they're not really the most flattering article of clothing, it makes sense there was a movement for women to wear pants not the other way around.
I know why it appears the way it does, but most people will have very limited interaction with either buisiness or the law. Because of this, most of the actual control that people experience in their day to day life will be run by women, in what you call feminine capacities. (although something like 45% of managers are women right now, so even at work people will often see women in charge directly).
Sooo the original question is why don't men wear skirts, right?
Simple. People think being female is degrading.
Maybe you don't. Good for you. Here's a cookie. You're a decent human being. But the fact is, most people would laugh and call you 'pussy' if you were a man and dressed in skirts. Saying that they wouldn't look good in it, I think, is more conditioning rather than actually believing it looks bad. I can tell you that there are lots of guys I know who would look better in skirts than some girls I know.
That seems like an awesome idea!
You want man to wear skirt? Simply have the next pop icon wear one. That will be seen as the new in thing, some trend setters will start to wear it... and before you know it you'll have a new clothing revolution.
Alternatively, start talking with a huge Scottish accent and wear a kilt. It goes very well with a broadsword. Broadsword are manly, though some people might think you are compensating for something. Then again, you would be wearing a skirt... so yeah...
