I've been using Weebly quite a bit for other things, so when I decided to start a new blog, I thought I'd give it a try. I've been thinking for some time about writing a blog that deals chiefly with my butchness, dykiness, and sexual orientation more generally.
I've been butch for... oh... my whole life, I guess. Like many other butches, growing up I preferred boys' clothing, wished I could join the Boy Scouts, and always wanted short hair. But unlike many other butches, I married a (bio) man, wore makeup, and didn't realize I was gay until I was in my late twenties. I was, by no means, a "girly" girl, but although I never developed an affinity for heels or dresses, I was unmistakably female and never would have identified as butch, bi, queer, etc. My ex-husband says that the only physical clue he had was the way I took my wallet out of my back pocket--like a guy. But when we both look back, we can see many, many other clues--some of which I will talk about here.
I have plans for this page. Big plans, I tell you.
