"Masculinity is a trait, not a gender"

In an effort to both allocate space for and document the existence of masculine women, photographer Meg Allen created a powerful series of portraits for an exhibit at Cafe Gabriela in Oakland, Calif.

Entitled BUTCH, Allen’s series not only represents genderqueer women for a broader, heteronormative audience, but reaffirms butch identity within the queer community at a time when “butch flight,” or gender transitioning, is arguably becoming more and more commonplace. It is, as Allen says on her website, “an homage to the bull-daggers and female husbands before me, and to the young studs, gender queers and bois who continue to bloom into the present.”

These are some good looking folks

This is all I have ever wanted to see. My butch friends may sometimes get “Why don’t you just become a man?” in the same way folks would tell me “Why don’t you just be a butch lesbian?” Because masculinity and gender identity are two totally separate bubbles, that for some become a venn diagram, and for others, coexist peacefully inside of us.

Two things can exist independently, and coexist peacefully. Gender identity and masculinity/femininity/androgyny.








reblog this if you think that mitsuhiko is plotting against everyone and cant be trusted

Nah. I think that the true lider of the Black Organization is Genta.

Come on, his “family” owns a…

All of you guys are mistaken, Ano Kata is all three if them, obviously. The brains (Mitsuhiko), the brawn (Genta), and the true leader/cute girl (Ayumi). Making it seem like one person is just a diversion from the truth.

Can you guys tell my English is becoming horrible?
I’m reading through my blog and I keep shuddering. I know it has horrible grammar, but I have no idea how to correct it. What, with having learned six other languages, English is just confusing me.
I even have a slight accent now—mostly Hispanic, though.
But still.
It’s pissing me off.

I’m pansexual.
I just needed a little extra research to make sure that the definition of pansexual is the actual definition I was looking for.
It’s going to be so annoying to explain to people whom don’t understand, though. I know so many people who thought pansexuality was affection toward animals (cats, dogs, rabbits, etc.).
Not that I blame them, though. No one ever does care to explain what pansexuality is. Only those who are LGBT have their identity more understood (not fully, most unfortunately).
Well, self-realization complete.
I AM NOT bisexual.
I am, in fact, PANSEXUAL.
Holy fuck
