Personal: Visibility Among Lesbians

So, I hung out a couple of nights this week at a popular lesbian(ish) bar here in town, and wow… it really made me FEEL like a lesbian —err, rather, it’s reminded me that I LOOK like a lesbian (duh, right? I know… I mean, up until fairly recently** I’d been living my life as […]

Defining: Butch

Oh, where to even begin? “Butch” —  it’s a word I’ve used to describe myself, and I certainly see it as a descriptor for my target audience here at The Butchelor (duh). But what does it mean to BE butch? WHO are the butches I’m talking to/about here? Of course, I can’t define it for […]
