Androgyny | Androgynous
Androgyny combines masculine and feminine characteristics into an ambiguous form—this vague form and or person may not identify and or present themselves as neither distinguishably masculine nor feminine. Androgynous gender expression has waxed and waned in popularity in different cultures and throughout history.
The androgenous expression exists universally through biological sex, gender identity, or gender expression. In biology, androgyny refers to individuals with fully developed sexual organs of both sexes. When androgyny refers to mixed biological sex characteristics in humans, it often relates to intersex people. In psychology, androgyny refers to individuals with strong personality traits associated with both sexes. The "androgynous" look has been both accepted and popularized by pop culture icons and trendsetters in fashion.
