Some fundamentalist Christians believe that it violates God's law for a woman to wear trousers or for a man not to wear trousers. They support their position with scripture, but their interpretation of Deuteronomy 22:5 and other scriptures misses the mark.
The website Bravehearts in Kilts Against Trouser Tyranny distinguished four motivations for either men or people assigned male at birth to wear a skirt:
- Transgender: a person identifies as a woman instead of a man.
- Freestyler: a person wants to abolish gender stereotypes surrounding clothing in general.
- Ethnic: a person of other than mainland Western European descent shows ethnic pride, or a person attends an ethnic celebration.
- Braveheart: a person wears a skirted garment made for men as everyday attire for comfort or equality reasons.
