A person that possesses both male and female characteristics to the extent that it can be hard to tell if they are a guy or a girl. Definitely looks better on guys than on girls for the most part, as many androgynous/effeminate men are considered attractive to the opposite sex. However, females that are androgynous can not pull it off nearly as well because.. well, come on, butch women are gross.
Justin Bieber is highly androgynous, as well as the lead singer of Tokyo Hotel.

Traditionally, this word is defined as another word for an androgynous person, or a person with intersex genitalia. Androgyne is also a word for a non-binary gender identity that exists in the rough middle of the gender spectrum between "male" and "female" presentation and identity. Androgyne people often seek to wear androgynous types of clothes to reflect their gender. Not all Androgyne people dress this way, but it is the trend. Neutral pronouns are usually used by these people, but it is not always the case.

Androgyne is the "neither" as well as the "both" when it comes to gender identities, as to say, it is both equally feminine and masculine, while being neither of them at the same time. If the color red was the most masculine , and the color blue was the most feminine, Androgyne would be light purple. Not a perfect mix of red and blue, but there are elements of both present, while there is a third element presence that holds no heraldry to masculinity or femininity (i.e., the color white, representing "non-binary gender", making it a light purple). Roughly less than 0.1% of the current US population identify this way, but that's still a lot of people (this is a rough estimate made after observing "Transgender Population Size in the United States: a Meta-Regression of Population-Based Probability Samples" by Esther L. Meerwijk, PhD corresponding author, and Jae M. Sevelius, PhD).
Max is an androgyne person, and they prefer neutral pronouns. | Androgyne folks are pretty neat; a lot of them seem to challenge traditional concepts of gender with their fashion choices by blending typically "male" and "female" fashions together to create something new. | There are a lot of non-binary gender identities out there, androgyne being one example.
