So I bought a kilt, have been wearing it for a while, and I love it. . . it is just so comfortable and stylish!

However; problem.

My father still doesn't know about it. . . and, I found out last night, he made a comment to my mother and sister (im not sure how the topic of men wearing skirted garments came up), that only gay men would wear a kilt.

So...how am I going to reconcile this? As he WILL see me in my kilt at some point in the next month.

I dare your dad to go to Scotland and say that.
They'd knock him seven shades of dead.


Haha, that's what I was thinking. I already know that a kilt is the most masculine garment I can possibly wear. But what do I say to him?


tell him that it was a long, difficult, emotional struggle accepting yourself as a scotsman, and that if he loves you he will understand that it is not your choice to be a scot, but rather the way you were made.  and, if he gives you any trouble, whack him with your shillelagh.  : )

if he still thinks a kilt isn't butch enough, show him this guy:



i'm by no means the femme sort of les bean, but it's not unusual for the mood to strike me to go to work in a great-kilt.  just, not on days i ride the motorcycle.

Make sure that when he sees you in your kilt, you're also making out with a girl. Irrefutable evidence that kilts aren't just for the gays.

Well..unfortunately, she and I agreed to give each other "Space" for now, so that isn't the best option. =P

Lmao; great! And yes I am not even scottish. . . I'm Sicilian by ancestry (American by culture), but this utilikilt is far too awesome for that to get in the way. By the way, that's the point of a utilikilt, to be an American product. =)

However, I don't know if it will convince him he's wrong.

If, by 'manly', you mean super-duper-gay, you're absolutely right.
(Maybe if the guy had a shirt on or something....)

i think what makes it so shimmeringly gay is the fact that the back is a modest few inches longer than the front.  it's fetching.

No it couldn't be the fact that the side covering the left leg is conveniently missing. . .

Sorry to hear that, GI.  I'm glad that you're trying to get out of the situation.  The cost of an apartment depends on where you live and what you want to rent.  Why don't you take a look on www.craigslist.org?  You can also find numerous apartment complexes on www.apartments.com.  As for a free place to live, maybe you could look up hostels online?  Aside from that, you may need to get the authorities involved, if you want some temporary assistance from the government.
