Dear equity folks,

I am looking for an answer to the following question:
Do male children (most likely of Scottish descent) in Britain who wear
kilts refer to them as skirts or kilts? This question directly relates
to a debate that recently broke out in an education class here at the
University of Vermont.
Do boys who wear them attach any significance whatsoever to the
identification of their garment as "kilts" or as "skirts?"
Do they have any preference for one term over the other?

Please help me, my reputation is riding on this!
