I just love messages that tell one how Faux-Canonical something is, without telling us anything about _why_ it might be so.

Obviously unmodified women's clothing may not be the most practical of all possible choices, but I could give you a tediously long list of clothing styles that have been fought in, or easily could be, aside from 'trousers'. In this case, shorter and less full-skirted dresses would serve both the purposes I suggested, for example. (I am trying hard not to conjure up an image of Xena here though, I really am...) Perish the thought that BGers might in any way be different from in an interesting way from a Humakti, or any other male-path warrior type a female might chose, though.
