Butches and Jobs
I've been thinking lately about the myriad ways in which sexual orientation, gender identification, and gender presentation affect our occupational choices. We might imagine multiple ways this could happen:
Of course, lesbians can do anything. We can be (and are) everything from ballerinas to surgeons, from firefighters to custodians. But I know that in my own life, I've gravitated toward work that lets me be myself, and away from work that tends to favor or privilege those who conform to gender norms.
I'm really curious about what your experiences have been. I would LOVE it if you would fill out the following brief survey and send it to me! I'll tally the results and report them (anonymously, of course) in a future post:
Thanks for participating. The more people who fill it out, the better and more interesting the results are likely to be, and the more interesting it will be to read about in a few days. :-)

I am a butch who loves people for what is in their hearts, whether that be femme, butch or something else.

I feel the same way, the person inside has always been more important thn the outer skin, although I've never dated a butch doesn't mean that one could take hold of my heart = )

No all of us Femmes are hard work. You just haven't found the right one yet is all. My Honey (who is butch) and I balance each other out jsut fine, and Im not one of those types that wears makeup, and has to have my nails done....I'm what I consider myself as a Basic Femme.
