    Question What is Masculinity/Femininity?

    What is masculinity? What is femininity?

    What is natural masculinity/femininity and how is it different from social masculinity/femininity?

    Do the social notions of masculinity and femininity (social masculinity and social femininity) harm men/women?

    Tired Re: What is masculinity/femininity?

    Okay, I hope this doesn't somehow offend because its not too Germanic! LOL Actually, its an ancient Chinese teaching, but nevertheless, this is my understanding of feminine/masculine.... ....

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yin_Yang

    I don't know if there is a similar philosophy from ancient Europe??

    Natural masculinity is a tendency to take charge but ability to lead is what society thinks is an ideal masculine trait. There are many masculine, normal men who are not fit to be leaders. Males who are not naturally masculine (queer or homosexuals), or normal but young inexperienced men don't like to take charge as much (and even then the normal ones tend to be at least sexually dominant). This is why I classify it as a solely masculine trait.

    Natural feminine tendencies are maternal emotions, attention to detail, and sociableness. All normal, heterosexual women have maternal emotions but they are NOT all nurturing, that's a logical fallacy. However, non-inborn psycho-cultural traits COMMON to women are need for attention, submissiveness, nurturing (socially ideal), fear, pickiness, emotional sensitivity etc.

    Are "need for attention, submissiveness, nurturing (socially ideal), fear, pickiness, emotional sensitivity " really non inborn ?
    Aren't those traits generally latet in feminine women ?
