Quote of the Day
A lot of men do have a fear of my ultra-femininity. Sometimes people say I look like a drag queen, that I look scary, but I think that's a fear of my confidence. Most women in contemporary culture pare down their femininity, so there's a slight androgyny about them, and I think men have got used to seeing that.
Androgyny is not trying to manage the relationship between the opposites; it is simply flowing between them.
Androgyny refers to a specific way of joining the 'masculine' and 'feminine' aspects of a single human being.
In a sense I portray myself in a very androgynous way, and I love androgyny.
I'm in favour of hipster androgyny: Any trend that permits men to rebel against strict gender rules of appearance is going to make the world a more expressive and sensitive place for all of us.
There is a certain androgyny to my appeal.
My style is scruffy with a touch of androgyny.
I think that androgyny is so amazing. Men's shows I can look at and say, 'I would wear that.' But there's things I see at Nina Ricci, and I'm like, 'They need to make that in men's,' or 'I want those pants.' Everything is inspiring.
To recommend that women become identical to men, would be simple reversal, and would defeat the whole point of androgyny, and for that matter, feminism: in both, the whole point is choice.

I was always into very androgynous things. Guys, girls... I'm into androgyny in general.
Evan Rachel Wood
I grew up at a time with androgyny in the 1980s; it was easy to pass under the radar as a gay may.
