Evan loves to wear skirts and dresses, he says he feels prettier and cooler in them than when he wears pants and a T-shirt. As soon as he wakes up he dresses exactly like the Disney princesses for whom he loves.
Evan is six years old, a boy who wears girls’ clothes. He is one of the adopted children of Eeka Rocha McLeod, a single mom who chronicles almost every moment of her children’s lives on Instagram, in sugary, glossy videos with a studied and perfect direction. Evan has autism and, according to his mother, would best express his joy and joie de vivre in women’s clothing, with long hair, lock dyed red, holding hands with fairy tale heroines Disneyland.
Recently, with a video broadcast on the Instagram profile of the McLeod family, Evan met Robert Reeves, Mick Peterson, Bill Lyons and Jessay Martin, “The Old Gays,” a group composed of four gentlemen of a certain age who are LGBT+ rights activists and are the stars of, among other things, an unscripted docuseries produced by Brian Graden Media.
The four of them wear women’s clothing and “every day they challenge gender stereotypes without setting limits. The Old Gays, with their funny videos, remind us how important it is to be ourselves and to do what makes us feel good, no matter our age.”
It seems that the phenomenon of men, even heterosexual men, liking to wear sheath dresses is gaining popularity.
Even showing up to school in a skirt for some students constitutes a chance to demonstrate solidarity with an increasingly vogue gender ideology, to the point where a teacher was recently punished for not playing along with the pretense.
What a difference, though, from little Sanam, who disguises herself as “Omid” in men’s clothes just to be able to attend school, to ride a bicycle, to help her father at his stall as a mask peddler, to steal a few years of a kind of normality from the female segregation of an Afghanistan that locks women behind the bars of their own sex.
