The ideal male is fully autonomous- financially, physically, and especially emotionally.  He must be capable of standing alone, and he must struggle and even fight to protect what is his- property, reputation, and family.  He must never reveal his vulnerability, and he must eschew all things feminine, including personality traits that are associated with femininity.    -Men & Masculinities (under "Androgyny")

...at least the last part doesn't describe me?     >_>   Even when trying to avoid being too masculine I still manage to.   *headsmack* Not sure how to feel about this.

Bah. What's a man or what's a woman? Even when I'll be 80 I'll still not be able to tell the difference.

Just be you Ry! :-D

It's just annoying. I hate gender roles and want to find out how to mess with as many of them as I can over my life. I can't do that being all masculine. D: heh, that sounds really funny to me. XD
