Jeeze, this subject really caught on fire recently hasn't it? Sweatdrop I'm not sure what to think anymore. It probably is a cultural thing too, as Japan has the long-standing bishounen aesthetic (many Asian countries have similar ideas as well) that doesn't condemn sensitivity and femininity as being an undesirable trait in men.

I just wish people weren't so stooped up in gender roles and typecasting; it's the 21st century and to see this sort of double standard still exist is quite disheartening.
