let me make you smile
I love butch women because, in their big black boots, they step squarely across a line. I love butch women for the same reasons I love sissy men, the transgendered, the slutty, the outrageous queers of every stripe; the women and men who sell sex, and the ones who use sex to heal; the fetishists whose eroticism is more complicated than anyone ever let on to us eroticism could be. I love butch women because, in the face of ridiculously constricting gender imperatives, they have the balls to say Fuck it - and to carve into our culturally empty space a different and powerfully confrontive way to live as a woman.

I love this.
