Hey TypeC, it's been a few months since I posted. I just wanted to ask other male NF's here if they feel like they have to be more macho than they really are. I'm sure you guys all know what I'm talking about. Society assigns certain gender roles to the sexes, but those can clash with your personal preferences. I have no problem being a calm, rational thinker, but I do think that my mushy, chick-flicky side gets burried often due to these gender roles. I want you guys to tell me
a) if you have the same dilhemma (can't really answer the other questions if you don't share this same starting point)
b) does it feel natural to you to surpress this mushiness
c) if you do things purposely to keep this mushy (Fi?) side of you healthy
and if you answered yes to c, d) how do you do this?
I've just started to watch a really girly anime lately, just through a friend's recommendation and I've come to realise how I've neglected this side of me. The reality of it is that I fel comfortable in this state, but I do feel that it's been washed away a little bit by what society wants me to do (subconciously). I've ranted for long enough, your thoughts please.
