This is kinda odd to ask, but I think certain cities do tend to be more of the other

Savannah, GA to me- I cant help but say is definitely a more feminine city. Just the vibe of the place, and the the culture. Its almost overly refined. NYC- definitely masculine, as are cities in the Midwest.

Masculine doesnt necessarily have to mean blue collar though. DC would be a good example of a refined, yet masculine town.

What do y'all think? Could this be true?

Sure. I think San Francisco is a Lesbian or a Transvestite.

Nice, it only took one post for someone to say something like this. How original! You played the oldest, most tired, and predictable stereotype in the book.

And this is a stupid topic. Masculinity/femininity are traits of an individual. Not a city.

Kansas City is gender bent. Men behave like women and women behave like men. So much for that theory that all Midwestern cities are macho eh? :-)

Fort Worth is easily the most masculine city in the world except for maybe Dubai where the skies rain jet-skis.

Well, DC could be a town of a lot of men but masculine...I don't think so. What exactly is it about DC that makes the word "manly" come to mind? Ditto NYC, San Francisco, Chicago, Los Angeles or any of those nail buffing, loafer with tassel wearing, man-bag toting, hair product, fragrance-wearing, wine sipping cities. And I'm not talking about the gay population, either.

I think a lot of west coast cities tend to be more feminine, whereas the East coast is more masculine.
