50. Do you ever wish you were a man or could dress like a man or had a man’s body? Was there ever a time in the past?

I've never wished to be a man, but I've worn menswear ever since I was a little vintage shopper. I have a very nice tuxedo cutaway jacket and a couple cummerbunds. I am most partial to wingtips.

I've never wanted to dress like a man, since their wardrobes are boring as shit.
However, there are many times I've wanted a man's body. Why? Easy: periods.

Yes there was. I few kilos back men's trousers were better for me than womens. There are often too short sleeves in womens clothes, still.

not really.

I love androgynous style but the overall elements to it aren't exactly me. Men can have cool things to wear, but they look 100000000000 times sexier on women.

I have often thought that it would be very easy to be a man for occasions like balls or weddings. I don't think like that so much when it comes to going to work, even though I suppose it would be much easier to just rotate between a few suits and shirts and ties each week.

I wish I could dress like a man. I like men's fashion and go for androgynous styles anyway. I think I could have some fun if I went all out.

No,but men's clothes look cute on me and on women in general. And they're comfy.

I did dress in guys clothes for a few months To try it out. It was a phase. Jeans, shirts, boxers and shoes

Yes. I had a phase were I deeply wished I could wear custom tailored suits, pocket squares, and cuff links. I was obsessed with cufflinks. I recently tried wearing them with a shirt with french cuffs, though, and hated it in practice.

I do love a good man's shoe, although that is someone out of necessity as I have large feet and many manufacturers do not produce women's shoes in my size.

I have wished to be a man, not because I really want to be one, but because I sometimes just want to escape the cripplingly oppressive forces of misogyny and body-shaming that are an unavoidable part of being a woman.

When i figured out that men and women are not really equal in society and that we still need feminism

No, but I'd like to have the physical strength of a man.

I would love to have a man's body. As it is my wardrobe is more masculine than a lot of my friends'.

Only on days when I don’t know what to wear. I know a man who wears the exact same thing every day and I think that’s something only a man could do. I think women can wear a variation on the same thing every day, but not the exact same thing. Women have accessories to contend with. So on days, when I can’t decide what to wear, I think about how much easier it would be if I was a man and I could wear the exact same thing I wore the day before. However, I would never want to have a man’s body and I generally find men’s clothes a little banal.
