1. What’s a femme?
The Oxford English dictionary offers this definition:
femme, n. – 1. woman, wife (rare) In the U.S. colloq. (with pronunciation /fEm/), girl. Also, a lesbian who adopts a passive, feminine role. (opp. BUTCH, n.)
Although the OED claims to be the authority on the English language, I have a few issues with this definition. Most glaring to me is its assertion of passivity. I’m no shrinking violet! No wonder it is so difficult to break down stereotypes – they are literally coded into our very language.
2. Where do you get all these awesome pictures and videos from?
That’s a great question.. usually the interwebs! I claim no credit for the media that I use. Should you want a source link for any of the images, please let me know and I will get back to you.
3. Can I be mean to you because you’re gay?
Sure. But your comment will be deleted – from my blog and from my brain!
4. Can I see your dog?
Just kidding, this isn’t a frequently asked question. I’m just showing her off, like the proud mama I am!
