        ambiguous about my understanding of this particular bit of history.

        Didn't mean to imply that it hadn't ever been an issue.

        Was trying to say that since I've always been able to wear what I want, that I've always had that freedom of expression, I  wholly believe that it is oppressive to tell anybody what to wear.

        I came at it from the wrong angle because I was also reacting to what was starting to feel like a sentiment that it was oppressive to wear skirts. When what is oppressive is to be forced to wear skirts. Not the skirts in and of themselves.

        Ok. Enough on that. ;-)
