GROUP RECENTLY CREATED AND UNDER CONSTRUCTION: ANY COMMENTS OR SUGGESTIONS ARE VERY WELLCOME ^^


Androgyny is a term derived from the Greek words ανήρ (anér, meaning man) and γυνή (gyné, meaning woman)[1] that can refer to either of two related concepts about gender: the mixing of masculine and feminine characteristics, as in fashion statements; or the balance of "anima and animus" in psychoanalytic theory.

An androgyne in terms of gender identity, is a person who does not fit cleanly into the typical masculine and feminine gender roles of their society. They may also use the term ambigender to describe themselves. Many androgynes identify as being mentally "between" woman and man, or as entirely genderless. They may class themselves as non-gendered, genderneutral, agendered, between genders, Intergendered, bigendered or, genderfluid.

Around the world

Increasing numbers of children in the United States and other modernized countries such as Sweden are being raised to behave in androgynous ways. But traditional gender roles continue to dominate the cultures of many countries around the world.

Music

Many musical movements have embraced an androgynous theme. For example, the genres of glam rock, new wave, goth rock, and no wave often feature male acts sporting an androgynous look. Similarly, the Visual Kei movement of Japan often includes an androgynous look in its style.

Anime and manga

Androgynous characters are readily apparent in anime and manga, possibly due to the concept of beautifully feminine boys known as bishōnen & biseinen, which are a form of Moe. Also, transsexual or crossdressing characters are relatively common when compared to Western media. Bishounenism is not as popular as it was in the 70s, when long haired, skinny androgynous men were the norm for basically all main and secondary characters. Further on the moe of biseinen; effeminately gorgeous villains are very common in both shoujo, shounen anime, and manga (a very good example of such a villain in the Western culture is David Bowie's Jareth the Goblin King in the 1986 fantasy film Labyrinth). Aside from those forms of media, the music and television industry in Japan also seems to prefer effeminately pretty male musicians (such as Hyde of L'Arc-en-Ciel) over masculinely handsome (such as Tomoya Nagase of TOKIO), like the way they prefer cute, big-eyed women (such as Ayumi Hamasaki) over voluptuous, "silicone" women (such as Pamela Anderson).

    I look like a girl. I'm often confused with them. I just love dressing up and claiming myself as a mix of 2 sexes. [2]

    I am a girl...but well, I do love being misunderstood as a boy. I dont wear make up, skirts, female-connected clothes, but well my hair still are femaleish.... Nevermind, being mentally something between a woman and a man is great. Not misunderstood with change of sex, I just love dressing up and claiming myself as a mix of 2 sexes.

    you all should watch Performance (1970) - a great, trippy, movie all about the loss of indentity, and touches a lot on androgyny
