It is not my job to be attractive to you. I am here to be me. Me doesn't shave, has short hair, and doesn't wear makeup. In other words, I care about my appearance as much as you care about yours as a male. This isn't social corruption, it is my natural state. Men and women are not massively different creatures who must adhere to massively different rules when it comes to appearance or anything else. We are essentially the same. Ahem. Anyway.
The guys I know are impressed by cosplay skill and don't seem to care about the sex of the person unless it's a dude doing a particularly good job of passing.
