Are androgynous people attractive?Androgynous:
Basically, a human that looks feminine and masculine at the same time. It's sometimes hard to distinguish the actual sex of an androgynous person.

Are androgynous people attractive?
Are androgynous people attractive?The top two images are females that appear to have more masculine features and the two pictures directly above are males that have more feminine features.

I'm just curious if you find any of these people attractive. I'm not saying to go gay for anyone.. That's not what I'm saying. There's a difference between "that's attractive" and "I'd bang that."
I recognize the beauty that my fellow females have all the time.. Doesn't mean that I'd like to have sex with them lol. So please don't make this a question about "well I'm straight soo" because that'll just be a form of spam as you obviously didn't read my question and/or are simply being obnoxious.
Please take this question seriously fam.

  • The first female has an incredibly beautiful and very feminine face. It's just her shirt and haircut that make her look masculine. Some might say she has manly shoulders, but I think it's more the shirt and the way the prominent seams square them off. I may have a bias because I think strong shoulders on women are attractive in any case. Think Halle Berry or Lauren Graham, for example.

    The second female isn't attractive to me. She looks like a pubescent boy and I just am not attracted.

    The guys are good looking guys. Maybe I say that because they look feminine? Not sure. Take away the makeup, goofy eyebrows, and long hair, the second guy still has a feminine face. His chest, shoulders, and arms look male, though.

    With the first guy, I don't think his face is feminine, it's just his hair. It surprises me to say that, since I used to have longer hair for years myself. (Barely long enough for a pony tail.) When I cut it like 5 years ago, the comments from all the women who know me were very surprising. Some told me I finally looked like a guy; others really mourned it and said guys with longer hair were their favorites.

    Voted B, they're somewhat attractive.

    • Nicely said! I love when people take the time to thoroughly answer a question tbh. But yeah those were just example pictures just to jog people's mind and show an example of what you'd typically find I suppose. Of course every androgynous person looks much different from the other though.

    • Yeah! Of course!

      Yeah there's definitely some who pull off the look nicely and some who don't. Like any other fashion sense though!

      Yeah it's actually pretty interesting since he has a very masculine face but the overall effect is somewhat feminine overall.

    • Thank you for MHO! :-)

  • I feel like androgynous guys are often considered attractive. Take boy bands for example. A good number of these guys look damn near feminine, yet they're men. And considered teenage heart throbs to legions of raving girls and women the world over.

    I dont find the same to be true for androgynous women. The "is that a girl?" look isn't as appealing to heterosexual men, i guess?

    • Yeah I get what you mean. Hence why I was pretty curious about this overall. Nice input!

  • I was in my teens.

    Puberty came on slowly. Girls my age (15 and 16) knew I was "safer" than the thugs, greasers and jocks and I experienced quite a lot of intimacy. They knew I would keep it to myself. When I cut my hair and bulked up with weight training, that went away. But before that, I got blown a lot!

    • you picked men over women ? (・・;)
      i'm not sure if i agree with the reasoning that they liked you more than others because they
      felt you were safer. i think it's primarily about physical attraction.

    • @COCOCHANEL I didn't "pick" men. I had to arm myself against them. And I still got my share after my transition. But I hadnto do the inviting.

  • I find feminine men to be the pinnacle of male attractiveness, and that's what I strive to be. I would kill to look more like the guy in the third image.

    However, I don't find masculine women attractive AT ALL. In fact, it is one of the single biggest turn offs for me.

    • They're still women. They just sometimes like to look a bit more masculine for various reasons. Could be because they're gay or even for a reason as simply as them liking how they look or they could be a tomboy etc.

    • Yeah but they don't look womanly.
      I get it they like that look and I'm not saying they gotta change, but just like they have the right to look however they want, I have the right to like whoever I want

    • That's the point πŸ˜… And you mean feminine. Yeah of course. You have your preferences and that's totally cool and all.

  • I do find myself going for women with *some* male characteristics. And it's not cause I'm a 'fag', or what have you. A person's physiognomy should be somewhat reflective of their psyche. So a mixture of sensitivity and beauty with strength is probably reflective of being an almost 'complete' human being. Someone who can draw on both sides. I'm quite feminine looking in some respects, and masculine in others, I think.

    A nice example.

    http://teal-blog.s3.amazonaws.com/2013/10/0636.jpg

    But the examples you give are too far in the other direction. They still need to be femiine and beautiful to me. I'm very much about aesthetics.

    • Very well said! And yeah I used more of extreme examples to show a bit more of an exaggeration of what it is or else people could get confused πŸ˜… But the example you provided could definitely be considered androgynous as well! There's subtle signs of more defining features like you typically find in a male, like you said. They're much more subtle though compared to what I used

      Yeah. I have really nice eyes, good bone structure. The only thing that saves me from looking completely like a female is my defined jaw. I got lucky in the genetic department.

    • I need my opinion to be longer since i like this subject. One of the few ones i find worthwhile... great question!
      Generally, guys don't like tom girls. I like them because they are reliable and most often straightforward. I like women who are strong, but also caring, just like I am, so thats what i will continue to strive for in my personal relationships. If a girl can stand on her own I like that all the same, but in a relationship if I can pull her up off the floor and be an anchor with her doing the same for me i think it makes an unbeatable team :)

  • Sure, absolutely. Jared Leto BC Dallas Buyers' is a pretty good example. Usually the biggest indicator or sex is voice.

    If far as looks you can usually tell native sex, if they have one, but I know I've seen individuals from both sexes seem really appealing.

    Usually it comes down to how they carry themselves and ofcourse overall aesthetics. Some originally gender assigned women have really turned me on but when the pants come off I'm not sure I'm there yet.

    More likely, if a gender fluid person assigned the gender of male at birth who identifies more as female but kept his parts, I could see that working. Not with any person but with the right person.

    My problem comes in usually because gender fluids may also be bisexual in cases where they are into women. I'm down with that but only so long as we are completely monogamous. My concern is infection from small traces of fecal matter going out ones in and into another's. Very serious problems occur for the vagina when exposed to fecal matter. Trust me I have the same concerns if the butt of my own. It leads to UTI infections which are soooo painful and can spread to kidneys.

    Not speaking from experience on the butt stuff but certainly am on a UTI. Just imagine you dick having a burning internal feeling, feeling like you have to pee every second and submitting to the fetal position. That's a UTI.

    Doctors cancel appointments and move things around to treat a UTI. I've had doc in a box grocery store clinics agree to see me after hours and write a script without even a test when I called ahead.

    I've only ever had 2 UTI's. But I've also seen good friends go through them waiting for the doctor. It's not a good situation. It's worse than the flu and again can damage your kidneys. So no poop related anything belongs in or near my vajajay even if you've showered.

    • Well saying something like "I will not be with a man that looks feminine" is kinda shallow.. Just because of how someone looks.. You could potentially meet one of the greatest guys ever and he could look a bit more towards the feminine side, and because of what you were implying, you wouldn't date him over a feature that he can't exactly control.. Hence I summed it up as being somewhat shallow.. I understand what you meant overall but I'm just pointing out that that's what you were pretty much saying.

    • He's not supposed to look 100% like a girl. Androgynous just means that you have some features that appear to represent more often in the opposite sex. It doesn't mean that someone is transgender in appearance or anything. That specific person you mentioned, like you said, definitely has a stronger jawline etc. but his overall face appear more soft and feminine-like. Especially around his eyes and lips.
