A funny thing about human biology is that both men and women require both estrogen and testosterone for our bodies to function as they should. Women require more estrogen and men require more testosterone, but both are present in all of us. That’s right, guys. No matter how virile and manly you are, there is a little woman in you!
As shocking as it may seem considering how alien women are to us guys, we have much in common biologically speaking. Now consider the prospect of bridging the gap. I think many of us would agree we would not prefer women to be more masculine in nature. The reason we love them so is derived from that mysterious feminine wile that makes the so irresistible. Suffice it to say, women would prefer we came over to their side just a little.
Now I am not saying we should dress up in drag to get an idea of what walking around in high heel shoes feels like. But do we really need a dress code that requires women to wear heels eight hours a day in the workplace? Men are not expected to go to this length. Our dress shoes are quite comfortable by comparison. But this is only a mild example where we could ease up a bit on the fairer sex.
Bras are damn uncomfortable. Don’t ask me how I know this. Even the most expensive bras become torturous over an eight hour day. We may find it arousing to turn a corner and happen upon a woman adjusting her bra or hose. Perhaps you have been snuggling with your wife and seen those deep red marks under her arms where her bra has dug into her skin. Come on, guys. We can do better! Sport bras are far more comfortable for our ladies than their man-made counterparts.
The societal watchdogs who have determined what is appropriate for workplace attire failed to require guys to wear a suit of armor for eight hours a day. Perhaps it is time we addressed the obvious and provided the same consideration for our ladies. I was actually somewhat astounded to have it brought to my attention women were still subjected to this barbaric double standard. Like most guys, I thought our lady coworkers were simply dressing every day for my viewing pleasure. Maybe a day out of the week in high heel shoes and a bra would be good for us guys as well.
