What About 'No Masc?' The 'No Fems' Debate Flipped On Its Lid.
We've touched on the use of the 'No Fems' phrase, fem shaming, desiring a masculine mate, etc., ("No Fats, No Fems" Shirt - "We're Sexist, Racist And Discriminatory AF." Really??). The debate has been boiled down to who cares, it's disrespectful, they're assholes, let then choose who they want, and can't we all just get along? It usually never ends well with the majority of people stating that gay men that use 'No Fems' are douchebags.
But what if the script was flipped? What if the phrase was 'No Masc?' How would the debate go then? We would of course have the people in the kumbaya korner singing that we should all just get along. But would the debate be as voracious against the 'No Masc' users?
Justin Sayre may be attracted to men, but that doesn’t mean he’s a fan of “masculinity,” at least in the stereotypical sense.
In his new video for HuffPost Queer Voices, the sassy writer-performer opens up about that irony ― and it’s a hoot.
“My therapist and I discovered that I don’t like men. I just don’t like them,” he quips in the clip, which can be viewed above. “Masculinity, to me, not only is an affront, but it’s an abuse.” - Huffingtonpost.com
Justin Sayre doesn't come out and use the term 'No Masc' but he clearly has a preference. Here's a quick clip from one of his times at the mic.
Chairman Sayre takes on aggressive masculinity and the risks of "Frat Boy Gangbang." This segment is from the September 18, 2016 edition.
Sayre presides over the board of the International Order of Sodomites, hosts The Meeting* every month and educates the membership on the latest in political news and social trends. - youtube.com
I did a blog a while ago entitled Is It Okay To Be Uncomfortable Around Fem Guys? Yes, And Here’s Why. The responses were all over the board, but I was personally called "twat waffle" and a "douche canoe" among other names for voicing my opinion. Would it be okay to use the same names for someone who does not desire to be around masculine men?
What are your thoughts Instincters?
Does it work the same way?
