Men Dressing “Like a Woman”

Men wearing dresses

 

 

Let’s conveniently note that the woman teacher is wearing pants.

Let’s wonder if a woman wearing that dress would have “too much cleavage.”

Let’s question if a guy can even have cleavage.

Let’s now picture him wearing a loose jersey that I’ve seen much too often for my own preferences. I’ve seen guys walking around schools in those and they never got escorted out.

My favorite picture is him on the right, by the way. I just love the way he frolics.

    Have you read any books by Jessica Valenti? She discusses our society’s fear and hatred for anything feminine. Many of the words we use to insult others are feminine — “bitch,” “pussy,” “cunt,” “whiny, little girl,” etc. It’s really frightening that our society equates being a woman with being weak and cowardly, yet saying someone “has balls” means s/he is courageous, which in reality makes no sense. As Betty White said, “Balls are weak and sensitive. If you want to be tough, grow a vagina. Those things can take a pounding.” The man in the photos is Iggy Pop from the Stooges. He’s a pretty scholastic guy; I wish all musicians were as progressive as he is.

    • Yes! I have read Jessica Valenti! I have Full Frontal Feminism in my room right now. I loved that book. That was basically the start of my journey into feminism and gender studies. And I totally love that Betty White quote. I love her, she is so awesome, and she’s right! Kick a guy in the balls and kick a girl in the crotch and lets see who walks it off the quickest.
      And you are right about the insults. The worst thing you can call a girl is a bitch, and the worst thing you can call a guy is a bitch. It’s the same with clothes. It’s okay for a girl to dress like a tomboy (because she’s trying to be like a guy, sh’e trying to take more power, and that’s impressive), however, if a guy dresses or acts more like a girl, he’s a sissy and that’s bad (because he’s giving up power to be a girl and that’s weak and pathetic.) And as I type this out, it occurs to me that our society seems to have a love affair with power. We don’t want to be kind, or friendly, we want to be powerful.
