what is femme? do i have to be a girl to be femme? or a woman? can a man be femme? can i be neither man nor woman at times and still be femme? or is that just not allowed?
is femme a presentation or an expression? or is it a style you enact? do you have to do femme? if femme can be did, then there times femme is done potentially implying that it can’t be done at times when it is attempted to be did. is femme a being, a way of thinking and understanding the world? what is femme?
can i be femme some of the time? & not others? would you associate femme with me? i think most people would not. definitely not. do i have to be 100% femme all the time to be femme, or can i be femme when i choose?
this is the hardest part of the day: choosing my outfit. i have a standard that includes tshirt/tank top, hoodie/crewneck, jeans/shorts, sneakers/boots, snapback/5panel. i usually start with the tshirt/tank top or hoodie/crewneck and build from the there. sometimes it the bottoms that can influence the whole outfit. but if i get a new pair of shoes, a new hat, a new shirt or a new anything, that shit is getting worn the day of or the next day for sure. do i want to wear a hoodie and hide my long hair or do i want to wear my hair down with a snapback backwards? my outfit of the day #OOTD is art, it’s an expression. this is the hardest part of the day.
i am a self-proclaimed queerbabe. i am declaring myself to be an object of desire, to be gazed up and you “like” it. i use the hashtag #queerbabe when i do my #selfie (s). when i am with friends or my love <3, we are #queerbabes. i encourage you to use those tags as well. so femme. queerness has always been a way for me to open up possibilities, not limit them.
do i have to wear heels, do my makeup, wear a dress and clutch a purse to be femme? because my partner doesn’t even do half those things and she is totally read as femme. does my facial hair just signify too much man, could it never be femme? does not having facial hair make femme intelligible? does my love for fashion, bubble baths, skin care products, selfies and intimate conversations not say femme? what makes a person femme? please, try and define it.
what is femme? is there a disconnect between my expression and your interpretation? say it again, that i am not femme. again, is there is a disconnect between my expression and your interpretation? this is a self-proclomation: i am femme.
