What is considered masculine nowadays? Are you a man if you get into fights? Or if you dress up in suits and ties?

There is no one definite answer to the question. And then there are always factors influencing the term from the outside.

Drag queens are performance artists, almost always male, who dress up in women’s clothing. The origin of the term is uncertain, and it was first recorded in reference to actors dressed in women’s clothing in 1870.

Drag queens have influenced the beauty industry, as they have set up few trends that women follow nowadays. But they’ve also changed the way we look at men, and what is considered masculine.
