Is “Male Drag” Necessary

The author of “(Un)feminist guilty pleasure: I don’t want to critique Magic Mike” discusses the that the film “flips the script on some normative gendered narratives,” where straight guys are emotional and the women are not. The author furthers this idea by saying that Magic Mike seems to feel like “male drag,” or men acting like women.  Why do you think it is seems to be necessary to have the stereotypical gender norms in film, even if “alternative representation of masculinity” embodies the more female gender norm?
