Why do younger guys seem to think it's okay to be effeminate?

Is a new thing with gen Z and young millenials?

EDIT:
Masculinity comes NATURALLY to most men. Which is why I am concerned about the younger generation. It takes some serious brainwashing to reprogram a normal kid to thinking he's transgender.

Is It Normal?

  • Younger generations are more accepting of LGBT. Thus, people aren’t as afraid anymore to be our of the closet as in the old days where they just hide their true selves and die miserably.

    Also, younger generations are coming to the realization that you can be masculine or feminine as you please, not because how you were raised or some rigid normatives of how a man or woman should look or act.

    Kinda mad that I put this much effort into a response to a troll question, but it’s a slow day at work so...

    • Don't he mad. There's tons of people who struggle with stuff like gender identity that end up visiting here. "Is it normal" might be one of the first things they search ffs.

      Even if this is a troll, seeing comments like this can be incredibly helpful & positive for people who are suffering with doubt. It's a good fucking comment.

    • No way buddy, this is most likely not a troll. there are lots wannabe "conservative since 2016" types out there who actually think like this OP. I doubt you can change his mind though - he'd probably find that emasculating.

  • Because it is, why you so worried about what other men do with their lives?

    your idea of masculinity does not come naturally, its socially ingrained from early childhood. it takes the same kind of "brainwashing" to turn an effeminite kid masculine.

    what's with the bait and switch - Are you whinging about effeminate men or transgenders? stick to one topic.

    Btw, your mentality is likely what's causing a lot "normal" kids to think they're trans, by enforcing such rigid gender roles.

    • Si true. Us trans folk are common but not as common as is perceived. Smot if confused kids out there. Plus being trans is popular in schools I'm told. Idk. Crazyness

  • There was like 2 gay dudes at my highschool. My nephew is in middleschool and he said theres too many gays to count and several transgenders in his school. Im not saying thats a bad thing but it does seem to be more common today.

  • Probably because it *is* okay. Masculinity isn't conforming to your expectations of it, and a man isn't "transgender" because *you* think he's effeminate. And if a person is transgender, that doesn't mean they're abnormal or have been brainwashed.

  • Not all men are masculine and some men are into looking effeminate for some reason...
