happy wrath month, im here to remind you all (yes, ALL) that butch lesbians do not exist solely to fulfill your sexual desires. treating butches like objects and sexually harassing them under their posts is not acceptance or advocacy. it is fetishization. it is disgusting. we are not your daddies, we are not your masc queens, we are not here for you to project all of your “punch me in the face” fantasies. if you have ever:
- called a butch lesbian “daddy” without permission
- commented on a butch lesbians physical appearance in a sexual way without permission
- used “but butches are so sexy, how could anyone hate them!” as a positive notion on a post about treating butches like normal people
you are part of the problem. you are not an ally to us. you need to do better. butches have feelings and emotions just like everybody else, and we don’t want to be cyber-catcalled any more than feminine people do. this does double for trans butches and lesbians of color, especially black lesbians.
butches are not a fetish. we are living, breathing, loving people. treat us as such.
