“Men should be allowed to express cuteness, prettiness or emotional vulnerability if they want,” Hileman said. “Cybertwee’s culture is anti-sexism, so while obviously it’s not going to be for everyone, as not all people are especially feminine, if some more masculine people can resonate with us and open up to our ideas, perhaps we can find ways to bring more women into the tech world or find ways to narrow wage gaps together. ”
