A Twitter user, simply identified as @OmogeDami, says all items of clothing should be gender neutral i.e it should be worn by the male and female sex.
@OmogeDami said in reality, there’re no feminine and masculine things because they all have characteristics and feminine/masculine are tremendously ineffective ways of grouping them.
@OmogeDami said being a male cannot be classified as gender because bodies should not be gendered.
In a tweet thread, the Twitter user gave her two cents about gender, male domination and feminism.
See “Gender Is [email protected]’s tweets:
“Trousers are not masculine clothes, skirts are not feminine clothes. These things change with culture. IN FACT, skirts are better for male people, it allows their balls breathe.
“All clothing should be gender neutral.
“Liking to put on makeup should not be considered “feminine” it shouldn’t be any different from how some people like wearing dark colours or urban wear or tattoos. It should be an appearance preference.. full stop.
“The whole idea of “feminine”/”masculine” presents the idea that there are two polar points on a straight line and some of us fall on either or somewhere in-between when in reality it’s a circle, there’s no straight line.
“In reality, there’re no feminine and masculine things, just things. things can be calm and gentle, brash and harsh, mellow and subtle.. things have characteristics and feminine/masculine are tremendously ineffective ways of grouping them.
“Male is NOT a gender, it is a sex..AND yes, bodies should not be gendered.
“Men are trash including mine… Because men are trash has little to do with individual men and rather everything to do with the sociopolitical systemic enabling of trashiness in men… but you knew this, you just like to play stupid.
“So many men in my mentions with diff variations of ‘I’ll rather walk naked than wear a skirt’
“While I appreciate nudity, I can’t help but wonder what the issue with skirts is.
“My verdict is that men secretly love skirts & they wish they could show off their ties in dem minis.
“Your eyes are just used to them looking one particular way. if you were born in a world where clothes weren’t gendered you’ll likely have a different view. Half of the things we all wear today might have been considered aesthetic disasters some centuries ago.
“It works for me, because feminism is not an academic pursuit for most, its survival. Men are trash has opened so much conversation to ordinary people who wouldn’t have had them otherwise. Men are trash, no one is forcing anything.
“Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Men are scum and all its variations are extremely effective phrases.
“They immediately decentre men’s feelings which is the number one cause for a lot of the violence women face.
“They shock a world that cuddles “manness.”
