Masculinity Vs femininity

Lets start this article by labelling things, 

As per wikipedia (open source peer edits, 70-80% accuracy, conventional opinion)

Feminine: Femininity (also called womanliness or girlishness) is a set of attributes, behaviors, and roles generally associated with women and girls. Although femininity is largely thought to be socially constructed,[1] research indicates that some behaviors considered feminine are biologically influenced.[1][2][3][4] To what extent femininity is biologically or socially influenced is subject to debate.[2][3][4] It is distinct from the definition of the biological female sex,[5][6] as both males and females can exhibit feminine traits. Traits traditionally cited as feminine include gracefulness, gentleness, empathy, humility, and sensitivity,[7][8][9][10] though traits associated with femininity vary across societies and individuals,[11] and are influenced by a variety of social and cultural factors.[12]

Masculine:  Masculinity (also called manhood or manliness) is a set of attributes, behaviors, and roles associated with men and boys. Although masculinity is largely thought to be socially constructed,[1] research indicates that some behaviors considered masculine are biologically influenced.[1][2][3][4] To what extent masculinity is biologically or socially influenced is subject to debate.[2][3][4] It is distinct from the definition of the biological male sex,[5][6] as both males and females can exhibit masculine traits.[7]Standards of manliness or masculinity vary across different cultures and historical periods.[8] Traits traditionally viewed as masculine in Western society include strength, courage, independence, leadership, and assertiveness.[9][10][11][12]

These definitions represent, what our human race thinks about these topics. Now before we dive in, let us take a look at this video:

 

Few words about the video, entirely off topic:

best point: Her hitting style

worst point: his inability to dodge

It would have been  more interesting to watch, if he dodged her slaps.

 

headline of the tweet immediately tells us whom to perceive as a victim. Similar to this, there are cases where the roles are reversed.  Our society (on line  and offline) decides  these victims and action is taken against the bully after investigation. 

Now let us try to look at the video assuming both of them to be 2 animals and analyse them on the basis of their actions. A typical case of role reversal. Male person displays feminine traits and female displays masculine traits. We can all agree that, in this situation there is no biological influence effecting their nature.

Only thing left is sociological influence assuming both of them are psychologically ok.

Lets start by adding the population, people surrounding the area have caused a significant impact on the way both of them reacted. 

Then lets add the age factor: both genders were young. situation would have been different if the man was old or if the woman was old.

Next comes the location, India reports a high number of crimes against women every year. They have strict laws against those who commit these crimes. As there is no counter to these laws, people also misuse them to get what they want. 

next comes the mindset, As per the global definition on wikipedia , women are always associated with humility, gentleness and sensitivity unlike a male who is strong and assertive.

so in this situation, the boy resists his masculine traits fearing the local laws and a huge pro woman crowd which enables the woman to unleash her masculine traits.

Indian Pro women crowd: If india had a pro woman crowd mostly consisting of men. Why are there so many cases against them? Are men aware of the laws which aren’t in favour them?  Or they don’t even care?

Substitution: If we reverse the gender, would the situation escalate in a similar manner? if one person was related to other would the situation be same? 

this was the point at which I decided  to wrap up this article.  

but,

On my way to office, I saw a mother shouting at her child for crossing the road carelessly. She bet him. he tried to dodge, she missed. He gave her a hug. she smiled.

 I applied it here 😉

1.Masculine and feminine traits don’t define a gender, they represent a persons response based on the situation they are in.

2. even better, if we can completely eliminate these labels and let people free.

3.humans are violent in nature, it’s advisable to equip your children how to dodge or escape when in danger.

4. Be aware of  (section 498A) . It is often misused. 

5. Feminists and MRAs are doing the same thing. Even though only one group gets media coverage.
