What is truly feminine / masculine?

What is truly feminine / masculine?

One of my best friends, @claysanders_art told me about his friend who did research at @dukeuniversity on gender studies about how having a large truck, loud bike, eating a lot of meat and doing other stereotypically masculine things actually characterises males who struggle with their masculinity. So they constantly are trying to "prove /boost" it. People who are confident of their masculinity recycle, wear shirts of any colour (including pink, shocker!) , aren't afraid withhold from alcohol in social gatherings, eat plant based of they want to and are less subject to gender stigma.I've been thinking a lot about this...

Snacks and liquid calories count too (coffee with creamer, wine, etc).

How to save 50% on your groceries?

How to save 50% on your groceries?

I've noticed over the past few years that even though I've been buying higher quality food, my bills have been lower... Why is that? 1. Alcohol I typically have a bottle of wine or two saved in case there is a party, but stopped buying liquor / wine/ beer on the regular. Yeah, drinking at home is less expensive than out, but a six pack and a bottle of wine every week could add up to $3k a year for your household... 2. Meat Is expensive. Duh. And unnecessary. Also duh. If you're not plant based, and are not #vegancurious...
