    There's a big difference between gay and mentally disturbed.
    Unfortunately, being mentally disturbed does not prevent one from also being gay.

    AMoonHawk saidUnless this some how is affecting you from performing your job, I think it is his business, and you are the one being offensive, by gossiping with others about him and maybe even creating a hateful atmosphere for him. Sounds to me like you maybe be closeted at work and so are being overly homophobic so you can prove you are straight to your co-workers or you are over reacting to distance your homosexuality from his.


    WTF does this have to do with homosexuality?

    Is this a gay issue now? This guy has no idea how to dress at work.

    P.S. WAREHOUSE. If the guy had worn sandals, would commenting about it be homophobic?

    Warehouses require people to be flexible, lift things, work around machinery...

    It's just not practical usually.

    The HR manual said "you should wear appropriate dress" and the guy read it literally.

    Most crossdressers aren't gay so who's to say he is or isn't except for him. I just don't know why something so innocuous is such a big deal; have you noticed how many violent crimes are committed out there?

    Was his name Max Klinger? Sorry, I couldn't resist. icon_lol.gif

    Male or female, wearing a dress or other loose clothing is dangerous in a warehouse environment. I think that's what Redbull was getting at. It just happened to be the flaming guy in this incident.

    This. You give yourself the right to have sex with men and you're denying his right to wear a dress? What a hypocrite. LOL

    All of you guys who are saying "What is the big deal? This is no big deal!" are so full of shit it is amazing.

    This isn't about individuality, this isn't about being who you are, this isn't even about being gay. For a man to wear a dress for a warehouse job is clearly not appropriate....and it is in rural Virginia. Lynchburg isnt the backwoods, but there are parts of Virginia in which he would not have been safe in a dress.

    It was bad judgement, at best, and a scream for attention, or worst case scenario the beginning of a breakdown. If you think that this is about clothing,.... you are entirely missing the point. Personally, this would make me seek out and befriend this person to find out where his mind is so that I could try to help him. Either help him be more integrated, or help him through a rough patch, or help him make better choices. Hell, I may need to help defend him to others or from others.

    The disingenuous "It isn't a big deal. He is just expressing himself" rings false and sounds pretentious.

    So true alpha. The guy is gay and obviously has issues. Even w/out the dress doesnt look quite right. Me & my best friend feel sorry for him & hve thot about trying to help him out some.

    Being a guy in a dress at work is kinda crazy for around here but this type of job even if 1 of the women wore a dress id be like wtf?!

    100% wrong. No business would accept that kind of employee disruption. Many companies have a dress code for their employees.

    Was it a full dress, or a skirt? I know guys who wear a Utilikit, which is really a heavy-duty skirt sold in many configurations. A Scot does not consider it a true kilt, lacking the generous pleating and fabric patterns of the traditional garment. Most of them also have tool & cargo pockets and other features not found in an original kilt.
