Being a butch lesbian
With photo stories shot in Tokyo, India, New York, and London and in-depth features exploring mental health, older bodybuilders, and myths around masculinity — we present all the ways people around the world are redefining traditional tropes. Masculinity does not belong to men. A behaviour, a look, an attitude, women and non-binary people have as much right to masculinity as men do. In my own life, particularly as a queer person and as a soft butch, apparently , I am surrounded by butches, daddys, zaddys, studs, stems and masc femmes.

"Why I love my butch lesbian identity"
The internet is a wonderful place for learning. You can pick up another language, a new craft, find recipes, and so much more — for free. Thanks to the internet, it has never been easier to find and share information. And yet the internet is not without faults. Despite all the knowledge it spreads across the world, the internet is also a reliable source of terrible ideas — some of which seem to escape challenge.
Butch and femme are terms used in the lesbian  subculture to ascribe or acknowledge a masculine butch or feminine femme identity with its associated traits, behaviors, styles, self-perception, and so on. This concept has been called a "way to organize sexual relationships and gender and sexual identity". Both the expression of individual lesbians of butch and femme identities and the relationship of the lesbian community in general to the notion of butch and femme as an organizing principle for sexual relating varied over the course of the 20th century. The word femme is taken from the French word for woman.
