Kinkly explains Androgyny, Androgynous

Androgyny is used to describe an individual or thing that displays both masculine and feminine characteristics. It does not clearly appear to be male or female. This term implies the recognition of a gender dichotomy and traditional gender roles and demonstrates characteristics of both while not conforming to either. Roles can be described as being androgynous when there is no clear division in the traditional sense. A marriage where the traditional roles are not observed might be referred to as being an androgynous marriage.
