Everyone, please welcome Oliver Pearl, author of The Last Gentle Dentist. He is guest posting here today, and I am most glad he did. There’s also a giveaway (scroll to bottom for details). Enjoy!
Why is it I can wear pants but he can’t borrow my skirt? – A bit of chitchat on odd sexism.
He absolutely can. And he soon will. I was at the Burning Man earlier this month and I lost count of men parading in kilts, togas, skirts and such. To overcompensate their natural and well hidden confusion those men carried themselves with extra pride and panache. They looked like warriors. I, myself, had no choice but to wrap myself into one just to see what the fuss is all about. Skirts are comfortable, pragmatic and provide an infinite number of opportunities to show good legs and clean underwear. I cautiously foresee a spill of man skirts to grow into an avalanche in not so distant future.
Women found themselves to be viewed as sexually liberated and audacious not so long ago when they started wearing pants. It’s high time for men who are men enough to wear skirts to finally charge our streets with their unconcealed masculinity.

“The narrator finds himself a wanted man and begins his odyssey through Europe and America, a fast-paced and often sexually explicit journey from one stranger’s bed, couch, bathroom and bungalow to the next.”-Kirkus Reviews
