Female Masculinities[edit]

Hi everyone! I am new to Wikipedia but I would like to add a section titled, "Female Masculinities", into this page. I am doing this for a project for one of my classes. (Ilfinestrino (talk) 05:49, 9 March 2016 (UTC))

I will be deciphering the various analytical frameworks of female masculinities such as: penis envy, female masculinity as a “defense mechanism” and the correlation between homosexuality and female masculinity. I will be analyzing the works of Robert Stoller and Judith Butler.

I will be drawing information from Female Masculinity by Jack Halberstam, Female Masculinity and Phallic Women-Unruly Concepts by Judith Kegan Gardiner.

Please let me know if I am not writing something in the correct format. Also, please comment on my sources and let me know if they are adequate. (Ilfinestrino (talk) 06:00, 9 March 2016 (UTC))

@Ilfinestrino: That's a great idea. I've created a new section to get you started: Masculinity#Masculinity in women. I also left a few comments for you on your talk page. Your sources look excellent. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with! Kaldari (talk) 18:22, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

Alcohol Consumption[edit]

Since the assertion on alcohol over-consumption is equated to masculinity is poorly sited and supported, and contradicted in articles like this, I deleted the section. Also, the one billion strong Islamic population abstains from alcohol consumption and Muslim men can often be very masculine. RomanGrandpa (talk) 15:05, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
