I don't think it's "gender bias" to notice that men and women can both look good in men's clothes (not all examples but many) while unless it's a costume/drag situation or some such, men look absurd in women's clothes. How about the gender bias in fashion design?

they look ok when they're just standing there at a distance, but good lord try finding anything in the men's section that has fit and function for anything but a standard man.

you're right tho, there is a stark difference in terms of common general looks for men vs women

gingerbeer and I have a rule about leaving the house when we're wearing matching outfits (most commonly, a hoodie, jeans, boots), but it's not a rule we follow terribly stringently. It's mostly just an effort to try not to be a matchy-matchy dyke couple.

The fact that I am much much bigger than most women is definitely gender bias. As is the fact that I eat more chili in one sitting than most women could in a week.

Most of the women here look perfectly fine in men's clothing but the opposite is rarely true.
