15. I think the same arguments hold true for women and femininity.

 

If you believe that women tend toward the feminine, then it behooves individual women to internalize a personal definition of feminine that encompasses a set of positive character traits.

I think it's unhealthy for men to internalize a laundry list of negative connotations of masculinity, and in fact delegate to someone else the authority to make that definition.
