Growing a beard my age requires a miracle, and my style of clothing is pretty standard, though maybe I look a bit more messy than my peers. My music taste includes both metal and emo. My conclusion? I don't know, but I don't really care either.

Well, I'm a girl, but I have a pixie cut and don't really like high heels or skits/dresses (unless they have pockets, then they're fine). I really like sneakers, but that could be because I have flat feet and joint issues. I like the more "masculine" disciplines like math and science as opposed to history. But I like literature and music, so there's that. In general I'm of the opinion that function trumps form, but that form is important too. I like cooking. I like wearing fancy winged eyeliner. I like sewing. I don't like carrying purses. I'm assertive when it comes to stating my opinion.

Why are some things considered more masculine or feminine, though? I mean, I've been mistaken for a boy before (only briefly though, because my figure is DEFINITELY feminine), probably because people see short hair and automatically assume short hair=boy. But I don't feel less female because I do some things that aren't "feminine". I think the idea that certain behaviors are masculine or feminine is kind of pointless because it's so dependent upon culture.

I've always had an androgynous body type. I'd like to put on a good 15 pounds or so though, mostly to fill out upper body a bit as it's kinda of disproportional to the rest of me. Mentally, I guess by cliche American standards I waver back and forth. I've never cared about being considered masculine, feminine, or anything else really. I am me and if anyone has a problem with that they can suck it.

I'd have to say I'm more masculine, because I fart a lot, and drink beer.

I'd say that I'm decidedly more feminine than masculine. I like having my long hair; I like makeup and cute things and handbags. Then again I've also been known to chill a lot more comfortably with dudes (they don't mind my twisted sense of humor and often times they seem to have a better taste in music, film, art, and everything else).

I don't really follow the typical gender norms for women (for instance, I have no interest in having kids or going into any profession that's seen as "typical" for women - I don't find any pleasure in romantic comedies, "chick flicks", manicures/pedicures, and I don't have a ton of girl friends) but I do identify as a cissexual female.

My sexuality, of course, is a completely different matter.

You should pamper yourself from time to time. Mani/Pedi and a massage are good for the soul regardless of gender.

When I was trimming my beard today, one of the blades of my clippers broke in half. So I guess my answer would be masculine with some feminine crossovers (i.e. grooming).

I'd venture closer to the masculine side. My hobbies consist of masculine hobbies. I can literally shave and have a beard about an hour later. I probably need to get in touch with my feminine side a bit more, but I have time to do so.

I'm pretty feminine. I love shopping, I care about the way I look, I cook a lot and I have emotions.
