About this submission

Can women be role models for young men in the 21st century, or is that still somewhat impossible?

Among some teenage boys of our generation, femininity, softness, and emotional awareness are now considered cool. Like many boys of this generation, Miles automatically assumes his own feminism, but what does that prevent him from seeing about his behavior? What do middle-aged women make of these teenagers? On Camille's end, is there jealousy about missing out on this generation, or is there the sense that these men are insincerely pushing away who they are to keep up appearances?
