Definition - What does Gynemimetophilia mean?

Gynemimetophilia refers to the intense romantic or sexual attraction to males who look, act, and dress like women. The object of attraction does not need to identify as transgender. He may just be a cross-dresser. The stimulant of desire is often visual, aural, or tactile. Gender identity and politics sometimes come secondary.

Kinkly explains Gynemimetophilia

Critics have differing opinions about gynemimetophilia. Some think that it is a psychiatric disorder, which requires professional diagnosis and management. This view has negative implications on transgender lives. Others want to remove the stigma that comes with gynemimetophilia as this can also remove the stigma and bias against transgender women.
