Good, wearing a skirt should not "turn you into a girl"
Bad, it is appropriation of female traditions
Good (other)

I know a man (cis and straight, he never had any doubts about his gender and orientation) that owns several skirts. He often wears them around the house - because it's comfy and stylish, not because of some weird fetish. The skirts were sewn to his measure from a fabric he chose.

He now plans to start wearing them outside the house, i.e in public. Is it a good thing from a feminist point of view in your opinion?

I want to say, "good, wear whatever you want you're still man", but knowing what I know about men, I would be extremely skeptical that any men were dressing that way without it being related ot a fetish, and that would mean they were violating the consent of everyone they come into contact with by forcing them to view their fetish. I just don't think the current crop of males are capable of divorcing things they associate with women from the non-stop rape on tape they're mainlining. If it weren't for that, and a skirt was really just a skirt, then I wouldn't give a crap.

I'd also like to say that a man will look unremarkable (good, neutral, whatever) in a skirt cut for a man, but when men try to wear actual women's clothes, they almost always look like shit, and it's uncomfortable to look at even if I don't know what their motivations are. It goes beyond being poorly dressed.
