It's quite obvious that society has a severe double standard in regard to what is dubbed masculine and feminine. But I find it interesting that people in general (I'm referring to the American public, because they're what I encounter most frequently) have begun to accept changes and modifications in what it means to be feminine yet still have issues when someone challenges masculinity. About 80 years ago, women started challenging fashion trends by wearing pants, which made many people upset. Throughout the years, there are many examples of women making strides to push themselves away from a 'traditional' perception of femininity. However, when a man attempts to rebel from 'tradition' views of masculinity, it seems he is shunned moreso than the women were. This of course has ties to homosexuality and drag performers. If a women wears a men's shirt or participates in a "manly" activity, it's ok (in most instances). When a man wears a woman's dress and participates in a "girly" activity, it's upsetting to most cultures. Would anyone like to elaborate or add a countering opinion?
