Masculinity is hard to define-- it's abstract and intangible. It's something that we, as individuals, experience on a very personal level and it can mean something different to each person. For me, masculinity represents my inner self. It's the part of me that I want people to use as a cue on how to read and interact with me. It's not better, stronger, tougher or more valid than femininity, but it's how I relate to myself and the world, and it's how I want people to see me.
