Sasha Fleischman is an 18-year-old man who “identifies as agender.” His skirt was set on fire by a 16-year old boy, Richard Thomas, while Fleischman slept on a bus. Thomas has been criminally charged with assault and a hate crime. Homophobic violence stems from deviating from sex stereotypes, as Sasha did when he wore a skirt. However, identifying as “neither male or female” does not make Sasha “neither male nor female.” He is actually a male who has chosen to wear skirts. We support men wearing skirts.
