Androgyny is the combination of masculine and feminine characteristics. For humans, "androgyne" is one term for a person who does not fit neatly into the typical masculine and feminine gender roles of their society. The term "androgynous" is often used to refer to a person whose look or build make determining their gender difficult, but is generally not used to describe actual intersex, transgender or Two Spirit people. Sometimes people who do not identify as androgynes adapt their physical appearance to look androgynous, often as a fashion statement. For example, in the 1920s, female flappers often cultivated slim and "boyish" figures and cut their hair short to appear more androgynous.
