NATH-SAKURA: Mysterious passage. Strange place where we can be when, freed of the contingencies of our sex, we rise over the constraints of a pitifully bipolar world. [Nath-Sakura]   Nothing is given to us once for all. Nothing is inevitable. We do not have either to undergo or to make undergo what we are. The role of transgenres consists in showing that there are passages, between the sexes, between the identities, between the existences. [...] We are boatmen, at the same moment smuggled and resistant girls of the shade. [Nath-Sakura, Dualities, LP Editions, 2006]  Tribute to Nath-Sakura Gabrielle Lys December 23rd, 2007.

The Skirt for man in the Gothic universe.

Gothic esthetism

dot  In our society, threatening for minority groups, aggressive by its technological projections, alienating by its media processes and its dictatorship of the pictures, the body remains a rampart to preserve, to find oneself, guarantor of a personal identity threatened by this technological and social environment. To be aware of their body, the Gothics will exacerbate their symbolic report with this one by expressing by clothing something of fundamental in their perception of the world. By the ornament, they nourish the body of symbols and cultivate it by symbols. The Gothic aesthetic universe expresses a rejection of rationalism to the profit of a personal passion. It is a means reaching a spirituality, considering reality differently and granting to the things a aesthetic major sens. The Gothic collective (concerts, exposures, dances) comes to support and reinforce this personal aesthetic research and to cause the will to open out in this aesthetic quest.

The Skirt in the male gothic look

"Only the darkness has the capacity to open to the world the heart of a man."
[ Paul Auster - "the catch room" ]

dot  The black vision suggested by Gothic esthetics returns to certain topics (the Gothic architecture, the Christian art, the vampires, the cinema of the fantastic, black films) like to a constant search for an expression of beauty in the tension, the strange and the decline. The gothic look corresponds to a style at the same time more or less sober and elegant. The esthetism is an essential criterion. The black is the prevalent color. The long black coats, the overcoats, the leather jackets and trousers, the neat hairstyle constitute the "traditional" elements of the male look.

dot  In the other criteria of beauty specific to the Gothic medium, we can find the make-up for men or the port of the Skirt. For the Gothics, it will be seen like something of esthetics and not dressing-up. The sexual differences attenuate through the look and the ornament. The androgyne aspect is developed to be different from the other cultures (the rap for example) and to be opposed to the values traditionally (and wrongfully) associated the masculine: mass production in factories, wars, consumer society,... The Gothic vestimentary style can be difficult to assume: sometimes for its androgyne side , sometimes for his occult connotations or its dictatorship of colors. The people do not recognize the individuals as "Gothics" and consequently develop their own system of categories such for example associating the port of the Skirt to a latent homosexuality.

Bonjour.
Il m'est difficile d'écrire une description de moi.
En avril 2018, agacé de voir la majorité des femmes en pantalon, je me suis dit "pourquoi ne porterais-pas la jupe". Idée qui aurait du me venir à l'esprit beaucoup plus tôt.
Au cours de mes recherches, je suis arrivé à une page du Sénat relative à l'abrogation de l'interdiction du port du pantalon pour les femmes par ordonnance du préfet de police Dubois le 16 brumaire de l'An IX.
Alors comme les femmes sont égales aux hommes depuis la constitution et ont le droit de porter le pantalon (pas parce qu’elles sont femmes comme j’ai toujours pensé et comme m’a dit une fois une jeune fille de gens de voyage), les hommes sont aussi égaux aux femmes et ont les mêmes droits vestimentaires.
C’est ainsi que j’ai décidé de porter la jupe (au féminin pour la variété).
J'ai toujours pensé que le port du pantalon était imposé aux hommes alors que les femmes pouvaient se permettre de se vêtir comme elles en avaient envie.
Pas question pour moi de porter à nouveau un pantalon ou un short sauf nécessité. J'adapte si nécessaire en fonction de mon activité.
