It’s Friday and the Question is….


I have been thinking a lot about gender performance recently and the way in which we do certain behaviours to be understood as male or female.  There are things that we do unconsciously every day-- for instance women cross their legs when they sit.  There are behaviours/actions that we consider to be chores and would drop them if we thought that we wouldn’t have to put with other people’s snark.  So, the question this week is: what gender based behaviour (eg. shaving your legs), would you quit doing if the social pressure were to suddenly disappear? Let your inner bohemian hang out in the comment section.
