Gender roles have largely been broken for our generation. I don't relaly think many people are in touch with what it means to be masculine or feminine. A lot of people try and find identity by trying to fit a stereotype of what a man or woman is. But this is quite different.

^ this sounds confusing. I'll try give an example. Guys are now much more into going to the gym, body building, getting tattoos etc to display their masculinity. But although being buff is a male thing, focusing so much energy on your physical appearance is a feminine concept. It's a result of young women earning as much or more than a lot of young boys, and no longer judging their status on their wealth, but other things including appearance.
