A grown woman laughing at a six year old boy doing ballet tells us two things:
1. She’s never been to the ballet cos those men are athletic beyond words and wildly talented
2. Toxic views of “masculinity” are just held by men. And that’s worth remembering.
@dylanhorrocks I think the romance novels aimed at men get to be called just novels. If you think of authors like Nick Hornby and David Nichols, they write romance novels aimed at men, but they’re not marketed as romance novels because men aren’t supposed to want to read romance.
