It occurs to me just how significant it is that we live in a culture and society where femininity is weaknesses. Femininity is emotional, but emotion is not strength. Even I grew up extremely uncomfortable with my femininity and femininity in general. I still struggle to embrace it as a strength and to be strong in my befriending of other women in life. Women and femininity make me uncomfortable. Perhaps it is how it has been portrayed by our culture. Perceived weakness is uncomfortable. This is such a serious issue and truly sad.
