How would we do a role-reversal here?
18 March 2018 | by janiceadkins-56831See all my reviews

I like the way Springer-4 says "I no longer long to wear long ears!" Kirstie Alley does a great tribute to Gloria Steinem. I don't see it as "wrong" in a general sense, but it would be nice to see a little "role-reversal" once in a while. Dress up young men with a white shirt and tie for the top, but swim trunks or exercise shorts for the bottom, and have them be "objectified" in a "ladies club." I suppose they have something like this already for women to harass boys, but not enough to give balance to the way it's usually done.
