sexualization of a cultural piece.

I think that kilt ship might have sailed with the Catholic Girls School skirt and related sexual fantasies.

The Scottish men I know KNOW we find their kilts sexy and enjoy it to an extent. As long as no one is looking under. And they’re all totally used to being asked what’s under it. Then they get asked what Clan it is and most of them say “eh, the Victorians made that up, I picked one I liked”
