Skip to comments.Fashion industry, retailers and the gender binary

As a transgender woman who began her transition about a year ago, Kylie Jack is still figuring out her fashion style, but she wanted one thing right away: well-fitting bras.
Friends recommended Petticoat Fair in Austin, Texas, where she lives. The lingerie shop is known for one-on-one fittings, but Jack was denied access to the area where professionals work privately with customers after being asked if she was an anatomical female. [ ]
A gender binary exists in fashion, and thats a challenge for those who dont conform. Masculine-presenting women are often destined for boys departments or bad fits, while people born male who transition or simply like to dress in femme clothes sometimes dont know what to expect in sizing or from sales clerks.

Mutilate yourself and wonder why the clothes don’t fit? Really? Boo fricking hoo. call the Waaahmbulance.
The emergency waambulance system originated with liberalism and their perpetual false-victim status.
Um. no.... it's a man
Not merely words like "masculine presenting" but most of the rest of what this woman was quoting these people as saying!
Total BS psychobabble!
Lord save us from this!
Everyone is a Victim, victim of this, victim of that, now we have victims of the fashion industry boo hoo, meanwhile the economy is burning to the ground and the borders are wide open...
Actually, those are women. Unless you’re calling Chaz Bono a man?
That is definitely the right response
They make it confusing on purpose
I really don’t have a problem with this. I mean, women crossdress all the time. They wear boys jeans, shirts, shoes and sometimes the underwear. I have met crossdressers in the malls and out to eat. No biggie. Who cares? If that’s what they want, then so be it. By the way, I’m skinny and my wife wears my levis all the time and I think she looks hot in them. And when she wears nothing but one of my flannel shirts, she’s hot
A two to three percentage point customer base has very little profit potential except for the expensive specialty items.
You sure you are on the right forum?
To be sure.
LOL, yeah, I’m on the right forum. Don’t get your panties in a knot. Who cares what they do? I don’t. I’m too worried about saving my retirement IRA and keeping weeds out of the garden. And planting more fruit trees. I could give a rats you know what about transgenders and such. They can’t impact my live at all

Funny story, I once met a woman who literally looked like she was a man in drag and she had two children that she had actually given birth to. Wow, she wasn’t even Asian and she had a Asian Surname, MAN-LEE... That was a joke.
The funny thing was that she would actually have looked better had she not tried so hard to cake makeup and mascara on, she literally looked like a drag queen...
I kinda felt sorry for her, I could only imagine how many times she was actually mistaken for a man in drag.
that is pretty messed up
Your reaction shows a certain intent.
If you’re going to worry about your retirement money more than the moral state of the country, you won’t have any. Yes, they do impact your life, especially if they arouse God to start fighting against the country. I wonder if you believe that?
