feminine / theme
A quality or label with a checkered past and an uncertain future. Feminine once escorted wiles and weaknesses to and from the lips of women's detractors. It still tends to wear colors like lavender and peach, and bears traits like softness, grace, and sweetness. It has mostly abandoned modesty, demureness, and chastity. Feminine, to its credit, is no longer a single-sex institution, and it continues to advocate community, nonviolence, and good taste.
