Butches Who Doubt You're Gay(ness)
I was just curious if any of you have ever encountered what I will call "butch or boi disbelief" in your queerness, because you looked too straight. It's one thing for straight men and women to not believe that I am gay, but when I have people in my own queer community describe me as NOT GAY enough because I lean toward appearing heteronormative on the outside, I feel very annoyed an alienated. I am also a femme for femme. I don't think everyone should perscrive to this type of relationship, but just because I find other femmes attractive doesn't mean that I hate butches or do not appreicate everything they have contributed to the gay community. Also, just because I like other femmes does it mean that I am a sell out to the Patriarchy. I often see cute boi dykes with other boi dykes, and I don't discriminate.
