Men Share Things They Like To Do That Society Deems As "Feminine" or "Unmasculine"
Pumpkin Spice Lattes
On Sunday morning, I met some guy friends for breakfast. We talked about all the stuff that we did the night before. It was a pretty crude conversation for the most part. At the end of the meal, I said how I wanted to get a pumpkin spice latte. As we stood up, we noticed some girl at the end of our table. She had this totally confused look on her face. Apparently, she had been listening to our whole time and couldn't process the contrast from our stereotypical weekend morning "Bro Conversation" to "Yeah, I could really go for a pumpkin spice latte right now."
I love going to Lush and looking at all the colors and smelling all the smells. If I'm feeling really adventurous, I'll even buy one that's slightly sparkly and hope that no one will see the sparkles on me.
I exclusively play as female characters in video games. I like being a strong female character. I'm not pretending to be a woman. I just like watching a boss lady do boss things.
I've also been put down for making sympathetic noises about the challenges faced by women and minorities. Apparently, having human empathy is unmasculine.
I buy myself flowers.
I'm old enough now where I no longer keep things a secret for fear of seeming less tough. However, in my late teens/early twenties, I got into ballet and started taking adult beginner classes and managed to keep it secret from my tough guy hooligan friends for 6 months before they found out and ridiculed me until I got embarrassed and quit. One of the biggest regrets of my life is not sticking with it. If I had I would've been involved for 10+ years, and a reasonable dancer by now.
I love doing a facial cleanse with toner and moisturize. It makes your face feel awesome!
Being The Little Spoon
I'm 6'5 and my girlfriend is 5'2. I'm the small spoon unless we are laying on our sides.
Anime Love Stories
I definitely enjoy watching romance animes.
Classic Pop Songs
I love the song "I am beautiful" by Christina Aguilera, and I sing it like a school girl every single time I hear it.
It started out as a way for me to delay my arthritis for as long as possible, but it just became so damn relaxing. The patterns are puzzles that I have to figure out, and I've always enjoyed making things. Living in New England, I could always use more scarves (especially since my wife steals them).
Manicures and Pedicures
Obviously, with no nail polish. My hands and feet are usually a horrendous pile of dead skin and callouses from working out and going to work. It makes me feel a little better about people seeing them. They don't always get all of them (the callouses and dead skin), but it definitely makes them look a little bit closer to normal.
Acknowledging The Nipple
Receiving nipple stimulation.
_The Bold and the Beautiful _I've been watching it since I was about 5 years old. I DVR the show and watch it with my wife and kids during dinner.
I just took a Zumba class, and it was dope.
I like crossdressing, and my girlfriend doesn't know about it.
All That Good Stuff
I like cooking, watching HGTV, cleaning my house, and buying scented candles.
Leggings and Tights
The greatest feeling EVER is running your hands over smooth legs. If those legs happens to be your own, well then I guess you got to do what you got to do! It may take a long time, but it is so worth it.
Girly fruity cocktails. Sorry, but beer is bitter and gross.
I cry when watching the movie Wall-E. I'm usually drunk, but I find that robot love touching.
Hair Care Products
Woman's shampoo. It's just better.
Sipping on some chamomile tea before bed.
Peeing while sitting down.
Gilmore Girls is a beautiful TV show.

Breaking up is hard to do.
And when you get the law involved, it's even worse. But sometimes people don't need the law's help to make things overcomplicated, they just have a grand ole time making that happen themselves.
People on the front lines of human cruelty include divorce lawyers. These are their stories.
