    • No need to fret about your voices, ladies! I'm sure you all sound great. All women from all walks of life can have deeper voices. Including myself. When I went through puberty, I remember my voice cracking for a while, then it sounded deeper. All people go through voice changes to varying degrees. And some genetic women have higher levels of testosterone since birth and puberty (myself included), creating deeper voices than the typical, high-pitched female or ultra-femme female. Personally--not just because I have one--I think lower-pitched voices in women are sexier, connotes a higher level of intelligence, and is more tolerable to the human ear (a high-pitched voice can get annoying and grating).

      Last June I went to my grandfather's funeral (he lived to 93!) and my brother (the middle child; I have two older brothers) who I hadn't seen in a long time, one of the first things he said to me was that my voice sounded deeper.  I felt a little self-conscious, so I blurted out, yours sounds higher!  He actually didn't get offended and said yeah, I always get ma'am when I talk to someone on the phone.  So for the rest of the day and the day after I tried talking in a higher pitched voice, but of course I can't do that long term, so I went back to my usual voice.  My voice sounds similar to Lisa Marie Presley, here:

      From http://gloriousnoise.com/2003/lisa_marie_presley_wont_smile: "See, that’s the shocking thing about Lisa Marie Presley. She’s a girl singer who doesn’t do girl things. She hardly ever smiles, and she speaks in a low voice. Those two facts alone make her seem like a fascinating, subversive rebel. In an era of ubiquitous squealy-high speaking voices, Lisa Marie’s low, unexcited tones and stony deadpan come across as almost insolent. But she’s not unfriendly, just terminally unsurprisable."

      A couple of months ago in April, a genetic woman (Elizabeth Holmes, self-made billionaire and CEO of Theranos) was giving an interview on TV and she sounded like a man!  In fact, I accidentally blurted out, is that a man?! Very wrong of me, I know. My hand is out, okay now everyone grab a ruler and stand in line and take turns slapping my hand with it! Bad me! No, she is a GG, and a prime example that there is a grey area to what constitutes masculine or feminine voices:

      I mimicked her voice perfectly and quite easily (and even made it go deeper than hers) and my husband gave me a look and shook his head side to side and said, not all women can do that, making their voices so low and "bass-y." I then gave him a fake Melanie Griffith voice and he said that's better.  I gave him a playful slap on the shoulder.  He doesn't mean it (I don't think!) In fact, I told him he needs to speak in a higher pitched voice, his super-deep bass-pitched voice is rubbing off on me!  I'm around him more than anyone else, so I end up deepening my voice even more, not good!

      What does your voice sound like? Which celebrity do you most resemble? Overall, are you happy/content with your voice? Or is it something you don't think about or care about?

    • I wrote the above title because when you search Elizabeth Holmes deep voice online, one site said "she's got a deeper voice than most dudes" and another comment/site said that they wanted to bend her over [sick, expletive, perverse words]. So many people online are rude, sick, and demented. But back to the title, it's true, some men have high-pitched voices like my brother, and many other get ma'am on the phone, for example when I worked for a doctor for a short time in the Army (I was an army medical specialist for three years) on speaker phone he would always always always get ma'am, I'd feel bad for him. So yes, she has a deeper voice than many men!

    • An eye opening article on high T women (hair growth, deep voice, masculine jawline)...I copy and pasted a part about voice...I will be discussing hairlines and jawlines in my next forum post, so keep an eye out: http://www.newtimes.co.rw/section/article/2015-04-16/187883/:

      He says that the differences can be very noticeable, or they can even be subtle, but in most cases they are noticed during puberty. For example, a girl can develop a very deep voice as a result of having high level of hormones.

      “A girl’s vocal cords grow a bit during puberty but when the testosterone hormones tend to be too much, then the voice grows deeper. Some may even develop a husky voice as a result of smoking or drinking, but this is just a consequence of a habit,” Sindabimenya says.

    • Another great example is when I introduced my husband to the music group Yaz (Yazoo as they are known in their home country of England). He said, "I like his voice," and I said, "it's a her!" Alison Moyet! If you don't know them, listen to "Situation," "Only You," "Don't Go," and why my husband could have gotten confused, "Mr. Blue." I'm Mr Blue, I'm here to stay with you, and no matter what you do, when you're lonely, I'll be lonely too..."

      And what about the great incomparable Annie Lennox, beautiful solo artist and lead singer of The Eurythmics? Both have gorgeous, masculine-sounding voices that are very pleasing to the ear. They are legends in my eyes...
