This was gonna be a review of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel but instead it’s just an entire thing about how Susie Myerson is a butch lesbian who works at a club surrounded by lesbian bars frequented by other butches and yet somehow she is not, officially, a lesbian, and neither is anybody else on this usually delightful show!!!
“Here I am, gaslighting myself, and all I want to do is buy some clothes.”
In the pool hall, my sweetheart and a close friend tease me one night: “unimpressive,” “pure luck,” “you aren’t that good.” They were trying to get my ire up so that an hour later when I told them to stare into each other’s eyes as I fucked my sweetheart’s body, I would mean it with a snarky competitive vengeance, I would mean it with power and control, I would be pushed to take what I want.
Being able to be soft in this world is important for a lot of folks; but also, I think it’s a privilege. And when you exist in a world saying “women look like this” and you do not look like this (and maybe even aren’t a woman), it takes being hard in order to thrive. There is beauty in being hard that way. There is a reason we tell our lovers their haircuts make them look “sharp.”
“Take My Wife” Season 2 is now available on iTunes and surprise, we loved it!
Most of my button-downs come from the men’s section, so they’re not made for busts like mine. Luckily, with practice and perseverance, I’ve figured a few things out.
“There are a lot of butches out there still. More than ever. And in a larger variety than ever. And that is what my project depicts, in style, body, race and gender non-conformity.”
Just a little vintage eye candy for you.
“Objectively, aesthetically, I find women’s clothes attractive. Just… on other women. But I’m intensely uncomfortable wearing them. There’s something about the way they’re made that make me feel like I’m on display. And that’s true, isn’t it? Women are always on display because they are always someone else’s property. Everyone else’s property.”
“We built a movement by telling each other our lives and thoughts about the way life should be. We cut against the grain and re-thought almost everything. “
In Donald Trump’s world, women without “normative” gender presentations are fat slobs and “traditionally attractive” women are bimbos and idiots.
“Who are these men noticing me? Who are these men giving me the long, soft stare, eyes holding mine like they got something for me, something they can’t talk about, something only eyes can pass along. Who are these men whispering ‘hi, papi’ to me? I don’t think I look more male today than I did yesterday.”
The term “brunch style” does not automatically imply a specific level of formality. My suggestions would depend on the occasion (Meet the parents brunch? Wedding brunch? Date brunch? Hungover with your friends brunch? Autostraddler meet-up brunch? Hip-hop party brunch?) and the venue (Five star restaurant? Pub? Trendy café?).

“When the doctor said that such and such a treatment was linked to health problems later in life, I didn’t even blink. I’ll hit 50 and keel over? Fine, I don’t care, get rid of these fucking pimples.”
Every two years the butches of the world convene to absorb each other’s butch powers.
