I recently came across this youtube blog which deals with sex positive videos. She's pretty awesome, and goes a great job on challenging some of my perceived ideas about sex and gender. I wish some of my friends watched this channel.
Her latest video talks about men and femininity, and I found it pretty interesting.
-What do you think of the idea of a sex positive vlog?
-Do you think there are negative connotations of being feminine?
-Do you think that masculine/feminine should stay within the male/female roles?
I think this youtube channel is great as it helps create an openness about sex, as well as dispelling a lot of rumours, and yes, I do think there is some negativity towards being feminine, especially men who behave feminine. (But even women can suffer from this - I've seen a lot of people on tumblr who seem to be hating on women who, say, like wearing make-up and dresses.) I think the whole idea of men having to be masculine and women having to be feminine is a load of bull though, firstly because it perpetuates gender roles and secondly because not everyone identifies into that binary.
I think people should act and dress in whatever way makes them comfortable, regardless of gender.
(I hope this all makes sense.)
