Yeah, fiber arts were and are considered masculine activities in many cultures. That’s part of why I’d like to reclaim them for men in my own America.

Also, men need to push for a positive definition of masculinity, one that does not merely define the masculine as that which is not feminine. I see the re-popularization of fiber arts as an opening push in that campaign.
