This thread is not limited to this first post example so post come what may. Saw this video of boys being told they could not wear shorts to school during a heat wave so their parents dressed them up in skirts. This is an example of the effeminization of men in what is commonly known as "Western Society". In my day, we would just tear our pant legs off to make shorts if we wanted to. And, if a boy showed up in school wearing a skirt he would have been sent home for dressing inappropriately (though this never happened that I can recall because the shame would have been so enormous the kid would have to change schools).
