I'm biologically female. But I don't identify as female. I want to present more masculine

I know a guy who now is a woman. When I met him he was skinny as a twig. 5'6" and no heavier than 110 pounds. No hips, no butt, no boobs ( obviously ). I moved away and the only contact we had was on FB. Now 2.5 years later he has gained maybe 10 pounds. He has a bigger butt and he has boobs!!!!He also changed his name to a female name so I guess I should call him a her.

I associate prominent cheekbones with femininity. I have them.

I associate long eyelashes with femininity, but it seems like more men are blessed with them than women.

I think men have wider jaws too.

OK, so you are a woman but look like a man? Not sure what "identify" means. If you appear more like a man then why do you want to "present more masculine"? You already are. Sorry, it is a slow day.

No did you read my description? I actually look too feminine which is why the yt vids make up tips on how to look more masculine didn't really help the problem with my prominent lips... Mainly it's not just my lips but my nose being so small added to the problem. And then having cheekbones too round and high. I just wanted advice but I found a natural look to minimize. But idk if it'll be too obvious. I also don't want any plastic surgery.

I want to present as male because I'm trans. You've never heard of a trans man? Yeah that's what I am in a sense. I identify as agender on the male side of the things sometimes androgynous My gender expression is bigender I don't see myself as male or female and I don't have body dysmorphia. I'm actually proud of my body. But I naturally prefer male pronouns. Despite looking really feminine I naturally am more masculine. Which is odd especially when I'm feminine in presentation. Because I look really feminine and am "straight" but I act like a dude. I have accepted I'll never be an ultra femme girl. I don't understand it or want to be. I have feminine moments too. I like make up and I'm skinny with a shape so I like dressing up. But it's just like dressing a doll up not really myself. I don't mentally identify with my female peer. I wrote a thread about dressing more femme as well. But I was mainly talking about day to day presentation.

I used to be like 84 lbs and a little over 5 ft. I found my body was easier to present in a sense back then because all I had to do was wear a binder. I am around 95-100 lbs now I'm a total hourglass. I was always chesty C cup and up but idk if it was growing up the food I ate or just gaining weight but my hip bones top ones got wider and now am like a top hourglass in figure but I'm still skinny and I with roomy clothes can look straight if I want to so it's not a problem. I just don't like being anywhere near 105 because I become a DD cup that's so hard to contain especially when I'm a size 1 or 3 it all just gets too feminine that's why I like to stay under 100 lbs so I look more masculine. The skinnier I get the more my shoulders show off so I tend to like staying slim.


And yeah you should call her what she is which is a woman not a man.

c) A mouth, with an upper and lower lip
d) A chin
e) Cheeks, one left and one right
f) Teeth ... when they are visible
g) A forehead
h) A hairline of some kind
i) Ears ... maybe. Some women have ears prominant enough to be considered part of her face.
j) Two eyebrows, one above each eye, one to the right and one to the left
k) Eyelashes affixed both above and below the eye; this applies to both eyes
l) Eye interior - various parts including cornea, retina, pupil, iris, etc. This applies to both eyes.
m) That little divot just beneath the nose (called the philtrum in anatomy textbooks)
n) Eyelids; one for each eye
o Tongue, when it is stuck out to lick something, give someone the raspberry, or freeze its tip to a cold flagpole

Optional Accessories

a) Moles and "beauty" marks
b) Age spots
c) Crow's feet, laugh lines, and other wrinkles
d) Make-up (mostly noticed when there's too much of it)
e) Scraggly little hairs above the lip or on the cheek (electrolysis is helpful here)
f) furrows on the forehead ... makes one look like a Klingon if they're too deep
g) Glasses
i) Dimples, for that irresistably pinchable look
j) Cleft in the chin
k) Bangs, good for covering up Klingon-like forehead furrows (see item f)
l) Pimples, blackheads, and other signs of acne
j) Scars and pockmarks from getting chickenpox later in life
l) Other scars, like from that night when you went into biker bar and tried to take "Cobra" from his biker chick girlfriend (if only you knew she had a knife ...)
m) Overbites and underbites
n) Braces (for some) and those awful wire frames that stick out of the mouth and go all the way around the head (for those even more unlucky)
o) Bits of food or a milk mustache for those women who are untidy eaters. (Food goes into the mouth, not around it)
p) Oil - some women have lots of it on their skin so that they shine as if just buffed and polished with Turtle Wax
q) Various piercings, especially in the nose, lip, and eyebrow. Special note: piercings are often mistaken for item "o" on this list when seen from a distance)
r) A neck, irresistably wringable, especially the person's neck who wrote a post like this one.
