One essential aspect of the masculine is direction.
Your ability to steer things to a particular destination is a part of your own masculine.
An essential aspect of the feminine is flow.
Your ability to move in harmony with your surroundings is a part of your own feminine.
Both men and women can direct things.
Both men and women can be in a state of flow.
That said, consider these ice dancers:
The man takes up the masculine role, and takes care of the direction.
The woman takes the feminine role, and flows along.
Of course, they could both dance solo if they wanted to.
The man dancing solo would have to take care of both direction and flow.
The woman dancing solo would have to take care of both flow and direction.
But when they are dancing together, the man gets to do what is more natural for him.
And the woman gets to do what is more natural for her.
And the result is something neither of them could have produced on their own.
