Answer: The general answer given by everyone asked is that they (the women in question) are not dressing that way to seem manly; it is simply the way they dress for comfort.

This is exactly the way I feel."(Source: Reddit community members)

Answer 1: Gay Chevara: "Probably around 11 years old or so when I would get crushes on male friends of mine. It would get increasingly awkward because I felt a special attraction to certain male friends of mine, but never felt any attraction towards girls except to acknowledge that some girls looked nicer than others, but there was no sexual desire or inclination to "make a move" on them".

Answer2: Aslan WRP: "I was very young when I can remember my first "feelings" but didn't have a vocabulary or framework to describe it. It wasn't until I was in my teens that I began to experiment and had my first actual experience. I know it was just the "normal" boy-to-boy curiosity for them [but] to me, it was emotional and so fulfilling.
