I'm new to this community and have just recently discovered my love of Krishna amongst other Gods...
It may be menial, but it is bothersome to me none the less.
O.K., so I have the tendency to dress in a more masculine way, and being a female bi-sexual in a small town in the "bible belt" of america, it has caused me many problems with the "colorful" locals.
And since I have enough problems "offending" people who expect me to look a certain way, I really don't want to offend others that might take offense to something that is a cultural taboo that I was unaware of.
I assumed that this would be the most open minded and unjudgmental community to post this to, so here it is-
Is it considered a cultural no-no for women to wear Dhotis? Because I typically only see men wearing them, and the websites I visited looking to purchase one said that it is considered "the traditional Indian clothing of men".
I would really like to own one to wear when I practice yoga and do mantras, any advise? Or am I just being overly cautious?
