No that's the party line they tossed out to deal with the backlash.
If that were the truth...dontcha think we might have seen at least one woman in one?
We did, repeatedly. Troi wore it on occasion, and I remember it turning up often int he background. Most people just didn't notice because their brains didn't go "Wait what?"
Also, I support this, and you should check out my Men In Skirts for all the reasons we should have it, and why all the reasons that are going to be listed are rather pitiful. (Warning, it's a long thread.)
I don't believe they dropped it because of any backlash but more because that wasn't as much of an issue and they wanted to tackle other things more than make a point on that one. Also I can see male actors refusing to wear skirts.
