With how strict gender roles are in our society...
As a guy, if you think more like a girl, you have two choices - pretend to think like a guy and develop issues, or think like a girl and get yelled
As a guy who is interested in girls at the same time, because he isn't gay, that can cause problems, because of our dating culture being set up under
the false assumption that there should be rigid rules based on body parts instead of gender perspective.
It's not like there is necessarily a healthy environment to develop the social skills needed to court someone of the opposite sex but of the wrong yin
. yang polarity.
Of course, these are just my thoughts on the issue. As for me personally, it could apply to me, but it also might not, I mean I've switched between
heavily conservative and heavily liberal cultures so many times, and the gender roles are kinda different in them overall, and I've had awesome gay
friends, tran friends, straight friends, some friends in the closet,
I haven't been looking for years.
I even have a Mormon gay friend who is engaged to a girl whom I think is a lesbian, and they promote gay advocacy in the church.
Also, I might end up coming off as bigoted or something even though I am talking about this in a positive manner, so see? Who knows what my experience
is. Obviously confusing, although I mean, honestly, who isn't at least a bit confused?
