“How come when girls play with gender it’s a sign of strength but when boys play with gender it’s a sign of weakness?”
That’s because this clashes with our society’s patriarchal values, which associate femininity with weakness and inferiority.

Unfortunately, women are still NOT equals in our society and when you put down and shame men for being flamboyant, congratulations, you’re perpetuating the standard that women are still the weaker sex.
