Masculine?

Would you describe this body as "masculine"? If NO, why? If YES, why?

  1. Masculine: Having qualities or appearance traditionally associated with men, esp. strength and aggressiveness.

    So, no.

  2. Even if this is a picture of a male transitioner, she is not masculine.

  3. Not masculine. She appears to be the ideal female form, someone you'd see doing nude modeling in an art school. It's not likely she used to be a guy, her proportions are too female.

    We're waiting for the punch line. It could be, fooled you, she used to be a guy, or fooled you, this is a really butch girl with her clothes off. I'm voting for answer #2.

  4. Or, not masculine, because an unmodified body only has a sex, not a gender.

  5. Not masculine because at glance she is biologically female, not male.

    I dont think this person is post op male TS given the proportions. Its extremely difficult to create an entirely feminine form out of a masculine one and vice versa because of the different bone structure. And why would butch not be feminine when she is female?

  6. There is nothing "masculine" about the picture. She looks healthy and very female to me (obviously the breasts, but also shape of hips, etc.)

  7. Nope. Looks like many my ex-GFs. My only impression about the picture is that it's been Photoshopped – I see where a blur tool has been applied and it looks like a filter, too.

    I'm not trying to argue for 50 different genders, as I'd like to live in a post-gender world too. In my dudebro field of employ (I work for LinkedIn), it would help immensely with pay equality, equal treatment, and more, since people would stop getting that basic visceral reaction of female=incompetent when assessing candidates for hire, raises, promotions, or even basic work duty.

    But I have seen with an XY woman who transitioned young and as per middle-school photos was always an hourglass, with a couple XY males I know who have hips and jutting butts, and with the upside-down triangle-shaped women in my own family, that there's quite a bit of body shape variation even among XX vs. XY people who are karyotypically normal, that is, don't have an extra or missing chromosome. Generally, upside-down triangle is XY and hourglass is XX, but that's not foolproof.
