Why are Korean boys effeminate?

Even if you've come in contact with effeminate Korean males, that does not mean they are doing anything wrong and does not mean all Korean males are effeminate. You shouldn't generalize a people based on actions of a few others who are similar to them; that can be perceived as ignorance, racism, or stereotyping if done.

There are many reasons males of any race are effeminate; some is to do with their sexual orientation while others are to do with their upbringing and who they hang around and yet others that feel they are just being who they truly are.
