Come join The Butch Women's Adoration Club

The lovely Femme Avenger has begun her own blog for Butch women and the women that love them. Her first post thus reads: 

 * Are you sick of the constant barrage of mistreatment towards 'Butch' and 'butch' women within our communities (GLBTQ, Butch/Femme) and from the general community, the medical community and every other community and scholarship that shames or renders invisible Butch and butch women, their lives, their desires, their bodies and their lived experiences?
* Are you sick of having to attach the word "woman" to the end of Butch or butch in order to differentiate between the myriad of other ‘genderqueer’ identities colonizing butch identity?
* Are you sick and tired of having to listen to appropriations of male pronouns, names, behaviours and eroticising male bodies or neutralized/neutered female bodies as the ideal or superior embodiment of Butch and butch?
* Are you disgusted that it is ‘ok’ to ask a Butch or butch woman ‘when are you going to transition’?
* Are you disgusted by the behaviour of self identified 'queer femme' types that openly say "yuck" to the idea of sexually pleasuring/touching/licking/sucking Butch and butch women's bodies and shame Butch and butch women into a 'stone' sexuality?
* Are you dying to find all the chest binders, gather them in a huge pile and burn them to dust?
* Do you want to see Gender Identity Disorder (GID) removed from the DSM?
* Are you sick of all the terminologies such as "gender variant", "gender queer", "gender non-conformist", "female masculinity" used to erase the woman/the female and attempt to explain Butch and butch as a location on the journey to transgender/FTM?
* Are you sick of all the academic career queers writing Butch women out of the feminist and history books?
* Are you someone that loves Butch or butch women; that lives to love them, their bodies, their hot female essence and their ‘womanly swagger’?

If you are a Butch or butch woman, or this sounds like you (i.e., a Femme Lesbian, butch-on-butch, butch loving dyke, or Butch/butch lovin feminist sister), then welcome.

If devoted/committed to the preservation of Butch/butch girls/women then please join here.
