Kaminer, “There was no general hostility toward men in Oncale’s all-male workplace; there was, it seems, hostility towards men deemed to possess insufficient machismo” (162) Now imagine switching the rolls from male to female in Kaminer’s quote and picture a lone woman on the battlefield with a group of men; it is likely at some point that the woman will have to experience this kind of discrimination. Some people will still think of women as inferior and unable to endure the tasks required of them in a battle. Women may be seen as weak, emotionally unstable, or lacking a sufficient amount of “machismo”. Clothing is an ever-growing fashion that changes its appearance every so often. Looking back over the past twenty years; fashion among women has not varied a great deal. Clothing such as jeans, t-shirts, skirts dresses, etc. have maintained their appeal to women but it has also appealed to some men.
Men seem to have taken a more drastic turn. Perhaps it is that men are becoming more in touch with their feminine side. Recently it is not uncommon for a man to be found wearing pastel colors such as purple or pink, where in the past those colors were seen as a women’s color. There are also men that like wearing women’s pants for a skin tight leg appearance; this has become a trend for some males. Taking a look into the modern family home and distinguishing the changes that have occurred in recent history would probably shock a person from 1960.
