butch is how i look..


the little book of butch - page three

about time i did another one of these … been too busy editing to draw much lately; in fact i drew this one a while back & forgot to scan it. as usual, i’ve been thinking and reading about butch a fair amount … i wish butch bloggers would update more! do they not know how hungry i am for their opinions and perceptions? *grin* seriously …

i’m still v much out of cyber-fashion, i think, continuing to reject the word “masculine” as part of my identity. i feel equally uncomfortable with “feminine.” i hold firm to my belief that gender should be liberated from society, the media and the fashion industry. visions of clothing stores filled with gently swaying racks, chanting “we are one.” i’m not saying it all needs to go unisex – i still need bras! but why are all of the other things i need labelled “men” when i don’t even need them to be marked “for humans?” ok, some clothes are cut for the presence or absence of protrusions in the chest and groin areas, but apart from that, it’s all just spin.

i don’t walk like a man – i walk like a human who’s so confident it feels the need to swagger – and no need to protect any of its genitalia.

so there.

the little book of butch – page two

i like the butch 360 project, so i signed up for it.

it’s good to see such different responses, from all over the place. i like seeing these little analyses of butch online that challenge the mainstream cyber butch presence too. you should visit and if you’re butch, you should sign up too. mkay?

and since i’m waffling on about butch, i finally got around to scanning page 2 of the little book of butch – a completely unstructured thing that happens when it happens. i haven’t done many badly drawn dykes lately, because i’ve been v busy working/writing. and you know how it is … life intrudes into online stuff lots ;)

valid thing to say eh? and interesting. and i’m really, really hoping to get some input and insight here.
