I’m not telling butches anything new when I tell them that being misgendered can be shitty, or it can be entertaining, or it can be somewhere in between. But what some of y’all may not know is that the pressure to be femme, not just to present in feminine ways or to perform femininity but to literally be femme, is extremely intense for trans women. It’s as if to be accepted as women, we have to become the very stereotypes that people expect of trans women and then degrade us for embodying. - @dykeadjacent Meet the storytellers!

Being butch opens me up to the good in people that the world offers, and closes me off from the bad. That protection comes in the form of being unknowable to certain people – men, straight women, bigots, oppressors. All of them pass the empty seat next to me on the train or in the lecture theatre. I’m either invisible to them or the target of their contempt. And to be totally honest, I like it that way. In being erased from the eyes of men, butchness opens me up to a familiarity from other lesbians. Meet the storytellers!

My sexual awakening didn’t simply arrive like a welcome basket when I checked into Hotel Dyke. It was wrong of me to assume that my newfound sexual freedom would bring orgasms by the boatload, like Oprah handing out new cars. Rather, it was a slow process to allow time for me to come into myself. It wasn’t truly until I met my now-wife that I realized that my butch identity wasn’t the clothes I wore or the presentation I gave to outsiders, but it was just who I am no matter what I look like, say, or do. All that matters is if I’m the butch I need me to be. Everything else comes naturally. @yellowonesdontstop Lacey will be reading her story from Issue 4 live at our online fundraiser event happening NEXT FRIDAY NIGHT! $5 from every ticket sold will be donated to @nationalbailout and @transjusticefp Click the link in bio to secure a spot and find out more about the event.
