One of my butch friends is a “They” now. A couple years ago we went to pride and I remember her specifically saying she’s happy to be a butch woman and she likes her breasts. I don’t know what has changed since then but I think the queer stuff has gotten really outrageous. She used to be a happy butch and now she doesn’t feel comfortable calling herself a woman. It seems crazy that women over 30 years old will fall for this stuff but I guess that’s just how strong misogyny is. I wish it was ok to have pride in being female.
Idk how to explain it but it’s like you can’t be in the middle anymore. A lot of people I know have gotten either super femme or super butch. And the ones that were butch originally are now non binary or they don’t even think they’re women anymore. Overall I think lesbians have become less feminist than they used to be. I guess that’s because everyone has a gender identity now, so everyone has a role to play and nobody criticizes what the roles are.
