In the event that you donвЂ™t truly know me personally you might not understand that We identify as queer.
Individuals are usually amazed whenever we let them know we date females, too, because I can вЂњpassвЂќ as being right. We donвЂ™t have the stereotypical markers of queerness that many people look out for in queer females: tattoos, quick locks, rainbows and Xena (hey Haydee!), flannel shirt, etc. (trust in me, We attempted the faux hawk thing also it didnвЂ™t work with me personally!).
I identify as вЂњfemmeвЂќ and We possess and think itвЂ™s great. My femme ness does not make me any less queer, radical, or feminist, because i will be working out agency to determine just just what queerness and womanhood look and feel like for me personally. In addition, stereotypes that expect lesbian ladies become butch, and homosexual guys to be feminine further perpetuate heteronormativity and erase the mandatory difference between gender identification and orientation that is sexual.
