I love this:
“I know this is a big stereotype among butches, that we’re all stone, but we’re not. Stone is part of a sexual identity, and butch is part of a gender identity, and they are not inevitably linked.” -Sinclair Sexsmith
Nicely put, my friend. Thanks for so succinctly separating sexual and gender identities. Some butches are stone (yum!), some definitely aren’t (yum!), and then there’s that delicious ground covering all of the in between and beyond. Luckily, some of us femmes love it all.
