MAKE UP, ESPECIALLY FEMME MAKEUP, CAN BE/IS JUST AS ANDROGYNOUS 

MASCULINITY IS NOT THE DEFAULT FOR ANDROGYNY AND TREATING IT AS SUCH IS REALLY TOXIC AND AWFUL PLEASE STOP

okay okay okay okay okay okay okay okay okay okay i get it like fashion things are fun and like i understand that like everyone can do whatever fashion they want (sauf when its culturally appropriative) and that’s really cool and nice and self-exploration is nice and cool and i’m probably just a shit head cos i do femme things always while having the white-trans-masc-skinny-boi-genderqueer-creature-so-hot-in-MTL-right-now style/multiple privileges that go along with that identity

but like

every time that butches touch some fashion thing that femmes and girls have been doing and not getting any fancy credit for in our communities and hten some fucking boy or butch or whatever puts it on their goddamn body and everyones sitting reblogging it because omg NEW TREND omg NEW STYLE SO EXCITING

like

no

fuck off

butches reinscribing femme fashion styles as butch

~so radical~*~ (aka BORING AND SHITTY)

omg butch in SOMETHING NEW its like you REINVENTED THE WHOLE STYLE
just like
i guess what i’m saying is 
like, when yr getting all this credit/hot points/whatever for wearing something that femmes get either little attention from queers or harassment from others, like how special do you feel? does this shit cross yr mind? do you have no idea what i’m talking about? am i just a bitter queen who hates it when butches touch anything? (probably, but also, i think i have a point)
**edit** okay so- wanna say another thing: i don’t want this to come off as gender policing, i think that there are way bigger categories than butches n boys vs femmes n girls and a lot of us inhabit the space in between and that’s really cool and we spend a lot of time coming up wiht fashion things that feel good and right and fun because there is no roadmap to being in between or a gender weirdo.
but, like if we consciously as a community value our femmes and stop valuing things that have been coded feminine only when they’re on white masc bodies then like i’ll stop complaining so maybe if you wanna wear whatever without having to worry about ppl maybe thinking what i just said maybe invest a lot more energy into this part of the project hey.

omg cosigned SO HARD.

thotyouknew asked: I think you don't understand the concept of weaponized femininity? Like the whole point is to embrace femininity on your own terms and not cater to the male gaze. I wear a shit ton of makeup and most guys truly don't like it, but, like, I still do it because I have the agency to choose my own aesthetic not based on what men find attractive. Does that make sense? It's about women's agency taking down the systems, not the ACTUAL tools.

we can personally reclaim or wear as much makeup for ourselves and find it personally empowering if we want to. but that is about it. its not radical.

Again, hi, I’m another mod on here and I really strongly disagree with this response. 

Just want our followers to know that we don’t represent one unified view, and this response does not speak for me or to me at all. I really really strongly believe that reclaiming femininity by any means necessary is really really important and super radical.

well, at least there’s this. jesus christ fyhf is so fucking terrible at being fuck yeah about so much hard femme. why the fuck does anyone ever think it’s a good idea to make a blanket statement about what’s radical for feminine people to do?

like srsly there is so much makeup and there are so many different practices of wearing makeup that exist in the world, including products and cultural practices totally outside giant corporate marketing and manufacture. there are so many people to whom femininity is denied where wearing makeup is a radical assertion of their femininity despite constant and systemic efforts to deny them legitimized femininity and/or womanhood.

destroy the belief that ‘gender neutral’ or ‘androgynous’ means dressing like a boy

destroy the belief that masculine is the default

There were literally two people not wearing pants at Faggity last night. This fucking city, y’all. This fucking city.

choosing vulnerability is not an accident, it is not weakness, it is not being too much; choosing vulnerability when interdependence, feelings and pain have been programmed in us as faults, is hard fucking work. let’s do it together.

tgstonebutch:

I saw Leading Ladies today. I really enjoyed the butch-femme dynamic in the film, the way it was expressed through dance. I loved the femme character Mona’s gender and the way it drew out the butchness in Toni, celebrated it in her, how powerful her gender and embodiment was. They had a delicious electricity. Seeing it brought home how few butch-femme relationships I’ve seen in queer film, how precious it felt to have that dynamic be there, especially in the sex scene and the dance scenes between them. I also particularly loved the way Mona stood up for herself in the relationship.

to all my beauteous femmes~ on a day where it’s incredibly easy to seek validation from a partner or romantic interest (and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that!), let’s double the love by showering ourselves as well!

share a selfie, a favorite outfit, or anything that makes you feel…
