Famous quotes and sentences with the word androgynous.
1
Portia Doubleday
I'm more androgynous, because men are supposed to be more spatial, women more literal - I'm a tomboy.
2
Alice Dreger
I don't have the panic I used to have, meeting people who are androgynous, but when you meet someone whose identity is unclear, that throws your own identity into flux because the way we treat each other is very gendered.
3
Olympia Dukakis
God is not something I think about but something I experience as an energy, a Presence. I do find it easier to pray to a female Presence or an androgynous Presence.
4
Evangeline Lilly

5

7
Charlotte Rampling
My style very much leans towards the masculine, but I think I am feminine in it - I like the feminine body in masculine shapes. The androgynous look suits me.
8
Matt Reeves
As a kid, I was always mistaken for a girl. Before you reach that age where your sexuality starts to display itself, kids can look very androgynous, and I guess I leaned more toward the feminine. All those things were very hard, growing up, because you're trying to create an identity, and you're feeling shameful about the one that you're making.
9
Phyllis Schlafly
Putting women in military combat is the cutting edge of the feminist goal to force us into an androgynous society.
10
Chloe Sevigny
I was a girly-girl until I moved to New York. Then I got really into the androgynous look of the early-'90s club scene. I had really short hair and started blurring the line a bit. But for me, grade school was about Benetton, Esprit, and Guess jeans.
