Is Pop Culture Redefining Girls And Boys?
Have you ever pondered about what makes a woman a woman or what makes a man a man? Do we define ourselves and others by choice of wardrobe, mannerisms and things like make-up, aggressive behavior and skinny jeans?
Lately, in mainstream media and in pop-culture, we’ve seen more and more men wearing things that you would traditionally see a woman wear. We’ve heard, read and watched both women and men do things, say things and embrace things that weren’t traditionally acceptable.
Are these recent reflections in alignment with sexuality or can someone change their appearance and not be determined as a homosexual, lesbian or bi-sexual?
If one is living an alternative lifestyle, is the Sly Fox and his influential tools to promote non-traditional lifestyles a way to inform the world on how to accept different types of sexual approaches, or is it a way to force it?
Who do these types of images and messages reflect and influence the most? Are these memos projected to a particular demographic?
Are clothes just clothes, music just music or do these various forms of media heavily influence what’s “hot or not” or acceptable behavior? Is the idea of unisex jeans and the elimination of gender roles automatically aligned with sexuality?
Remember that our culture is shaped by us. You have the right to evaluate, analyze and change the game. Don’t be afraid to think.
With that, let me know something: has pop-culture simply gone too far? Or am I coming too soon? Think about it, because I am.
