Most of us have little nicknames for our partners or girlfriends--but some of you have told me that it's extra tough to come up with cute names for a butch. "Sweetie" and "honey" can feel a little generic sometimes--and cutesy names like "pookums" or "honey flower" might not exactly cut it for a butch.
So here are some suggestions for butch nicknames. Some of these are specific to lovers; #2, #3, and #6 would work for butch buddies just as well.
Butches: What do you like your girlfriend to call you? Do you have any nicknames for your butch buddies?
Everyone else: What are your nicknames or pet names for butches?
The BW Pride Project is off to an awesome start! 50 readers have signed up to participate, and 48 different Prides will be represented, spanning eight different countries! Check out these Pride Project maps:
How cool is that?? Let's keep going, dear readers--I want YOU to be involved in this. The more people who participate, the better this will be!
Fill out the form below if you'll be attending Pride (even if it's one of the locations already represented). All you've got to do is snap a few pics and write 1-2 sentences.
Hope you guys are as excited as I am!
Pride season is nearly upon us! Wouldn't it be cool to attend Pride celebrations all over the world to see what they're like? I was thinking about this the other day, and got an idea.
Go to your local pride, snap an interesting picture or two, write a couple sentences about that Pride celebration, and send it to me. I'll compile them and post a virtual pride-fest online, with your pics and descriptions. I want Prides from all over the world! Big cities, podunk towns, Asia, the deep South, the Midwest, Amsterdam, and anywhere else there are BW readers.
Sound good? Let's do it! Just fill out the form below to be part of the project. Think we can get 50 different Prides represented?? That's my (admittedly lofty) goal, but I think we can make it happen!
After I posted my index of blog topics for the past year, a Twitter follower mentioned that "femmes" aren't in the index. I'd considered including femmes as a separate topic, but decided this would be redundant, since so much of my writing on relationship and dating pertains to femmes and butch-femme relationships. (I list butch-butch relationships separately, though, since they tend to be much more of an exception than a rule.)
Still, that tweet got me thinking more specifically about the reasons I love femmes, even though I rarely date them myself. Here are a few big ones:
BTW, if you're someone who sees femmes romantically, check out Ivan Coyote's ode to femmes--it's great.
What makes you smile about femmes? What are some of the things you appreciate most about femmes?
This weekend, I made an index of topics I've covered on BW in the past year. I hope this makes it easier to check out posts on different subjects.
I know "tags" are supposed to serve this function, but to me they seem harder to use. If you all find the index more useful, maybe I'll just do away with tags altogether. Feedback welcome. Happy browsing!
