Femininity Tropes

For royal ladies** , there is nothing wrong with looking pretty and elegant.

"I stand for poofy dresses, flowers, ribbons, and all that is girlie!"

While "feminine" simply means "any attribute associated with women", culturally, the term tends to encompass things like beauty, grace, elegance, and the ways women are often expected to carry themselves. Unfortunately, the latter often involves things like demureness and timidness, which has also led to women being expected to be weak. Yet that isn't always the case. In both Real Life and fiction, it's sometimes accepted that women can be feminine, yet still strong.

And, of course, some women take advantage of these associations.

Regardless of the exact form (such as whether one is "girly" or "mature"), these are the tropes about femininity.
