Femme Desire-For the Love of Butch Pussy-a Guest post

When did Femme become something besides a lesbian?  We took on 'Femme' before the word lesbian was something positive.  Femme is the root of the lesbian movement as we know it and the two words are synonymous Femme=Lesbian.
During the 40's and 50's Butches and Femmes stood up for women and our right to be out in public.  We held hands and were seen on the streets; we met in bars and danced in the dark.  We were the women who risked everything to make a change in the world, our rights, women's rights.
During the 70's and 80's it was no longer politically correct to be lesbian and Femme.  Some of us hid, others dressed more androgynous and yet some were not willing to give up being Femme.
During the 90's something queer happened.  All of a sudden Femmes were not longer Lesbians, we were either queer or straight.  How did this happen?  How did Femmes become straight?  How did we become stonefemmes incapable of making love to our lovers?  Is this something that happened around the same time that being a fake lesbian and making out with girls became trendy and fashionable?
What does it mean to us Lesbian Femmes today when the Butches that you are after no longer desire a lesbian and go for the straight woman instead?
How much and how long can a Femme suffer as our Butch lovers take away our hands from their female bodies?
No longer can we keep quiet about our Femme desire for a Butch woman.  No longer can we pretend that what we really want is a man.  No longer will Femme sexuality be seen as a straight sexuality.  Let the Lesbian desire that we feel as Femmes fill this page, our conversations, no longer will we keep quiet.
