HOW MALE ANDROPHILIA IS PUBLICALLY EXPRESSED VARIES CROSS-CULTURALLY
As should be evident from the discussion above, the manner in which male androphilia is publically expressed varies across cultures (Murray, 2000).
In some cultures, transgendered male androphilia is linked to particular institutionalized labour practices, which often involve specialized religious activities.
Both sex-gender congruent and transgendered male androphilia may occur within a given culture, but typically one or the other tends to predominate (Whitam, 1983).
SOME CORRELATES OF MALE ANDROPHILIA REOCCUR CONSISTENTLY ACROSS DIVERSE CULTURES
Quantitative research indicates that the sex-gender congruent and transgendered forms of male androphilia share numerous developmental and biodemographic correlates that appear to be cross-culturally invariant.
The researchers found that transgendered male androphilia (male sexual attraction to adult males) is an ancestral phenomenon and was accepted by many communities.
We conclude that the ancestral human sociocultural environment was likely conducive to the expression of the transgendered form of male androphilia," the researchers wrote in their (http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs12110-013-9182-z) report , named Male Androphilia in the Ancestral Environment.
