Seriously, what's with that? Is he disguising himself to sneak past a security guard?
    That is your value judgment. I don't wear, nor am I interested in wearing women's clothes, but I don't feel it is my place to judge others for doing so. If you wish to argue that you feel it is tasteless for men to wear women's clothes, then feel free to do so, but don't try to impose that value judgement on me.

    No, people are supposed to go out of their ways to be considerate of other people. I'm willing to do my part, and I expect others to do the same without being asked.

    So in other words, they also have to be mind readers.

    When I've seen men in the women's clothing section or near the women's dressing rooms, it's almost always because the wife dragged him there.

    You even see it as a comedy routine (in commercials and such). The woman comes out of the dressing room in different outfits, asks the guy's advice, and then buys exactly the opposite of what the man recommended.

    I also see women in the men's clothing section or discreetly hanging around the men's dressing rooms. Usually they are girlfriends and wives who don't trust their guy to dress himself properly or know the latest fashion. You see them debating and discussing with the salesman or the tailor while the boyfriend or husband stands there silently looking uncomfortable.

    Just another sign that it's really women who run the world.

    It takes a psychic to figure out common courtesy? That explains a lot.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I'm sorry. I did not realize that it was common knowledge that if you are a male trying on women's clothes in a store that only has one dressing room, that you are suppose to go find another store out of respect for all the women who might or might not care whether you use that dressing room. Forgive me for not getting that memo from the courtesy police.

    Yes, that was my point. Taste is a value judgment. It doesn't make sense to impose it, no matter how common it is thought to be.

    You said the following, however:

    You defended their choice with a value judgment, and I pointed out another value judgment that could condemn it... whose is right? It doesn't clear the situation up at all.

    Settle down turbo, it's not that funny.

    If you wouldn't mind please, can you tell me what stores cater to both men and women that only have unisex fitting rooms? I usually shop at Dillards, Belks, Gap, Banana Republic, ect and they all have separate rooms for men and women to try clothes on in.

    I defended their choice because it is the only choice they have. In my opinion, it would be tasteless for them to use the women's dressing room if their was a male dressing room available. That of course, has nothing to do with making the value judgement of whether or not it is tasteless for men to wear women's clothes.

    I am in my own stall with my own mirror so who cares?
    Ditto. The outside dressing area is a fairly open area anyway. As long as people in there are respectful, I feel fairly comfortable.
