Interesting thing, this gender-related behavior is. How much of it is socialization and how much of it is truly hormonal? We've all seen pretty aggressive, typically male behavior, being demonstrated by women as well as tender, gentle caring, typically female behavior demonstrated by men. Irrespective of their physical characteristics, are these people "feminized" or "masculinized"? Would it mean more or less if the masculinized woman appeared ultra feminine and vice-versa?
I'm a very masculine, heterosexyal male who has always been very empathic, meaning that I easily feel others' emotions. When opportunity is there for me to be comforting and caring to anyone, male and female, I take it. My offers have often surprised the recipients, never been rejected and usually bring about strong and appreciative responses. I think society is desparate for caring and sensitive men.
