In the case of which has more pressure to act their appropriate sex, male or female, the winner is male hands down. Even with homosexuality, males are looked down upon much more than females are. But without even going that far, a feminine guy is almost never considered “one of the guys” and is most often considered as an outcast. However, a “tomgirl” will be socially accepted by both males and females and is even sought after by males for girlfriends. I had this guy in my AP English class last year that was a prime example of that guy that is just a
