Ive seen femme used as a gender by nb people though? Especially transfeminine people
yep! i know a lot of people who use transfemme as a descriptor for their gender!
but “femmes” (not transfemme) is a super broad category, and it includes femme men and femme non aligned nb people, who are NOT women. there are many mlm who identify as femme, there are non aligned nb people who also describe themselves as femme!
I AM NOT TRANSFEMININE, NOR DO I USE FEMME AS A GENDER FOR MYSELF!
everyone who i’ve met who ids as transfeminine or transfemme is woman-aligned and is okay with being included under the “women and woman-aligned people” umbrella! so… yee.
if any transfeminine mods or followers want to give perspectives, that would b great!
(please do not bring up the “femme is for lesbians only” discourse please. femme was taken from black LGBT+ people and ballroom culture (which was primarily black and latinx gay men, black and latinx trans gals, and black and latinx transfeminine people from my understanding) femme isn’t only for lesbians! if you wanna talk about it, make your own post. thanks! <3)
