A Quora Question - Wearing A Skirt

 If I wear a skirt or a dress everyday, will I get used to it?

Jo Wolfe - At 8 I realised I just didn’t get this boy stuff but in 1960s Manchester of course you just got on with it. For the next 50 years I tried to live according to the expectations of others always knowing ‘normal’ is not for me.  Read more of JO's profile

If you are female, absolutely, if you are male it takes about five seconds wearing a skirt or dress before you think ‘this is awesome,why do men wear trousers?’.

Either way it takes a while to get used to doing things such as sitting down properly, picking things up from the floor, getting in and out of a car, depending on the skirt length walking up and down stairs but other than that it’s fab.

Sadly for skirt wearing men it’s the reaction of idiots that may present a problem depending on where you live, but if it’s safe to do so, go for it.

I’m transgender, when I answered this question originally I hadn’t fully admitted it, now I have and I am so happy.


  1. I'll add - by dressing NOT to stand out, save for being "well put together", people assume you to be of the gender in which you are presenting.

  2. people see what they expect to see so if you are not over the top they see a woman and move on emily

  3. Please click to this days Hanna McKnight blog for further discussion on this matter.

    Most persons have similar feelings and sensibilities of self.
    The bottom line is that we are all thinking about what the other thinks about US.
    The reality is that WE are mostly concerned about OUR SELVES!
    These feelings are also symptomology of sufferers of HSP--'Highly Sensitive Person'. Suffers of HSP also have issues with being VICTIM OF CHILDHOOD BULLYING.

    There are numerous online sites where Doctors will prescribe BETA BLOCKERS which help with the management of SYMPTOMS STAGE FRIGHT AND SOCIAL ANXIETY.
    I was prescribed the beta blocker 'Atenolol' -25mg for a similar issue after a mild case of COVID-19.
    I only wish I had this med when I was age 6, NOT age 67. This med was LIFE CHANGING- but do take care.
