Young Thug and the Masculinity Discussion

As the discussion of masculinity evolves, we begin to look at music and the effects that it has on boys and men and their ideas of masculinity.  The rapper Young Thug is changing the conversation around masculinity and the hyper masculine ways that most rappers appear and carry themselves.  Young Thug presents himself as he wants to be seen, and that involves whatever conception he wants.  He mostly wears women’s clothing while rapping about guns and gays in a not so nice way.  Young Thug “believes that everyone deserves to be comfortable in their own skin.”

Along with the article, there are some cool pictures of Young Thug that show how great he is at of doing non-gender conforming.
