Androgyny at its finest right here.

This caption infuriates me. Androgyny is so much more than just a thin, white person with no breasts and short hair. Androgyny, from my perspective, is the blending of masculine and feminine elements in any and all forms. Androgyny isn’t looking male, it’s looking like a human who expresses both masculinity and creates new gender options. It doesn’t just apply white male standards of attractiveness to female bodies but works to broaden the shades of gray.
These folks have the kind of androgyny I’m talking about:

my beau, N

hisblackdress

boyqueen

streetstyle via blackfashion

how would y’all define androgyny in a way that’s more inclusive?

So glad I’m not the only one who feels this way!
