something to honk about
It’s not the reason you think. This is not a post about sexism or misogyny. It is a simple matter of anatomy. And freedom.
That is the reason. When men want to pee outside they turn their back and they’re being more or less discreet about it, right? Well, in a skirt (not a mini-skirt) a woman can be discreet as well. We can simply crouch under our little clothing tent and go. With a little practice, we can even look like we’re not even peeing while doing it. To the untrained eye, we might just appear be searching for something we dropped.
Yep, peeing outdoors. Because indoor plumbing is not always an option, depending on where you are.
I’m sure not saying that women should wear skirts. That would be stupid. Women should wear whatever the hell they want to wear. I’m just pointing at that in those moments where peeing outdoors becomes either desirable or necessary, a skirt can help you go with the flow.
Do I think that this could be one of the main, if not THE main, reason why women traditional have worn skirts in so many cultures around the world and through time? Yes, yes I do.
What do you think?
