If you frequent rooshvforums or other boards where the central idea is traveling abroad. You'll notice that when the topic of women comes up, it's normally general consensus that girls/women in U.S specifically are more masculine than other countries.

Even if you haven't travelled outside the U.S or you never came here to begin with, it should be easy pointing out differences between feminine females vs. masculine/non-feminine.

Recently, after telling a friend of mine to wear something "more female" for the beach, she basically spent the next 20 minutes telling me that she's not a fan of "girly stuff".

Wait, isn't she female? Well, yes, she is, by are there guys that don't like "boy stuff"? I don't think there are, that would make for a strange young man.

Here in the United States, it's almost an insult to call girls "girly"

How do you feel about masculine women? Why do you think women in the United States are so manly?

Personally, I prefer girls that aren't part man.

And men that aren't part women!

By masculine I assume you mean Tomboy-ish? I know a few girls like that. They don't care to be girly but they won't get pissed off or anything like that unless you keep pressing the issue on them. I see nothing wrong it personally. It's cute in some ways. I don't like helpless girls so it's a plus in my eyes to some degree.

I'm not sure how it is in other countries but I can see why the US women would be considered that way to foreigners. Masculine women definitely aren't the majority though. I'd guess that the whole "strong independent" attitude has some part in it. Also the American culture tends to support freedom of expression more than most countries. Our society is ever changing so it's hard to say really.

I don't know... That chick with 4 arms from Mortal Kombat might give her a run for her money.

I have a fair share of interest in both masculine and feminine fashion, some days I dress sloppily like I don't care and refuse to wear makeup, other days I primp, put on heels, and wear a skirted ensemble. It all depends. I wouldn't say I'm really into a lot of super girly stuff though. I like fashion, I like Lolita fashion, I like makeup, but I'm not especially skilled in anything regarding makeup application, or hair styling. I use the meager knowledge I have from my girlier sister to try and make myself look presentable on girly girly days. Other half of the time, I really don't care.

Thats because in other countries the men are typically more feminine, especially in asian countries, and the females have to become even more feminine to compensate. America has real men, so the women have more room to maneuver. In places like Japan or Korea, its a contest to see who can squeeze into the smallest pair of jeans.

I don't consider myself to be manly, I just do what I like. If I want to wear a suit to a formal event than a dress (and I look REALLY good in my tux ), I'll do it. I just act the way I act, feminine or masculine (gender neutral maybe?). And, the girly men I know are awesome buddies to chat with.

Meh. I'm indifferent about it. I don't care if other girls don't want to be girly. Or if boys want to feel girly. Just let 'em live and express themselves. I'm personally both feminine and masculine and I love it.

It doesn't bother me. I don't like gender stereotypes in general, and it seems natural to me that some people would be unwilling to conform to them. Just do you, as they say.

As far as masculine females go, I know one. She was a tomboy when she was younger and now she looks a lot more feminine, but I can still sense the tomboy side of her.

I have thing for tomboys. I feel I can talk to girls that are tomboys over others kinds of girls.
