Rachel Maddow and the Big "butch" LIE!

I do not know whether Maddow identifies as Butch (or some variation thereof) or not, I do know however when she was voted and listed by some "queer" morons as the "Top Butch of 2009" she didnt deny being it or set the record straight that she wasn't Butch. Even if she has never identified as Butch in all her born days (and I seriously doubt she has), because she was on this "top 100 'butch' list", general pop culture society (including general lesbians now "ignorantly believe Maddow "butch"!

A few choice pics of the "top 'butch' of 2009"...

This is the nonsense, the fucking garbage that furthers and fuels Butch Invisibility, which furthers and fuels Butch Shame which furthers and fuels Butch body dysphoria and Butch sexual shame (stoneness). Butch women, I speak to you, please speak out when you hear someone labeled Butch who isnt, set the record straight. You do not have to be on some random news program to be worthy of representing Butch, you merely have to BE Butch! So many many many sad pathetic (queer) peoples have (and continue) colonizing our identity, something they wish they could be, something we ARE, something its about fucking time WE stand up proudly and represent!

dirt-setting the fucking record straight!

  1. This woman is a perfect example of why real butch and Butch women feel so ashamed and would be more likely to take 'T'. Seems like this Maddow person has taken the advice dispensed to all butch and Butch dykes since childhood, 'just wear some make-up, do your hair nice and wear some nice women's clothes' and you'll get ahead in life and be just fine. Hello middle class privilege at its worst. She is a total sell-out and I hope that fat cheque she receives from MSNBC was enough to cover the loss of her dyke dignity.

  2. FA,

    Dykes like that dont have dignity, they have career and financial goals! She isnt interested in questioning the misogyny machine that got her where she is and where she'll go, she's only interested in getting there.

    Questioning patriarchal systems as a woman and worse as a lesbian doesnt pay well in green backs, and sadly women like Maddow are too simplistic to benefit from the riches acquired within that can only be obtained from challenging the status quo.

  3. The saddest reality in all of this is the total invisibility & passing over of the proud, out Butch woman that was relegated to #2 on the Hottest Butch 2009 list -Skyler Cooper.

    Her commanding stature, physique, her beautiful dark tattooed skin, her kissable lips and delicious face is a sight to behold. Yet, why may we ask, was she relegated to number 2 on the list? Is it because she is an African American woman? Despite her amazing beautiful out and proud Butch identity, her unforgettable presence, her ground-breaking work as an out Butch actor; she was overlooked in favour of a more "palatable" option for white middle class American queers to swallow.

    Let’s give back the #1 spot to the woman who through her gender challenging acting roles, her rejection of white fashion industry standards of beauty and 'womanhood' and for her courage to BE the hot, stunning, beautiful Butch woman that she IS.

    You are a Butch Goddess Skyler Cooper and thank you for being you and such an inspiration to so many. The Butch throne is YOURS.

  4. Rachel Maddow and Ellen is about as 'Butch' as American media is willing to go in news/talk shows. Only in some Science Fiction shows/movies have I seen women who are somewhat more 'Butch'.

    The only other very visible exception is k.d. lang, the singer, who I do consider Butch.

    I consider Ellen 'tomboy', she wears suits, and androgynous clothes, and has high femme girlfriends/partners, and Rachel androgynous, neither do I consider Femmes, but it really bothers me that Ellen is now doing constant commercials for makeup..that is incredibly unButch. I don't think mainstream media is willing to show real true blue Butches, if I want to see them, even in the Olympics, I have to look to other countries sportswomen, like Germany and the Netherlands(like Irene Wust, and some of the German athletes). IT all comes down to serious Lesbophobia, that Butches aren't 'real women', and thus that we don't deserve to be visible. k.d. lang has so much talent that they cannot deny her, but she's also Canadian, and there is more leeway with gay rights in Canada and not so much emphasis on rightwing Christianity and 'appropiate feminine appearance' as there is in the look good girly United States.

    Yep, we just get more and more invisible, everytime they depict a nonbutch woman/lesbian as one of us, or an FTM!

  5. You can't define how someone identifies. If maddow wants to define herself as butch she is the only one who can. You cannot tell her she isn't.

  6. She can define herself as a tree, doesnt make it so now does it. So lets dispense with the queer theory 101. Language had weight, meaning and a materialness grounded in reality. And the reality is, she is as far from Butch/butch as the earth the sun.

  7. I don't believe you're Butch/butch/ BUTCH/ bUTCH or futch Dirt but you call yourself so.

  8. An identity is one claimed for oneself, calling someone else something is a label. Maybe she identifies as butch but you're labelling her as a non-butch. How insulting. You need to respect others instead of spreading tyranny.

    Cool so I can call myself an african american and put in to gain access to the united negro college fund. May I have your name and address for a reference so I can say why a white woman deserves funds for the african american races?

    thanks in advance!

    Poor argument dirt because race is a label seeing that it began as something a majority used to oppress a minority. I would suggest that race as just recently - in the last 200 years or so been reclaimed as an identity, but nonetheless developed as a label, something one forced upon another.

    I identify as femme but sometimes wear jeans and Birkenstocks, am I less femme then. I suppose I won't get your vote for femme of the year
