Nothing is wrong, it's just American culture to worry and be insecure. We're an insecure country, thats why we are fascinated with telling others how to carry themselves and live their lives.

However, for me I wear flip flops. It's too damn hot in Phoenix, AZ. I don't "sashay" or anything, however I have a butt, that has booty cheeks just like every other man and woman does, so therefore the middle section my body is going to go side to side just a little. It's not like men with sandles are sashaying, snapping their fingers and rolling their neck.

To all the women who thinks that, there is a point in time where your man has to walk barefoot. Watch him in the house and I guarantee you he is going to walk differently than he would if he had shoes on.

American culture is the most gender role obsessed in the Anglosphere. Drop it, evolve and perhaps people will be happier?

I wear nothing but flip-flops, except when I'm wearing water buffaloes. I only wear shoes when I'm biking, and that's only until I get to the park.

I'm also much older than you, and I've been doing that for years and years.

I don't really care what other people think. If other people give me lots and lots of money, then perhaps, just maybe, I will take their thoughts into consideration, uh, briefly, at least, for a fleeting moment.

Other than that, I'm not really into people telling me what to do. I do what I want to do and I do what works for me, everyone else can go to hell.

Comfortably flip-flopping along....

Mircea

I do care if either gender wears sandals and they have nasty untrimmed toenails though.
and since most men do not take care of their feet, it just looks bad.

With that logic anyone who is obese should be wearing full clothing at all times.

Why is it women are told they MUST shave their legs, armpits and when they get older pluck the hairs from their chin and above lip? This is natural for women to have hair in all those places yet men think its not feminine for women to have body hair. So why is it wrong if women think men shouldn't prance around and look feminine then? For all you guys whining over your right to look like a girl then you need to shut it and allow your women to be hairy and also not cover up their greys either. Again you can do what you want because its a free country, but that doesn't mean you will be appealing to others so don't get mad at them if you don't get the reception you hoped for.

I just had a tall, scrawny dude in flip flops and what I consider a girl's style tank top with long pink hair talk to me at Walmart. I thought it was a girl till he spoke so deeply it couldn't have been a female and then I noticed his adams apple. Is that the look the young girls are going for in a guy now? lol

You should head to Target instead for a bit more cleaned up demographic.

Depending an the outfit, I think it is childish and ridiculous looking when it is hot out and a guy is not wearing sandals.
