Julia Serano on femininity

At her talk on the Stanford campus tonight, Oakland writer Serano told us that “true equality won’t come until boys start embracing girl stuff, too.” “Femininity is dangerous; male pride isn’t pride, but a fear of being feminine.” As a person who hated showing my legs or wearing dresses throughout most of high school, I appreciate Serano’s words. Accepting the social stigmas attached to femininity, whatever the gender of the feminine person, only furthers the sexual objectification of women.
