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.
