The adjective, Androgynous, dates from the early 17th century and is derived from the older French and English term androgyne. Androgyny is the possession of both masculine and feminine characteristics in humans. People of any gender and sexual orientation can be androgynous. Although many non-binary and gender fluid people take on androgynous gender presentations, so do cisgender and transgender binary individuals. There is no inherent association between gender identity and androgyny. Androgyny can be about identity, but it can also be about fashion and style.
