Masculinity, similar to femininity and gender, is a very fluid concept. One of the beautiful aspects of masculinity is that it can appear in many different forms. While masculinity encompasses qualities typically associated with men, I have always identified as a more masculine women and have embraced it. About five years ago, I decided to explore my masculinity further. Since then, I have found I am much more comfortable expressing the more masculine side of my personality. Masculinity can have different meanings for everyone, and people express it in different ways. For me, my personality traits that I view as more masculine, such as my competitive nature, my athleticism, and my love of adventure, have always been crucial aspects of my character. Over the past several years, I have begun to mirror how I felt internally with my outward appearance. I love a good suit and tie, I feel more confident and comfortable in men’s clothing, and I feel that by matching my outward appearance with my personality I have developed a very clear sense of self.
