We've reached a point in society where gender roles mean nothing.


Beauty regimes, arts and crafts, and being in touch with your feelings should have never been given the label of being "for women." Anything can be enjoyable for anyone, no matter their gender. Men no longer have to fear being called names for enjoying "feminine" things and activities.

Redditor u/DaMain-Man asked men,

"What's something you enjoy thats considered 'unmasculine'?"

It started a wholesome conversation between men about their favorite products and activities that don't fit into the "manly" category.

When looking at a resume, it's easy to understand how prospective employers will assume someone is very intelligent based on their education and past experience.

But one shouldn't only assume someone's intelligence based on what they read.

With each passing year of a marriage, couples will often discover that while they don't love each other any less than they once did, that spark their relationship used to carry has faded.
