but not for guys to be feminine without being called gay :confused:
Tomboys are never called gay yet us guys have to stick with our stereotyped gender.

not that im bothered but it kinda annoys me

Well, effeminate blokes usually follow the gay stereotypes.

Tomboyish girls don't necessarily follow lesbian stereotypes...

I think it's perfectly alright for men to be feminine. It's quite sexy actually. I'm sure other girls feel the same...

all depends on how you define tomboyishness or lesbian stereotypes

I suppose I am a tomboy but mainly I'm just pigheaded as if I am accused of lesbian (which is always used as a random insult in my area ike B*****d or B***h) I am more wont to turn around and french the nearest girl rather than deny it. I actually am straight but I am a) unabled to reaffirm my sexuality without seemingly insulting homosexuals and b) secure enough in my own sexuality to not worry about it and quite enjoy the look on their faces.

"You're gay!"

"Yes"

Takes the wind out of their sails, no?

well guys displaying feminine traits like being sensitive and listening to what you have to say is great. Shame there are so few like that.

It's not what you have to do, it's what you ought to do, and that differs with the person. Ignore what other people think about you, as long as you're not interfering with anyone. Easier said than done, yes, but constant paranoia as to what others will say if you do this or say that makes you look insecure and that's even less attractive than pink nail varnish. On anyone.

Yes but people who do that are morons. One thing I've learned is that some people are so stupid you can't win with them. So the best plan is to not care what anyone thinks about you.

You see I am very feminine in this way... but i also blur the boundaries of clothing as well... I don't go as far as skirts and stuff but I wear a lot of things that are stereotypically feminine. I feel comfortable with it. I don't go as far as makeup though. Not really much point.

Wow, do you wear blousy shirts/pink then? I love that whole dandyish 60s rockstar look on men. It's soooo sexy.

I don't mind masculine men, but they have to be intelligent as well. Gender stereotypes are boring.

Guys with a feminine side are great. They no just what colours match, wear nice clothes, and just generally know what girls like. Even gay guys are fun to hang out with!

Black mainly... though I do like pink. Not really into 60s stuff though sorry...

Well I'm fairly intelligent and also nice and fluffy like girls at the same time hehe. Gender stereotypes are boring yes. Thats why I like to blur the line a bit.
