# from the b3ta inbox - 'Tranny Grandad' is not either...
From: KiltedHamish


Re: Your Issue No. 104: 'Photos - Tranny Grandad'

That's me, and I am honoured that you believe my photo album to be representative of some of 'the coolest stuff on the net'. Thanks to you picking it up (how did you find it, by the way?), the album has received over 2,000 hits in three days - a record!!

I do, however, have a couple of complaints which I do hope you might be able to accept, and perhaps correct:

1) I am NOT a Grandad (yet), and

2) I am most certainly NOT a 'Tranny'! I am a perfectly normal, red-blooded male of Scottish parentage, who has worn the kilt from the age of about 14 - that's over 50 years!

That kilts are extremely comfortable items of clothing for us guys, is a fact that cannot be denied and, when I took early retirement, I vowed never to wear trousers again.
In July, I returned from the USA where I had been invited to make a speaking/lecture tour for three weeks because of my reputation on the Internet and in the world of equality in men's clothing rights. Kilts are fast becoming the 'in' clothing item for men in the USA, through the advent of 'Utilikilts' which are made in Seattle. (See their website at: www.utilikilts.com and take a look at their photo galleries; you'll not see any 'trannies' anywhere there. Read their Guestbook pages too. That's a 'cool' website, if ever there was one!

I have done TV and radio interviews for the BBC, have made a short documentary for the BBC website, and I appear regularly on BBC local radio in the South of England - all because of my endeavours to get men, real men, out of their uncomfortable trousers and into kilts and masculine skirts.

There are hundreds of thousands of men around the world who are now wearing kilts and skirts as an alternative to trousers, perhaps not as frequently as I do, but they certainly have them in their wardrobes for casual and formal wear. Remember too, all the pop, rock and sporting stars who regularly wear kilts or skirts when performing.

Although there are photos in my album of me wearing short skirts, I do so only in and around my home and my neighbours' homes, because they are SO much more comfortable than shorts - especially in the hot weather!

As I say, I am not a Tranny! I have no wish to be seen as a 'female' nor to become one! I do not wear make up, or female underwear nor do I associate with men who do (as far as I know!). I am simply a bog-standard guy who appreciates the comfort (and freedom) that unbifurcated garments provide, and I do hope that you can find a way to correct the impression that you erroneously presented.

Thanks very much, and keep up the good work - your website is fascinating, even to an 'oldie' like me!

Take care,
Hamish Bicknell

# He's missing the point completely.
If you are a man, and you wear kilts or skirts, you are a transvestite. End of.

# don't generalize
kilts are a legitimate tradition in Scotland, don't disrepect it. He's not wearing bloody FLOWERY skirts or really, anything terribly feminine. If he truly was a tranny he would be at least a little feminine. And he's not. Don't be stupid.

You must create a site for all of these. They're fab.

I've had the misfortune of queuing behind him in the bank before while he was wearing one of his 'short kilts'.

The teller had tears running down her face trying not to crack up at him.

If that's not who I think it is ... there's two of the bastards! Kill it!

(although kilts are comfortable ... except in very hot weather, when worn in traditional fashion)

# I know a chap
who wore a kilt every day for the first two weeks of the 1998 World Cup and it caused him so many, eh, problems that - when he got back -he had to be circumsized.

At this juncture, I'd like to point out that I wasn't at France '98.

Rupert, the big bearded guy on season 7 of Survivor over here in NA. His jeans were chafing him, so one of the girls cut off part of her dress so he could have something more comfy to wear....
