Feminization, as the term implies, is the conscious effort to adapt feminine traits. It is trying to transform from male to female through adapting the latter’s behavior, speech, actions among other things. It is a bold expression of breaking gender standards for personal satisfaction.
A typical example of feminization is cross-dressing. This is where men wear women’s clothing and accessorize themselves with feminine things so as to obtain the appearance of a female. It has become a popular practice among transsexuals; especially now that we live in a world with fewer inhibitions.
A more aggressive practice of feminization is through availing of the expertise of medical experts and the like for actual physical transformation. Some examples are introducing female hormones to the male body so as to allow bodily changes that could make him look more feminine.
Other popular practices are Forced Feminization and Hypnotic feminization. In forced feminization, the male is forced to become feminine in behavior, appearance and acts usually by a female. This is to illustrate and exaggerate a certain form of dominance of the female towards the opposite sex.
