Sean Penn says men in America are becoming “quite feminized” … and he has a not-so woke or PC idea of why it’s happening.
The Oscar-winning actor just doubled down on comments he made to British publication The Independent about men wearing what’s traditionally been women’s clothing. ICYMI … Sean said, “There are a lot of, I think, cowardly genes that lead to people surrendering their jeans and putting on a skirt.”
Sean tried to clarify those remarks while talking to another UK outlet, and you can decide for yourself how that worked out. According to The i, he said … “I am in the club that believes that men in American culture have become wildly feminized. I don’t think that being a brute or having insensitivity or disrespect for women is anything to do with masculinity, or ever did. But, I don’t think that [in order] to be fair to women, we should become them.”
SP added that the women in his life — including his daughter, Dylan, who he directed in the new movie, “Flag Day” — don’t see masculinity as being inherently oppressive.
Harry Styles and Kid Cudi famously wore skirts during performances and/or photo shoots last year, but Sean did not call out anyone by name during the interviews. 🤔
