What it Means to be Feminine

Based on a conversation I had last week about this 2017 Nike commercial I've been thinking quite a bit about feminine vs. masculine. While these words could be neutral descriptors like black vs. white or hot vs. cold, society hasn't treated them as equal.

Somewhere along the way, feminine became associated with weaker or less than.

Let's look at that commercial. I believe it was well-intentioned and meant to send a positive message.
