Mary Brigid at Nousfromspring has posted two entries on the meaning of gender. Her thoughts were prompted by a commercial she saw on TV. She poses the following questions:
What does it mean to be a man? To be a woman, for that matter? Why does gender matter? Does it matter???
Those first thoughts have spun off into a post on dress, which prompted this question:
Especially I would ask the men: Do you think that pants are a masculine mode of dress, can they be neutral, or can they be feminine?
May I direct you, dear gentle reader, to hop on over to Nousfromspring and toss your two cents into the pile of collected thoughts.
