Frocks for men !

What is it with society about clothes? Women can wear absolutely anything and get away with it. But not me (or men in general).
I can wear women's trousers, flat women's shoes, women's jumpers, even some women's tops and get away with it.
I wear women's jewellery round my neck.
But two things seem taboo. I can't wear women's earrings without people staring and worse still I can't put on a dress or a skirt without people thinking I am... well you know what I mean.
So I can wear a kilt. That's acceptable. So why is a kilt acceptable on a man but not a tartan skirt for every day wear. Why does society have this prejudice against men in skirts that doesn't seem to cross the line to women's fashion.
Why can't I wear tights and a skirt in public without the 'sniggers' etc. - more likely from other men. What is it about this fashion garment that is so sacrosanct and left to women only.
Wouldn't I just love to wear a long dress on a posh night out rather than a 'same as all the other men' suit.
Come the revolution, as they say, I'll be shot in my frock...

I suspect in the U.S.A. you would get the same, so don't think it is just a British reaction. That said my best friend has a hand bag he carries around with him all the time. I have never seen him get much reaction to this. Although if it was a shiney black one with pearl clasps it might not be the same.....we are all a strange lot.
