Episode 5: Where Have All the Butches Gone?

Recorded live via kpiss.fm, in which sexy people Jax and Isaac join us as we yell a lot and discuss butches and transmen and the lesbian milieu, Jax saving the Victator from bullies, Isaac being a good looking dude, all of our articles on Flux Weekly, how “Roey Thorpe is the man,” claims that butches are disappearing, hostility from some old guard lesbians about transitioning, how definitions of butchness are context dependent, litmus tests for masc/femme, having sex with people you aren’t attracted to, how Jax is the reason Victator is gay, making Barbies and Kens gay-make-out, the multiplicity of identifications, the experience of coming out as trans, the differences in learning about queerness while growing up in Chelsea vs. Upstate vs. the South, college experimentation, realizing that trans is an option–that life can be better than fine, generational and cultural shifts, identifying as fluid, the self-challenge of “if I were coming out now, what would be different?”, being a little girl who wanted to be a boy but who liked being a girl but who wanted to do all the things the boys did, the different factions in the LGBTQIA communities, how the LGB have benefited more from the support of the Ts than the Ts have benefited from LGBs, emphasizing difference to emphasize sameness, how comfortable or not comfortable our families are with us, middle aged dyke or American mom or German lady?, how gaydar doesn’t translate to other nations, butch bisexuals, how contextual definitions of masculinity and femininity change over time, how the Victator feels inside, being rigid about one’s identity or not so much, the shorthand convenience of identifying as a top or bottom, FLUXWEEKLY.COM, did we say that?
