Interview with GQ has revealed that designer,
Designer/movie director Tom Ford has an interesting viewpoint on how [straight] men can learn to be more sympathetic to the plight of the women in their lives…try a little homosexual encounter to get a feel for it.
Yes, he says, all men should be penetrated at some point. And not as in emotions. He means: All men should be f*cked. “I think it would help them understand women,” he argues. “It’s such a vulnerable position to be in, and it’s such a passive position to be in. And there’s such an invasion, in a way, that even if it’s consensual, it’s just very personal. And I think there’s a psyche that happens because of it that makes you understand and appreciate what women go through their whole life, because it’s not just sexual, it’s a complete setup of the way the world works, that one sex has the ability to literally—and is expected to and is wanted to—but also there’s an invasion. And I think that that’s something most men do not understand at all.”
