Episode 6. Butch & Femme

Hard Femme, Soft Butch, Futch over easy. On this week’s episode we’re discussing Butch & Femme. Have we lost sight of the historical context of these identifiers? How have they changed? How is Butch more than a haircut but also… often seen as a god damn haircut? On this episode we slip into something comfortable (flannel) and try to make sense of the language we use to talk about butch & femme; the way our clothes, voices, and behaviors help us convey to the world who we are — for the moment.
