Femme lesbian needs $100,000 for documentary about femme lesbian invisibility
[quote]Never before has lesbian visibility been discussed on such a large scale. And never has it been so important to make the conversation happen. This is about introducing the world to a largely invisible portion of society— the lesbians that “look straight.” While out and proud, they still face the burden of invisibility on a day-to-day basis. Of feeling alone within the gay world, and lost within the straight world.
[quote]Without popular, positive representation, feminine lesbians will continue to remain a delegitimized population— and the LGBTQ community cannot afford to lose the faces of these women in the midst of a civil rights movement. The time for this documentary is now. If Jennifer Lopez can produce a television show on ABC Family about a lesbian-headed family, we know that there is a market for and momentum behind the subject matter.

This is not needed whatsoever! Femme lesbians are fawned over, masturbated to, and held up as the model of what every gay person should be. They are the #1 most acceptable queers in mainstream culture, and invariably used as the excuse to chastise anyone with atypical gender presentation. Not to mention that femme lesbians are way over represented in all media due to how much everyone already accepts them.

R4 and several subsequent posts prove why some education is needed, most of all in the gay & lesbian world.

Just ff R11/R!3, who conflates being a femme lesbian with a mandate to make juvenile ad hominem attacks on anyone who isn't, or who points out her ubiquitous nasty spamming.

But most fictional lesbians on TV are femme. I can't think of any butch lesbian characters on TV. And I am not talking about real lesbians like Ellen, but characters on TV. The lesbians on Glee are femme. The lesbians on the ABC family show "fosters" are femme. The lesbians on Greys anatomy are also femme.

Can we please talk about how pedestrians lesbifraus are? What happened to the Katharine Hepburns? Lesbians are so granola, so styleless, so lacking in personality barring man-hating bulldyke-ness, of course...

Yeah, I like intellectual with style - it's a rare breed
I like smart androgynous types, too.
Too much wanting to fit in and be straight-ish these days...

Uh, I'm a guy you fucking idiot. You're so beholden to gender roles you'd probably fall the fuck out if I shaved my pits.
Do you realize you have one of the most recognizable posting styles? Your lunacy can be seen from space.

Sheeee-it! Femme lesbians love attention from men, and would be lost without their ability to manipulate them. That's why they look the way they do.
They enjoy passing for straight.

Is Sandy B a femme lez? She's hot to me!

The women in those videos are femme if you define femme as "not transgendered".
They look like average, everyday soccer moms to me. There's nothing especially glamorous or even hot about them - which is what I tend to think of as femme.
|by Anonymous||reply 38||10/13/2013|
Totally agree, and I was just going to write that, R38. What is the point of being "femme" if it is just looking like a boring, average straight person? No style. Fearful, wishing to blend into the mediocre. Not a turn on.

BOUNDARIES are in danger of being VIOLATED in this thread. I am flabbergasted that no trigger warnings were issued - it feels very rapey that this was not done, obviously it was deliberately done to hurt me. I am telling you NOW that I don't have to tell you THEN.

I am a femme, they may not be bulldykes(?) but some of them look hardly femmes. Really harsh manlike facial features or your typical lesbian looking ordinary people...
