I hear some people are mad online about a bloke wearing a slightly floofy dress on a magazine cover.

Imagine having the bandwidth this year to even have an opinion beyond "ooh he looks nice in that" or "I didn't realise style magazines were still a thing in pandemic times".

Enough of this. Bring back manly men. Like Alexander the Great. Can you imagine him riding into battle wearing a short dress?

The problem is that the West has become weak. Eastern cultures have always had strong, no-nonsense manly despotic men. Definitely wouldn't wear dresses or care about their clothes.

How are you supposed to do manly things like look happy about the prospect of cracking skulls, if you're wearing something like a floofy skirt?

@hugh skirt = female = weak only in white european culture...

@hugh Ah ah, yeah! I mean, maybe they had some silly crossdressers ofc, but no way you'd see members of these manly civilisations' elites and men of power in dresses. :D
