I'm not wearing them out of the house, though.

I say if they are comfortable and feel good, then wear them wherever you please.

If people start wearing something after awhile nobody really pays much attention.

Exactly, and that's what I'm hoping for.

Men should be able to wear short shorts when they please, I agree with that. However I honestly can't bring myself to find that look attractive, it looks so silly to me and I am completely straight btw.

Thank you for the honesty. Rep points given! I don't wear them seeking to be attractive, just to stay cool in the oppresively hot weather. I do not find that long shorts provide that. If I may ask, why do you find that look silly?

Well it depends what type of short shorts you are talking about. I wouldn't look twice at a man if he had on shorts that were a little above his knees, but if he had on shorts that were all up in his butt I would find that strange. Mostly because I am just not use to that look on men, if it was norm like women wearing those types of shorts, I and other women would probably eventual learn to find it attractive.

If you feel comfortable wearing them, then rock on. It would be interesting if the majority of men starting wearing their shorts shorter, male fashion is pretty boring and that would certainly spice things up. Most young men I see usually dress like they are going to the gym(basketball shorts/long t shirts). Thanks for the rep btw!

I dont believe anyone is saying they want to see men wearing up the butt cheeks hanging out bootie shorts. What i believe the men on here are saying (or referring to) is shorts that cover the butt and genitalia with an extra inch or so "just in case". Shorts that go down to the knees or further have well more than enough material to cover a man's genitalia and buttocks. Its complete overkill (so to speak).

So like these?

I think most men regardless of their size would look fine in those type of shorts. Wear whatever makes you happy.

The shorts in the last pic are kinda pushing it but if youll notice the lady doesnt seem to have a problem with them.

Based on the pics I have seen of my dad and his friends when they were teenagers, shorts that short didn't seem that uncommon in the 70s. Wonder what happen.
