This is another piece of art I worked on involving some of the fandom "fetishes" and trying to get a "realistic" point of view about them from characters. This one is about being a femboy in the furry community. It was a little difficult to really type out what I wanted to say about the whole topic, but I was limited in space and wanted to keep the blog as simple as possible. Im not a website designer, so I kept the site as simple as I can. Heh. I tried to make it as believable as possible.

Also, I don't know if I am using the right term: Femboy. Some describe them as Crossdressers, cunt-boys, sissy-boys and girly boys. Which is correct in this case?

I did a lot of research on this one because there are several points of view about Femboys/Crossdressers. I went to Fchan, Furaffinity, Paws, HardBlush, Hot Cider and other femboy websites that show various styles of how artists draw feminine boys in whatever situation. A lot of sites seem to have one major character to their categories and libraries: Marty from HardBlush. I used that character as reference and tried to picture someone who is a fan of Marty's work ( the artist's illustrations ) and wanted to try to become someone like him without losing himself. However, the more I dug into the femboy fandom, the more confused and frustrated I became. Many images all look the same: same style, same concept, same colors, same sexual situation. Almost every picture looked alike and there wasn't enough room to really research the topic. I went to more websites outside the fandom and found almost the same thing. That is where I changed my point of view. I looked at it on more of a mental/spiritual side and spoke with a few who knew some femboys themselves.

With what I gathered ( and with a HUGE amount of help from tsunami-dragon :icontsunami-dragon: ), I put it into the image, describing a male horse who is feminine in nature and dresses up in clothing that reveals his curves and feminine posture. He wants to be who he is without being involved in sexual acts. However, it is hard for him because everyone things that all males who are female in appearance are extremely gay and present themselves as sexual playthings. He is also a horse and being well endowed, it is hard for him to not be a sexual eye candy to others. He gets frustrated and tries to still be himself while dealing with the negative view points of others who don't believe or understand his point of view.

That is when he describes something more in the femboy fandom than just that: someone who is comfortable with their body and is comfortable with their sexuality. They celebrate their youth and beauty in the manner that feels comfortable to them. They were troubled as a child, or grew to understand themselves that they are who they are and show it. They feel comfortable with their female side of their soul and heart that they express it by dressing in female clothing. Its almost like celebrating or supporting females and female rights in the world...except sometimes they take it a bit to far and turn it into a fetish for gay men or for males who are straight but want to dominate a guy who looks very much like a girl.

Some people and friends call me "feminine" in nature and that I have a skinny femboy body myself even though I am not a femboy. I take it as a complement ^_^, but I really dont see myself wearing tight outfits and wearing makeup. Someone ( who will remain nameless ) in the past tried that when he took me out shopping years ago, but I didn't feel right in those clothes ( nor did they fit on the southern side... )

DISCUSS? What are your takes on this? Do you want to add any points that would agree or disagree with this? You might have more knowledge or might know someone who does: artists, cross-dressers, femboys, friends of them. Any. I’m just trying to learn more about it. Im curious.

cant discuss tonight , but like one of my favorite artists is Onta, and yes you probabaly know hima nd afew others run hardbluhs, they have a FA and they're on DA. I don't know what drives people to expand the femboy in furry , but it is quite interesting, its why i like Onta's work.

This is wonderful...

Don't use the term c***boys as it is rather harsh and refers to something I think you would not like... not at all a femboy.

I would also like to add that your words on this subject make it a very important eduactional item for those males who are more feminine in nature... it helps them understand these feelings better. Which makes it to me very good that it is not a 'mature' image. Therefore you can help reach out to youths with it here who are also experiencing these same personality inclinations, even feel better about themselves. We need this especially with the tragic rash of gay teens and young adults. Had they had support or a better understanding of themselves, they might have survived. Alltogether, its both well done and educationally important.... and I'm also glad you preserved his horse snout! XD So many femboy artists reduce it to just a anime face and you loose the beauty of that horsey face. I appplaude you. :clap:

He looks so adorable in that picture ^-^ I don't see why the fandom sees most femboys as a sexual pleasure cause i mean they are adorable and i have hung out with tons of femboys (before i realized my own sexuality) in PA and i still think that they are just great friends. So to all the hornballs, please lay off a little. And to the femboys keep being cute and awesome friends

This piece reminded me of that well-known saying, "Don't judge a book by it's cover".

Thank you.
