me: *talking about watching hilarious hair/make up fail videos to my twin* why on earth would u try to cut ur own bangs like that honey what’re u doin
uncles: uhhh lmao we wouldn’t know anything about that, we’re grown men
me:….was there a point to that? i am also male and an adult?? like?? u don’t need to be female to understand the humor in lack of common sense but no please don’t let me interrupt u from laughing about dick jokes or a grown man falling down a flight of stairs
idk my ~lesbian label~. i know im not butch but i definitely dont feel femme either? i also dont really know what it means to be femme. what does it mean
honestly i feel like i should hit u with some history or something here but i dont actually know a lot about the history of femme lesbians? (something i plan to change soon, i Really wanna get into it)
all i can explain is what it is for me, personally. like. i have some fashion-y traits that more stereotypically butch, i mean, i wear boots 100% of the time im outside and i have a side-shave haircut. but like. idk. i want to look pretty. i like to look pretty. i love to do my makeup and my hair and wear fruity perfumes and dresses with leggings and little button-up sweaters and jewellery. tbh a lot of the time i do not have the energy to do this because of The Depression™ but if i could look like i just came from a vogue photoshoot every day i would.
but i think the Important thing for me about presenting as a femme lesbian in public is the knowledge that i am not trying to look pretty for men? i do not want men to look at me. my appearance is not for them. it is for me, and for other women. i love to see my reflection in the glass as i walk by it and think ‘she really went all out today and she looks hot’. i love when other women compliment my hair, or my outfit. and at the moment, for me, that’s what’s being femme is about.
So apparently I have a thing for aliens having moments where this weird human cultural thing involving rings from their girlfriends suddenly clicks? This was supposed to be a quick doodle just to get it out, but I ended up doing some basic color. I almost made full-blown illustrations for the whole thing before I forced myself to stop.
i saw an art that called lance 'shark boy' so then of I thought 'sharkboy and lavagirl but lance and keith' and then i had to come ask you if youve ever thought about that because idk i feel like thats something you would like to think about
Very much so… :) I hope you don’t mind the redesigns though!
