Someone who gives every appearance of being homosexual
, but is in fact heterosexual
. A fauxmosexual male may display metrosexual attention to hygiene, style, and culture, have an effeminate speech pattern or display effeminate behavoir in gesticulation and mannerism, and/or give the basic impression of being gay
. A faumosexual female may be fairly butch
in appearance and style, display a militant feminist ("feminazi
") attitude toward men, or show strong proclivities toward Lilith Fair
or other female empowerment. These are the people you "just know" are gay, but who seem to show proof to the contrary.
