There are still possibilities that these are satire, however…
Rivelino of Twitter has recently gone viral with his ‘Don’t lean in’ Twitter thread. Essentially, the content is about why men should never lean in not to appear weak.
In his posts of straight couples, Rivelino drew a green line on them to show when a man leans in.
We’ll leave the reading (or not) of his Twitter thread to you.
In the case you’re one of the TL;DR, here’s the summary of Rivelino’s case: if you lean in, you’re weak. Women should feel lucky about being chosen by a man, and they should never lean in, or they’ll show how ‘needy’ they are. Only ‘feminine’ ones should lean into those with ‘masculine’ properties, i.e., only women should ‘lean in’ towards men.
As if being in love with each other doesn’t mean you need each other, but okay.
People just right out called out the ridiculousness.
Many people pointed out how this is glorifying toxic masculinity in hetero relationships. It painted ‘needy’ men to be ‘losers’ while also encouraging them to be self-conscious with how they stand.
Okay, so body language is not an old subject. It’s a proven subject often implemented in serious situations, particularly in analyzing and identifying criminals and their lies. Long story short, concerning this series of tweets, this isn’t what body language of love is supposed to mean.
