create implication bishounen -> androgynous

There will probably be some tiny example I didn't consider in which this may not fit (which I'm unaware of, if this is the case), but "bishounen" is used when men have androgynous traits. I feel this implication is fitting for the reason that a male must have "androgynous beauty" in order to be considered a bishounen.

This isn't the same as otoko no ko.

Bishonen is basically "beautiful boy", so there are cases where they are androgynous, but the two concepts are not related enough for the implication to be needed. A male doesn't necessarily need to be androgynous to be bishonen, and girls can be androgynous as well.
