it inspires him and "makes me feel like Bo Derek running on the beach in 10."

Oh you poor, poor beard.

Funny how the wife's first reaction is to try to change him.  You know, like a pet that needs to the scolded.

If it's just a fetish then, meh, people do all sorts of weird shiat.

Do you love him? Does what he wears when he jams on the treadmill matter more than how much you love him? simple math. Smartass aside, talk it out and act like adults. My wife has worn a dress less than a dozen times in a decade. The fact that she wears t-shirts and jeans or a button up blouse and slacks doesn't offend me. So what if I decided to wear very form fitting spandexy type clothes to admire myself while I run on the treadmill. I could just say screw it and run naked I suppose.... Make sure he doesn't want to have a sex change (that can be alot for a couple to handle) and tell him his ass looks nice in his spandex.

What if the husband just got busted for having an affair with someone he works out with, and came up with this incredibly stupid story?

I tell ya what she needs to do: Open her closed-ass mind! Her husband likes to wear women's clothing...so farking what?!  Let him do his thing! If that's what makes him happy, LET HIM DO IT and LEAVE HIM THE HELL ALONE ABOUT IT. Better yet, perhaps you can HELP him choose the RIGHT things to wear for his size. I thought marriage was about being supportive. Sounds to me this biatch isn't holding up her end of the deal.

For once, I agree with Prudie. If he is wearing those clothes for the extra support, it'd be strange, but understandable. That he wears them so he can feel like Bo Derek is really weird. It'll be a slippery slope if she just lets it go.

WhippingBoy: PsiChick: Erm, what the fark is the problem here? Sure, it's kind of a WTF moment, but if the guy likes women's clothes...so? Yeah, ask him if he's trans, but what, are we worried he'll suddenly  make himself trans or something?

And yes, I know that's the fear here. I'm pretending people aren't  farking stupid.

What the Fark are you talking about???

What, exactly, does this woman have to be worried about? She keeps talking about a 'slippery slope'. To what? He's wearing women's clothes, so...he's wearing women's clothes. That's it.

Now, this worry makes sense if you're stupid enough to think that wearing women's clothes is a 'slippery slope' to becoming trans, but that's the only way it matters. I mean, hell, I wear guy clothes because I grabbed some that were on sale. Is that a 'slippery slope' to anything? No, because they're pieces of cloth. I've still got a vagina, and this guy's still got a dick. World ain't ending.

I think the seriousness of this depends wholly on how much sarcasm was in that "Bo Derek" line...

I don't get the problem here.

Women can throw on a guy's t-shirt and jeans, and nobody says a word about it. They can grab their husband's oxford shirt and a pair of his sweats and run to the grocery store wearing that ensemble, and nobody calls her a cross-dresser or questions her sexual orientation.

But the minute a man puts on a pair of women's PANTS-- not even a skirt in this situation, but PANTS-- people are all "ooh, he must be a f♣g!" and "what a perv!"

The double-standard is ridiculous. It's even worse when you consider that it used to work the other way around, back in the days when a woman wearing pants was scandalous. Now, it seems women get ALL the choices when it comes to clothes, while men continue to be stuck with the same outfits.

And if you go back far enough, it was the men who were allowed to dress in frills, lace, makeup, wigs, and other such things.

Our ideas about fashion and gender are so screwed-up these days. So the guy likes wearing women's gym clothes. Who cares? Does he still like f♥cking his wife? Then SHUT UP.

Are woman really that stupid? Lots of men workout wearing tight womans clothes. The clothes fit to the contours of the body better and show off muscles far better then a sagging loose shirt.

Thats it, its that simple. He likes to look at his body while working out.

Shhhh. Don't blow it for the rest of us.

"Of course I wear women's clothing when I work out at the gym. What other explanation could there possible be for that sports bra in my gym bag?"

If he likes some support (a real concern), give the guy some UnderArmour compression garments for his birthday or Xmas.  They make some pretty good, overpriced stuff.  If he just straight up likes womens clothing, you're just going to have to have a talk with yourself and figure out if you're OK with it.  It isn't the worst thing ever, but I see where it could get weird.

Prank Call of Cthulhu: What's her Fark username? I'm recalling a thread a month or so ago, where some Farkette told a story about her obviously gay boyfriend letting a dude jerk off onto his pants on an airplane.

As I recall, she said her boyfriend was just polite.

Meh, it's weird but I don't see the problem.  She should really be worried about all the guys he's blowing in the locker room.

That, or he just figured out a way to get dirty women's gym clothes without having to steal them.

"Hey man, when did you start wearing bras?"
"The day my wife found my girlfriend's bra in the glove compartment!"

/Nah. He likes to feel like Bo Derek. He kinda gay.

Hey, if he has sufficient moobage, it may be necessary.

WhippingBoy: I'd rather see a guy in yoga pants than a fat chick in yoga pants.

ladies:  please quit going to the grocery store / library / whatever immediately post-workout, in your yoga pants with your sweaty asshole hanging out for the whole damn world to see.  it is disgusting and nasty and just foul.

go home and get cleaned up before you start flaunting your sweaty damn asshole all over town.
