Nothing more, nothing less to be read into it. Its not a statement making act...its not a feminist declaration. Its pants.
Oops, I always wear a dress when I travel these days. For some reason, people are nicer to me then than when I wear pants (e.g. customs, and people behind me on the plane when I'm trying to find my seat and get my luggage on the rack above).

But otherwise I'll wear pants 80 % of the time (apart from summertime, of course). Any guy that complains that women don't wear skirts/dresses enough should wear one himself when it's 10 below outside.

Personally, I'm just more comfortable in jeans

Personally, I think pants are more practical for everyday, casual life. I still wear them for some occasions, however.

I guess some women just find them more comfortable. lol at bryson, I feel you, it does look rather liberating, I wish we could wear a sleeveless tea and a pair of pants and get by w/ it, That would be liberating enough for me.

Because they can.

Besides, pants are usually more modest than skirts, and modesty is a plus.

With pants, you don't have to worry as much about your underwear showing.

I personally prefer to wear skirts and dresses only, with shorts or capris underneath. I find them more comfortable and modest than pants.

However, in an airport, wearing a long skirt (like the type I prefer) will get you a free pat down, as they mess up the scanners. I would consider wearing jeans in that situation instead.

But I don't fly much, so I don't worry about it.

And the cold is not a hindrance to wearing skirts! For instance, I'm wearing a long skirt I made from a pair of sweatpants. They are soooo comfy!

I understand that pants are easier and more practical. As a man, I can honestly say I have no desire to wear a skirt, as previously alluded to.

I do, however, love seeing ladies in skirts and dresses. Just something about it

I think I've worn a skirt maybe 4 or 5 times in the past 5 years.

Jeans all the way!!

I prefer shorts and tanks. I work outside on our farm all summer and find them very comfortable. When the weather changes though, sweats, unless I have to go into town.
I didn't get them stuck in things. Also, I'm not tall. Fashion is not particularly important to me, so I don't really care what others think about how I dress. I've known a woman who lives on a farm in Alaska and only wears skirts. She does everything in them.
