Tokyo’s hypnotic youth movement are rejecting ideas of fashion defining sexuality. We’ll learn how and why the movement came about in 2016, and meet the pioneers behind Tokyo’s most boundary pushing scene.
We meet the Tokyo youth celebrating genderless fashion. Using make-up, clothes and Instagram filters, these young people are challenging international social norms and drawing on anime's fluid beauty standards.

I once bought myself shirts from the mens section because I liked them more and literally all staff members told me how cute it was to buy clothes for my (non existing) boy friend...
People need to except genderless clothing as clothes are genderless. Society made them gender specific
the "genderless" expression is too strong it's rather the acxeption
for "tomboy and girly man
style that's not means you're
genderless if you have dick you are a man if you have pussy ur an girl got it?right...
(btw i'm tomboy tho")
If you were religious you wouldn't think this is okay this is sooo wroooong god made males and females you can't change your nature....sorry but this is just WRONG u can't imitate women when god made u a maaaan 🙌🙏
We shouldnt have created manliness like muscles n body buildups to be so obligatory that only upon the fulfilment of this condition will they be then allowed to breath. May be humiliations in all stages of life should have been eliminated so that this mixing up of genders never have to be the only choice. left. May be they are so sick of cheating and depression which is being prevailed in society as a compulsory task to be done and this is what their way out looks like. N if so it seems acceptable bcz what they were running from never was tolerateble.
Becoming more immersed in the internet and it's culture has given me names for half-formed ideas and inclinations that I thought were just my own private fancies; so THIS is what I've actually wanted since I started becoming interested in fashion.
The guy they call gross and gay, he looks like an idol 😳😍 he is super pretty and handsome imo.
Also, I dont like ro wear dresses or tight clothing. I like jeans, sneaks, tshirts and hoodies. That is what I feel comfortable and good in, I also prefer short hair as my hair is really thick and therefore gets really hot to have on my head haha, so I have a buzzcut or sometimes I will let the hair on the top of the head grow a bit longer and leave the rest as a buzzcut. I get comments that I look like a guy or I should grow my hair out, or I should wear makeup. But that just isnt me. Im not transgender, maybe a bit genderfluid tho, but I stick with the girl pronounce because I dont care what gender people see me as or treat me as. Both genders are equal and one is not better than the other. So it wouldnt make a difference for me what people call me. Im also pretty asexual, so maybe the whole gender thing just doesnt work for me as a whole. 🤷♀️. Im lucky Im born a girl, as guys gets way more shit for dressing genderless.
Wearing mens/womens clothing is one thing. I've got some womens jeans and they're generally a lot more comfortable.
It's an entirely different thing however to wear things that clearly do now belong together. You can't wear a bunch of things that clash with each other and call it fashion, that isn't how it works.
They're all so gorgeous 😍
I wish I could be as bold and find my own style, but where I live you can't actually find this kind of beautiful clothes/etc. , and I'm moreover afraid of what other people think, so...😶
As the guy said ppl in his school called him "faggot" and called him gross for wearing tight pants. Its really stupid and foolish of them to say things like that. Because these people, in my opinion, are on top of fashion and outfashion any normal fashipn trends in anyway.
And anyway, these norms are set by the older generations. If anything why should the younger generations enforce it on their fellow peers and refuse to change. Isnt it time for the younger generations to explore and create an identity for themselves and not be only known to be a shadow of the other generations?
