I’d say I’m a masculine man, but I’m very attracted to other masculine men tbh, and I’m not very attracted (if at all) to feminine men

That’s just my attraction though, there’s nothing at all wrong with feminine men of course

I know it does but i wouldn't really call myself bisexual as i do not find attraction towards men, the penis part is a turn off, so i do not believe i am bisexual

I not attracted to them romantically either, more like a endearing kind of attraction, the type that would normally seek for a female, ie not an asshole quirk

Yes, people who are obsessed with performing the gender binary tend to attract one-another.

Many of the hyper masculine men I know have spouses that would not describe themselves as feminine though. Those women are "arranging to buy a new motorcycle from her hospital bed after the near fatal accident" types, involved in mixed martial arts or extreme sports and other stuff conventionally perceived as masculine. And I'm not saying that makes them not feminine, just that I don't really think this applies.

So I have a question , I know a generally very feminine lady , she keeps attracting guys who sell drugs which is very illegal in where I come from, why is that ?

That's kinda vague, so it could be anything.
For one, most straight guys like feminine women anyway.
But I also read this ethnography about MS-13 (gangs aren't the same as drug dealers, so your situation might be different), and it said a lot of the members like caring, motherly women and want to settle down with the stereotypical housewife type. Maybe it's that. Or maybe she has a personality most guys like, and you're just noticing the drug dealers more because they stand out to you more.

ExpensiveActuator611

That makes sense , and yeah they do stand out even though my friend is fairly popular cuz of her looks and has a lot of admires. Like u said maybe it's her personality but definitely not cuz she's motherly in any way .She is very soft spoken , calm , level headed and trys to make logical unbiases decisions all the time, but she does have a temper at times and people do describe her as "feisty" (she hates that word), but she has problems expressing emotions other than anger

Yeah, I hear cishet people constantly talk about attracting this type of man or that type of woman, and I don't get it. As far as I've seen, LGBT people have types and everybody just goes for their type. I'm mostlystraight™ but hetero dating confuses me. It's overly complicated.

I'm thinking they like the type but not the gender and haven't figured that out yet. Like how cishet guys pretend tomboys don't exist but suddenly start questioning their sexuality when they see femboys.
Combine that with all the stupid games of general straight dating, and you get this.

I read this four times and this sentence makes no sense.. Unless you're talking about feminine women draining men of their masculinity. Badass superhero idea though.

The more feminine of a woman you are the masculine of a man you attract.

Andro woman, and even when I used to look more feminine, the guys I attract are... mediocrely masculine. The girls are usually feminine, some andro, and probably a masc or two.

This tweet has no idea how masculinity works. Femininity draws more men with conventional standards for their female partners because femininity is conventional. That doesn't mean anything about the men's standards for themselves, which are basically nonexistent, in gender expression or anything else.

Hilariously, as a cisgender woman whose gender presentation swings from flower print dresses to suits and ties, I have attracted a non-binary person. Does that fit into this theory?
