Street Fighter Leggings Raise an Important Issue


One of the quote “gayest” things I’ve ever said is when I remarked that it must be pretty fun to be a girl because they get to wear a lot of different, colorful pieces of clothing, along with accessories and jewelry and cool shoes. Being a guy means your choices are a lot more limited, and it becomes “which sort of collared shirt do I want to wear out tonight” or “should I wear my dark jeans or my really dark jeans?”

Do you understand what I’m saying here? It’s not that I want to dress up in girl clothes as a guy, nor do I long to have ladyparts, but buying clothes as a male is just a drag, and girls can have a lot more fun with it. I think that’s why they like shopping so much. Now you all are probably questioning my sexuality, so I’ll have my fiancee make a post later explaining that I am indeed straight despite my propensity to raise issues like this one.

ANYWAY, case in point, I can never wear Street Fighter leggings in a socially appropriate way, and that is sad.

  1. On the one hand, I know exactly what you mean. Socially acceptable women’s clothing options are MUCH more varied than men’s and it would be fun to be able to wear wildly different types of clothes day after day.

    On the other hand, us guys also get it pretty easy. As a guy, I can get buy with 3 or so pairts of pants, 7-8 shirts and 2 pairs of shoes and still be considered relatively stylish (even with un-brushed floppy hair and a five-o-clock shadow). Even if I am feeling lazy that day and don’t feel like dressing up, I am still pretty confident that my outfit looks nice.

    Adversely, women don’t have as much luxury and seem to be judged by their clothing choices much more harshly than men. So there is an unfotunate balance there.

    1. Yes, yes, I know wearing leggings would not make you gay. That’s not what I was saying. And perhaps I was (jokingly) too defensive.

      Anyway, I just think buying and wearing guy clothes is pretty boring, but yeah, it’s easier and less thought so I suppose that makes up for it.

  2. Seconding what Lima said. Referencing that fact that some woman can confirm your fervent love of vagina makes you sound all of thirteen. No one cares about your sexual orientation, be it gay, straight, or equal opportunity shagger.

    And even if you WERE the gayest gay who ever gayed, your desire to wear leggings would have zero to do with that.

  3. Eh, it’s not so bad. These days there are plenty of shirts and the like a guy can buy to showcase his nerd pride. I, uh, don’t think I would want Street Fighter or even Iron Man (whom I love) plastered all over my pants (you couldn’t pay me to wear leggings) anyway.

    Women do have more options in styles and such but I really don’t see it as an issue. Plus, as Frothy ham points out, there are pluses. It is really easy for a guy to dress up for a special occasion, while it is harder for a woman.

    And don’t worry, some of the weird things that pop into my head, I wouldn’t want people thinking I was a homosexual or something else either. 🙂

  4. Don’t get too excited about women’s clothes.

    My biggest annoyance is that they generally have pockets so small as to make them worthless, or lack pockets entirely.

    That’s just the tip of the iceberg, tied with sizing that changes from brand to brand, so a size 8 is different in every store.

  5. In the mid to late sixties and through the seventies, men’s fashions were very much more colourful and interesting. The problem is that fashion these days sucks in a big way being a mixture of boring colours and dreadful quality.
    Nothing fits properly any more but for the ladies there is still more care being taken over how clothes are cut and the types and colours of fabrics.
    Just how it is until designers decide that men need to look good again instead of scruffy mediocre.
