Yeah, I'm wearing some right now. lol When I was younger I hated wearing them to school though, because most of the ones I had were hand-me-downs came up above my knees when I sat down, so kids would laugh and told everyone I liked to wear daisy dukes. Super embarrassing, so I didn't wear them to school again until my senior year of high school.
Then after that, I was in a church for a long time where some people were against guys wearing shorts, and women were supposed to wear skirts or dresses only. But our pastor said if women could wear skirts below their knee, then men should be able to wear shorts to the same length. But I mainly only wore them for playing sports then.
Now though, I'm comfortable wearing them again. Mostly I wear ones that come below the knee, but I have a few pairs that are slightly above, which I think is the popular look these days. I still won't wear denim shorts because they remind me of those daisy dukes of yore. I only wear shorts in solids or plaids, or else I wear board shorts.
My legs are rather pale as well which I don't get because most weekends I go out in the sun with shorts on. They are also quite hairy which I think is masculine as a guy but my hair isn't very dark so it doesn't really stand out.
Underneath the cold November sky, I wait for you... As the pages of my life roll by, I wait for you... I'm so desperate just to see your face, meet me in this broken place...
Be a little brave for a little bit of time.
