Short for masculine, masc is a cultural term used by LGBTQ+ people to denote masculine appearance or mannerisms in queer people. It is not exactly the same as masculinity (See: femme vs. femininity).

All bodies can be masc, masc people can use all pronouns. To be masc doesn't necessarily mean you want to be like a cisgender heterosexual man. Most often masc culture is defined by queer masculine people- especially transmasc (mas transgender and gender nonconforming) people. Like masculinity, masc is not defined by cisgender or heterosexual men and being masc doesn't automatically mean you practice "toxic masculinity" or hate femininity.

There is some complex overlap between butch lesbian and transmasc culture.

Alex: Thanks dude, but first tell me where you got that button up?

Kyle: Mascs are great, but why can't they just admit they like to bottom too?
Todd: I don't know, their loss.

Abbreviated from the word masculine, "masc" refers to physical and personality traits stereotypically associated with heterosexual cisgender men. The term is most often used on gay dating apps and websites to describe oneself or one's ideal partner. "Masc" fetishizes and exaggerates the notion of what it means to be manly, adding to the culture of toxic masculinity within the gay community, especially among men of color.

Masc 4 Masc” is a phrase with which many gay men on dating apps are familiar. Men often describe themselves this way to indicate that they’re masculine-acting, and are seeking other masculine-acting individuals. Those who use the term tend to be straight-passing men who refuse to communicate with anyone other than straight-passing men, and therefore dismiss and/or degrade feminine or androgynous people. They sometimes use the term “no fems” as well.
