Welcome, Mark, and thank you so much for your introduction. Best of all is to know that your wife is supportive about your skirt wearing.
In another thread it is for the moment discussed whether a pressure from society on people wearing skirts exists. You are wearing skirts at work and obviously without problems. And you are wearing skirts out and about in bigger German cities without being focused on, even when in heels. That seems to confirm what I think – and have experienced myself – a man can wear a skirt anywhere, anytime without being met with hostility. The only pressure, if there, will in most cases come from wives. But here you are lucky, not to have problems. But first of all, pressure might exist inside the head of the skirt wearer – and with no reason. Society doesn’t care at all what we are wearing.
The language? I neither speak English nor German very well. But it doesn’t matter that much. You can be misunderstood in every language.
