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.

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

I have never liked the treatment of feminine males in the fandom..the comments rarely seem to go beyond 'hawt!' 'gaaaay' or 'it's a trap!'. >_>
And i can only imagine how much pornography they are included in..I've never wanted to be anything but feminine and cute, I don't want to be associated with all the dirty subby sex stuff.

this is quite interesting. its a good art medium, I guess, making it seem like a blog page. I think that's really clever. the content has also caused me to think a bit harder about the whole "femboy" thing and partially, my position in it all. I never really saw effeminate males as a non sexual thing until I read this, so I thank you

This picture really speaks to me. It opens up my eyes too.

The femboy community always sparked my interest. I'm a straight 19 year old boy and I've always dug how femboys accepted their beauty and bodies. I love how they celebrate their youth.
I honestly wish I looked like a femboy. Just to have that feminine beauty would be wondrous.

I can understand how it would feel to be a femboy in the South. I live in eastern Alabama. Nice people, just too closed minded >.<

Thank you for making this picture, it really helped me understand why I have a fascination with the femboy community.

This one is difficult for me. I'm fairly secure in my own sexuality, but then I am blessed with the self same thin body he wishes he had. I do not crossdress, and sometimes it makes me smile, sometimes it makes me blink, but I am often mistaken for a woman. Usualy at work, sometimes in public. a lot of times, online because of my personal views and methods of speaking. I have wide hips, a narrow waist, because I took gymnastics i have a smoother walk, more flowing. Because of my height, I tend to walk with perfect posture, because the added length of spine misaligns easier. The arch in my back is very prominent, hips tilted due to a fall when i was a child. If you ask me who I am, I simply tell people I am who you see me as.

If I were to speak to this individual, I'd let him know he has to do nothing he does not feel comfortable with. I'd share my experiences witht hings, and accept him for his views. after all, isn't it how we think of ourselves that matters?

i can point out a slight insight but nothing overly great.

i see myself in the mirror and have (on more than one occasion) noticed and felt more effeminate (one who acts, feels or appears more feminine) as i look back at myself. also, my emotional state isn't 'manly' where i have a deep voice or able to take and come back with jokes or comments that most guys do.

i grew up with my mother and younger sister, so im more inclined in knowledge about cooking, cleaning, personal looks, etc etc. im also very submissive...keeping to myself most times, in corners of parties or group events, rarely getting out of my room...that kind of thing.

i havent dressed up or worn makeup or anything like that which would 'mark' me as being a 'femboy' or anything like that, but i am more sensitive to jokes, i am more emotional, i have little physical strength or muscle...so i consider myself very close to being effeminate and as i did research, the more i am agreeing with it.

there are things i notice as well...the voice being one of them. i dont look up at people when i talk and usually look past or away from them, i speak softly and barely yell, and if i were to become gay or bi or anything of the nature, i'd be able to place the hammer on the head with a voice close to that of either side (male or female). it's difficult to admit all this because im embarassed to but i feel better in trying to help. everyone wants to be their own person, and to achieve that, they need to express themselves without fear of being judged, only then can they accept it and shrug off the 'downers'.
hope thats a little penny in the jar of thoughts :3
great work on this, it sure helped me :nod:
take care and have fun

i'm a crossdresser and what i've noticed is that it's just another part of who i am, people wouldn't guess me to be of the alternative sexualities if i'm not wearing a dress or feminine clothing, you seem to have nailed most of the femboy stuff but seriously tho, people have a really hard time putting poeple like eddy izzard(transvestite comedian) into a category or steriotype because they just don't fit

Personally I find it kinda awkward, especially since my roommate has those 'femboy' proportions and his name is Alexey (yes with a "y"). However, I don't find it suprising that people stereotype each other. He get a lot of remarks about being gay said about hikm behind his back, and being his roommate only puts me in the situation where people are asking me if I know. Then, they also get suspicious and wonder if I'm gay just because I room with the kid. Honestly, I'm not sure which way he swings, but it's not my business, and it's really no one else's. :(

I've seen a lot of femboys and they never really appear to be happy in life. It's like they can't belong to either group (men or women). They're too girly to be accepted as men and women reject them because they're obviously male. It seems like a terrible feeling to have.

It depends on what happens to them personally.
I'm replying to this comment because it's strangely accurate, I'm a femboi simply because I actually identify as both male and female equally in terms of gender, but that really isn't a problem for most people.

And actually, a lot of girls like the more feminine type of mate, instead of the stereotypical muscle-brained types that you might find otherwise. My mate is female and identifies the same way, but is just physically female.

It's unfortunate that stereotype has been created but there is good news. Not everyone thinks that way. There are some small communities in which it is perfectly acceptable to dress and act as this profile suggests. However, I do realize that even in these communities the predominant idea is that everyone is gay. Even so, these communities are more accepting and open to all types of gender bending behavior.

Interesting concept of point of view of those who people want see like sexual and they want be like any other in world.

I never look different a person unless he or she don't take respect for others or me. I never have met a person like a femboy, and I like to meet one, for exchange words, knowledge, pass time.

Yes, my typing and english isn't all great, but that is one of my point of view.

My take on the femboy community/fandom? I'm completely okay with the idea and people involved within. I don't see it as much as a sexual outlet as others make it out to be, fetishsizing it being a better term. I have often heard the term of a girl being trapped in a boy's body and vice-versa, and one of the ways they express their 'real' selves is by dressing in the opposite gender's clothes. They try to find a creative outlet to live with passion and pride in their decision, showing they aren't afraid to show who they are inside. Sure, people are going to give them hell for their decision, and there are those who live purely for the sexual thrill of it, but it can be more than just primitive needs.

It takes a lot of courage to admit to oneself that this is who and what they are. I've know people who keep it a dark secret of theirs, afraid to tell their family and friends for the fear of rejection and abuse, saying things like it's their sick habit. Some people don't realize the emotional impact this kind of decision can have on a person who decided to live this kind of lifestyle. It's not for the sexual thrill, it's more like soul searching. Like finding out who they are inside and what's the best way to make themselves feel complete and comfortable with themselves. One thing I constantly see is that most people assume all femboys are gay, but that's not completely true. They can dress themselves as such, be as feminine as they like, and still be straight. Femboys would be more likely associated with being bi, than being gay or straight. It's like having the both of both worlds for some, like herms, feeling comfortable being both a girl and a boy. Being a femboy isn't just a sexual thing, it's a way of life for some.

I'm not a femboy, so I can't say too much on it, but I don'y mind those who are. I can see where it would be hard for such a.. masculine.. animal to look fem... he does it good though. I am on the smaller side too.. by no means feminine.. I do own a pair of womens pants.. but I got them at a thrift store, and dont wear them as womens.. just pants..

This is so great, very interesting. You've done some good research, and the result is wonderfull. Everything is so well done, the characters personallity, the points, ect. It's so great so see something non-cliché - personally, I'm so tired of all the drawning of manga boys with long hair and pointy faces, which rarely are supposed to be femboys. Oh well, a bit off-topic.
Overall, this is very very great. Personally, I'm not too fond of the colours for the blog, but it may tell something about Alexei's personallity.
