My...how times have changed from when I came out. It used to be that we had a tight nit community. Yes, even tighter than the guys are now. Lesbians passing in the street immediately felt a common bond. We went out of our way to introduce ourselves and supported each other in our many endeavors.
Butches were polite. We were sensitive, caring and strong individuals. We instinctively opened doors for Femmes. We offered help when help was needed. Not only did we watch out for our Femme counterparts, but we enjoyed it. Okay...I'll admit that in today's day and age, that would be construed as chauvinistic on our part, but there was no harm intended.
Now, it seems that the lesbian community has its own set of rules. Things aren't as simple as defining yourself as a Butch, Femme, Top or Bottom. Now, we have Shebois, Andys and Tweens, among other names that I'm sure I'm just not familiar with.
My hopes are to get a Femme to agree to post with me on Sheboi in order to give you a well-rounded and balanced blog.
My first choice is a super sweet lady whom I've become quite fond of. She embraces her femininity and isn't afraid to use it. She's up with the times and isn't afraid to tell it like it is.
And no. I'm not naming names, yet. That would be rude.
Check back and wish me luck as this little butch throws herself at the mercy of this wonderful lady's feminine side!
I'll keep you posted!
