Is there anyone that can actually do this?
Maybe I’m broken, but I can’t seem to manage this if its an “exclusively feminine pose”…
I’m a really thin woman, but I can’t do this. However, I know many people who can, both men and women, and many men and women who can’t. The thing is it’s not a gendered thing, it’s an individual people thing. Christopher Hart falls into the trap of thinking that just because we see (in society & in the media) women more often in certain poses, therefore it must be something women can do, and not men. In the comments somebody notes that they know men who can do it, and Hart says they must be in traction, because of course, men can’t do a “feminine” pose. e_e
I remember back in high school, I had male friends who insisted that sitting simply cross legged was something only women could do. Simply because it’s considered more of a “feminine” way of sitting in our society, they assumed it must be a physical limitation.
