Looking for Butch Women of Colour

Introducing The Butch Caucus

Take a break from your lusting and hit me up. I’m a Butch of Colour. Panamanian and Black. Looking for the chill set of Butch cats. I’m creating a huge clique in 10 cities. The real L word.. Strictly for friendship and crew. Butches don’t link enough. I want friends who get it. Who I don’t have to front for or explain the way I naturally am to. And I know there’s a need. This isn’t for the drama kings. This is for masculine women who are seeking community and loyalty in their friends. I hope the Butch Caucus can be that. I was trying to set an escort service too. But we can talk about all that. Be cute, confident, smart and driven.

Check out the blog. Send me a profile. Make a comment.




Did you see this on craigslist or other queer social network somewhere?

What am I doing ? The better question is what do I want to do ?

There's so much really. First and foremost I want to create a space for butch/dom/AG/agressive/stud WOMEN of colour to commune. To chat about light and heavy sh*t. This is NOT the space for TransMen. This is a masculine womens space. No diss to the trans community but there are legions of women who are masculine and that is the stigma and the strength that we are drawing from. There are alternative communities for addressing Trans items. There might even be a conversation about transitioning that comes up but we will be able to have that in the saftey and company of other Butch Women of Colour.

That said. I will be addressing:

Health
Safe Sex
Sex
Abuse
Finances
Dating
Eating Well
Working out
Top Surgery - Breasts Who needs 'em
The Trans issue
Barbers and Hair
Fashion
Relationships
Monogamy, Polyamory, et al

Hay!!! So I came across your listing about "Looking for Butch Women of Colour" and am interested in being apart of an "L Word" crew. I thought I was 1 of few that looked for that support of friends that are drama free and plan on doing something w/themselves (can’t find people like that now a days). Being a 23y/o "butch" (as society calls it) its hard to find good people on the same leave as me (although they say they are) that Love Jones phunk in ur right thigh, Floetry listening, Nuyorican Poets Cafe going, dread havin light skin Jamaican/Haitian, again I say DRAMA FREE HAVIN individual.

Anyway all that to say, I wanna be down with your crew and make this happen. Hit me up let me know whats going on my email address is jroude143@hotmail.com . Hope to hear from u soon. Peace.

I remember someone saying to me that trans is the new butch. And I thought about the strength it takes to walk the line between femaleness and masculinity and be butch. To occupy a space that is still considered problematic and misunderstood by so many. Hairy wimmin? No. Hairy trans men on T. Yes. Deep voiced, assertive wimmin? No. Deep voiced, assertive trans men. Yes. Wimmin of colour in men's clothes without a trace of make-up or femme accessories to dilute the look? No. Trans men wearing masculine attire. Of course.

I believe that there is a continuum of masculinities that can include femmey hetero men, flaming fags, bears, drag kings, trans men, little boy dykes, androgynous lesbians and butches. There are more spaces obviously, but all I'm saying is that only a few of these spaces are considered allowable for human females to occupy and still define as female not male. In times past, we've been allowed a lot more space to explore gender, to bend it and fuck with it. Right now, especially for wimmin of color, the pendulum has swung to an odd sort of femininity even for dykes, which I position as very different than femme identity that is queered. There doesn't seem to be a lot of space for butches to assert all of who they are without automatically considering identifying as trans.

For me it has been a personal and political project to remain an outsider on the insdie. Yet, my deliberate attempt at androgyny has failed me as I am readily perceived as a femme because of what I wear but how I feel on the inside is neither femme nor butch.

Thus, if Femme gender, like Butch, is not solely an expression of fashion, but energy from within how can one who wishes to remain outside the butch-femme dichotomy love someone who deos identify?

How can a nondescript lesbian who does not wish to ascribe to or identify understand a woman who does identify as butch?

Any words of advice or reflection..?

nice to hear someone with enough initiative to pull more butches together. i went on vacation in LA recently and was scared to go out because i heard the lesbian bars were mostly femmes. Thankfully it wasn't too bad, a kick ass bartender hooked me up with a list of spots to hit.

i love femmes, friends & dating them; but i adore the solid comradery of other butches, at least when they're not breaking out full-on "jealous alpha butch" personas. I identify as female, butch and damn proud. I love my transgender buds but that's not me, and everytime i hear that crap about women should only be with real women, i damn near want to scream.

sides i need find someone who's not a guy, who can pound a beer with at a ball game that i won't sleep with. lol

Hola!

I just saw this listing as I scour the internet in search of businesses who cater to butch women's clothing needs... now that I finished with grad school and now need a suit where I can look good and queer and still keep my butch identity.

Keep me in your blog loop--Los Angeles is in da house!

Excellent! Most excellent! So, very happy to find you here. I am an African American butch living in northern CA. I feel it's critical, particularly at this time, that butches continue their courageous walk through this patriarchal, misogynist world of ours, that tempts us to hate and despise ourselves because we are female.

For those masculine females who not only do not find dissonance in their female bodies and their masculine gender identities, but instead display and experience the most profound strength in that exquisite queer beauty, I say Ache!
We are an ancient archetype -- we are warriors! Stay fierce, strong, and positive. Trust and you will have Divine protection. We have much to offer, the world has much to learn from us.
peace & blessings
