I need feminism because one of my co-workers thought I was a butch lesbian because I liked to weight lift, I have short hair, I act authoritative, and professional, I have a deep voice, and I don’t ‘talk like a girl’ (whatever that means…).

Why does weight lifting make me a lesbian?

Why can’t a straight girl or non-butch lesbian be authoritative?

I can’t help the way my voice is. 

BTW I’m straight but if I was a lesbian my preferences and the way I am doesn’t give you a right to stereotype me.
