I am butch - female bodied/masculine of center presenting. That means I feel comfortable with short hair and clothing designed for masculine people. I'm sometimes described as "queenie". I'm not into recreating heteropatriarchal gender dynamics - which really means I will open the door for you- but only because it is the polite thing to do and I would open the door for anyone. I don't respond well to expectations or pressure to play games/roles. I grew up with 5 older brothers and wasn't particularly feminine growing up so I'm still learning to recognize femininity within myself.
