could i kindly request moments when namjoon has broken gender roles 'cause i love him and i wanna love him even more
namjoon has broken gender roles several times, not only by openly debunking and stating the fact that wearing ‘feminine’ clothes or colours is just a made up concept and continuing to wear those clothes despite ridicule but also by openly being a feminist.
first, lets look at the time he openly debunked the idea of clothes being classified masculine or feminine
and he wasn’t embarrassed at all and has since then continued to wear skirts in photoshoots as well as #kimdailys and in everyday life.
whenever he’s told that pink is a feminine color and even got made fun of for wearing makeup (4things show, which i think everyone should watch, it opens up a lot of things about namjoon) or wearing pink clothes (hellish weekly idol), he continued to do so without being embarrassed or stopping himself from wearing pink and he’s worn makeup (obviously) and donned pink lots of times regardless.
and i don’t have to remind you all of when he had pink hair.
“Hello, this is Rap Monster, aka PinkMon because I love pink, thank you very much.”
now to feminism. in this interview namjoon said:
The interviewer commented, “Some rappers express hip hop by dissing others, demeaning women, or harsh cursing,” and Rap Monster revealed his point of view. He said, “The hip hop culture can be very open, but if you look at it another way, it’s a closed culture that only those within it could understand.”
Rap Monster continued, “The public needs to respect that culture in part, but I think that the demeaning of women needs to be subdued.”

which you can read more about right here, where he said a lot about his thoughts on feminism.
