I have been drawn to wearing bright colours and rather feminine clothes recently. I have always felt comfortable experimenting with all sorts of styles, be it menswear, flowy soft pastels, neons with ripped jeans, structured feminine shapes or what not. It has always been a question of mood. If I like the look of something, I feel more than comfortable trying it out. Having said that, I don't necessarily feel that my style identity is all over the place. It is the freedom to choose that is the most important thing - from that freedom emerges consistency, and what follows, one's style identity. I have never felt that my sense of style (or anyone else's) was a component or a manifestation of gender per se. If it happened to align with gender conceptions, so be it.
It is courageous of these women to choose to wear what they want, regardless of the society's pressure to hold onto traditional portrayal of what it means to be (and look like) a woman. Reading the article I wasn't entirely sure whether this was a debate about fashion, gender or sexual minorities, which really was the best thing. Whatever the force that drives these women to wear their menswear shouldn't matter. It is their individual choice to do so that is at the heart of it.
