What would happen if guys wore frilly dresses, and gals wore 3 piece suits? What would happen to our society? What would change about us? Because, we would change, you know, substantively, guaranteed. But what would that change be? How would it manifest itself in real world terms?
Naturally, what makes all this so difficult for so many, is that it stabs the heart of the oldest conceptions we have of male and female, their roles, uses, and meanings. That we have so much trouble with men wearing women's clothing is understandable, since this is a patriarchal culture that elevates the male, and suppresses the female. The substructure of this problem is the erroneous assumption that a man wearing women's clothing is somehow less male, and therefore less powerful,
less worthy of respect. If you have spent any time at all hanging around drag queens, you know how
wrong headed that is. In this culture it takes supreme chutzpah to do what drag queens do.
So, getting back to the essential question of how this would change us, I can see that ultimately it would be freeing for all concerned, and could result in an easing of some significant social tensions. I'm not saying we would suddenly all sit around in a circle and sing Kumbaya, but there would be a few less things for us to bash each other with. That can only be a good idea.
