I've seen a thread recently which got me thinking, (called "Girly but not gay?," not sure how to link it) which was an interesting read. It had people describe their straight but feminine boy dolls, a bit about their characters and such. It made me wonder just why this hobby has such a high proportion of feminine male dolls, ranging from little things in the way they act or dress to the ones that consistently get mistaken for girls and are indistinguishable for most people outside of the hobby. I personally love the more feminine sculpts and mannerisms, I believe it was probably from my reading manga when I was younger and having the boys be much "prettier" than was ever seen in western media, and I have a feeling that others here can attest to this. I think this is a great way to show that guys can have feminine traits and not be considered gay or social outcasts. If girls can be "tomboys," then it's unfair if guys can't have a similar style. I think gender roles are just as strict if not stricter on guys in the western world, and it's really a shame. My question is, if you have/want to have dolls like this or are simply interested in this style, why do you think you are? How "girly" do you make your guys, is it your consistent taste or is it just a few characters? If you aren't, why do you think others like this style? Does it seem "wrong" to some people? I think it'd be interesting to know!
