“Feminine” things men want to do

Heh, the men of the Pagan/SCA/fantasy/SF community have been doing all those things for the past 40 years. Mundane guys just need to screw their courage to the sticking point, and stop thinking the world will end if some jerk calls them 'gay' when they're really not.

That said, yoga pants are great for home and the gym, but they are not flattering to most bodies, and really require a tunic or skirt to be seemly in public. Tacky enough that there are so many women displaying every line of their crotches and butts, without the men doing it too.

I have a long, old riff about being a beautifully turned out woman being another sort of tech. Everyone likes to talk about their craft/hobby/tech.
But guys don't seem to be allowed to see it that way.
