  1. i think the 'queering' of the culture is the most important topic but it's probably been covered enough here
    (i just walked past a gallery putting up an exhibition called 'queer masculinity' - made me decide to post, even though i should be admiring the girls on their warm-weather clothes...)

  2. (also a girl i watched transition is on a poster promoting the 'aids walk'- that also riled me up a bit)

    ReplyDelete
  3. Why did it rile you up? Due to many lesbians that have transitioned that then began desiring gay males, there has been a fair percent of trans(men) getting HIV.

  4. that's true- i just hated watching her go from interesting gay woman to strangely proportioned quickly-aged gay man in front of my eyes (worked at local store) not that she's unkind at all but, i don't know, it just offends me to the core... i can't help it (right, trolls, just like she can't possibly help turning into whatever she's become)

  5. That's the phallacy you all perpetuate- that someone is interesting when they present as female, but suddenly become less interesting after they transition. You can assume he was willing to relinquish the prize of being interesting to you to experience himself with the physicality he desired. Right off the bat. But there is something else going on here and I think I smell bullshit. People fetishize butch lesbians because they are "interesting" but in fact they are not. Or they may be as people but it's not because they are butch. And I think some of you lesbos out there are getting into relationships based on the exotification of physically gender non-conforming people. Watch out for that- people do that to us too.

  6. And who are these "people" who "fetishize" Butches? 43 years as one and very much a part of the Butch/Femme community for 20+ years and I have yet to meet any of these folks.

  7. i didn't think she was interesting because she was 'butch' but because she was a woman who didn't seem to feel compelled to conform - little did i know she was just on the way to forced malehood
    then there were several more i watched transition in the same store and learned that if someone has short hair and no make up in that place it's most likely a 'male brain'- long hair and make up- a female. progressive!

  8. Let's discuss how you betray womankind and destroy feminism by living with a man? Are you really, truly a feminist, a sister? Are you even a lesbian? Do you sleep with this man? Do you take joy in making sandwiches for him? Dirt, let's discuss how you say one thing and do another.

  9. Really Dirt? Because if your thinking wasn't so repellent to intelligent and emotionally secure femmes, I could introduce you to a whole lot of beautiful ones who LOVE LOVE LOVE butches. Especially older ones.

    Unfortunately, there is nothing quite as unattractive as a person so insecure and hate-filled that they have to try and destroy some other category of people. Believe me, I have dated some of these women and they complain about ex-girlfriends who wouldn't stop ranting about ftm's. Transparent, AND BORING! These women were compassionate people, but having to be supportive to the exclusion of a real relationship is bullshit. Nobody wants to be a fucking cheerleader for their partner's gender all the time, no matter if they are trans or butch. Many of these aforementioned women date ftm's, because although we sometimes have issues, we are also doing something about them other than hating people.

  11. "little did i know she was just on the way to forced malehood"

    Forced malehood? Have you asked him who forced him to transition? No, of course not. Why risk knowing a person and confronting your own prejudice when you can make conjecture about their victimization?

  12. "Sorry not interested, I'm dating a wonderful Femme right now."

    Pics or it didn't happen. Tits or gtfo.

  13. I dated 3 butches in my past and boy let me tell you, all 3 were dirt bags. All they cared about was themselves and no one else. It was always, me, me, me. I have nothing against butches by any means and never have.

  14. I see in California that a convicted killer (of a woman) is going to get MtF surgery, etc. (courtesy of the taxpayers) and get sent to a women's prison for "her" protection. All because "she" would be at risk in a men's prison.

    But isn't this special treatment? What about all the other young, slightly built, or "attractive" men wo are sent to men's prisons, both gay or straight? Really, any guy who is less than big and ultra macho. Don't they deserve protection from predators and rapists in the prisons? And a lot of them are not in prison for murder either, but for drugs or property crimes.

    And what about the safety of the women at the women's prison?

    When we're told that people can't get kidney or liver transplants anymore because it's "too expensive," why are we indulging convicted killer transexuals?

    ReplyDelete
  15. @Anon 11:39 PM....How is that special treatment? If she is a male to female transsexual then yeah she should go to a woman's prison because she is and identifies as a woman. How hard is that to comprehend? No matter who she killed male or female, it doesn't matter. If it was a biological female it wouldn't matter that she killed a female but since she is MTF it's a big deal to you. I don't get it.

    I may not be trans but I fully understand their situation and the hardships they have to go through and all.

    All the young slightly or attractive men in prisons aren't transgendered so what is your point?

  16. Discussion topic for FTM partners only: "why do you partner with transftm?"

    ReplyDelete
  17. Because I love my man. I don't care that he is trans. I don't identify as straight or lesbian and never have. I fall in love with the person and not what is down their pants. I don't judge people for who and what they are. I fell in love with my trans guy for who he is. He is an awesome guy and I love him for who he is. I have never felt so loved in my life until he walked into my life. We are each others soul mates. He is passionate and with anyone else he couldn't be. He is caring and sweet, loving, romantic, humorous, outgoing yet shy at the same time, fun to be around, a comedian, compassionate, very spiritual (Christian), respects life, respects his family, loves his friends, he's an animal lover, smart, witty, gorgeous, handsome, a threat to no one, loves life, and so on and so on...he is just an amazing guy and I love him and he loves me.

    I know you are gonna sit and put him down or put our relationship down but oh well, so be it. We are going on our 4th year together and we both have never been happier before.

    ...what's yours?

  23. It is very possible for someone to be in a actual happy relationship with someone who is transgender. If they did break up it wouldn't prove anything, people beak up.

  24. "I'm dating a wonderful Femme right now."

    Wonder how many times you have said that..

  25. I look forward to the day when this blog is about Butch pride, and not trans hate, and not making those two concepts synonymous.

    ReplyDelete
  26. If you actually read the blog, you will see its clearly about female pride period.

  27. Bit of false advertising on your header graphic then, eh? ;)

  28. Why would being a proud Butch stop me, a female from writing about females?

    dirt

  29. "and not trans hate"

    You didn't read the blog at all do you?
    It's so pathetic that you can't critizise the transkult without bigots screaming: "Trans hate!, transphobia!" They just can't take criticque but their endless whining will not stop people.
