Favorite Movie Genre: Supernatural Horror/psychological thrillers.

Favorite Food: Pizza because that's what healthy people amirite.

Favorite Holiday: Halloween.

Favorite Memory: Seems odd for this question by my favorite memory is deeply personal.  I'll say that it's from the summer of 2006.

Worst Memory: Finding out my mother passed away.  While kicked out of the house.  While family wasn't really talking to me.  While having to them callously detail what happened and employ a jaded sense of relief as they never much cared for my mother due to her lifestyle choices.  Yeah, that shit won't ever leave me any time soon.  A slew of increasingly shitting events followed this impacting me even worse.  The end of 08 and the start of 09 was a fucking shit time for me.

Age: 28

Favorite Outfit: Black shirt, baggy black pants.  Boots.  Baggy hoodie depending on the weather.

Favorite Genre Of Music: Metal.  Doesn't really matter the genre.  Up there is also ambient both regular and dark, as well as Synthwave and most goth/industrial stuff.

Most Hated Genre of Music: Current era EDM.  Bring back the house influenced EDM from around 2006 to 2008 plz.  I miss that.

Left Handed or Right Handed: Right.

Worst Injury: Cracked left femur, hip injuries and lower spine issues after an ATV accident.  Latter resulting in chronic serious back pain.  Fun.

Favorite Hobby: Music creation.

Your Definition of Success: Everyone will define success differently, mine is personally immaterial.  Success is being able to live peacefully and quietly without drama or issues from outside forces.  Weird, I know, coming from a person known on here for having loudly bitched about various things on YouTube for years.

In your opinion, are situations typically black and white: No.

Thanks for both. Because of that feeling I was talking about, I didn't have motivation to post things in forums. Now I'm enjoying it. Writing here is also a good practice for me, or this is an excuse for me to slack off ;)

@ShotgunDemolition, when can I come for a visit? :-P

Whenever you want! :)

But like many of you guys, I live in a city, so besides some ancient castles and museums here and there, you won't see much where I live. Though, if you visit anything, except big crowded cities, like for an example an island (there are 2000 islands here) or a village or an archaeological site, I am sure you would like it. There everybody knows each other (gossip can be a little problem, but that is to be expected, when they don't have anything to do), there is quiet, you can sit in a traditional coffee house, meet the wise sages (they are closer to experienced, tired people that have been working hard in their lives and get to rest, for a short while till the inevitable), go sightseeing and of course taste the Mediterranean cuisine. It is easily one of the healthiest in the world (olive oil basically), but even in my country, younger people don't generally live by it (fast food came here too, as in all the other countries of the world).

Overall, come visit us! :D

I'd only do that if I were a woman, if only to compete with other women. Otherwise going drag as a guy is just the wrong approach. Face it, manly clothing is never memorable; you just have to complement it with your presence and doing all kinds of stuff.

"Ditto" is a slang term meaning "same." Just above that, I explained why I didn't put down a best memory -- for the same reason, I didn't put down a worst memory.

Why would we all go with dresses and makeup in a gender-neutralized world. Wouldn't it be easier and more convenient if we all just wore clothes that were comfortable and practical?

I didn't say anything about makeup. Nor that 'all' would wear dresses, as opposed to merely having the option to without it being out-of-the-norm (hence 'could'). Also dresses seem pretty comfortable and practical, anyway.

People often use clothings and dresses to identify themselves to a certain look or a group of person.

Oh, my bad! I guess I assumed "waxing" was some cosmetic. (Can you tell I don't know anything about fashion? :-P)

 

I guess I could see someone thinking dresses are more comfortable than pants. I just know my sisters sometimes have difficulties and awkwardnesses with dresses -- for example, certain theme-park rides buckle under the crotch, bicycling is awkward and slightly dangerous, etc.

You hobby being Math explains that. It's pretty fun when you understand complex maths, the feeling of things connected by logical reasoning or such.

Pure convenience is boring. The easy way isn't necessarily the best way either. And practical clothes might look "meh" to say the least. You know what's actually practical? Finding another person's style of clothing interesting enough to talk to them and ironically crank out a cheap pick-up line, because that's how babies are made, or rather that's where it starts more often than not. :p

Yeah, let people wear what they think is right for them without judging. That's how it should be. Also, I can confirm that dresses and skirts  are comfortable and practical at the same time in their own right. Take that "Mr.Cargo-pants because practical"! ;-)

HaHa! I don't like cargo pants -- I have a pair, but the pockets like to snag on things like car bumpers and cabinet knobs. Not very practical, IMO. ;-)

Usually when I think "out-of-norm" look, I imagine bright and crazy hairstyles, (glowing) vests, boots of varying height, single colored "visors", wide pants tucked in the boots, and belts whenever possible. Of course, when thinking of a "urban warrior" that is.

 

Usually, very colorful robes or shirts. I never imagined dresses as "out of norm" or something. However, this can indeed look jarring to some folks of fragile morale. But as long as one isn't naked nor exactly clad in experimental power armor (also armed and powered up), I am not sure I would freak out at anything else really. I dunno why, but being naked doesn't sound comftorable to me like people keep saying. But well, considering where I live and what I am walking through every day, I guess being walking around naked on some warm isolated beach is not bad. But still, seeing someone getting inside a car naked and whatever, ugh... yuck.

 

Which kinda brings us back to why norms still exist with regard to dressing. It may be comftorable for you, but for other people, it might as well not be.

I suppose I have a bit of an anecdote... hopefully it ends up being somewhat relevant ^_^

 

When I first started transitioning, I remember getting a lot of advice that "women don't always wear dresses or skirts", with the implication that I shouldn't either otherwise I'd look out of place, among other things.  They were passed off as formal, antiquated, or impractical, so I should save them for special occasions.

 

The thing is, I prefer them.  They're simply more comfortable for me personally, and the style I wear (goth) tends to favor dresses and skirts for women anyway.  Plus I was still smart enough to know that some situations simply call for different clothes, like when I go fishing or hiking, or I'm doing some sort of intense physical labor.  In those situations I tend to wear tactical pants and combat boots for the pockets and durability.  Well, I wear combat boots with dresses too... but that's besides the point :-P  My point is, does it really matter what I wear?  So what if I just happened to like dresses?  Just because I prefer them doesn't mean I'm going to force others to wear them.  They can wear whatever the hell they want.

 

In the end, I decided that I should just wear whatever I want, and so for the past six years, I've mostly worn dresses - and no one has ever given a crap, either.
