Masculinity is not such a strong word for me. I resonate more with Butch, as I feel like butch women and especially butch lesbians have a proud history of being strong and tender for one another, their lovers, and their community. I had a butch-on-butch relationship in seattle and my lover and I were talking about the "masculine of center" phrasing. I DO think it's powerful and cool, but I also really resonated when she said "I'm not masculine, I'm handsome." At the time (2011), we started a Seattle social group for butch women called "Handsome Gals." So I was excited to see the word "handsome" in your project. That said, for me I also feel very two spirit. I like to say I am a man and a a woman, a boy and a girl. For me, my more male selves are not necessarily about what roles we fulfill during sex or even in domestic situations. It is more about body language, clothing, some things about the way I relate. Coming out queer at age 14 (in 1980), my gender and sexual orienation have both been queer and not always clear to me as different. I did a lot of things I thought dykes were supposed to do- and I enjoyed them! Like playing the drums, learning construction, not pursuing professions that required "feminine" clothing. I sometimes look at the clothing options today and think my life would have had even more abundance if butches could have dressed the ways they do now in professional environments back then. But I love the work I do, teaching kids and families about spirituality and social justice. And I love having a very switchy relationship with my femme beloved.
