Welcome to FABUTUDE, the podcast where we help you find your fabulous attitude, your 'Fabutude'! This episode marks the beginning of our enlightening mini-series theme - 'Masc. vs. Fem.'
Join your fabulous hosts, Wynn and Stephan, on this captivating journey into the world of gender norms and stereotypes. Together, they not only define these concepts but also dissect and discuss them in a compelling and relatable manner. Starting with their own personal gender journeys, Wynn and Stephan share experiences and anecdotes that shape their understanding of the spectrum that is masculinity and femininity.
The 'Word of the Week' is 'Gender Binary,' and our hosts invite you to use this term in a sentence and share with them on social media. Who knows, you might win a special surprise!
They then dive into a comprehensive discussion about the impact of gender norms and roles on individuals and society. How do these norms affect our personal and professional lives? How are they perpetuated? And most importantly, how can we challenge and overcome them? Wynn and Stephan offer insightful perspectives, all while keeping the conversation engaging with their light-hearted banter and quick wit.
A highlight of the episode is when the hosts debate if societal templates for gender roles can be helpful in some way or if they are inherently restrictive. This thought-provoking dialogue might get you questioning your own stance on the matter.
The episode wraps up with the hosts encouraging everyone to live beyond binary constraints and to embrace their unique identities. The key takeaway? Be authentic and stay fabulous!
