We've been asked about this a lot during our events, so we've decided to post this here permanently for those who are not familiar with what a femboy, androgyn, trap or any other person of alternate gender is, here are some examples and explanations. This is for educational purposes only!
1- 'Gender queer' is a catch all for anyone not strictly male or female, so everyone here can be identified as such.
2- Many of these overlap and blur into others, no one is a 'perfect' example of just one thing as we are all unique, have different styles and cannot be stuffed into a neat little box ^_^
3- All these definitions are in the simplest terms possible and are not all encompassing of each. We put them in these terms so everyone can understand them.
*Femboys are males who are more effeminate, sometimes in their mannerisms, physical body, or dress, often blurring the line between male and female. (Note: Femboys are NOT twinks.)
*At first glance, an Androgyn's physical gender is not obvious or obviously defined.
*Traps can be male or female, but they pass as the opposite so well it's a surprise when you find out they aren't.
*Transgenders are NOT traps, they are mentally and/or physically the gender they identify with, regardless of whether their physical matches their mental identity.
*A person of Alternate Gender (also known as genderqueer) is anyone not strictly male or female as defined by society. This can be someone who cross dresses, is a trap, femboy, androgyn, futa, shemale, sissy, transgender, etc.
*A sissy is a male who adopts hyper-feminine behaviors, cross dresses and engages in stereotypical "feminine" activities, including taking on the "submissive female" role in a relationship. (Not all sissies are transgender.)
*A Tgirl looks exactly like every other girl, but has a little extra down below... usually a lot extra, actually, and has large breasts.
*Futa is short for futanari, which, in the hentai community, is a dick girl. A being that has the body of a female and the genitalia of a stallion and extremely large breasts.
*A ladyboy is a male who naturally has all the attributes of a woman except for the plumbing. Some ladyboys do not need surgery or makeup to look like a woman, nor is there a need to try and sound like a woman as it is all natural for them. Some are considered transgender and can be taking hormones or had breast augmentation to create a more feminine body.
Please note, sexual preference has nothing to do with gender identity. Femboys, traps, androgyns, transgenders and all other forms of alternate genders can be any sexual orientation, regardless of how they dress or appear outwardly.
I have also linked to blogs, but be warned, some pics are graphic and Adult in nature. The links to individual pictures we've supplied are all artistic and work safe ^_^v
