I bet not many of you would think of long dresses and jewellery when thinking of manly man things. Right? Well, I’m here to change that perception for you. The definition of masculinity has evolved over the ages and nothing better demonstrates this fact than how so many things that we now associate, without a second’s thought, with femininity, were originally meant for men.

Here are 5 things that came into being for the sake of men, and somehow, down the line became the most ‘womanly’ things imaginable.







Are there any others that you know about? Tell us in the comments! And the next time you decide to categorise something as distinctly ‘manly’ or ‘womanly’, think again – you never know what tale its past has to tell.
