Violating Gender Norms

We are taught to live by the norms for our gender, but when these norms are too rigid and contradict the truth of our being, we can and should violate them. We need not be afraid to be strong, but also nurturing, reflective, but also caring, resilient, but also open to the beauty of the universe. Our culture hands us a script for manhood and womanhood, but we are free to revise its lines.
