Me and butch go way back. We had a brief falling out in my early 20's, we rekindled our relationship later that decade. We now enjoy each other immensely, albeit with some disagreements here and there. Relationships are a growing process. more

"Butch is beautifully mind blowing to me. It's the contrasts of masculinity and hardness in a person who still has the soft skin of woman that drives me crazy. It's the refusal of butches to kowtow to society's "should's" that I continually admire. There truly is nothing sexier than butch to me."more

Being butch has always been part of my queer identity. When I was young my friends and I loved to talk about “what kind of butch are you?” Now that I’m headed into my silver fox years it’s just an identity that has sat well with me for a long time.
