At the moment I am writing a kind of gay Bridget Jones. One question that keeps popping up for me is: why is masculinity a signifier of lesbianism? For example, when I tell people that I wanted to be a boy as a child, that ups my les-credentials. If I wear certain types of clothes, that lessens them. Why should “male” traits, behaviours or actions be seen as proof of “female” desire, and why are certain traits labelled masculine in the first place?
I don’t know, this kind of thing makes me feel irritated. I am me. Sometimes I wear boxers and a pink skirt. Sometimes I wear lipstick. Sometimes I make girls cry (allegedly “male”). Sometimes girls make me cry (“frequent”- sorry- “female”). I don’t wear skinny jeans. I am a vegetarian. I don’t have short hair. I do love women.
Some people are individuals. Get over it.
