Were you made to wear tights/pantyhose as a boy?

As a young teenager, I was a page-boy for my cousin. My aunt made me wear a quite sissified outfit of lilac satin tunic and tights. I made a poll asking if any one else was dressed in a sissyish style when they were a pageboy, and I was surprised by the amount of replies. For me, one of the worst parts of the outfit was that I had to wear tights; I found it rather emasculating and humiliating. I was surprised to find that a large number of respondants were also dressed in tights (or pantyhose as our American cousins say); over 70%! So I thought I would create another poll on this subject. This poll is not for those who wore tights for their own pleasure , it is for those who were made to wear tights and had little or no choice in the matter.
