It is important to remember that given the “?/?” scene and the ? space, both of these settings involve different expectations and cultural scripts.
The ? population should not be constructed around physical appearance. Rather, it is about an individual’s talents, virtues and experiences that earned them a position.
However, when ?/? for a night, many agreed that we do so with the intent to get noticed. We go to a bar to possibly meet someone based on physical attraction…
Is that objectification? I do not think that only women worry about their physical appearance when ?/? either. There is a pressure for both genders to look “good”
when ?/? and that mutual pressure brings me to a point made: “When ?/?, power isn’t real for the women, it’s a failed?for men.” Always the case?
? = Office
?/? = Going out
? = Masculinity
