Recently I got into a dust off over a discussion over gender and clothing on a christian furry board I am part of. Eventually the conversation came around can a man wear an article of clothing of the opposite sex. Some of agree that there a difference between transvestitism fetish and style. I brought up my donning a Hello Kitty backpack for purely aesthetical reasons and not a sexual fetish. One particular fellow misapplied Deuteronomy 22:5 “A woman shall not wear a man’s garment, nor shall a man put on a woman’s cloak, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord your God.” He applied to all situations and the church today rather and specifically to the Israelite people as God gave them the law before they were to enter the promise land. (This is far I am going since this is not a theological discussion) .
The skinny of it is there a lot more to Deuteronomy 22:5 but a guy just wearing and apparel or accessory is not enough to be a violation of this verse. As I refuted his argument, I started thinking and like to know have any guys wear Hello Kitty items like shoes or a shirt.
Since there is not much Hello Kitty for apparel men, my question is do you buy Hello Kitty apparel regardless they were made for the opposite sex. I can say I do in away with my back pack. I seen picture of guys wearing Hello Kitty PJ’s In addition, how about the new Hello Kitty X Vans collection of shoes and backpacks, I have to admit if I was looking for new backpack I would get one of the Vans. The new slip-ons look like a guy could getaway wearing them.
I would like to know so leave a comment.
Ps. while doing some research, I went to the Vans webpage and noted the adult Hello Kitty shoes are listed in boys and men along comparative women’s sizes. Is Vans sending us a message foreseeing men and boys purchasing the shoes for themselves?
But last the do not make them in size 15 for me and the custom build page does not include Hello Kitty designs. 🙁
