#LookOfTheWeek : For some members of the transgender community and feminists, my genderqueer campaign and messages are to ego driven, too shallow and too much about outfits. A skirt is just a skirt! For others however, my clothing is reason enough to stop contact with me. What? I thought a skirt was just a skirt? Or not?
Is it possible that people have a problem with me because they can't be able to classify me? Is it the envy that I can live easily between the genders without having to hide? Or is it fear that I could also act "different", gay, or like a woman?
I can put these minds at ease: Thanks to judo, taekwondo and martial arts, I can – lets write it in typical male language – kick asses even in makeup and skirts.

I should never compare myself to "pretty women" because I am not attractive, just a man with curves, who finally has to accept that man and woman have different opportunities and rights. "Sex sells", so I'm supposed to shut my mouth, because the Brasilian rainforest is burning.
Initiation was a post about a female colleague who also does social media marketing, movies and rides mountainbikes. She shows herself on raves in sexy lingerie, publicly states that she likes drugs and loves ONS, but her conservative customers believe in her integrity and professionality, while many are even irked by my gender photoshoots.
Morals and principles are values that cannot be used at will. They either apply to anyone, or to nonone. And if people weren't looking for comparison, there would be no development, no progress and no change. If women in the 1950's didn't compare themselves with men, they still wouldn't be allowed to wear pants or to study at universities.

When I write about how happy I am and how fulfilled my life is, countless trans people call me arrogant and ruthless. If I report about problems my modus vivendi brings along, I would be negative, depressive and should work on my attitude.
Posts in which I look at the world critically, get twice as many likes than those in which I write about professional or private successes. Fans from the LGBT+ Community don't want to read about new contracts, advertising deals, clothes by cult brands and that I'm perceived as a woman.
After the first week of my #MonthOfSkirts case study, I can't report anything bad. I had some great days, wore cool outfits, in which I felt really good and till now I got exclusively positive feedback. Let's see what's happing next - the month is still long.

Facebook has been reducing the organic reach of my gender photo campaign for months and is consistently rejecting my promotions in the first instance. The support team claims that my posts would be political and canvassing advertising and my topics of national relecance.
They demand that I authorize my page for such content, which would bring significant disadvantages, such as increased highlighting costs, invisibility in other countries, and a "funded by" disclaimer included in all postings.
According to Facebook, my posts are regularly reported by people who feel disturbed by my messages, which can only be fixed with several protests and hours of discussions. This not only takes a lot of time, but also unnecessary energy and motivation.
Instead of a new story and new pics, there's just a best-of from my previous shoots, with previously unreleased photos. Enjoy!
Men mock that you wouldn't be a real male. Women arrogate that you‘ll never be a true female and transsexuals demand that you choose one side, because there's no such thing as non-binary people. At the airport, the doctor, even at the lottery and at public toilets, everywhere they want to know which sex you are.
In times of gender equality and equal treatment, this should be completely pointless. In addition, it's of no concern what you have in your pants, or in the ID.
Do these indoctrinations about what you are, what you not are and how to be, stop, if you can legally prove it in black and white? Or would this make it even worse? 🤔
I would like to thank everyone who has liked, shared and commented on my gender campaign so far. The positive feedback on my photos and texts make me very happy and helps me to continue despite headwind and negative consequences.
Unfortunately, there are also people who leave nothing undone to silence me. They report my posts, they doubt any positive reaction, they laugh at me, they call me freak, sick son of a bitch, gender-confused anomaly, they attack me and my family and even threaten to kill me.
I can't empathize with this hate and aggression. Why don't they just let people be the way they are? No one has the right to intervene in the body, sexuality and clothes of others. I'm not going to stop fighting for equality and freedom, because I'm the one who's wearing the pants here. 😉

Sometimes I feel like in The Matrix. As the only person who took the red pill. People live in their constructed microcosm, no one questions the system. How can it be that so many feel comfortable in their sereotypic roles of the sexes?
I'm often asked how my wife gets along with me wearing makeup and female clothes? Why am I never asked how I deal with her being blunt, wearing pants and flat shoes?
And then all the folks with their pseudo-liberal arguments: Off course man can wear skirts and dresses, but he shouldn't be surprised when he's being laughed at and offended. Why? Morpheus, get me out of here!

Encouraged by a lot Christian conviction I'm exclaiming the October to the #MonthOfSkirts , a personal case study, for which I will wear a skirt every single day. Lets see if this really makes me more willing to compromise, more tender, more affectionate and flirtatious, as so many women profess.
And God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
The almighty has made a mistake with me, because I have always been different. Already in kindergarten I was more one of the girls, almost had only friends. In Puberty, I fell into a deep hole due to my physical change. I saw all the beautiful women who developed to what they should become. Only my cocoon was the wrong one, but at some point I learned to accept my manhood.
This play went on for a few years, although my genes and hormones always showed that I was not a "normal" man. My estrogen receptors strongly refused to be destroyed by testosterone and showed this in a female fat-distribution, body hair and visible curves. I still forced myself into male clothes and tried to hide my curves in the best possible way.
Now I'm free, happy and in peace with me. I live the way I am and this has neither to do with transsexuality, nor with transvestism or intersexuality. I may be genetic and hormonal a female being, but I'm not a woman, because I can't get pregnant, I have no period and can't experience a female orgasm. Male Puberty can't be undone, but I come to terms by not suppress it, but making it a part of my femininity.
Jesus said he is one with God and the Holy Spirit. Anyone who believes in the trinity should have no problem with a born man who has a female soul.

Just because I have curves, I wear skirts and dresses, it doesn't mean that I only think about fashion the whole day and that I can't use tools. I know how tho use makeup and nail polish, but I can also defend myself with Judo, Taekwondo and MMA.
There are currently many posts on Facebook where men who have long hair, who do not wear a suit, or shave their legs, are being stultified and lambasted. What an irony that many of the most extreme female critics who wish themselves back to the good old times, wear short hair, pants and flat shoes.
Who determines what a man looks like? Every person has the right to live, to love, to dress and to use cosmetics as he/she wants. The one, who throws the first stone, just because people like me don't match the typical image of a man, should rather remove the skeletons in his closet and stand for his suppressed aspirations. We only have one life.
