"Something is afoot in men's fashion. So steady yourselves, because high heels for the heftier sex are making a comeback...The man-heel-or "meel" as some have termed it - is simultaneously a coming trend in several wildly different milieus."[TimesOnline]



I think heels are awkward on lots of people, because they are linked to so many health problems. But if men want to wear them, whatever! I certainly don't think it's "gross" for men to wear women's-style clothing. I hate to be a broken record here (aw, who am I kidding, it's like a full-time job for me to be an ass!), but it's slightly transphobic to say that men wearing women's clothing is gross or unnatural or whatever. It's fine to not be attracted to it; your sexual preferences are your own. But gender policing is kindof a shitty thing to do, especially over footwear.
