    The androsexual flag.

    Androsexual is a sexual orientation with several possible definitions.

    Androsexual may be synonymous with masexual. This definition describes exclusive attraction to men. This label does not specify the androsexual individual's own gender identity, which means that heterosexual women, gay men, and non-binary individuals attracted to men may be considered androsexual.

    Androsexual may be synonymous with mascsexual. This definition describes attraction to individuals with masculine gender presentations, regardless of their gender identity.

    Androsexual may describe attraction "male anatomy" regardless of the target individual's gender identity. This definition is often considered transphobic/genitalist as it reduces individuals to their genitals. Attraction that is influenced by anatomy is generally considered a sexual preference rather than a sexual orientation, and individuals who identify with this definition may find the label imprisexual to be a less transphobic alternative. This definition is sometimes referred to as "androphilia", however this term is outdated.

    The femaric equivalent of androseuxal is gynesexual. The romantic equivalent is androromantic.


    The term was possibly made with non-binary or genderqueer individuals in mind. However, many non-binary individuals prefer terms like minsexual, mascic, toric, viramoric, or masexual to describe this attraction, because androsexual has no agreed upon definition, which can make it's usage confusing, and it can have unfavorable connotations. The term androsexual is commonly used by transphobic people as a reason to exclude transgender men because they are only attracted to "male anatomy" or "real men". Under this definition it reduces individuals to their genitalia, putting cisgender men and pre-surgery/transine transgender women in the same group because they have "male anatomy". The prefix andro- means "man" or "male," which may imply that one sees "male anatomy" and being a man as interchangeable.


    An alternate flag was created on by ThatOneKnows. The blue stripe in the middle represents those of the male gender ;The green and purple stripes at the end represent non-binary individuals who present masculinity; The transitioning stripes to the central blue stripe represent trans men.
