Androsexual

Pronunciation:

|ˈandrō||ˈsekSH(o͞o)əl|

Definition:

An androsexual can mean two different things;

1. Someone who has sexual feelings or inclinations towards the male sex. It is a term derived from the Greek word ‘andros’, meaning man.

2. Someone who feels a sexual attraction towards people who define themselves as being any variation of gender neutral or non-gendered. This sexual orientation is similar to bisexuality.

This particular term applies mainly to genderqueer individuals who do not necessarily fall within the lines of heterosexuality or homosexuality.

Example 1:

Mike, who identified himself as genderqueer, insisted that he was not homosexual for liking men. Instead, he preferred the term Androsexual.

Example 2:

When David came out as gender neutral, his girlfriend became androsexual as a result.
