When I started this blog, I swore that I was never going to apologize for not posting frequently enough. I'll just post whenever I want, I thought. It's not like I'm going to feel guilty if I don't.
Well, I'm going to go back on my word: sorry it's been so long since I posted! A few things have happened in the last month-ish of time that have taken me away from blogging. Want to know what they are?
So there it is, dear readers; you're totally caught up on my life.
Now stay tuned for our regularly scheduled programming...
Several weeks ago, I featured three new butch-centered clothing companies: Fourteen, Saint Harridan, and Tomboy Tailors. Since then, I've heard about many related companies--some focused on masculine women, some not--but all geared toward queer women, and all worth knowing about.
I get a lot of questions about how to know if you're butch. For many of us, this can be something *really* important to figure out. The following five-question quiz is a great guideline to help you figure out where you fall on the butchness spectrum. Keep track of how many A's, B's, and C's you get.
1. If you had to pick one of the following, would you say you have:
a. Too many watches or ties
b. Too many sweatshirts or baseball caps
c. Just the right amount of all four items
2. Hold your right pinky finger against your left thumb. Which is longer (measure from the base of each finger)?
c. they're exactly the same
3. If you were stranded on a desert island and could only have one type of entertainment, which would you choose?
a. A set of weights, a basketball, and a basketball hoop
b. An iPod loaded with your favorite music
c. Several dozen of your favorite books, plus a pen and paper
4. Have you ever broken a bone?
a. Yes, and I went to the doctor.
b. Probably, but I don't like doctors so I don't go.
5. Of the following three options, would you prefer to vacation in:
a. The Galapagos Islands, to check out wildlife
b. Tokyo, to immerse yourself in a fast-paced city
c. The next county over, because there are cool things close to home
Finished? Okay, now tally up your answers. Give yourself:
1 point for every "A"
2 points for every "C"
3 points for every "B"
Add up all the points (you should get between 5 and 15 points). Then make the following adjustments:
