when the strange men leer when that happens. It is upsetting when some men (NOT all) make no effort to hide their eyes searching my body as fabric presses against it in the breeze.
The frustration of sweaty thighs, sometimes, twisted fabric sometimes, the ends flying up sometimes and the male gaze every time is more reasons not to wear a dress/skirt than the one reasons : easy on.
Shorts/pants instead of Dresses/skirts:
Of course we feel more exposed in a skirt, long or short than in shorts. No matter the material, in the 'right' ( or wrong) light they are transparent, they hang over our every curve outlining our behinds more than tailored bottoms like shorts. Shorts, however thin, have their own structure which covers up our bodies' actual shapes.Skirts and dress cling to us. Plus, even if there is no breeze, just movement forward causes them to cling to us in way that shows all to closely how we look in nothing at all.Slips barely hide much.1
