So based off of a recent discussion, it got me thinking, how do people define the difference between someone who is androgynous vs someone who is butch? Obviously, there is some overlap but I was curious how people individually define the difference. Also, if possible use an example of someone to highlight what the differences are for you. For me, androgynous is an amalgamation of feminine and masculine styles. So like a woman who wears suits but also wears makeup, or a man who has short hair, but wears a skirt. Androgyny to me has feminine elements whereas butch does not. Butch uses a strictly "masculine" set of aesthetics. K. D. Lang to me is butch, Shane from the L word is androgynous. I also don't think it's so much about what clothes you wear but HOW you wear them.
