What is considered a feminine mannerism?

People say I have feminine mannerisms. I don't think I act like a girl at all. I am male.

I say you do not have feminine mannerisms. I say you be who you are. People who know you will love you and people who love you will know you, so what more is there to say?

Stroking one's hair while talking, sitting with your knees together, checking your nails palms down, touching the other person while speaking, watching your reflection in any reflective surface, and using the word "girlfriend" routinely certainly qualify.

It probably has to do with your body language. For example, maybe you cross your legs like a female or walk with a sway in your hips. Or it could be that you are more touchy-feely than most men. Don't worry about it!

I think some things that are considered feminine might be to have a higher-pitched voice, to move gracefully or gently, or to be overly expressive or emotional.

Speaking in a feminine tone of voice,using words or phrases,walking,standing, or other things like females usually do.

Reply by selfishjean (40):
"like females usually do" makes me crazy. there is more variation in mannerisms among women then there is variation between men and women. The idea of feminine mannerisms is patriarchal, homophobic, objectifying BS.  add a comment

Feminine mannerism would be spending time on things like going to the mall, spending too much time on the way you look, being a whiny person, pretty much anything a girl would like to do.
