Anti-establishment, anti-patriarchy, anti-stereotype.

Face it, most people are androgynous. All women have some male in them, and vice versa. However, our culture demands and promotes the extremes. We decorate baby's nursery in pink or blue before they even come out of the womb. We socially ostracize, ridicule and humiliate effeminate boys/men and make sure our tomboys are shoved into dresses.

Why not let each person be as femme or butch as they really want to be? Let Jack feel soft and pretty when he feels like it? Let Jill drive a monster truck, or watch football with the guys instead of being expected to be in the kitchen cooking for them?
