What’s slowly shifting, say community insiders, is the acceptance of couples where both women are definitively masculine.
There is a large part of the butch/femme community who do not identify as lesbians and there are femmes who are interested in exclusively dating male identified butches/genderqueers/ FTMs.
“People are becoming more open-minded.”Heteronormative gender roles are a signature of lesbian circles, influencing everything from body language to hairstyle.
In the love department, dapper studs date sultry femmes, according to decades-old cultural rules that have a particularly strong foothold among black LGBT women. More masculine-presenting black lesbians are embracing the idea of romance between butch women.
So being trans makes me more shy and afraid because of my appearance and voice. share their stories and experiences with me or anything!
I feel like next pride in a few weeks, I have to wear something that says "I' M TRANS" so people know I still have breasts or something. I feel really hopeless with girls I know lesbians won't want me so I no idea what to do with myself. I get really sad and put myself down because I think I have no chance with anyone. Really, trying to date is one of those complex, and annoying things that nobody ever told you about.
