By the way Jenn, I totally agree with you in the socialization thing. This unfortunately is a hard thing to change. It would have to start very young and with parenting. I hate to be a pessimist, but I don't think the way girls and boys are socialized in this country will ever change.
You should see the little kids at a school where I do volunteer work. If you ask the three-year-olds about ballet class, all the kids raise their hands to participate. By the time they get to that sexuality identity age (about five or six) the boys will not dance. Truthfully, there's not a single boy in the ballet class. Dance is for girls, remember. :x Sad, isn't it?
