wait if there is compulsory femininity then
wait… if there is compulsory femininity
then this means that being butch is necessarily resistance to this
and then this means that butches are inherently more radical/revolutionary than femmes
this sounds EXACTLY LIKE the typical white discourse around gender and masculinity
(both queer and not-queer)
obviously butches are more valuable bc of their revolutionary expression and resistance to compulsory femininity…
this means we ought to centre them in our discourse and spaces!
