BUTCH 3: So while SOME Butches imitate het roles to a T, there are NO society wide social mores to enforce this. She walks out her front door she can be a victim of a hate crime, or ignored, derided, made fun of, threatened, dismissed, not hired, never promoted, rarely seen in media or acknowledged, dismissed by gay males unless she kowtows to them and so much more.
I am SICK of Feminists, especially het feminists comparing THEIR oppression from men WHICH IS ENFORCED SOCIETY WIDE, to us Butches and having ANY say so over Lesbian sexuality. It is no wonder that long ago many Butches did not want to get politically involved with the Lesbian Feminist community, though there were MANY MANY BUTCHES OF ALL STRIPES at Michfest. Even the type that can "pass" as men, whether naturally hirsute or from their hard masculine look...WHO ARE NOT FTMS. Who are still Female deep in their souls AND ONLY THERE did they feel safe coming out from their camoflage and REVEALING THEMSELVES in a place they felt safe...until women started ASSUMING they were FTM instead of the Amazons they are...women who hide in the society at large because they would be threatened if they did fully reveal themselves.
There are MANY MANY VARIED FORMS OF WOMONHOOD..FROM ULTRA BUTCH, TO HIGH FEMME AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN. Like the color palette and the Goddess of 10,000 Names whom I worship, womonhood is VAST AND VARIED with many different aspects from Warrior to Lover, Great Mother, Amazon, Lady of the Wild Beasts in the Woods, to Healer AND SO MUCH MORE.
Contracting what ANY Female can do or be, or how she is permitted to appear and express herself LIMITS US ALL and is anti-Feminist. Our lives have been limited enough BY MEN and their patriarchal systems!!!!
And I want EVERY Female to be free to be who she is...down to her soul...so that NONE EVER feel the pressure to transition to male! And she can be FULLY in her Power AS A FEMALE!!!THAT is my life's Work as a Butch DykeAmazon Warrior/Witch!!!
