Terrie,

Interesting questions. Does this question relate to the visual impact of
images?

It seems that so many fashion accessories and components have become
"unisexed" recently. Maybe we can address society with our question of
why. Roles within the work environment and within the home are becoming
less and less defined. As a result, perhaps we are experiencing our first
encounters with a society which doesn't find distinguished sex roles as
important. De-emphasizing the importance/significance of inherently female
and male characteristics may be a natural result of the confusion and
struggles which surround this loss of gender role definition.

But, from what I can see, this media influence doesn't seem to be doing any
harm. As many other fashion trends, it is likely to subside as soon as the
famous people of the world no longer see it as fashionable. However, I
think it may leave a mark on the minds of children, allowing them to
perhaps be more open to differing roles within the home and workplace.
This is good, is it not? What may be bad (in my female perspective) is to
see the loss of importance in what it is to be feminine... an abandonment
of innately female characteristics for the sake of being trendy. Again,
that is just my point of view.
