On January 1, 2019 I started my ME MY, VIRTUAL LIFE project.
ME MY relates to a worldwide movement of people who oppose traditional gender views. In this project case it is about the desire of men to be able to dress the way they want. This also means, among other things, that dressing oneself as a woman, not from a denial of one’s own sex, but to freedom to ignore the strict separation between men’s and women’s clothing. If you want to go out as a man in women’s clothing, that is still offensive, dangerous.
MY VIRTUAL LIFE
From a cultural sociological perspective, it is a fact that in many countries women can wear men’s clothing. The female travesty has been accepted. But the opposite is true of men.
Psychological and sociological explanations can be given for this. Perhaps the main reason is that all people unconsciously discriminate. When the first women started wearing men’s clothing, they did so from a so-called ‘upgrade’; the oppressed woman placed herself on the same line as the man. During that time, this caused anger and aggression in many men.
But from the 1970s, women could dress as they wished.
At that time, this caused anger and aggression in many men.But from the 1970s, women could dress as they wished.
But when a men is wearing women’s clothing, they are told that they are betraying their sexes, that the are perverse, filty freaks, and so on.
Yet something has been going on about gender neutrality since the new millennium.
In this project, gender neutrality represents the wish not to be guided by unwritten rules about how you should dress, but that you dress what you want, the moment you want it.
