With the evolution of mentalities, I’ve noticed some strange developments in men and women’s personality. Some men have accepted the female part of their personality and exploit it, while some women go into a territory that was until now exclusively reserved to their male counterparts.
Personally, I’m quite puzzled about those changes. I don’t appreciate that much having a man who uses more beauty products than I do, and who goes more often to the beauty parlors to get waxed or their nails done. R. , a 32 year-old teacher AND heterosexual (it’s important to point that out) , is constantly preoccupied about the softeness of his skin, especially the one on his hands and on his elbows. In the morning, he spends more minutes in the bathroom than his female roommates, who often complain about this. He’s also very peculiar about the clothes he wears, so he like shopping a lot and often complains about having nothing to wear. But curiously, he must be a good lover, given the numerous ladies who are turning around him, because of what his ex(es) told them about him.
And for ladies too, some changes don’t please me that much either. Tomboys have always existed. I do admit I was a tomboy when I was a little kid, because I was hanging around too much with my cousins. But it has changed. It’s not the case for every woman like that. One of my male friend told me about one of the girl he used to date. “She was worse than a man”, he said.” She liked football matches, and whenever there was a match on the TV, she will watch it from A to Z. If I had the misfortune to interrupt her during the match, it was immediately a drama. She was also swearing a lot. I was horrified to have a lady like that” he added.
On the other hand, I find some changes positive, like for example the fact that (some) men put aside their career to take care of their kids. And also that women reach higher posts of responsibilities in their job.
