Yes, certainly. But since gender is the crux of #MeToo, Time’s Up, and “Grace” vs. Aziz Ansari, I think it’s ok to talk in gender specifics. And taking that and the aspirations of many modern gay men into consideration, I think acting like a real man is preferable to acting like a straight man, especially since real men, unafraid to be sensitive, are not limited by gender expectations. Hope that makes sense!
