Androsexuality is attraction to male identified people or masculinity. This term allows for naming what one finds attractive without using gendered language. This is especially useful for describing people who exist outside the gender binary such as those who identify as genderqueer. It is also useful when addressing intersex and transgender people.
More About Androsexuality
The term androsexuality is often used by people who identify as queer and do not feel comfortable with the terms "heterosexual" or "homosexual" because those terms indicate attraction to opposite or same same partners. Androsexuality allows for identification when one or both partners identifies outside of a gender binary.
