Effeminacy is the manifestation of traits in a boy or man that are more often associated with feminine behavior, mannerism, style, or gender roles rather than with masculine behavior, mannerisms, style or roles. It is typically used implying criticism or ridicule of this behavior as opposed to merely describing a man as feminine. Another Latin term is mollities , meaning 'softness'.

This term has been borrowed from the Greek kinaidos which may itself have come from a language of Ionian Greeks of Asia Minor , primarily signifying a purely effeminate dancer who entertained his audiences with a tympanum or tambourine in his hand, and adopted a lascivious style, often suggestively wiggling his buttocks in such a way as to suggest anal intercourse
