We've reached a point in society where gender roles mean nothing.
Beauty regimes, arts and crafts, and being in touch with your feelings should have never been given the label of being "for women." Anything can be enjoyable for anyone, no matter their gender. Men no longer have to fear being called names for enjoying "feminine" things and activities.
Redditor u/DaMain-Man asked men, "What's something you enjoy thats considered 'unmasculine'?" and it started a wholesome conversation between men about their favorite products and activities that don't fit into the "manly" category.
