I need to post about this nightmare era of the scariest of 21st Century science fiction, where they're giving women shots who are pregnant to eliminate the possibility of an 'androgynized' baby who might end up becoming a Lesbian, Butch or FTM...but another elimination of Butch Dyke tactic.....so the girls would want to have babies, worship men and marry them..instead of refuse, grow up as hardcore tomboys and become Butches...just read the article this week...anything to get rid of us Butches.
I believe in REAL gender fluidity. The kind that doesn't require shots, hormones or surgeries....but I especially believe in women, including Butches LIVING AS THE WOMEN WE ARE, and expressing ourselves in MANY different ways, AS WOMEN, that is often heavily repressed in patriarchal cultures. Us Butches show other women that you CAN live outside the box, like the ancient Amazons did. Like the Joan of Arcs, and those who had to pass as male to marry another woman, or to be a writer, a soldier, an artist, a full human being, when women's roles were so heavily constrained.
You're right, it's not 'genderfluid' to then go and conform to the opposite sex's 'rules' from haircuts FTMs are supposed to get that are conservative masculine, to conservative masculine dress, not tank tops and jeans, cuz they could be mistaken as Butch Dykes, ect.......or that there are organizations like Tri Ess for MTF's to appear, talk and act like properly submissive, obedient, sexually revealing soft spoken females in highly feminized clothing, while they could be 6 ft 2" and have linebacker shoulders and very masculine faces they have to cover in tons of makeup, giving themselves away, with their platinum blonde hair..that is NOT 'genderfluid' either. It's conformity.
Both conform. Because if they don't they are so terribly afraid they could be 'outed' as the falsities they are. Genderfluid is can appear as either sex, but in a celebratory way..one day you're in a suit and tie, the next in skirt and heels, with a beard or drag....or so inbetweener you're hard to read as either male or female, a combination of a bit of both(and there are fine boned individuals like that who are indeed hard to read), but they're being just themselves, and playing with their gender presentations, not hiding who they are, like the whole transitioning industries expect....properly stereotypically masculine or properly stereotypically feminine behavior....which is learned, false, and faked. They're all patriarchal social constructs anyway....I say do away with the social constructs, and get REAL about exactly WHO you are...and the real truth is the biological one...the rest is all show and a smokescreen to fool us! But us Dykes know, we're not as easily fooled, and that's why we're hated!
You can't pull the wool over our eyes so easily!
