high culture is inherently masculine
This is interesting. I was raised in an upper middle class home with private music lessons in multiple instruments, city youth orchestra, music trips, tours, conferences overseas, camps.. music dance and art are such a part of my childhood. Being raised to be noble and aim for a higher ideal. The operas, the ballets, the concerts and recitals.. It took me many years after leaving home to realize just how different it made me to others. To American Midwestern conservatives.
