The other day I was walking through a store and cut through the women’s clothing section and found myself fighting off the urge to look and I noticed how uncomfortable I was because men are supposed to be uncomfortable in the women’s section even though the panties and jeans I was wearing were from the same area of that store from a few weeks prior. As men we are taught that women’s clothing is a mystery and something to only be viewed on a woman’s body for erotic purposes and viewing or touching it at any other point in time will suck the masculinity right out of us and make our penis shrink. Women in the men’s department looking through clothes is considered normal even if they are by themselves; but a man in the women’s department should always be escorted, disinterested, and uncomfortable unless he is beside the fitting rooms uncomfortably staring at his phone waiting for the woman to come out. If we show any interest in the clothing then we are considered perverts even though we may simply be helping our female significant others choose what clothes look good on them, and even if we are looking at the clothes for ourselves that doesn’t make us perverts. I am tired of this double standard as appreciating and wearing women’s clothes doesn’t make me a sexual predator and so I have decided to walk through women’s sections whenever possible and hold my head high and if something catches my eye I’ll look as things of beauty should be appreciated not shunned.
