There's a guy who works at the local Walmart who wears kilts. Must be hard to match that blue vest.

Hey I almost forgot about a former male coworker who wore women's shoes. And I'm not talking sensible shoes either!

I had shoe envy.



OP just start around the house and see if you can stand them. Then out to the store - not Walmart or you'll end up on the web site. No need to wear them everywhere. I rarely wear hoops.
Can you grow facial hair?

But like it or not, we are not androgenous...we are men and women. And we all have our perceptions or expectations or whatever...of men and of women. Of course they are individual and unique to a degree, but they are there. To not make a judgement about someone based on their behavior, appearance, voice, WHATEVER, is to not be human. It’s how we live and survive - that learning by experience thing. Read the book Blink, if you haven’t.

The price tag will be high, as the other poster stated. But that’s up to you.
I didn’t read the book of Bink, but I’m really a Darwin adept. I didn’t read his book too, On the origin of species, but what I know about it, really impresses me.

In that case, I think big hoop earrings don’t belong to men. Just like dresses and high heels. It are things that women normally wear, so men can see what’s standing in front of them. Just like women can recognize a man by short(er) hair, trousers and some muscles.

So if people say, get over your gender-issue, it conflicts with the ancient part of our brain. It get confused, don’t’ t know if has to deal with a man or women.

I know, it sound great, wear whatever you want. And I think everybody has to feel free to do so. But there is an other side. The things we’ve agreed in the past.

May be the church is part of this problem. Or solution, just how you see it. Because no government could do it, or wouldn’t, they put something about this on paper. And because no one wanted to go to hell, in times people believed it was possible, everybody followed their rules. And in this way, these rules got recorded in our brain.


So it really confuses me. I want to be free, and wear big hoop earrings, but I want to be part of the normal society al well.

I don't think it's been addressed, and there is an evident language barrier (English is not his first language) and cultural barrier that leads me to believe the OP does not live in North America or Europe.

I'm sorry, but I do live in Europe, in the northern part. English is not my native language, but it's used well where I live.

I’ve thought about your question. I am on record as believing people should wear what they want to, assuming their choices are within the boundaries of decency. But I really do have a problem with a guy wearing large hoop earrings. It is probably because it is something not seen. It is highly unusual. And hoop earrings are regarded as feminine. The fact that you posted about this asking a question makes me feel that you aren’t really ready to do this yourself.
You’re absolutely right. If a lot of other, attractive men were wearing large hoop earrings, they would be in my ears too. There' s no doubt about that.

But it’s hard to be the first one. I’m not in the position to set a trend, and start wearing large hoops. To show how cool I’m. In my opinion I’ll more look like a men with a gender-problem.

In fact, it was my girlfriend who pushed me into the piercing store. She said that I had dreamed enough about earrings and that I had to pierce my ears. So I could finally wear them. And because she made it a birthday present I couldn’t reject it.

If I even wanted to do. Wearing earrings was al that I wanted! But now it has evolved in wearing large hoop earrings.

How about you just wear them at home, or at least outside of work? Women have different wardrobes for work, home, clubbing, etc. and they are appropriate for those environments. Why do you have to wear big hoops all the time? THAT'S the important question for you to think about...if you're so concerned.
May be big hoop earrings are a fetish to me. I don’ t know. I love it when a woman wears them (not a man). It really makes me hot.

That’s what I love so much about my girlfriend. She wears her big hoops very frequently, when we’re together. But not all the time, because they don’t fit in every situation.

I remember she was wearing her big hoops when I met her. And when we kissed for the first time. That made me so happy. I never had a girlfriend with big hoop earrings. Most of the women who were wearing big hoop earrings, acted like a *****. And didn't like me at all. Like her girlfriend. But she was different. She was really interested in me. That was something I had never experienced before, with a women.

It’s no problem for me not wearing big hoop earrings at work. I’m happy that it’s allowed to wear the hoops that I wear nowadays. They’re not small, for a man, like studs. But it would be great if I had no doubt about wearing big hoop earrings in private. Not only at home. Or at clubbing, because I think it would be nice to show my hoops in there. But not in the evening outside the club! Then I would be scared to be beaten up.

A kilt is absolutely appropriate, and quite normal to see on a man. We have many men that wear kilts here. No one bats and I, and I actually think they’re kind of sexy.

Okay now you are starting to sound a little off-kilter. Definitely a fetish. And fetishes are not something to be displayed in the workplace.
