Recently I’ve been reading random things about perceptions of masculinity and femininity through the eyes of women. Thought this one was a bit funny when I read it. I have noticed often that when I tell people I prefer cats and have pet cats that I live alone with and frequently post pictures of that sometimes it just seems weird but they are not sure why. I’ve also have randomly heard men , and sometimes women, mention men with cats as opposed to dogs in a negative light.
Reading through this post, their concept of masculinity was funny. It’s amusing that most of the women perceived men posting with their cats as more feminine, and that femininity within men is often confused for homosexuality.
I’ve noticed the same thing with flowers. Often if you really like flowers, and talk about how pretty they are and ect… sometimes people will act as if it’s weird. Especially if they realize afterwards that you don’t know anything about cars and boats. Almost 50% of the time when I’m talking about flowers, a guy will follow up with they are more into cars or boats.
