It can be a burden to be called gay when you’re actually straight and nobody believes you.
Why do straight men get insanely defensive over their sexuality?
My shorts and skate shoes do not make me any less female than a woman in her sundress and sandals. I no longer feel out of place when I go to work without a face full of make up. But by the same token I no longer feel outrageously self conscious when I do put make up on.
We’re so caught up in this idea that we have to protect our independence, that we’ve quelled our traditional instincts, because we no longer think we’re allowed to have them. (Unless you genuinely don’t have those traditional instincts, which is totally fine too.)
When did the word “feminist” turn into a divisive ploy to turn females against one another?
But when it comes to society’s view of the female body, the lines of femininity and athleticism become, in my opinion, blurred.
Are there any seven words more terrifying than the dreaded “can you hold him for a second?”
