5'4" here. Short and Stocky. Agree with the muscle and fat comments in this thread in regards to short people.
As for me I can understand the OP's position. I am the most empathetic of all my male friends. I have a strong nurturing/caretaking side that I
express with taking care of my houseplants. I have long hair well beyond my shoulders, which I probably use more conditioner and Pantene on than 99
percent of the female population, to maintain my natural banana curls. My hair looks effeminate. I've even had guys hit on me at a bar when my back
was turned only to turn around and see the look of shock on their drunk faces when they realize I'm a man. I could qualify as a semi feminine
However, I have shoulders like a juvenile sasquatch. Curl 3 sets of 12 at 95lbs on the barbell (again I'm 5,4) and easily rep out 200 on the
bench. Studied extensively Philippine and south east Asian martial arts, and nobody, nobody looks at me as some sissy. Even though I'm like "not
the hair" when I rough house with my friends. Also, even though my friends are all much taller than me, they look to me when were out on the town as
the enforcer or defender when a bar fight or street altercation starts to brew. They all sorta back up and get behind me to push me to the front to
deal with the person getting aggressive. And my friends aren't pussies either. They are all pretty tough guys. Half of them doing well in the
Even though I'm a Wildman, I would consider myself a semi feminine male. I like flowers, bright pastel colors (not as clothing, just the colors),
cooking, art, can tell a womans clothing size accurately without asking, get choked up in movies and with emotional songs, but I also have a mean
right hook, know how to use chainsaws and jack hammers with proficiency.
SO I do believe there is such a thing as a balanced male who does have some feminine aspects to their personality. I don't think it's healthy to
swing too far to either side though. Overly macho guys are compensating for something.
